Every time I call the location in North Portland on Lombard with a question the employee's are rude. They make a person not to want call and ask any information. They're really discouraging. I would not recommend this location to anyone.
Gresham, OR 97030
Was called by Express regarding a welding position in Vamcouver, Wa. Asked to come in and interview. I sat in the waiting room for just over an hour as the women in the back all gooed and gooshed over one of them bring in their new baby. The waiting room stacked up with 6 people waiting. I left. The recruiter called me and told me he would no longer work with me because I left before the interview. This place is a joke at best.
note: all 5 star reviews from 2011 and older are for a reason! Don't waste your time or energy. Been "With" them for over a year. They have email job postings they send out but all the jobs on the list have fill dates from weeks prior and are all filled. If you are a good match for a job, don't get your hopes up because they won't place you anyways. Instead, they give you some BS excuse unless its for a major event and they need crowd control workers at min wage for a day or two.
The first 5 dispatches were to the wrong address. I put up with this incompetence because I realize the bias in hiring, where the guy who manages this branch was probably hired by a family member, or close friend. They will menace, and harass you over petty things, while they hypocritically leave black mold & maggots in other areas for weeks at a time (violation of health codes... that's how incompetent some managers are). Their incompetence is covered up by making false statements about you. Their compulsive lies will get you fired, and without cause, or provocation. It is my educated opinion (4.0 GPA) that any quality worker dispatched out by this SE 82nd branch will eventually be destroyed by slander. You won't be given opportunities, you will be lied about, slandered, defamed, harassed, belittled. You will be treated like crap while less educated, less knowledgeable, undocumented, non Oregon residents, dehumanize, and destroy your reputation with Laborworks. Having this knowledge before you begin working there (if you decide to do so) I HIGHLY recommend that you keep a daily work journal, and document everything. Only through detailed work journaling, can people have these abusive & incompetent managers removed.
the staff is wonderful! They had me working the next day
I worked with this staffing agency from 2010-2013, They treat the you like a paroled convict, They are disorganized and unprofessional, You have to hold there hand and help them with everything. There primary goal is not helping people find jobs, its helping them selves to contracts with employers. they are not on your side what so ever. I have worked with other staffing agencies like Aerotek, and Staffing Solutions, they are much more professional. Good luck
Seems like a GREAT place for you to work. Keeps you moving, on your feet. Plus you get to react with others. They seem like they don't judge you, they accept you for who you are. They allow you to reach out and connect with others. If your a talker this is the job for you. You should apply there, i'm pretty shore you have a good chance at getting hired.
