    I have been working at PeopleReady (More than a year)

    Pros

    they give you work in skilled trades. builds more of a resume.

    Cons

    companies don't keep temps, its just quick cash on behalf of youre goofy self.

    Advice to Management

    give people with more skilled trades than others too come and qualify themselves to others with more prior practices than they, I don't even have a manager no more.

    I have been working at PeopleReady full-time

    Pros

    You get paid same day so if you need money fast for important things you can get it.

    Cons

    They send you to job sites where sometimes its the wrong business or the people don't need workers. Everytime you call them they dont answer and it messes up your whole getting a job for the day when people have bills to pay mouths to feed San Bernardino one is really good but Riverside branch is a joke the ladies don't know how to do there jobs!!!

    Advice to Management

    Retrain your employees and have an accurate time tou actually open, answer your phones. Be professional some people actually need this and they are disrespectful when a problem accures and you bring it to there attention.

    I have been working at PeopleReady full-time

    Pros

    Convenience of filing time and receiving pay. No serious commitment to employers or other employees. Local work. Ability to refuse assignments.

    No system of verifying the skill level of employees. Fluctuating wages. Lack of knowledge of the trades they providing to their clients.

    Advice to Management

    Develop tests to verify the experience and skill level of employees. Educate office personnel on the requirements of the various jobs.

    I worked at PeopleReady part-time

    Pros

    People Ready has jobs that pay just above minimum wage with several short term temp assignments, so if you want work and you can live off of the bare minimum - this is the place to go.

    Cons

    The assignments will rarely if ever become permanent and they hire a lot of drug addicts. With the driving jobs for auto auctions, they are good for getting numbers of people. That being said, I witnessed a few people on the job where I'm certain they were smoking crack and/or doing meth. Not cool!

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire addicts! If I can look and see that these people are sick, surely you could too.

    I worked at PeopleReady full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Temps: Pays daily for temps, they'll send you to work ASAP
    Staff: decent PTO (you'll need it, you'll hate your job)

    Cons

    Temps: You can't get OT unless you happen to be on the same assignment all week, pay ranges from min wage to about $9/hour. Tough, hard labor jobs. HIGHLY unlikely you'll actually get hired on somewhere.
    Staff: Schedule was all over the place, management would constantly add on job duties to your already-full plate, when they give you a raise it is just enough to make you angry (2 or 3 %), and there was never enough you could do to please management. ALL. THEY. CARE. ABOUT. IS. SALES. Unless you live in Tacoma, WA or are with the company for 10+ years it is highly unlikely to move up. Shameful place to work for the staff. …

    Advice to Management

    Stop rewarding complacence. You're letting talent walk right out that revolving door.
