Quiet Desk Job
Clerical Clerk (Former Employee), Murfreesboro, TNMarch 28, 2015

It's a very great temporary job agency.
General Laborer (Current Employee), Pearl, MSMarch 27, 2015
Pros: You get paid daily after each day that you work.
Cons: The pay never increases.
I really like how you can work when it's convenient for you. The pay isn't well but it's very convenient for my life situation until I find something more stable and permanent.

For those needing money the same day you can't beat Labor Ready
Temporary worker (Former Employee), Boise, IdahoMarch 26, 2015
Pros: paid same day, good co-workers maagement
Cons: most jobs are 7.25/hr
A typical day is about 6-8 hrs of general labor. I learned to work as a team. Management are great at getting you work if you text in early in the morning. You will work with a variety of co-workers with their own strengths and weaknesses; for the most part they are good workers. The most enjoyable part of the job is you choose when you want to work for the most part unless they need a job filled asap.

Working on different jobs.
Laborer (Former Employee), 1235 Cherry Rd. Rock Hill S.C.March 20, 2015
Pros: working with different people.
Cons: going to different jobs
Depends on what job I was sent on that day from construction or warehouse to stocking shelves made my day go by fast or slow. Going to several different jobs in a week time was hard to get to know people on that job. Getting some experience on different job site made it good practice to work with different people.

Joke
Temporary Employee (Former Employee), Taunton, MAMarch 20, 2015
Pros: you find day work
Cons: everything else
They say they're helping you find a job but they don't let you get hired and are conniving and sneaky. There were also jobs that they sent me on where the company made more than I did per hour and I was worked way above and beyond the whopping $8/hr they gave you for ANY/EVERY job you did, whether you were sitting down watching something or digging trenches for 18hrs a day. Its pathetic that they pretend they care about you too, sending me to jobs without the right safety equipment, or too much when I didn't need any of it.

Good company to work for
TEMPORARY LABOR (Current Employee), Bangor, MEMarch 18, 2015
Pros: get to satisfy some customers to serve
Cons: getting yeld at for not makeing the right orders.
I have liked working for Burger King in Auburn, ME. The store manager and the store owner are great to work with. But the one in Bangor, ME near the Bangor Mall I didn't like working their. Because you had a crew member that was acting like a manager and that worker was not. The store owner was not that very friendly to his workers their. But all in all I'ved enjoyed working at Burger King.

It's good to have Labor Ready there when dealing with unemployment
Temporary Laborer (Current Employee), Charlotte, NCMarch 13, 2015
Pros: able to make money that day
Cons: rate of pay
Your day can typically start early

I've learned to always work safe

Management is pretty fair

Co-workers are sometimes cool to deal

The hardest part of the job is making 7.25 an hour

The most enjoyable part of the job is know you have successfully accomplished your task for that day

Office management leaves something to be desired.
Certified Forklift Operator (Current Employee), Ocala, FLMarch 12, 2015
A typical day starts at 5 am at the office and there is no stable or secure way to know if you are scheduled to work. Co-workers are easy to deal with and cooperative as a team, the hardest part of the job is not knowing or having job security. The best part is getting paid and being productive.
