I got to experience and be apart of a team that required me to handle various tasks in order for others to take care of their tasks.
General Clerk (Former Employee) – Bremerton, WA – April 9, 2014
I would assign various tasks to different people on my team while keeping a log of the type of task being done and who was taking care of it. I would pull and return files for the people on my team in order for them to be more efficient in handling their tasks. I made sure no co-worker on my team was being overloaded with work and I would always inform my manager of any problems that were becoming apparent. My co-workers were very diverse and enthusiastic about what they were doing. Each person made it a very enjoyable place to work. I tended to like keeping busy and helpful to anyone there.

Wonderful Not-For-Profit dedicated to helping the disabled mainstream into working society
Human Resources Manager (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – April 10, 2014
I love everything about DePaul Industries. I love its mission to provide grace and dignity to disabled folks by helping them main stream into working society which helps build their self-confidence and self-esteem. Wonderful group of dedicated employees. A little too political for me hince why I ended up leaving however, after the Board replaced the COO the organization has thrived and now I understand it to be totally self reliant on itself financially. They received very little if any State or Federal funding any longer and have expanded a great deal, which is wonderful to see they are able to touch so many more disabled and disadvantaged peoples lives.
Wonderful mission - finding work for the disabled
Most companies signed on with DePaul to offer on the job training, do not end up hiring the disabled employee at the end of the program period.
