    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Labor Ready (Woodinville, WA).

    It was quick and simple. Basically it is just a back ground check to make sure you are allowed to work in the states and you are not a felon. They are looking for individuals that can use their bodies to do manual labor.

    Laborer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Labor Ready (Fife, WA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    1 day informal interview. Took a psychological assessment and drug test. Interview went well and I was hired on pretty much the same day. Very laid back. A friend of mine didn't get the job because she said the wrong things on the assessment, so take care to answer it like you're a goody two shoes.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Woodinville, WA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Labor Ready (Woodinville, WA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online through their website using a link from my local unemployment offices job list. Two days later I got an email saying they liked my resume and wanted to set up a phone interview. Got the first one set up at 11 am for two days later. I sat and waited and got no phone call, 12:45 I called the number that was in the email and left a message. Got an email later that day with an apology and to reschedule the interview for the following day at 10:30 am. At 11:12 I finally got the call and they apologized, stating that the alert didn't pop up to call me. It didn't sound like they knew what they were doing. I asked some questions about what the job schedule was like and after the question was answered, I was placed on hold.

    When told about the job duties, I was told I would be on call when not working my shift. The part about being on call had not been on the listing when I applied or I wouldn't have applied. It also didn't make sense to have a CSR on call and when asked about it, I was given different answers that all sounded like they don't want to take the time to properly staff the company.

    When I was asked if I understood what the job duties were, I told them that I wasn't. I was then told to read the job listing and research the company and if I was still wanting the job to email them and reschedule another interview.

    Reasons for Declining

    I will not be working for them and have sent an email stating that it was because of poor interviewing and not properly listing job duties in the job listing I applied for.

    There's not really a formal interview, since they hire most anyone who wants to work. You've got to pass a simple safety test that doesn't require any studying. It's mostly common sense questions about not putting yourself or anyone else in danger.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Labor Ready (Orlando, FL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Straightforward. I met with several of the staff as well as senior level management. It was a relatively painless process as far as interviews go. It was a serious but cordial atmosphere. There is a good culture and they are helpful. They have experience hiring new people since it is a staffing company, so they know what they are doing. I would recommend this job to anyone interested.
