    Decent employer depending on your location, just don't expect to advance within the company

    I have been working at Labor Ready

    Pros

    Good, competent coworkers since most positions are not entry-level
    Job stability in a growing industry
    When the company allows autonomy at the branch level, the job is very enjoyable and satisfying
    Managers are allowed freedom with office expenses and reimbursed quickly

    Cons

    Hourly employees have the responsibilities of management, without the pay of management
    Lots of poorly-thought-out directives from senior management that will make your job harder
    Very little chance of promotion unless A) you're branch manager is leaving, or B) you're willing to relocate
    Company promotes best sales performers to management and then saddles them with non-sales responsibilities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your boardroom ideas rarely translate well to the branch level; maybe test new policies at the few locations that need it before blanketing the entire region/district
    Remember that lots of factors create a successful branch, not simply the sales numbers
