easy, no trick questions. I had to ask if they drug tested. It appears to not matter to them. Two in person interviews. One with branch manager and one with district manager.

I was told that I would be canvassing for new business and receive commissions. That never happened. I asked a coworker about pay increases after the probationary period, she just laughed!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Labor Ready in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process took a few weeks, but I personally thought that was a good thing, because they took the time to get to know me and to make sure I was a good fit for the company and that the company was a good fit for me. I got to do an observation during the Branch busy time (morning dispatch) and that was a great experience. I interviewed with the Branch Manager first, then the Corporate HR representative, then met with the Disrict Manager on 2 different occassions. They really took the time to make sure I was the right person for the job

    I was able to negotiate my wage at a very fair price. Although this is not always the case, depends on how much experience you have and the first impressions you make.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Labor Ready in May 2008.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, was called in to the branch by the manager and interview. Then got a call from corporate to have a phone interview asking the same questions. Easy interview that focused more on why I needed a job than why I was qualified for the position.

    Application Details

    The process took 3 days - interviewed at Labor Ready in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    First, you'll meet with the branch manager and probably one or more CSR's in the office. The company provides a list of acceptable questions and gives each manager some flexibility in the questions, but they have to ask the same questions to each candidate to avoid any chance of bias or discrimination. It's all the cliche questions like Describe a time you faced adversity? and How often have you been late to work in the past two years? If you pass that interview you'll have a meeting with the district manager, and if you pass the DM then you're in.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time you had to face adversity in the workplace or at school?   Answer Question
    • Describe your ability to multi-task and work in a stressful environment. Give examples.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Little negotiation is possible. They usually list an hourly range in the job posting, but you'll most likely start at the bottom of that range. The company keeps the pay range pretty consistent across the region, so a good wage in one location may not be as good in a more expensive location with a higher cost of living.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Labor Ready in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    After applying online through Career Builder, the corporate office contacts you for phone interview. About a week later the hiring manager will call to set up an interview. Nothing is filled out at the time of the interview. If they are interested in hiring you, they will call you back to come in the office 2-3 days later. Once you go into the office, you will fill out background check paperwork. Once they receive the results, you will be offered the position. Pretty fast process once the phone interview takes place. No drug screening.
