I have been working at TrueBlue part-time
Stay busy, make money, while looking for work.
Temporary labor jobs can lead to permanent jobs, the downside of course is the pay.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at TrueBlue (Tacoma, WA) in September 2016.
Everyone I met at TrueBlue were courteous. arrived a few minutes before the interview and the senior engineer greeted me rather quickly once I arrived. I was lead to a conference room where I first interviewed with the senior engineer and the team lead engineer. Every so often the senior engineer would bring in another team member to assess my skills. Over all a good experience and nothing out of scope from the job description.
