    I have been working at Labor Ready part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You can choose when you don'[t want to work. They provide some basic training. The job experiences can expose you to a variety of industries quickly. Great place to hire temp labor of all types. Most labor agencies don't have physical labor or short term positions like Labor Ready.

    Cons

    Pay is usually low. Because it is temp work, you can't count on working all the time. If you agree to work a longer job, the work is more consistent and easier to come by.

    Advice to Management

    I like the management team in Butler, PA. The 24 hour line seems to be an offshore call center and can be difficult to understand sometimes.
