I found Labour Ready to be extremely beneficial.
Previous Labourer (Former Employee) – Abbotsford, BC – 7 October 2016
I was young, about 18, and I only had a few previous jobs before this agency. I was recently graduated and finding a job in Abbotsford was and still is difficult for my age range. I got to experience building water pumps, cleaning bakeries, shovelling berries, building crane mats for the oil rigs, sorting dirty laundry, and packing water onto Pallets.
The work always varied and while you are paid everyday, you can always ask them to pay you once a week, twice a month, monthly etc. It was also cool when working in a construction environment, and say they normally pay their employees 11.50 if you actually work for them, Labour Ready would pay you 12 dollars per hour. So it was worth it in the end.
I found it helpful and very unique.
I hope I can return to them once I finish my schooling, college is fun right?
There was always work, always willing to work with your disabilties
Some of the places you arrived at were awful, sometimes the job required too much
