Therapeutic Staff Support (Current Employee) – York, PA 17402 – August 11, 2016
Good place to start right out of college. Its fun getting to know your clients, however,parents are another story. Parents are not involved in their childs life, can be hard to get ahold of, etc. Tranfering skills to clients works in the school setting, but the parents don't follow through, thus resulting in the childs behavior continuing.
Technical Specialist III (Current Employee) – Lakewood, CO – October 17, 2016
TSS is a business casual environment and has a pretty good open door policy. For a small company their benefits and amenities are pretty solid. Free snacks/candies in the main lobby as well. They do a fairly good job picking their customers as well so a decent amount of time is spent supporting these customers. Really good employee longevity as well, some people have been here over 5 years.
Positive culture, management is helpful and willing to invest in growth
The culture can be off at times because every employee can be rude at times

Owner/Operator (Current Employee) – Hooker, OK – April 10, 2015
TSS - Taylord Speciaized Services is an agency that evolved from years of helping others over 5 years in China. Officially registered as a business less than 1 year.
As a foreigner living in China, there are many things to know other than the language. My accumulated knowledge, contacts, and assistants in China and abroad are able to help individuals and businesses in many ways.
Referrals and social media has been powerful in increasing our customer base, more than we can handle at this time. The hardest part of the job is building a freelance business up to a formal agency with limited financial resources. The good problem is we have too many customers, and we are working quickly to find solutions to better meet their needs.
The most enjoyable part of the job is connecting with people from all over the world and having satisfied customers.
A few of my responsibilities as owner/operator/agent includes: *Travel internationally, as needed *Work from home or office *Speak English, plus Chinese or 1 other language *Marketing & Advertising on social medias *Maintain and design website *Maintain customer/client/contacts database *Maintain relations with affiliated partners, and make new *Have knowledge about living, working, studying, traveling in China or the United States *Work long hours (for international communications) *Work alone and communicate with other second language English speakers *Maintain accounting, collections, and payments *Keep current of international employment and tax laws *Develop programs, policies, and procedures *Buildmore... teams, and team leaders for various jobs/tasks/programs *Delegate work orders to associates, & follow upless
Work from home/anywhere in the US or China
No set work hours, must respond to urgent requests
Flexible hours are good but everything else stinks.
Interim Administrative Supervisor (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – January 6, 2015
Overall I'd never in a million years recommend this job to anyone. However, if you're straight out of college looking for something to give you a taste of the field but not have the work schedule of a full time job then it has its benefits. The pay is pretty horrible but this is not an office job so you get to wear more relaxed clothing and you get a lot of time outside in the summer. You can easily do this job while holding down a second job or going back for school. You have very limited contact with your coworkers so there's no real way to develop many friendships on that aspect.
The hardest part of the job is that you're working with children and families with disabilities. There is no glossing that this is difficult. You have to constantly be on your toes to help out that child or family. The upside is when you finally break through the feeling is the most amazing. Imagine being with the family of a non-verbal child when he/she speaks for the first time because of things that you have helped to implement. Nothing compares.
Management is a different story. The immediate supervisors are fantastic. They do try to help out staff and try to be as accessible as they can. However, management could care less about things going on in your life. Also, you could lose hours and go from working 30 hours a week to 10 at the drop of a hat so be prepared that no one cares if you're going to lose your house. Considering they recently could have cared less that over half their staff didn't get paid, this is not a place I'd ever recommend.
Amazing families, flexible hours
Constant fear for losing hours, horrible administration, pay vs work is not even close, LONG hours
Loved the people I worked with but found the office and management lacking
Therapeutic Support Staff (TSS) (Former Employee) – Sharon, PA – December 1, 2014
A typical day at work was in the field with clients who happen to be school age children. Most of which were developmentally and/or mentally disabled or affected. I would assist these clients in proper actions in public as well as basic life skills in society, the home and in school. I enjoyed the kids I worked with but did not like the staff, management or upper management. I found that everyone passed the buck when it came to responsibility and accountability.
Positively influencing a childs life, instilling needed life skills for their future interaction within society
The company in of itself was poorly handled, maintained and managed with a very high turnover
TSS (Former Employee) – Chambersburg area – November 23, 2014
As a TSS I would go to schools and homes to work with children and parents teaching them how to cope with autism. In the school setting I would follow the child around to his classes and give him coping skills and tools that help him deal with his outbreaks and behavioral issues that he may face. At homes I would work with both the child and parent enforcing the tools that I have given the child and to give the parent tools and skills to help redirect the child and encourage good parenting. I have had to deal with children throwing themselves on the floor and refusing to move an just shouting and screaming. However I have had children that pick up the skills they need and do very well in changing situations. This is the most enjoyable time is to see the children that you work with succeed in areas where they once struggled with. The company that I worked for was a great company. The management was willing to work with me in getting as many hours as possible. However the hardest part is that the hours are never consistent because the children that you work with miss school and that affects you financially sometimes in a big way.
Tower Technician (Former Employee) – Alpharetta, GA – November 20, 2014
Its a very demanding job that requires you to be on your toes at all times. Handling high tech and very expensive cellular equipment and being able to properly install them hundreds of feet high onto a cell tower. As long as its not raining you will work. Hot or cold doesn't matter so if you can't handle the elements its not for you. I didn't mind the work it was the people I worked with that made things difficult. I am the type of person that will work hard for someone that I respect but will loose all motivation if I continually am disrespected and picked on by co workers and management. Most enjoyable part of the job was when I would be given a task and simply left alone to complete it without someone hovering over me or disrespecting me cause I wasn't as fast as the guy that's done it for 10+ years. The benefits were great but the pay is lower as an effect.
Benifits and predium
Disrespectful co workers, alot of drugs in the crews, management will only take care of you if they feel your worth money to them.
