What kinds of placements does DePaul make?
We have clients in both commercial business and government. We primarily place individuals in light industrial and clerical positions, as well as some technical and skilled trade placements. The slideshow below shows some of our most common jobs, and you can also see our current job openings.

How long before I actually get a job?
Once the drug screen and criminal background check results are complete and satisfactory, you may be considered for an assignment. After that, it will depend on the assignments we obtain and your skill set to make a match.

How long do jobs last?
The length of assignments varies depending on the client and position. We make placements for short- and long-term temporary jobs, as well as temp-to-hire and, less frequently, permanent jobs. Talk to your Employment Specialist about your availability and career goals.

If it is a temporary job, can I get into another job relatively soon?
We are consistently busy and try to keep our associates working. It is important to remember to call your Employment Specialist as soon as you know your assignment will be ending so we can keep our eyes open for other assignments.

Does DePaul have part-time positions?
The definition of part-time varies from person to person. DePaul Staffing gets very few long-term, part-time assignments in. Some short-term assignments may be 8 hours in a day, but not necessarily 40 hours in a week.

Do you charge money to find me a job?
No, our services are absolutely free for job seekers.

What kind of testing do I need to go through for your clerical positions?
All clerical candidates are tested for typing speed. For data entry and administrative positions, we may also test skills like ten key, alpha/numeric, numeric data entry, and/or Microsoft Word and Excel.

Can I sign up with other agencies?
Absolutely. While we would like to be the ones to find an employment opportunity for you, it is best to keep your search options open.

How can I get hired on at my assignment?
If it is a temp-to-hire assignment, you will be given that information when the position is presented to you. If a client is interested in hiring an associate, they will notify DePaul Staffing and we will contact you to make sure this is something you are interested in as well.

How often should I call to be active and looking for work?
You must call in your availability to the front desk at least twice a week anytime Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Who is responsible for getting me assignments?
Our recruiters, who we call Employment Specialists, make the matches for open assignments with our associates.

Why haven’t I been called back?
Employment Specialists make the best match possible for open assignments. If an associate who is calling in their availability is not being called out on assignment, it is because we have not yet found an appropriate match.

How do I know if I have any personal time off (PTO)?
Your PTO balance appears on your paycheck stub. You can also check your balance online through ADP Workforce Now.

What is the work week?
Monday thru Sunday for Staffing, and Friday through Thursday for Security.

When do I get paid? How often?
Payday is every Friday. Timesheets are due Monday by 1 p.m. for Staffing, and Friday by noon for Security. Checks are available to be picked up on Fridays between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Checks not picked up by 4 p.m. are sent out in the mail. We encourage you to take advantage of direct deposit or a paycard. With both of these options, pay stubs are mailed out on Thursday and monies are deposited into your account on Friday.

Can someone else pick up my check for me?
Yes, as long as they have a signed note from you and have photo ID. It is also a good idea to contact your Employment Specialist and let them know, as well.
