Be honest about your background check - HR will learn the truth, eventually, and the company is able to work w/ some types criminal records.
You have to be willing to be flexible and understand you are working with people who have developmental and/or mental health issues. It is impossible, when working w/ actual people, to predict what each day will be like. Schedules change, clients change their minds, things happen. If you are rigid and inflexible in planning your day, this can be a very difficult job.
Don't be afraid to ask questions! You will be working with a variety of clients - it is reasonable to have questions or concerns! Ask questions, request extra training or explanation, and utilize the resources available to help you.
Don't do it. You will end up hurt and broke
