manual laborer (Former Employee), Santa Ana, CADecember 22, 2014
Pros: over time
Cons: dangerous work conditions
Would get jobs to work from the agency to perform manual labor after getting a call to have a work slip and go out to the job. I would enjoy the end of a project after several days of working and complete my job that I was paid to do and worked long hours on.

Temp Worker (Current Employee), Savannah, GADecember 16, 2014
Pros: carpools
Cons: lottery
working here is like armageddon on earth! it's the last pole cast in a drouted pond! when you get work it's a blessing. when you don't it's a waste. seeing everyone around you just encourages survival. you go out to a job site and work for however long the ticket is. then you return to HQ and hopefully get paid. .... you can get anything in there job – more... wise. as long as they want to give it to you, is all. or you qualify. – less

Loader/helper (Former Employee), Detroit, MIDecember 10, 2014
Pros: when you have a need for money it is there
Cons: just about any negative
Employee and management disconnect with few rewards other than receiving sub-standard pay. No loyalty for employees who are good hard working assets. Often offering nepotism and favoritism instead of ethic.

Temporary work has its benefits
Temporary Contract Labor (Former Employee), Portland, ORDecember 10, 2014
Pros: flexible, variety, opportunity
Cons: minimum wage pay, unpredictable schedule, communication gaps
Obviously, there are always limitations to temporary labor work. There are also benefits. Having a challenging schedule, especially with a visitation schedule every other week, means keeping a job with regular hours is even more challenging. Having the option to turn down a job if there is a time conflict can be helpful. The daily pay schedule is also – more... helpful if you need ready cash to put gas in the car or pay an unexpected bill. Some of the assignments are short, yet you can count on at least 4 hours pay. Labor Ready is one way to meet those challenges.

The drawbacks include limited job security and minimum wage pay for most of the assignments, as well as not knowing for sure when you will get the next assignment. There is a need for workers who can pass UA tests and 2 levels of law enforcement background checks. Given that not everyone can meet those standards, you might think that job would pay more since it is likely that the company is paid more for a higher level worker. This is often not the case. That said, the only other drawback seems to be the way jobs are assigned. Using a text to work system, you are notified of jobs and are supposed to respond by text to be considered. This would be a very efficient system if they always used it, but many times jobs have been filled by those physically at one of the branch offices. That in itself is not an issue, except that if you only text you may miss opportunities. It is better to go into a branch office to get to know the staff there and let them get to know you. This helps them, and you, get better assignment matches. – less
