    I worked at TrueBlue full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent company with a positive, professional, learning environment.

    Cons

    It is sometimes hard to coordinate personality differences.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved @ the branches.

    Pros

    Used to be a good culture where you felt like the company lived their values and was making a difference

    Cons

    Management expects you to work unlimited hours and be connected constantly. Changes in leadership have resulted in poor culture, all about earnings, not about people.

    I have been working at TrueBlue full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay, and bonus structure.

    Cons

    Expect everything and not willing to bend on certain things. Company no longer lives by its own values and if you question integrity of your upline manager, nothing come of it but yet “Challenge the Process”

    Advice to Management

    Really look at whose running things in certain markets and think about why We have so much turnover as managers

    I worked at TrueBlue full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Simply, it's a resume builder for someone who would like to have the word "Recruiter" or some form of it on their resume - not for the actual experience, but for the word to be legally allowable on one's resume

    Cons

    Some of the worst, most unprofessional, clueless, and if I'm being blunt, dumbest group of leaders ever put in such positions. No other company would put these individuals in similar positions within their organizations, which probably explains why they are lifers with TrueBlue - they couldn't get a job anywhere else. I can count on my hand what true leaders are within TrueBlue that actually are in leadership roles. Constantly pushing Flavor of the Week type initiatives that never go anywhere and are just a way of patting each other on the back for a job well done in the moment. Culture is fear-based and includes a constant stream of emotionally abusive and manipulation. Primary motivations focus on short-term results instead of quality, long-term success. All about warm bodies instead of skilled professionals in respective trades.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house. Some regions need all leaders to be Fired effectively immediately. Find true leaders from the Top-Down. Commit to Quality over Quantity. Commit to Service over Fills. Walk the Talk. Promote based on merit and experience, and who can actually define what leadership is and exudes that daily. Mentor and help people Grow. Woo your internal employees to actually fall in love with you. Look to the future, because what you're putting out to work now won't be around for much longer.

    I worked at TrueBlue full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good Benefits, PTO and discounts.

    Cons

    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. Nepotism is rampant, and you are completely replaceable to the company. They don't pay nearly enough for the insatiable expectations placed upon staff.

    Advice to Management

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