It was a temp Job with temp hours
temp worker (Former Employee), Columbia, MOJuly 30, 2015
Pros: paid everyday
Cons: not enough hours
I would go to work with almost no idea of what the job was or how long I would be there or how much I made until I got there . I learned how to work in various work environments . The managers were jus people who handed out money at the end of the day no real conversation. my coworkers changed like the jobs did . The hardest part was finding out the job learning it and doing it in the same day. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting paid

Clean

Pros: some jobs provide free lunch

A typical day is being dispatched to various jobs, we get to the site by cell phone GpS. Management seems to be not in touch with workers as far as job fit. Most jobs are hard and none are enjoyable.

There's always work here.
General Laborer (Former Employee), Pasadena, CAJuly 25, 2015
Pros: fast pay.
Cons: minimum wage.
this nature of work is raw man power. One must be healthy and physically fit to meet the daily work. The management is "classic behind the counter" management. In this environment it is wise to consider isolation work as your colleague may not be the best worker thus a bad reputation. Some times the work can be physically challenging so one must make sure to bring a gallon of water eating before hand is a must. The satisfaction comes at the end of the day because this is the only labor job which pays when you end your shift.

I despised working for this temp agency. I would not like to do this again. The worst part was there was no support. The dispatchers were not always the friendliest. Getting paid was not easy.

daily pay is great
Laborer (Current Employee), Salem, ORJuly 23, 2015
Pros: daily pay, work when you want
Cons: no guarantee of daily work
work your hours and get paid immediately after great for unexpected issues in day to day life, only down side is there is no promise of work daily. they dish out jobs as they come. another plus is the freedom to choose when you work and where.

OK to get started with job experience.
General Laborer (Former Employee), Everett, WAJuly 23, 2015
Pros: Gets your foot in the door.
Cons: Don't always get work every day.
I came to Labor Ready with virtually no job experience, and as they sent me and other workers out to different job sites, I learned a lot about how many places and people work to get things done. I didn't always get to work every day, and sometimes I had to work with people I didn't like. But it was thanks to Labor Ready that I was able to get a position at the Everett Value Village and that became my first full-time job. So Labor Ready isn't the best place to work for, but it helps you get your foot in the door.
