Pros: no prior experience needed for many positions
Cons: layoffs occur without notice or warning
A typical day at work included working the same positions as the employees of the client's company. For example, the client's employees would operate various machines and the temporary employees were expected to do the same, even though their job was only inspection. The work environment depended on the department a person was assigned to. Some departments were very lax, while others were the opposite. Management was not always seen on the floor, but was readily available if needed. They had a tendency of having only the textbook version of operating machinery instead of hands-on experience. The hardest part of the job was trying to patch up broken machinery enough to continue production. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting paid weekly instead of bi-weekly.
