Pros: pay scale was sufficient for my degree. knowledge of autism and assisting parents.
Cons: excessive travel without compensation, added hours without pay for traveling at end and beginning of shift, required home visits which became life threatening and very dangerous.
I enjoyed the experience as a TSS. Traveling was necessary. Home visits and school settings. Paper work involved. Clients changed periodically as did miles per day. Co-workers were great to work with, however, scheduling to accommodate some staff were inconsistent and became financially more to work than pay compensated for.
