Too much of a family company
Staff (Former Employee), Northeast OhioMarch 16, 2015
Pros: flexible schedule
Cons: no room for advancement
You think family operated and think "they like to support you and your family, flexible" and while this can be true, this family will hire you and tear you down. There is little to no training and development and they expect you to be a "yes" man. As soon as you question them, you can kiss your job goodbye. Directors, who seem to have power, are just pawns in their game. They hire their family, without them having necessary job qualifications. Overall, you become overworked, underpaid, and under appreciated.

Excellent Team
Qualified Mental Health Specialist (Former Employee), Cuyahoga Falls , Ohio - Bedford, OhioAugust 1, 2014
Pros: it is truly a team environment
Cons: location was my only issue
Working with kids who have behavior and disability issues that effect their education. I had a great team to work with. Most Education Alternative locations will say the same thing. The job can be very emotional. The important thing is to pay close attention to detail and follow training. The hours are great. The pay is real decent. The Supervisors listen to team members.

Effective Education Option for students having Emotional Disturbance
Intervention Specialist (Former Employee), Bedford, OHSeptember 27, 2012
Pros: the entire building is a cohesive team.
There is a great deal of structure, which is necessary to meet the needs of the students. I learned many new organizational skills, especially regarding Alternative Assessments (state mandated). There are some warm, caring administrators, and it is clear that the common goal is the success of the students. My colleagues were supportive and encouraging. The most difficult part of the job was seeing the struggles that some of the students deal with on a daily basis. The most enjoyable part of this position is seeing the success of the students, knowing that we aided them in the process. The students know that they have options in life, and a good future may be had by working hard and applying the life skills that they are learning.
