CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE (Current Employee) – Vienna, VA – September 23, 2015
Contacting each client in the morning making sure that the laborers who were assigned have arrived on time and are completing their tasks. Along with collecting work tickets and paying the workers the same day using Ellis software. Clients or potential clients calling for 20+ amount of workers for a special event, when the pay rate for it extremely low at times is the most frustrating part. Enjoyed building rapport with my laborers that came daily, because some actually thrived getting up and accomplishing the job they had each and every day.
Laborer (Former Employee) – Amarillo, TX – February 7, 2016
a typical day your hours vary . i learned about how to do some more things better. co workers worked together and helped some didnt want to . managemnet sometimes didnt work to well with workers .the hardest part of the job was the cold . the most enjoyable part was meeting new friends
Its a nice job, pay was lousy, but I enjoyed meeting new people from other states. There is always something interesting going on, but for the most part I dio not stray from my assigned work, unless I am given a break.
Meeting People, Flexible hours
Short breaks, On feet for many hours straight, Bad Pay

Temp Customer Service Rep (Former Employee) – Solon, OH – January 29, 2016
The work culture is terrible and it seems that everyone was out for themselves. After working for a short time, it feel like I was apart of a scam job. I was very unhappy with the manager, he didn't seem to care at all about anything.
Various Positions (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 29, 2016
I would attend briefing for assignment, arrive at work location, management and clients at work locations never greeted or expressed positive character toward Labor Ready Staff, attending Labor Ready supervisors lazy and disrespectful, payroll didn't want to pay on time and I never received another work opportunity. The work that was asked of me, is against my culture and I was told there was nothing else for me.
Working outside in the rain while storming, wasn't asked to come inside or given any hospitality.
Trash Collector (Current Employee) – Plymouth Meeting, PA – January 27, 2016
There was route work involved in this job working outside in all weather conditions. We went to different areas of the suburbs to collect trash or recycle depending on what the company wanted to use you for that day. Sometimes you had trucks that did not operate fully and would make your job very strenuous. This was a very physical job it was not a job that everyone is cut out for. Some of the workers were great to work with some were racists. I liked that I could get paid to work out.
This company will be taken over by the union, it was a great way to stay in shape
Trucks not kept up, some staff not positive, and the temporary workers treated badly
Temporary Labor Worker (Former Employee) – Richmond, CA – January 22, 2016
working at labor ready was a great way to start your day. i would start by picking up my time sheet, head to a workplace which was reasonable an fair with co-works who never brought me any problems or troubles. there was never a time a had a hard time at work just hard work. i enjoyed just being able to get out and work.
great place to work with friendly staff that keep you busy.
Putaway (Current Employee) – Reno, NV – January 22, 2016
Come in ask what they have in the upcoming weeks or the day of. They assign you a job. Go over a packet with you on what you would need, rules and safety. I enjoy the people that work with you. I've learned how to work with all kinds of ages and people. Team work has broadened its ways there for me.
Laborer (Current Employee) – Las Cruces, NM – January 21, 2016
This is a place that found me jobs when i needed it the most. If you were dependable, they would find you a job and keep you in mind when putting you somewhere to work. The only bad thing is that if there was no one who needed help that day, you don't work.
If you work hard for them, they work hard for you.
