Very Hard Work Minimal Pay
Laborer (Former Employee), Schaumburg, ILFebruary 25, 2015
Pros: lots of work experience, different jobs each day.
Cons: no insurance, and the pat is not worth the work.
I would go into the office at 5:30 am and wait to called for a job. I was the one who usually got the job because I was such a hard worker and very eager. I would learn different thing throughout the day depending on which job I was sent to. My co-workers were very friendly and kind. The hardest part of the job was the strenuous task at hand. The most enjoyable part was gaining the experience in all the different areas of work.

It was hard and tiring place to work.
Laborer (Former Employee), Newark, NJFebruary 24, 2015
It was hard to understand what I was supposed to be doing. The hours was long and tiring and you never knew if you was going to work a full 40 hours a week or if you was going to be offered over time. it seemed like the company was unorganized and took on to much work in a short amount of time.

Very Helful
Laborer (Former Employee), Kissimmi, FloridaFebruary 24, 2015
They were great employers, they help a lot of people get jobs. Its hard work but well worth it. When you get there you wait to be called for an open job then you are placed on that job. If they like your work they keep you.

productive workplace
warehouse (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCFebruary 20, 2015
Usually im early too work so I don't get caught up on being tired late and burnt out. Usually at work its time too work learn and show up. Management is one of the worker positions that I am interested in. When I am at work playing a team plan is one my working strategies. I keep my ears open too the workers and and managers around me make sure im working as a team and making sure I am envolved.my hardest part of the job is working with a mass of people with no help. or running out of products when its time too perform. My satisfaction comes from supplying customers with there orders, keeping them coming back and doing the job in the best way that I can.

Very respectful work environment, comfortable with co-workers
General Laborer (Former Employee), Leominster maFebruary 19, 2015
Pros: free coffee
Cons: short breaks
I monitored incoming traffic and cleaned up after customers on a daily basis. I learned to stay alert and on task while working during my hours. I was able to keep myself mentally stimulated during the workday and able to perform my tasks at my best ability. My co-workers were very civil and respectful to me and made it a comfortable work space. Cleaning up after the customers was the most tedious part of the job however i was able to stay on task until it was completed properly. I enjoyed being kept busy throughout the day and was never bored, I always had something to do.

Labor Ready has been a great company to work for but only focuses on the labor aspect of the job field i'm looking for advancement and perm position.
Laborer (Temp) (Current Employee), Pearl, MSFebruary 17, 2015
Pros: frequency of labor and equipment used for job readyness
Cons: on time payments/ wages /
Typical day working with labor ready is basically the same thing everyday. I learned a lot but there is no advancement to the next level on the jobs that you are assigned. Certification needed to advance to better wages and the since of caring about the employee and their families hard work is not rewarded. Long hours and stability on the job and the company push for permanent employment is practically non-existed on the company side of the house. and the wages made by the employee should be more than minimum wage. Also the use of personnel with criminal and drug background loses the employee respectability on the job sites. But as far as jobs that available on the daily bases is a plus. The staff of labor ready needs improvement as far as on time payments and informing the employee of job duties when sent out on a ticket, employee needs more information. I like their new text a job info that used by the company is a plus. Wages are too low with labor ready for certain tickets your sent out on. looking for office work and more skilled labor from a company of this magnitude.

To help supplement or augment one's salary.
Laborer (Current Employee), Bremerton, WAFebruary 17, 2015
Pros: daily paycheck
Cons: not permanent work.
A good way to keep an income coming in or to supplement to your income. It is sometime can be very hard work but it is work and then at the end of the day, I got paid. If the employer likes you alot, it can turn into something permanent. The staff at Labor Ready are great and if you are a hard worker, they will send you out on more projects but if your there to collect a paycheck, don't bother.
