Treated like dogs and paid worse
Autism Associate (Former Employee) – Orangeville, ON – 26 February 2018
Front-line staff are not treated fairly. We are told we are the "back bone" of the company but we are paid the lowest in the field, management does not care if personal emergencies come up, no regard for our own families. They expect us to go above and beyond and not be compensated for it, not even a thank you. When staff give other staff "awards" they are not given out.
The people we support do not have the resources to build better quality of lives, no programs, behaviour therapists who are absent. Staff are reprimanded for bringing someone to the hospital as a precaution.
Too many managers, directors, HR, etc.
It's a job, Good vacation time
Expected to be a robot, not a person
