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

    Pros

    * small management team seemed to truly care about their regulars and attempts to accommodate
    * occasionally, the opportunity for longer-term or seasonal employment

    Cons

    * minimum wage
    * hard work, mostly construction/industrial cleanup
    * favoritism in management toward candidates in labor pool
    * show need/determination before you get sent out on jobs (could take 1-2 weeks of showing up there at 4AM)
    * having a vehicle dramatically increases the likelihood of getting a job
    * they are contracted for $15/hr and pay their employees $7.79/hr. could pay employees a bit better.
