Pros

Many job opportunities across the US. Variety of diiferent jobs throughout the company, including jobs that are promoted from within the company.

Cons

Currently unstable work environment. Company is "top heavy" with management staff. Temporary labor jobs are very susceptable to local economy, causing job loss through branch closures to be very common in the cuurent job market in mosr areas of the country.

Advice to Management

Downsize upper management, upsize branch and field operations staff. Many branches are undetr staffed, creating a situation where we don't have the resources to get the work, but we need the work to keep the workers. It seems a mystery to many field staff just what some upper management people actually do. Don't cut back on the essentials in order to keep the expendables.

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

    Pros

    The Pay Is great and flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Lack of structure. Branches are always short staff so it effects your customers. Branches are not a loud to have extra help to make it easier. So everyone is stressed and constantly scrambling trying to fill orders. No support from upper management. They expect you to just figure out. When sales are down everyone cares. When sales are up no one cares and will not offer support,

    Advice to Management

    It takes money to make money. Stop being cheap on head count. If a Branch is doing 100k a week get them extra help. Support your branches and staff. You have 3 people doing work that requires 5 people. Your burning out your staff out.
