ABA Therapist (Current Employee) – Fairlawn, OH – March 14, 2018
TES sounds like a great company and opportunity at first. But since I’ve started I wish I never joined. They’re very unorganized and administration is self centered. Staff is worried about taking a day off, making a mistake or getting on the bad side of a few key administrators because they will be treated very poorly and often bullied. It’s a scene right out of the movie, “Mean Girls.” HR is nonexistent and doesn’t care. We don’t receive the materials we need and the bottom line is all that matters, not the students. At the end of the school year I will be seeking employment elsewhere and have heard coworkers planning to leave as well.

Once you fall out of favor with management based upon poor on site directors trying to cover their own mistakes, it is over. The paperwork took so much time that it was "suggested" that the paperwork comes first. This company does not value passion and dedication. In terms of financial remuneration, after 10 years I was given $1.00 more an hour. If you do not complain and just smile pretending everything is fine, you will survive. Dedication and love of students is not rewarded. Management gossips about everyone who falls out favor and has favorites which are always right even when they are completely clueless about the intricacies of the paperwork and are believed when they blame others. They will do anything to keep the client which includes throwing dedicated employees under the bus.
I cannot think of one
Directors assigned for school are incompetent, long hours, too many students
Behavior Intervention Specialist (Current Employee) – Troy, MI – February 26, 2018
It's a great environment to be in. The supervisors are great and it is incredibly rewarding working with the clients that we see and seeing them make progress. It is also great that there are speech and OT services available as well.
Volunteer Work (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – December 4, 2017
I loved volunteering here. I got the chance to observe physical, occupational and speech therapists and ask them any questions I had. When I did my observation hours, I decided to want to become a behavioral therapist.
No lunch breaks, management is terrible, breaks during the year for school closing is unpaid, etc, etc... It is easy to get hurt when working with the students because the crisis intervention procedures are bogus and there are no safe furniture or places to put students if they are going through a bad behavior cycle. If you come into work hurt they have no compassion and will not move you in order for you to heal.

Great place to work. They worked with my schedule as it fluctuates often. I changed from working with clients- providing therapy, to only completing assessments. They were always willing to change my job duties as my lifestyle changed.
Occupational Therapist (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – April 25, 2017
This company is great to work with you based on location and full-time/part time status. It is an hourly rate, so some people choose to work over the summer or have a break, whatever fits your lifestyle.
English Tutor (Former Employee) – Pasadena, CA – February 9, 2017
Commute to branch office was 40 mins- they will tell you that you will only need to travel to their main office for the beginning and end of the month but you will be there almost every week. They will call you in for little editing mistakes on paperwork, or if you wrote in black ink- ALWAYS CARRY A BLUE PEN WITH YOU! Pay is descent if the hours were more. They will only allow you to work an hour and a half with students and only provide you with 3 students at one time.
Speech Therapist Assistant (Former Employee) – South Pasadena, CA – December 12, 2016
A typical day at work consisted of scheduling patients for appointments, talking with my supervisor about the progress of patients, discussed progress with the teachers of my patients, left homework for the family to work on, and reported daily progress notes on the patients. I learned a software system to document progress notes. The management was easy to talk to, if there were issues that needed to be discussed. The hardest part of my job was driving between schools to see patients. The most enjoyable part of my job was making my own daily work schedule.
