    I have been working at TrueBlue full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great flexibility in the position, everyone I work with and around the office has been very friendly an pleasant. The company is rather big which means a lot of opportunities. They are big on promoting from within when they have a good qualified individual.

    Cons

    The training received here was rather minimal, it takes a very adaptable go with the flow individual. Have the right mind set, and be pro-active about seeking answers to your questions and figuring our protocol. Luckily I had wonderful resources from the co-workers, and my director around me who were able to answer all my questions. Also, the turn around time in the hiring/ interviewing process is rather slow!

    Advice to Management

    Higher up managers need to investigate with the branch/field managers the core of the issues dur to employee turn over.

    I worked at TrueBlue full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most employees were very friendly. They have a restaurant on site You don't have to pay for parking.

    Cons

    Management is not employee oriented. They only look at the bottom dollar and not what they can do to improve employee relations and salaries. They are low on the scale in the industry for salaries. Corporate office is very unsafe. Elevators are constantly having issues. IE dropping several floors, not stopping on the floor you pushed the button for, etc. Often fire alarms are triggered by restaurant fires or smoke.

    Advice to Management

    Review office employees pay scale and pay what they should for the multiple hats you require your employees to wear.

    I have been working at TrueBlue full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Engaged leadership Lots of smart, committed people at all levels Recognized as an industry leader Growth by acquisition Large company with entrepreneurial spirit Inspiring vision for the future

    Cons

    Still a "good ol boys" environment in some areas Customer service reps need more training and pay Multiple systems make it hard to service customers Some old school field managers are not on board with new vision and are hurting progress

    Advice to Management

    Hold field leaders accountable for executing on our vision and values and not just talking about it.

    Pros

    Technology is frequently updated and reliable.

    Cons

    Ridiculously low pay for the Branch Manager position. Constant change of direction and terrible communication from Corporate. Constantly expecting more but not willing to pay for it. Brand reputation is so bad it's difficult to sell. You can dress it up but it's never going to be anything but Labor Ready. Do not disclose the amount of travel required for Branch Managers, many out of state trips "required".

    Advice to Management

    Wouldn't matter sadly.

    I worked at TrueBlue full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Ok benefits, good size IT hardware infrastructure.

    Cons

    The IT department is all about meetings, and end up doing nothing in the end. They don't trust their own employees, and seniority means nothing here. They don't even care when their long tenured great employees quit. Management thinks there is a line of people out the door just waiting to work there.

    Advice to Management

    Leave, go away starting with the VP of IT. This person is completely worthless to the company, and that uselessness works it's way down to the directors and managers below.
