    Pros

    Pay is daily. This helps if you have an immediate need for cash. May open up opportunities which may not be otherwise available.

    Cons

    Temp work is not guaranteed or stable. Often dispatched to very labor intensive jobs for minimum wage. Sometime you get lucky.

    I have been working at Labor Ready full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Missed seeing couple of friends while at Goodwill. I used to call the place my workout arena. Had customers of different backgrounds that I always look up to see and talk to while stocking shelves or at the door making my day an enjoyous one.

    Cons

    Changing of Managers-Because of the need to reprove yourself time after time again. Meaning restructuring of said duties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I Thought I was doing okay, because I had already gained three steps upwards by previous Mgmt. only to be shut down all the way to like starting all over again!

    I have been working at Labor Ready

    Pros

    Once hired, arrive everyday 10 min. before the office opens as assignments are parceled out first-come first-served. You are paid the day your assignment is completed. When cash is short between permanent positions, this is pretty important.

    Cons

    Be sure to ask for any safety equipment which ought to be offered to you for the assignment you're be sent out on, i.e. back brace (lifting), eye protection, gloves, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Anyone can perform general labor, send out associates based upon the order in which they've arrived for work.
