    Pros

    I like working for Labor Ready because they have good local jobs that are on the Metro Bus Rout; and you get paid a couple hours after finishing you job.

    Cons

    Sometimes you don't get picked when your name is on the list because it depends on the order.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    - You won't need to go to a gym anymore.
    - Different work everyday, keeps you guessing what you'll do.
    - You'll usually get work consistently, unless you screw up.

    Cons

    You're getting paid minimum wage as an extra pair of hands, while if you work for an actually company you'll make much more. There's no future at labor ready, no chance for a promotion or wage increase. You've got to be desperate and have done some time to work here.

    Advice to Management

    They know the name of the game. They're sending people to work, while they're collecting the same hourly wage. Whatever, it's temp work.
