    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.
