    I have been working at TrueBlue full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company has a well defined vision, values, and purpose. Live them while working and your golden. CSP is offered here and we live by it. We are our customers best customer because we understand them. Very market / area specific and driven. Training is on the individual. This company puts it all on a silver plate and serves it to you. From that point everyone has an opportunity to achieve success and earn more money. Individuals need to understand that nothing is guaranteed or given based on the past- you need to be in the present and constantly growing and looking towards the future here-
    The company has recently aligned, and is recognized under specific brands now. People Ready (instead of CLP Labor Ready or Spartan Staffing). The softer name accompanied by our ability to work together and be an all inclusive supplier of work force makes us stronger and more competitive in the ever changing labor market.

    Cons

    We supply work force solutions to every company out there- which can be a drain related to cross selling and fulfillment of requests and orders. The company does not have a selling problem, they have a fulfillment problem. Great people need only apply and training will be given- the rest is up to you- earn it, make things happen, be you but be responsive and get things done.... or you should work somewhere else.
    another con.... weak people who cannot sell, be present, or make change for the betterment of the company and clients we service keep their jobs way ... way... to long..... I understand growing a market, but results at a company like this is made in minutes and days.. not weeks and months or years-
    do not apply unless you are results driven and can change your path on the fly based on current corporate business focus.

    Advice to Management

    Let the growers grow and be present- come to an individual branch and see what a day is like for us. Many upper management has never seen daily operations or been at an office to open at 5:30 am, There are a lot of chairs blocking the path of the people trying to climb a ladder here- Advance from within and create your successor with better personal leadership

    Pros

    Growth, keeps you busy and occupied

    Cons

    Competitive, not always fully staffed and you're doing the work for 2 or 3 people. Highly stressful and demanding. Hence on-demand labor force.

    Advice to Management

    Staff properly not only based on skill but personality too. Some staff doesn't work well with management and causes so many issues and conflicts among both internal and temps.
