Labourer (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 27 September 2017
Getting involved in the task at hand, and the management of the job is great. Work culture is always a learning and exciting experience every day. The most enjoyable part of the job is the fact that the job was well done, feels good at that days ending of a job well done
Anything (Former Employee) – Vernon, BC – 16 August 2017
Not a bad place if you are one of the " favourites" of the lady handing out the work. But if you are just a hard worker who gets there early to support your family, forget it. You can be the first in the door and she will still give to her favourites that stragglers in 2 hours later.

Temporary Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 17 April 2017
check in for jobs and paid daily but if you do not check in daily you will not get work plus you are put on stand-by if not on time which is a good thing it takes all the lazy people out of the hiring process.
General Labourer (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 12 April 2017
Typical day here is showing up at 430am to make sure your name was first on the list to be sent out somewhere for 8 hrs of work. sometimes you'd show up and nothing would be available, or there would be no work that day.
Labourer (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 6 April 2017

Labourer (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 1 April 2017
It was just a temporary job I just had to show up at six in the morning and wait for an opening to work. I learned how to work on a production line and warehouse work packaging different kind of material but it was mostly coconut flax seed. The management was good people didn't need much supervision it was straight forward work. The workplace was mostly on a production line and nothing was really hard about the work. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing how much we had done in only eight hours.
Learning new things, meeting new people, a chance of getting hired if they need more employee's.
Labourer (Current Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 27 January 2017
Been with Labour Ready for some time now. They have always helped me when I was seeking work. Show up on time, don't be late, and stay committed; plus work hard and the staff will make sure you get assignments. They are very fair to everyone as well, and genuinely care about the employees. Safety First! Awesome coworkers and awesome management. Thanks for all the work thus far!! Looking forward to more!
General Labourer (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 27 January 2017
Each job was different and I obtained a lot of different skills at each job site. I met a lot of amazing people and I made a ton of new friends. The hardest part about working at a temp agency is that work is never guaranteed. It became increasingly harder to get work through this temp agency.
Temp Worker (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 27 January 2017
Usually day to day work with the occasional long term position. However work is never guaranteed and some days you walk away with nothing. Job availability when they have it is usually first come first serve. The staff try to do their best, however they get a lot of corporate flak for paying out overtime and there is almost no room for advancement in position nor an increase in pay rate depending on the job contract. References are also very difficult to acquire despite the vastly growing skills and qualifications a labourer acquires over time.
