    I worked at Labor Ready

    Pros

    You might get a job after standing outside in the cold for 4 hours, that is if you sign the list first.

    Cons

    They claim to be open at 5:30am, yet force you to stand outside in the cold until 7am. Then after finally getting in, they kick us out after more hours of waiting, with no jobs. We are treated so poorly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire African American people to work at the front desk, then maybe we won't be treated so poorly.
