Madison Wi. People ready branch is horrible. They do not have good people skills, office staff gives false information to associates, they will refuse to answer the phone for associates. They advertise for daily pay exceptions of weekends and holidays, however that is not the case. I've encountered numerous other associates that the treatment they receive from and Individual at that location is horrendous. Speaking with branch manager doesn't get you very far either. They are not understanding of people with sick children. At this branch specifically there is NO TEAM. It's office against associates. Without the associates there isn't an office. Remember that.
I would not recommend anyone to work with PeopleReady. The level of professionalism is little to none. I have never felt so low when speaking with the staff here. In particular, two ladies by the name of Gwen and Ty. Ty refused to provide her name. Staying, "It's just Ty!" Their tone when speaking with you at anytime is demeaning and I believe Gwen is the actual office manager and Ty is personnel. They come off with no care in the world for any of the laborers. Without the laborers, PeopleReady will not thrive. I understand that the staff deals with many facets of personalities, but you should maintain a level of professionalism knowing that most people who comes to PeopleReady is in need greatly. Show some sort of empathy.
Timely compensation is another issue. I have worked 2 different assignments and have yet to get compensated and it has been beyond 48 hours as told by staff, in particular again, Gwen as to when I should expect compensation. I do not know what is her issue, but she needs training in customer relations. I am planning to call Corporate because laborers expects to get paid in a timely manner especially after 48 hours. I do not know if there's a legal issue with the lack of timely compensation, but I will definitely look into that.
I have called several times on Friday before 5pm. This is ridiculous and frustrating. This is my only source of income right now and I have a family that depends on me, but due to the lack of professionalism, sense of urgency and lack of due diligence on the staff of PeopleReady in Tallahassee, FL., I have come close to let my family down. I am relentless and I would not allow that, but it is hard when employed by an organization that under performs for its laborers. Honestly, I am skeptical to accept anymore assignments through PeopleReady because of the level of disrespect, untimely compensation and degrading tone by staff members. I am really considering to work with their competitors. This has been recommended by several others who has worked with PeopleReady before.

I worked 2 days and only got paid for 1 day almost a week later so they’re already lying about getting paid within 24-48 hours. Almost 2 weeks later I’ve still not been paid for the second day I worked. I called the local office and was rudely told “we paid you already.” However my bank account which I pay very close attention to only shows 1 deposit from them. When I called again I was told “it’s not our problem that we didn’t pay you, it’s you’re bank.” But wait the first day I worked my bank accepted their direct deposit, but not the second day?? Makes zero sense. PeopleReady treats people like they're idiots and outright refuse to help them. That’s how they make money, by stealing it from employees. If you don’t believe me look it up and you’ll find several lawsuits against TrueBlue/People Ready all over the country for not paying or paying late. They are scammers that take advantage of people.
On their website it says to have someone verify your I9 documents to begin to look for work. After weeks of it not working and no response to my emails I call in and are told I have to come in with my documents. I ask what is rhe purpose of having a friend do it. The lady says she doesn't know what im talking about she didn't make the website. COMPLETE waste of time.
I have provided nothing but excellent service through People Ready. In one job, I was fired by the HR lady for supposedly walking off the job early and repeatedly showing late for work. I had been keeping the schedule in the company computer, and been clocked out by a supervisor who called in my hours the day before. I then went out on a job; again provided excellent service. I was asked by a supervisor to find out where some co-workers were and did so. She was unhappy with the results and talked with them directly. One then threw me under the bus, and I was walked off the job by a manager from another department who heard the story this person told. My site supervisors didn't even tell People Ready I was off the job, as they were so mortified by this. I had to inform People Ready myself why I was not continuing the ticket.
After this, although none of this was my doing, all jobs have dried up for me. I am working one ticket every week as that employer really likes me, so for them to treat me as an unemployable pariah WHILE I am working a ticket weekly is blacklisting period!! Also, they were angry I called out on a shift when my son was in a coma and I had to handle his medical care. Their client was fine; my son would have died!!!! DO NOT USE.
I worked for the York PA branch of PeopleReady on 12/29/20. They have a policy to pay within 24 hours. Not so with this branch. Five days later and I still haven't received my pay. I have tried contacting this office numerous times by phone/email/social media and no response.
I would write a long specific review but am afraid of retaliation.. Used to be ok for side work but as of lately certain branches think it’s ok to verbally abuse you and withhold pay. They have screamed at me and made me cry.
The PeopleReady that is local to me mostly offers same day pay for their jobs listed. I opted to have my checks deposited to my bank account instead of getting their prepaid card. Because I didn't get their stupid card; every time I get paid is delayed by 3 days. I thought it was my bank at first. Nope! It's this shady business. Every paycheck. 3 day delay. It's a good thing it's only money. It would be terrible if I needed it to eat or pay bills. Stay away from this company. They are the lowest form of scum imaginable...after my ex-wife.
Was calling in per text message daily. They became angry and excluded me from eligibility for a job. The daily text messages I was receiving directed me to call. Daily. The staff at the Montgomery branch acted rude and spiteful. Would never return there again.
This is a paid subscription job site focusing on gig and contract work according to the marketing. It does provide a lot of remote offerings, but mostly as full time employee, and many jobs with no opportunities for remote work. I found the search function to be limited and I can't say it was worth a subscription.
