Not a bad place
Labour Worker (Former Employee), Dartmouth, NSMarch 27, 2016
Pros: Great Team, Diversity in work
Cons: To many people doing it
I Worked for this place for awhile, they are a contracting company and the Management were never harsh to me or anyone i worked with and gave us amazing opportunity in different fields. only downside was the 5 dollar cut from our pay for finding the work which none of us complained about as they never caused us problems or ever put us at horrible places. Only bad thing was at some points no work would flow in, or to many people would try and hire on causing tons of problems for regular guys.

A fine place to find quick work
Labourer (Current Employee), Hamilton, ONFebruary 13, 2016
Pros: easy to find a job for the day
Cons: the work is hard on your body
I would not advise making a career out of this place. It is really only useful for people that need to work but still looking for a full or part time job elsewhere.

Laborer duties (Former Employee), Kamloops, BCJanuary 25, 2016
Pros: paid same day!
Cons: 4 hours day sometimes?
Typical day at work,is how to ajust to the new duty to learn in 1 day,find on the next days.

I have learned alot of a Laborer positions,to much to name?Enjoy it.

Management is pretty explainable, depends on me to go out,always calls for me to go to work.sometimes others don't turn out,she would call me to take his place.fires that person.have to be dependable for work.I still call in on days, i don't work.

Hardest part,is remembering names?

Enjoyable part,is making new friends,and learning new job placements!

labourer (Current Employee), Bioriginal, RONA(Garden area), TCU PLace,November 24, 2015
Pros: different environments all the time
Cons: some people were rude but then again you deal with that everywhere.
interesting, meet new people, professional, energetic, fast pace environment!
It was really exciting because it was always different places I worked. But I mostly worked at the TCU Place and Bioriginal Place.
At the TCU I did allot of banquets, ceremonies, graduations, and weddings. We fixed the tables for supper at the banquets, then we served food to everybody. Then we cleaned the whole banquet after the meals where done.
At Bioriginal we worked with allot of coconut oil! We packaged it, boxed it, wrapped it, stamped it, and sent it out to different facilities all over the country.

General Labour (Former Employee), Scarborough, ONOctober 20, 2015
The hardest part of working for Labour Ready is the strength in the other employees dispatched to the same job site as you. Certain employees are fortunate to be hired by Labour Ready's clients.

Great entry level sales job
Territory Sales (Former Employee), KitchenerApril 17, 2015
This job was very involved and you never really seem to have enough time in the day as with most sales jobs. The company was well structured for growth but they were unsure of the path they would take. Management is a little confusing when you work with a branch manager (that may or may not try to micro-manage your sales duties) while you answer to only the Canadian sales manager.

Fun workplace with advancement
Warehouse worker (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABMarch 7, 2015
Pros: company discounts
Cons: 15 mins break did not seam enough.
The leather ranch was a fun work place with dealing with customer who wanted leather products. I have learned commiment was inportant and doing your best on every instance. Management was responsible ans very studious. My co-workers were commited and were very ordered with there daily position. The hardest thing with the job was the positions hours 15min break did not seam enough. My most pleasureable experience was serving the customers expecially when they find what they like. Labour Ready was a good place to work.It was great training to get back into the work force. My warehouse position was hard work but show I have the get up and go and can work hard long term.

(TEMP) Waste Management (Former Employee), Oshawa, OntJanuary 19, 2015
Cons: everything
I will never go back, the staff there has no problem telling you off and they seem to enjoy yelling at the people looking for work. This location is in Oshawa. Waste Management is great to work at and it sucks that you have to go through Labour Ready to work there. The staff at labour ready needs customer service training every week. Awful place.
