I wish they would encourage contractors to be more lenient toward their laborers

    I have been working at Labor Ready full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits if you are fulltime.

    Cons

    Horrible hours including weekends and nights. You are always on-call to fill jobs. You feel guilty for only paying temp help $7.25 an hour for extremly hard work! Company does NOT care about their employees, in management you are treated horrible with very high expectations. Work with some homeless temps that are sometimes desparate for work and often on drugs and alcohol. Horrible and unprofessional district management that do not follow the rules they hold you accountable for in northern ATL! Stay away! Work anywhere else besides LR.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accountability needs to start with you! If you are holding your staff to strict rules and guidelines then make sure you can follow them yourself first.
