    Current Employee - Common Laborer in Lawrence, MA

    Pros

    Flexibility, and getting paid the same day IF someone happens to be in the office after your job assignment is over.

    Cons

    Work is hard to find if you do not have transportation and upper management has an incentive to reduce employee compensation as much as possible through corporate structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the lively hood of average workers when sending them to the most hazardous jobs in the country and fight for better wages for them as oppose to profit margins for the owners considering every dollar earned by Labor Ready is off the backs of human beings.

    Current Employee - Temporary Labourer  in  Rockville, MD
    Current Employee - Temporary Labourer in Rockville, MD

    Pros

    You have a reason to travel around your region to work. You will meet many persons from different walks of life. The pay is good. There are plenty of opportunities for those who need to get started with some verifiable work.

    Cons

    Your physical strength will be tested, if you do not have any specialty skills (office, machine operation, etc). As an employee for this temp agency I have learned the meaning of hard intensive labor. The company will play favoritism for those who have been there the longest. Meaning your first week could be on an off work week. Also much like most other temp agencies, you will be spending at least two hours of your morning sitting in a waiting room awaiting work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Providing some verbal motivation for employees to advance their careers.
