    Pros

    They have jobs where the employer needs someone to fill a particular position that day. so though it is only a temporary position you can earn money that very day and most times get paid. So you will not be completely broke., that way.

    The job is not permanent nor do you get benefits.

    Help your employees shine on the job, not just find work.

    Pros

    On Thursday, November 9, 2017 some 80 people were laid off from TrueBlue, Inc. dba PeopleReady (formerly LaborReady) including the staffing brands of CLP, Spartan and others. It was a very sad day for those eliminated and for the company as a whole. With unemployment at a national low, no shortage of qualified accounts and the staffing industry recording record growth, it's hard to understand what went wrong. In my opinion, the restructure that took place over the past two years came too top heavy and field directives didn't match up. While corporate personnel wanted to minimize competition among branches, the compensation structure was set up to encourage divisions among branches, markets and co-workers. It was a losing proposition and never found acceptance among the ranks. I hope the company will take some time to absorb the enormity of the losses and reflect on what could have been done differently. BE OPTIMISTIC. BE PASSIONATE. BE ACCOUNTABLE. BE RESPECTFUL. BE TRUE.

    Cons

    Please see comments above for Pros and Cons

    Advice to Management

    I am so sad for everyone. You have a lot of work to do!
