Program Manager(Digital (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – 13 October 2017
Working for Depaul was a wonderful experience. The organization had great ideas and was willing to to take on new ones to make it better but it was grant funded so there weren't many opportunities to expand.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Florence, SC – 11 September 2017
The administrator was racist and a drunk. She would come in with alcohol on her breath, hardly every be at the office and would leave the RCD to do most of the work. She showed favoritism and it was usually to the employees that needed to be written up or terminated. That current Administrator was finally removed after many great RCDs resigned or was removed due to her lack of support and cut thoat behavior. They finally have decent administrator in there but the cut throat Med Tech that assisted the administrator is now th RCD. Poor residents.
This place is the Devils Workshop.Employees are overworked and no appreciation given back.Residents are neglected due to understaffed. DePaul just wants to make money off families and not give what the residents need to keep them comfortable.As far as caring about staff members, don't hold your breath.One day you have a job and you believe you are secure the next day your terminated for the simplest of things.And not to mention,unless you are on the favortism list with Administrators ,and you happen to have accident and out on doctors orders,you may lose job with no back pay.I would never recommend this place to my enemies. I cannot finish all reasons not to work here,if I did it would become a book.
A typical work day consisted of breaking down and rebuilding pallets. Management was poor and they did not know how to talk to people. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to meet new people and to network.

The company itself is not fair to their staff, staff is overworked while managment do nothing.their is a lot of favoritism going on. You are afraid to say anything due to you getting fired. Don't believe anything they say.they will say or do anything to get you in the door then their true colors will show.
DePaul (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – 12 May 2016
DePaul is a terrible place to work. They treat psychiatric patients poorly, leadership (Micromanagers) are NEVER around, Nurses mock patients, both staff and patients get hurt, no care for safety, high turnover, and low morale. DePaul also treats individuals with disabilities terrible.
Dietary/Housekeeping (Current Employee) – Winston-Salem, NC – 23 August 2015
There is very little team work here and are quite often out of compliance without the appropriate amount of people who are supposed to be on each shift. This place just sucks your soul right out of you. I have never in all of my years worked for any place where most of the employees are on nerve or anxiety medication just to be able to come into the building.
Med Aide (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – 27 July 2015
Working at DePaul was always something different. Everyday was a different story from a different resident. Hearing the lives of some of them was a learning experience on its own. Management was well when it came to training and focusing on residents. Co-workers all worked together and became a small family. Hardest part of the job was watching some of the residents relapse and be sent to the hospital.
Wouldn't trust them to care for my dog. Deceptively pleasant appearance
Cook (Former Employee) – Henrietta – 17 November 2014
Appearances are very important to this company because until you live/work their, you may not pick up on the poor care, high turn-over, and horrible overall management from top to bottom. The only positives to working there is learning how to interact with different people of all ethnicity's and the wisdom shared by residents. The food is horrible, aides are constantly understaffed and mandated to work or face losing their job, policies broken, and administration could not care less. It's a "revolving door" company. Almost as soon as the aides are trained, they either leave or are fired and new ones come in. Every two-four weeks there are 5+ new aides to replace the others. I learned to figure out for sure what kind of company you are going to be working for before wasting your time with them. My co-workers could be fun to work with but I found out the hard way that however your supervisor feels about you, is the way they will begin to feel about you. The hardest part is removing all the knives from your back when you leave after a long shift. Also being short staffed all the time and dealing with mandated aides for the same reason because they are often disgruntled and feel it's your obligation to better their night. Another hard part is when you leave, hoping the residents will survive the atrocious care overlooked by administration. The most enjoyable part is getting to know the residents and their families, providing them with quality care at least while you are on shift. They are often very thankful to have someone who cares and will brighten their day around.
One free meal and caring for the residents
Frozen/canned prepared food, poor care, high staff turnover, management, healthcare, broken policies, ...
Energetic and great place to be a higher ed professional
COORDINATOR (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – 24 June 2014
A typical day at work is about engaging with the students that come in the Adult Student Center, connecting them with university resources and building relationships to foster a successful transition back into college. My co-workers are great, it is a very diverse office environment. The hardest part is being at multiple events at once since there is always a lot going on in campus. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to meet all the students and having the opportunity to professionally develop.
Residential counselor 1 (Former Employee) – Rochester NY – 1 June 2014
This company is horrible!!! I worked there for about three years I complained for months about being harassed and bullied and nothing was done... I finally put my complaints in writing via email and I was fired the very next day... Favoritism is highy practiced in this company!!!
Lack of communication, total disregard for policies and procedures
executive director/ administrator (Former Employee) – north carolina – 30 May 2014
As a former Executive Director/Administrator for in NC with this company, I must caution applicants that this company has very little to no communication from the corporate level to the site level. There is total disregard for consistent following of policies and procedures and there is a set of "rules" for one and a totally different set of "rules" for the next. Compensation / benefits are "stated" to be offered and wonderful yet in reality it is all blown smoke.
management (Former Employee) – buffalo, ny – 13 May 2014
DePaul USED to be a great company that appreciated the staff members. The Administration ignores complaints and allows harassment, unfair work practices and bullying. Numerous complaints were made to Human Resources, nothing was done. There is indirect retaliation when you express concerns. Too many friendships between Directors and staff, this causes turmoil and favortism.
