    Pros

    A good company to start a career. Don’t require too much experience

    Cons

    Not competitive wages. Company is too spread out and offices are ran individually, lack of consistency. Management expects miracles to happen to get people to stay at jobs

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

    Pros

    This is a well thought out plan to get paid, the same day that you work. It was the only pro of the job platform.

    Cons

    Backbreaking, hard labor. Pyramid scheme.

    Advice to Management

    I have none for the Rochester, NY branch. I loved all that worked there, the advice to the higher ups are to find jobs for people with an education, or who show loyalty to the company, and place them in management positions.

    I have been working at TrueBlue part-time

    Pros

    Can get started right away. Great a one job or when relocating. Can be part time or full time. They have pay cards which work e era here. Nice company. Not bad hourly wage.

    Cons

    Sometimes orders can get confusing. They are very understanding. Really, no cons. They give you what you ask for and work with you. I am still on call with text message.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your temporary people as well as possible. Thank you too.
