DSP (Direct Support Professional) (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – July 17, 2019
Do not waste your time applying here, they call you for a interview and you have to drive through that horrible traffic FAR north and complete a assessment just for them not to call you back. They treat their employees very poorly. Just Apply somewhere else, it’s not worth it. Unprofessional and a complete waste of time!!!!!

Misericordia is a humbling experience. Everyone works together to achieve one goal and that is to better assist the residents on and off campus. Misericordia has a wide range of staff working in its establishment.
Direct Service Professional (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – July 9, 2018
You build a relationship that will never be lost working with the residents. The amount you get paid for keeping the business running isn't enough. The residents receive exemplary care but yet employees low on the poll are treated poorly.

CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 11, 2018
It was a great work place. I enjoyed working with all the staff. Also felt comfortable and a home there. Had an emergency that required me to take a leave of absence and that led me to be laid off after my leave was over due.
Case Manager (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 8, 2018
Friendly clean environment, residents are very lovable, and it is easy to become attached to them. Bonuses are given every year, along with staff appreciation dinner, and work schedule is flexible. Tuition reimbursement is also offered.
Direct Support Professional (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – December 17, 2017
This position takes special people with big hearts. It may be challenging yet very rewarding. Residents are genuinely grateful for the work you do. This position is micromanaged and makes me feel very uncomfortable and incompetent knowing I am doing a great job.
Habilitation Aide/ Home Manager. (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – December 4, 2017
Wonderful opportunity to learn new skills in order to enhance the quality of life of each resident , high paced, stress but it was all under control and never felt like work, was like being among family. Everyone worked together to get things done and keep residents safe. Truly amazing place to work and never regret a moment.
Direct Service Professional (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – October 16, 2017
I would not recommend working as a DSP unless you truly enjoy working directly with adults with disabilities. Very stressful job, difficult to separate stress at work from stress at home, not many chances to advance within the organization.
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – October 14, 2017
This job is great if you enjoy working with persons with disabilities. They take great care of their patients and although similar to a nursing home it is void of all the cons of a nursing home. No smell reaidents are bathed twice daily and 4-5 patients per CNA.
