ABA Therapist (Former Employee) – Fairlawn, ohio – August 6, 2018
TES has been a nightmare in so many ways. Management is horrible and brings employees down. The entire school is very unorganized and bureaucratic. If corporate did an anonymous survey they would see unsatisfied employees looking for employment elsewhere and a laundry list of human resource violations.
Staff is broken down in two groups, The one group is great. The other (management) is not. School is a great location
Management often actually takes the time to acknowledge team members and their successes, which is amazing. Supervision for my role within the client home has been weekly, which is also awesome. No benefits for part time but, 30+ hours is full time and comes with benefits and paid days, etc. Also tuition assistance as well.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – May 18, 2018
Greeting clients and working with therapist. Total Education Solutions works with all types of learning disabilities. The clinic brought in children with speech and occupational needs. The majority of the referral to the clinic were children with Autism . I really enjoyed working with the kids and their families. Most families were just learning of their Childs diagnosis and were very happy to all the options. The working environment was professional but fun.

I get to interact with creative, passionate people on a daily basis. I like knowing others are committed to finding positive solutions for the kids and families we serve. I have a long commute which isn't always the best but I love who I work with which makes it all worthwhile.

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapist (Former Employee) – South Pasadena, CA – May 1, 2018
Unfair work place, would not recommend. No onsite training. Company promises growth but does not offer it. I spent several years working there, and was promised a promotion and never got it. I had to eventually move on to another company. Hardest part of the job is not being able to help the students due to lack of company support.

Working at TES continues to be a great journey for me. I started working here over 4 years ago and I have been learned so much about the field. I started working as a HPC provider in homes while I was in college to gain experience. After gaining some initial experience I started working in the school as an assistant and had the opportunity of working with all different age groups and skill levels. Next, I transitioned into the role of a ABA Therapist. This helped me to decide where I wanted to go with my career. After deciding the route I wanted to take my supervisors trained me, guided me, and gave me the experiences I needed to feel confident on taking on more responsibilities. In addition to how passionate everyone is about our clients making progress the company always provides additional room for growth.

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.
Speech Pathologist (Former Employee) – Detroit – March 9, 2018
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.
