I worked at TrueBlue full-time

Pros

competitive pay, mediocre benefits offered. Some talent in management, but real performers not valued highly enough

Cons

dysfunctional, antiquated systems and business processes, over-inflated egos, dying business model, profitable only by acquiring competition, poor work-life balance, lack of support for managers, overwhelmed IT department, resources poorly appropriated, political activities apparent to entire workforce, disconnection from field employees.

    I have been working at TrueBlue full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Encourage thinking outside of the box, flexible work environment, a lot of internal promotion opportunities.

    Cons

    Often make decisions and move to implement without fully understanidng all day-today operations and actions, this leave this end user scrambling to pick up the pieces and make everything come back togetehr to try and ease the burden form the field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to the details provided by the end users before moving forward with major project systems. Listening to the voice of the users up front will eliminate a lot of the issues that pop up after a "go-live" event.

    Started out very well. Learned a lot. After 3 years, culture didn't fit anymore. Didn't like being micro-managed.

    I have been working at TrueBlue

    Pros

    Good money, good schedule. Could take time off for family issues with no hassles.

    Cons

    Micromanagement; Politicking gets you further than merit; company spending hundreds of millions of dollars on failing in-house POS software, developers get six figures a year to milk a worthless product, whilst support is underpaid and overworked to support a failing product.

    Upper management is clueless, or apathetic, as long as they're getting paid...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enroll in a management program to learn how to be effective managers. Get rid of CIO who has no IT background because she came from accounting.
