Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) (Former Employee) – Chula Vista, CA – September 7, 2018
Very professional and well-established company. I started ABA with this company and so far, no other company compares to their professionalism and organization. They actually do give hours and you can pick up more hours by subbing other cases depending on your willingness to work. I am technically a part-time employee but I worked about 40 hrs/week (without client cancellations) which was good pay-wise but you pretty much have to work all day with (long) breaks in between. No benefits offered as well. Training wasn't really that helpful so you have to be able to work and learn independently but BCBAs are professional and helpful if you ask them to help you.

I love this job! It's wonderful working with the kiddos, and I personally needed experience with working with special needs, and this is a great place to gain that experience.
There are a few negatives though if you aren't aware of them. If you are planning on leaving a job to work for ACES, don't. Keep your job until you're done with training, because it takes almost 2 months for your license to come through and you can't work during that period.
You are not guaranteed hours!!!! And you don't get hours made up when clients cancel.
The pay isn't all that great either and is impossible to live on with the little hours.
In conclusion, this job is great but you better have a second job!
Experience working with kiddos, ABA training, paid training, rewarding work, requesting time-off is no problem
No guaranteed hours, long delay between training and first client, impossible just having this as your only job

If you are looking for a job to make extra cash, this is a great place. Been there for the past 3 years working about 8 hours a week (on Saturday), but their are opportunities to work more. Unfortunately for me, since I already had a FT job, it was hard to get more work during the weekday. For the most part, I earned my extra cash by working every Saturday for 8 hours and holidays when needed.

BEHAVIORAL THERAPIST (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA – June 9, 2018
This position has taught me a lot about child development, applied behavior analysis, and data management. There wasn't enough opportunity for career advancement, not enough hours sustain a suitable living situation.
BEHAVIORAL THERAPIST (Current Employee) – Los Angeles County, CA – April 18, 2018
Aces provides wonderful services to it's clients. Overall, a great company to work for if ABA is what your heart and soul wants to do. There is a lot of longevity in the company. Many of my co-workers have been with the company 10 + years.
You can set your own hours, supervisors are helpful, pay is decent
Hours, driving to and from work locations in traffic
Behavioral Interventionist (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – March 2, 2018
I worked for this company for 2 years. Never got a raise, and more was ALWAYS expected of me. No control of schedule and no HR at the San Jose location- they all moved to LA (there was a rep there when I started...). Managers and co-workers all were great and just wanted to help the children. If you want to do ABA, I recommend working at CARD.
Unreliable schedule, constant management changes, High expectations with no raise
Behavioral Interventionist (Current Employee) – Carlsbad, CA – February 21, 2018
I’ve been working for ACES for about 5 months now and I’m so glad I went with ACES. I’ve received so much support through the entire process, from training, to my first few days working, and even now. I truly feel that everyone cares about me as a person, my professional development, and about the families we work with. My supervisors do their absolute best to provide the best services to the families and they always answered any questions I had and showed me how to do different things. I’m moving away from their service area and I’m sad because I don’t know if the ABA providers in my new area will be as supportive, and I hope that their data taking method is as simple as the one ACES employees use. Over all, I’ve never had a better work experience. I know this sounds like a lame advertisement haha but it really is great.
Supportive management, great paid training, easy digital data taking method
If anything, it took like three weeks for me to get my first clients.

Other then the fact that this job is about training children like dogs, there is no stability and they tell you that you'll be working all these hours but then after you get hired they tell you it's not guaranteed. Work here only if you really like to control children through ABA.
Poor management with the lowest form of communication
Behavioral Therapist (Former Employee) – California – January 6, 2018
The environment was stressful and management was extremely poor. Not enough hours and when requested, there is always a poor excuse. The only gratifying part of the job was the clients and their families.
Encouraging place to work filled with people who genuinely care.
Case Manager (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – October 3, 2017
ACES was a fantastic place to work. The staff is friendly and always willing to help. They encourage you to grow and learn, and if you put forth the effort they reward you. It's a collaborative work environment, with the management always wanting to better themselves and the company.
