Labor Ready - Review in Employment Agencies category

I agree I'm from Indianapolis Indiana and working for Labor Ready on the South side and this is a joke to many companie with a plan for corporate greed with a professional purpose to unprofessional and ungodly no fear or care for the passion of the position to be accounted accountable to pay people on time and choosing by favoritism who they want to pay on time my prayers for those seated in high places there will be a wealth transfer to the people and families that truthfully a honest job with good overseers I God we trust we shall receive double for our trouble s with a overflow measure of restitution according to Proverbs 13 vs 22 and lead up it shall be until justification meets and see one way The Kingdom of God the Father is about Business! If you agree say Amen! Amen!

That ridiculous assessment is suppose to tell them if you are going to be prone to fighting on the job, doing drugs or stealing. It is absurd and there is no factual evidence that backs it as being reliable.

I'll give you an example of how ridiculous it is: I had a friend with a lengthy prison record, including assault on a female charges as well as larceny (he served 3 prison terms), who passed their assessment and was put to work.

I had another friend who had NO criminal history whatsoever, had never even been arrested and he failed their test and was refused work. Does that make any sense?

Labor Ready Recruitment Review

Woke up early to work. They had like 30 people and only 7 people got sent to work. And they had a job near Ft Sam Houston, which was 10 miles away. They refused to tell me how much they pay was so no thanks.

Labor Ready - Review in Employment Agencies category from Duboistown, Pennsylvania

I have worked for many branches of labor ready without much of an issue. Recently, I went to check in for work and the branch person told Me that the afternoon staff person had said i made a comment and cursed at her. (Complete and total bs) They said thst i was terminated, without even trying to find out the trurh of the matter or asking to hear My side .. They simply rook her word over Mine. Which is he said she said ***. She is a total waste of air space and a huge lying ***!! They are the most rude inconsiderate and ignorant branch i have ever had the displeasure to even meet!! They treat employees like dirt and act like they are better than anyone else..bunch of snobbish back stabbing double talking lying trash I have ever seen! If one doesnt like you for any reason theu all gsng up and do anything a d everything they can tonscrew you over! My advice, DO NOT WORK FOR PORTLAND MAINE LABOR READY!! They are DISHONEST AND DISRESPECTFUL to their employees. I have also over heard them bad mouth customers after talking with them on the phone. Yhats probably why i am terminated cus they know I could report them for innapropriate work place behavior. Anyway.. There are better companies to work for than this branch! They need to replace these man hating femakes and bring in some honest people who actuallyknow how to treat employees and customers!!!

The people that work in the Labor Ready offices make about $10-11 an hour, so I am not sure what they would have to be snobbish about.. these day labor places create cycles of poverty, so you are indeed better off to find other work.

#1210170

I don't know Why but I just notice that it listed My review as in Pennsylvania. I am actually in Maine. Not sure how to fix that..but either way labor ready is horrible company to work for!!

Unfortunately, now that you have threatened physical violence, I am doubtful Labor Ready will do anything to look into this.

I want everyone to know they did me wrong and its not right. I will report this.

Labor Ready Recruitment Review

I have worked with labor ready on off for more than ten years now and I can say they are at an all time low. I don't get the "good" assignments even though I text in asap. I am sent out with the laziest people that I have to cover for while the staff talks to me like I am trash. It use to be a nice way to add to your income.

Labor Ready - Review in Employment Agencies category from Abilene, Texas

I worked Labor Ready in Abilene Texas since 2013 through 2015 and let's say Rick inside the office is a piece of *** they don't care about their employees at all I worked Buddy's plant plus Ballinger Texas and had to be at Labor Ready 5 o'clock in the morning and of course nobody is there we gotta wait for 13 to 15 minutes sometimes 30 minutes but when we all got in the van one of the dumb piece of *** a****** workers pulled a knife on me and said the van they blame me for it for yelling at them they don't want me on the phone no more and then last year I worked Labor Ready I got fired from Buddy's plant plus Ballinger because I told on one of their employees that he called me a piece of *** mother *** because of his negligence I got fired for it come to find out it is one of the supervisors son-in-law I got fired for it Rick and everybody in labor I said they knew nothing about it. That's complete *** they know everything that goes on with their employees! . And yes they're training video is *** they just throw you right into the mix just because they want you to wear your PPE personal protection equipment they think you are trained now for the job Labor Ready says still work today get paid today that's complete bull *** to you have to wait a week now it's false advertisement!!! So whoever decided to want to work for Labor Ready do not do it go to Kelly temporary services they will have your job quicker and they care about their employers

LR is one of those places I wouldn't work at unless I had real desperation. Working these day labor jobs for minimum wage cash just creates a dependency cycle you can't easily escape from.

You actually stayed 5 years? I was in charge of hiring and firing with our family business and on occasion hired a laborer or two from Labor Ready and it was like playing Russian Roulette, never knowing what I would get as far as dependability, knowledge of construction and/or an Alcoholic/Druggie!!!

You my friend had every chance and opportunity in the world to better yourself and learn any trade while being at Labor Ready, sounds like you Squandered every one of them being there 5-years and probably still there, I am assuming?

The world doesn't owe you jack and you owe it to yourself to get your a_ss out of that place and learn a lucrative trade, asap!!! Take full advantage of every company that hires you plus you can always get around Labor Ready's contractual BS they threaten you with if you accept employment with one of "Their" Clients!

Labor Ready - Customer Care Review from Seattle, Washington

Labor Ready in Ventura is horrible. Xionara, the recruiter, is lazy. The office never returns calls and they are very unprofessional. The branch manager does not taking complaints seriously and hangs up on people who ask questions. Corporate does nothing about complaints.

Labor Ready doesn't pay their office staff very much either. They earn between $10-$12 an hour, which is not much for someone in the staffing business.

If they paid their employees AND their contractors decent wages, they could attract a higher caliber of people. Unfortunately, they either haven't figured that out or just don't care.

Labor ready has no consideration for the employee who shows up for work each and everyday

many times you get booked for work and show up at the Pawtucket office and the staff does not show up on time to open the office and allow workers to be on time for their jobs. The employees give incorrect times to arrive at office, cancel jobs last minute you thought you were going to work. Labor Ready shows complete ignorance towards their employees and it shows all the way to the people they send on jobs. they dont question whether you can perform it or not, just sending a body is good, but not good for the employee who does care about their work ethic. I am shocked Labor Ready is still in business.
