TrueBlue Journeyman Carpenter Review

Plenty of work

TB has kept me busy working as much as I have wanted. In the 2 years I've worked for them, I have worked on 3 jobsites. So as long as you have a good work ethic TB customers will keep you around. But keep in mind this is a staffing agency, so you are temporary labor for the contractors you work for. Only downside to working for TB is no paid vacations. You do get paid sick time.

Great Company to work for

I have worked on and off with True Blue Companies since 2005, and they have always been there for me. In between other contracts, I have come back to them, and they always welcome me back. If they just had better medical insurance, I would probably never leave. But overall, the office personnel really care and try to place you where your skills fit, and are always asking how things are going. Very pro-active company.

Pros

Relevant pay scale for your field, supportive, free safety equipment and tool prizes.

Cons

Weak medical benefits, job consistency.

Management

I am no longer employed at this company but when I was there, I never was acknowledged for all my time and effort I gave them. My branch manager was very selfish and inconsiderate toward her staff. She carried her personal issues on her back to work with her and was very temperamental. When these issues were brought up to the attention of higher management, it was as if the issues were swept under the carpet. The work environment was so hostile and unhealthy, workers and customers would even complain about the branch manager constantly yelling and screaming. Currently thank goodness that branch manager is no longer employed with True Blue but her boss still is. I strongly feel she needs to be reprimanded for not resolving the issue because she would still have two employees that actually worked and made a difference in that particular branch.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Very poor management

Difficult workplace.

Management will micro manage your every minute while telling you that you have the power to make decisions, you do not. Pressured to work past scheduled shifts to process late issues that are commonplace in on-demand labor services and then be required to take a long lunch the next day to avoid earning overtime, and then be reprimanded and questioned as to why you could not get done on time. Management seems to lack insight of actual job duties. Branches lack adequate staff for current work loads. Management supports a culture of disrespect between Branch Managers and branch staff alike creating an extremely negative work environment. Management lacks insight into their contribution to the negative work environment and the amount of lost productivity that occurs on a daily basis as a result. Unfortunate. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the laborers and customers alike.
