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
Recruiter, Customer Service Specialist, Dispatcher (Former Employee), ALL LOCATIONS – December 4, 2013
Cons: no breaks, no personal time (on call 24/7), low pay, unreasonable expectations
I worked for this company for two years. I sacrificed my personal time, drove 60 miles round trip to help cover personnel shortages, endured physical pain and emotional abuse just to have them let me go when budget cuts came around. They kept a worker in the same position I held who was less productive and had less experience and time in position because – more... of racial reasons.
The management of this company pretend to be your best friend then turn around and abuse you. They also abuse their temporary workers. AVOID LABOR READY!!! – less
General Laborer (Former Employee), Virginia, Tennesee – December 4, 2013
Pros: better reviews and better assignments
Cons: pay should match the assignment
The management team has figure out how to get job assignment for nearly all its associates. But they could have an even better system in play besides the texting. Maybe they could email their associates if their having problems recieving texting information. Never the less, they have implemented a better way to reach their associates when an assignment – more... comes available. – less
I enjoyed working at all of these jobs,it's just been a long time.
