    I have been working at DePaul Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was placed in a job within 24 hours. All pre employment screening is done on site at the interview including a background and drug screen. (Cannabis friendly) Also they are non profit so I keep my ENTIRE paycheck which is so important because I solely support my family myself. They have some of the best job leads in Portland OR and is trusted by the community. They go above and beyond to get people placed in jobs that can become long term employment as well as working out any issue. Heather in Payroll department is amazing and always responds to every email sent. Attentive hard working staff.

    Cons

    I have had ZERO cons working with DePaul. I needed a job and they found me one that I am more than please with and will lead to long term employment.

    Pros

    -Working with a great group of people that come to work with a purpose and cause.
    -Very good working environment. Empowering to do your job independently.
    -Being community based with a mission that helps people with disabilities.

    Cons

    Can and has been limited on resources at times.
     Being a non-profit does not allow for the newest and latest tools and equipment but the job does get done.

    Advice to Management

    Expand into more cities. since there needs to be a DePaul in every city out there.
    Continue allowing the employees to voice their suggestions so to keep the culture in tact.

    Pros

    They are excellent at misallocating funds: paying bills with monies donated by businesses help to Veterans, decorating their office with public funds meant to retrain those who need help, and using other gov't funds to pay bills.

    Cons

    Let's see: executives yelling at each other, hostile work environment, horrific "Board of Directors," bankruptcy recently, not paying employees on time, not paying vendors on time, The current CEO is arrogant to believe he could conduct business in China....which was a total disaster and resulted in the DePaul "manufacturing" plant being shut down.

    Advice to Management

    Close the place. You have no idea what you're doing.

    I worked at DePaul Industries full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's fun... almost like a circus but the monkets aren't as smart.

    Cons

    Can't pay their employees on-time
    Can't pay their vendors on time
    The accounting department is a JOKE!
    The "CAO" and CEO are even bigger jokes.
    The lights, electricity, and internet get turned off at least once a week.
    They screw over there customers any chance they get.
    The Board is a bunch of idiots.
    They promote the most worthless people in the company.
    They take advantage of the actual good employees.
    The list can go on and on and on.

    Oh and several of my colleagues had money stolen out of their 401K, but HR had no idea what was going on.

    Advice to Management

    Too many to list.

    Pros

    Everyone seems to generally care about the overall mission. They seem to be putting better people in the right management positions.

    Cons

    Wages are well below average for the roles across the board. They are definitely not trying to hire talent, only coaxing them in. This won't keep them for long.

    Pros

    Everyone is always kind and respectful, we treated each other like a human never looking down on one another, we was like a family.

    Cons

    My hours were getting cut, and since I was a temp a not hired on there was not enough work for me to do throughout the months of working for DePaul.

    Advice to Management

    As long as respect was there, everything else fail into place.
