Temp Service
Laborer (Former Employee), Killeen, TXJuly 27, 2014
Pros: learned skills
Cons: payment amount, work time, etc
There never was a typical day at this place. I learned alot of different stuff from being around so many different kinds of workers. I really wasnt around anyone long enough to get to learn anything about the management. The hardest part of the job was never knowing how much you where going to get paid. The most enjoyable part of the job was all the – more... different people I got to learn things from. – less

Cheap Temporary Labor
Temporary Laborer (Current Employee), Lewiston, MEJuly 26, 2014
Pros: work is generally "easy" and you get payed same day
Cons: not always consistent work, low pay for work.
You show up at 4:30am and are usually sent out on a job before 7am.
You have no way of knowing where you will work or what you will be doing any given day, or even if you will work.
The management is helpful if you are a hard and honest worker but will come down on you hard if you cause problems for clients.
Most of your co-workers are really interesting – more... people who are just down on their luck; TONS of fun to be around.
Payed same day for work.

Hardest part of the job is that no matter how grueling the work is, you almost NEVER get paid more than $7.50/hr – less

Productive and fun workplace
Field Team Member (Former Employee), Mesa, AZJuly 25, 2014
Pros: fun coworkers to be around...movies in the morning
Cons: no healthcare and no guarantee jobs daily
The day starts by being at the door before 5am when they open. You sign in and then wait for a job to come available. If one does then you go to the job site. They doesn't always happen though. You may learn new skills that will help you later on in a new field of work. The management is quite nice, but they are strict. The hardest part of this particular – more... job is not being qualified for certain jobs that come in the office. The best part is all the different people and jobs you get to know and learn. It was quite a entertaining job. The people were great to work for. – less

For the most part very compassionate people to work for
Laborer (Former Employee), Denver, COJuly 19, 2014
Pros: the people i met, and friends i made
Cons: the long bus rides to get to places to work
As long as you proved yourself to be a dedicated worker it was a great place to find a job. There should be better communication skills with the staff. The office Manager was very temperamental to say the least. The co-workers were well matched for the job required. The hardest part of the job was being there at 5 am and not going out on a job. The – more... most enjoyable part was the different people I worked for were from all different backgrounds which made getting to know them very interesting especially if they spoke a different language and trying to communicate what you needed them to know sometimes was very entertaining – less

General labor, a different challenge everyday
General Labor Worker (Current Employee), Woodinville, WAJuly 16, 2014
The job you are sent out to do some times gets repeated and some times it is different every time you are sent to for a job. One thing you learn is to keep a positive attitude and work hard; then you will most likely have a job that will repeat or have another job the next day.

Love the work
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Arlington, TXJuly 15, 2014
I love the type of work that I do. A typical day at work includes putting people to work and making sure they are paid for their work for the day. The management is ok can't complain or say too much. The most enjoyable part of working is knowing that I am helping someone genuinely in need with work. The hardest part of my job is the schedule. Although – more... my normal schedule is 9:30am-6pm I am on-call 24/7. With me having a young child and not having anyone to babysit at night it makes it hard for me when I have to get up late at night when I receive a call. It was little to none in the beginning but has become a regular thing. Also, I don't feel that we, in the position I'm in, are compensated for all of the work that we do. – less
