A Days Work
Labourer (Current Employee), Vancouver, BCMay 21, 2014
Pros: gauranteed pay at the end of the day
Cons: somedays theres just no work.
A typical day at work is unknown until the minute i start (same idea with co-workers), which i enjoy. i could have a boring slow & easy day or a day where im constantly on my feet, which is what i like. the hardest part is not knowing if you will have a good direct employer. the most enjoyable part is meeting new people and doing new jobs.

work and get paid in 24 hours...
Laborer-Hussmann Canada LTD, CCT (Former Employee), Cambridge, ONJanuary 14, 2013
Pros: get paid next day
Cons: low wages
I have worked at a number of jobs through this agency, most recently as a receiver for a perfume store in Stone Road Mall. In 2012 summer months, I was hired on as an advertiser for the closing of a large department store. Previously to that I managed a warehouse for 3 years. Most of the jobs I do with this company are jobs in which I must work independently – more... of others, although I do work very well with people also. The hardest part of this job was the "on call", where you find out about jobs an hour before they start and still need to run to Labor Ready for the time sheet. The most enjoyable part of the job is where they pay you the next day for your work... – less

Pros: quick cash
Cons: not knowing when the next time you'll have a spot to go to
making it on time to the building is okay. i have learned ppe is impotant o any job. management seems to be fine until a co-worker gets in the way of their porduction. the hardest thing about the job is going to the same place the next day. the good thing is u get to meet new people on a day o day basis

Cheap Temporary Labor
Temporary Laborer (Current Employee), Lewiston, MEJuly 26, 2014
Pros: work is generally "easy" and you get payed same day
Cons: not always consistent work, low pay for work.
You show up at 4:30am and are usually sent out on a job before 7am.
You have no way of knowing where you will work or what you will be doing any given day, or even if you will work.
The management is helpful if you are a hard and honest worker but will come down on you hard if you cause problems for clients.
Most of your co-workers are really interesting – more... people who are just down on their luck; TONS of fun to be around.
Payed same day for work.

Hardest part of the job is that no matter how grueling the work is, you almost NEVER get paid more than $7.50/hr – less

Productive and fun workplace
Field Team Member (Former Employee), Mesa, AZJuly 25, 2014
Pros: fun coworkers to be around...movies in the morning
Cons: no healthcare and no guarantee jobs daily
The day starts by being at the door before 5am when they open. You sign in and then wait for a job to come available. If one does then you go to the job site. They doesn't always happen though. You may learn new skills that will help you later on in a new field of work. The management is quite nice, but they are strict. The hardest part of this particular – more... job is not being qualified for certain jobs that come in the office. The best part is all the different people and jobs you get to know and learn. It was quite a entertaining job. The people were great to work for. – less
