    I worked at Labor Ready part-time

    Pros

    A way to earn a little more money than prison labor.

    Cons

    No Integrity. Work very hard for mimimum wage and not enough steady work. Cannot make a living working for these cheap skates.

    Advice to Management

    Pay yourselves less money and the good employees more. Stop playing favorites and treating employees like trash below your feet.

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

    Pros

    Can't seem to find any pros from this experience

    Cons

    They never seem to have anything more then 2-3 days of work/wk.if you do get full time it's a minimum wage position.when it comes time to pay you they dont,you have to call them.they tell me that the company never sent over my work tickets for the week.this is am every week thing.like they dont get paud to handle that part of the job or something.put the time in made the money,but the reps here in toledo don't care about getting you taken care of in a timely fashion..both reps at the toledo location guy and female are just rude on a constant basis.I've had nothing but a bad experience through labor ready..I have alot better luck and get treated like a human being just going through a temp service other than them.

    Advice to Management

    Take more pride and initiative in who you hire to help manage.nobody should be experiencing something like this on a constant basis.
