    I worked at Labor Ready

    Pros

    It is quick work to get. The management was friendly in the location I was in. I think your experience depends on the location and the management and the type of work you choose.

    Cons

    You never know who you will work with or if you will have a problem. Thankfully I did not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have nothing to say here. I don't think it matters.

    Going in to be sent out on a job and getting paid at the end of the day.

    The way the personnel treats the guys and myself when coming in looking for work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more patient and considerant to the people who come in and looks for work.

    My experience so far has to be that I expected steady work placement and found out it's not that way.

    I have been working at Labor Ready part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    That you can get paid that day.

    Cons

    infrequent work placement. low pay. favortism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The texting-in system to me dosen't work because the on duty mgr can skip over you without you ever knowing. Why does a company come in with a decent pay rate for a position and labor ready slashes that rate in half or automaticaly places it at minimum wage when we as the work force are doing the work. I understand making a profit but being paid fairly seems to be a problem. Raise your minimum pay rate.

    Unsteady employment. Slave wages! The office culture is about favorites. Not who does a good job and who doesn't.
