Rewarding Job in an industry that is gaining potential
Behavior Technician (Current Employee) – Michigan – August 13, 2019
Ive worked for a few ABA companies and have experienced a lot of the same things. Working with kids I understand the need to go to school so the hours are mostly afternoons or evenings. My schedule is typically 25-30 hours a week but the pay is 18-21 dollars an hour. Which they usually pay more for a part time schedule. If I were to go work a minimum wage job I would have to work 40 hours a week to make the same money. The freedom working with EAS as a part time employee gives me the opportunity to make the same amount of money working less time which gives me more time for things I enjoy. When working with children/families its not always about the money.
The staff is supportive, friendly, easy to communicate with in sometimes stressful situations. A 401k with a 4% match is hard to find these days. Working with families to reschedule sessions is also a bonus. What I like the most is that there is no work drama and you don't have a supervisor telling you what to do all the time. As long as i'm doing my job correctly.

To many cooks in the kitchen to run effective company. The director /leadership puts their hands in everything and gives no autonomy to the staff. No one voice is heard, it is a mosh of everything all at once. There is no organization. Low hours, will never reach full time status. No benefits like personal time off or decent compensation.
This was a part-time job for me - mostly evenings. I told them that I get off of my day-time job at 3:45 so they needed to keep that in mind when giving me clients. They kept trying to assign me clients at 4:00 that were 30-40 mins away from my main job. When I told them that I couldn't do that they said "we expect our therapists to travel up to 45 mins between clients". If this is your full-time job sure, but not as a part time job. The framework that they use for their therapy wasn't my favorite either. It was all DTT, no NET or anything else. Just didn't like it

Company is unorganized. ABA therapy implemented only works for about year, then the kids get bored with doing the same thing over and over again. Don’t get paid when parents cancel sessions. And you only make minimum wage for drive time instead of full 15/hr.

Room for advancement, and improving skill set. Very supportive, friendly and fun staff from CEO, BCBA's, and other therapists. Must be comfortable working independently, and on a team. Open to trying new approaches for clients.

I worked at CEAS's Chicago location for 2 1/2 years as a behavior technician. The work environment was fun. It's rewarding to see the kids make so much progress, see the family's reaction and be a part of something so wonderful! Driving can be annoying, but drive time is compensated, which is awesome. There's a ton of opportunities for advancement and they really put effort into their employee happiness. Awesome Christmas parties, birthday gifts and recognition from upper management. Supervision is great and it's a good learning experience for students getting their BCBA.
