Labourer (Current Employee), Vancouver, BC – May 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.
A reliable temporary work agency that provides employment in various fields requiring labor .
Laborer (Current Employee), Fort Pierce, FL – May 16, 2014
A typical day starts when you show up and you would be sent out to jobs where employers requires labor or a particular set of skills. Jobs could be from construction to landscaping, from demolitions to janitorial, moving equipment and furniture , driving ,garbage disposal and trade helper .

Laborer-Hussmann Canada LTD, CCT (Former Employee), Cambridge, ON – January 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
For the most part very compassionate people to work for
Laborer (Former Employee), Denver, CO – July 19, 2014
Pros: the people i met, and friends i made
Cons: the long bus rides to get to places to work
As long as you proved yourself to be a dedicated worker it was a great place to find a job. There should be better communication skills with the staff. The office Manager was very temperamental to say the least. The co-workers were well matched for the job required. The hardest part of the job was being there at 5 am and not going out on a job. The – more... most enjoyable part was the different people I worked for were from all different backgrounds which made getting to know them very interesting especially if they spoke a different language and trying to communicate what you needed them to know sometimes was very entertaining – less

The job you are sent out to do some times gets repeated and some times it is different every time you are sent to for a job. One thing you learn is to keep a positive attitude and work hard; then you will most likely have a job that will repeat or have another job the next day.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Arlington, TX – July 15, 2014
I love the type of work that I do. A typical day at work includes putting people to work and making sure they are paid for their work for the day. The management is ok can't complain or say too much. The most enjoyable part of working is knowing that I am helping someone genuinely in need with work. The hardest part of my job is the schedule. Although – more... my normal schedule is 9:30am-6pm I am on-call 24/7. With me having a young child and not having anyone to babysit at night it makes it hard for me when I have to get up late at night when I receive a call. It was little to none in the beginning but has become a regular thing. Also, I don't feel that we, in the position I'm in, are compensated for all of the work that we do. – less
