Advice to Senior Management – Need to rethink policies heavily.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – Great industry in this economy. People you help that want to be helped can make you feel useful. Name recognition when talking with people.
Cons – The executive level of company is full of incompetent people that would not be wanted by other companies. They promote people who are poor performers but are great butt kissers. They also do not want to keep employees that just do the job and meet or exceed goals but are not interested in doing the political aspect. They only achieve results they have by volume and by the industry they are in.
Advice to Senior Management – What is point when executives will not evaluate themselves. Pass of blame on others and just out for themselves.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
Pros – None!!!! People to stupid to do d payroll sameday. Especially when there moto is, work today and get paid today. The moto should be work to day and we will pay you when we figure out how to.
Cons – Where do I start?!! We want you to travel to a job that can be located anywhere. We will pay you less than what the job will ever pay because you are worth less than the job. Your safety is only their issue if you are injured and sue them. They are only interested in making themselves look good for the accounts they have. In the best interest for them not the emplyees.
Advice to Senior Management – Higher someone with a high school diploma not a GED!
Pros – Only pro I can think of is not being tied to one job.
Cons – Everything, your not guaranteed employment, they request you come in at 5:00 in the morning to sit and possibly wait an entire day to see if you get a job. I waited 8 to 12 hours some days to get absolutely employment. For 3 months I sat and waited for a position for a job. Only to be employed twice.
Advice to Senior Management – The need a change in structure. To where instead of having a ton of people sitting around in their building waiting on day labor. They should have contact infomation to call people in when needed.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
Pros – If you can't get anything anywhere else, even collecting aluminum cans, go there.
Cons – If you're working here, there is only one step lower and that is prison.
Advice to Senior Management – Nothing to add.
Pros – I cannot say a good thing about the Flint office.
Cons – Wait hours for jobs then hours more for a check.
Advice to Senior Management – Get some different people to run the Flint branch.They do not treat the day laborers like a person,only a paycheck for them.Make you wait for hours EVERY Friday for your tiny check.
Pros – Any job is better than no job at all.
Cons – I don't like the new text messaging system they have established to noify workers
Advice to Senior Management – Don't change the systems in placethat are already working.
Pros – You get paid the same day you work.
Cons – The clients they use STINK! You are less than refuse to them. If you don't believe that go to your local office, sign up, and if you get sent out, watch how the client will put you in the most dangerous job possible.
I have only worked for one client of theirs that showed any humanity and the rest I believe would shoot you as look at you. I have never seen such hate-filled hostility from any job assignment from any staffing agency as I have from the managers of companies that use Labor Ready.
I remember one job I was sent out to with three other people. It was a job where we were to tear out the walls of a house that had burned. The on-site supervisor wouldn't help at all and talked smack to each of us at some point. One of the workers who was in the process of tearing down a ceiling was called an idiot while he was working his butt off. I'm surprised that he didn't snap on the nitwit supervisor right then.
The supervisor wouldn't do one thing to help, but ran his hateful mouth to all of us that day and talked to most of us like we were dogs.
What did Labor Ready do? Nothing! We went back and complained and the idiot at the desk just ignored us and handed us our sheets to sign. She didn't care.
BOTTOM LINE: WORTHLESS DAY LABOR SERVICE, WORTHLESS CLIENTS!
They know that most people who work for Labor Ready are desperate, need cash RIGHT NOW and they will run over you because of it. BEWARE OF THIS COMPANY!
Advice to Senior Management – Have a sliding scale for wages. Harder, more dangerous work, pay higher wages. Nothing at the Olathe KS office ever paid more than minimum wage.
