No I’ve never worked at a temp agency. Sounds like you need to find a place that isn’t a temp agency if that is the experience you’ve been having. I wish you good luck in your future endeavors.

I tried Temps several times when out of work as a MACHINIST, they sent me to any and crap jobs that called them, all min wage ie: Climbing up and down a ladder to dump ground plastic into a hopper 'cause the feeder was broke and maintenance couldn't make it work, unloading a truck load of fiberglass insulation. A couple of young gal's trying to get along, but,......

I had a company that wanted me to work on a project for 2 weeks. They had me go through a temp agency. I will never do that again.

Boco, this is the US, Iowa is a right to work state, there are union jobs but not as many as you'd think.

Also coonman is getting up there in years, the ship has sailed on starting out as a laborer.

Too bad for him I guess.
I thought that was what he did.(labour).
If he is a tradesman he should be in a trade union.I was BMWE/TCRC all my working life.

I know several persons who have gone through temp agencies in our area. For the most part they were satisfied as many companies choose to use the temp services to provide the workers and then they can evaluate those they want to hire full time and be on their payroll. Done right it can be a win-win, done wrong it can be a nightmare. Temp services can work as a filtering system for many firms in helping them get work done and finding future staff.

Some of the law names are decieving. Right to work law means the employer can fire you for just about any reason. Maybe he doesnt like your haircut or that you trap.

Alot of the temp jobs here in this area are crappy and lower pay.I have worked for a couple in between permanet jobs.One of the better paying jobs I ever had was temp and not too bad of a job.But it only lasted like 5 or 6 weeks.It was construction in a brand new hosputal being built.That particular job was big on safety which impressed me

Around here the deal with them is usually if you dont like a job they send you to they ask you to at least finish your shift for that day or nigjt.And let them know you dont like it and they will find you something else.And when you go inlet them know what you are experienced in and especiallt what you like and dislike.So they can tey to match you up better.They are usually not the best jobs for sure.But sometimes its a foot the door and once in if you see something you like and just have good attendance and stick it out long enuff to move into a permanet job within the place they send you to.And then sometimes the placea they send you to you will be happy to have that temp option where you decide to make it temp.

That is so true cci. I have come to learn that a right to work state really means a right to fire for any reason.They sure did name that one wrong big time !

Does it also require an employer to keep on a slug doing inferior work, because of the union?

Unions are just extortionists

Sure, they will protect you and all your shortcomings ............no pride in that


Why not make yourself more valuable ? ...........more statisfaction in that

The term right to work is correctly named.

The “right to work” idea is a principle that affirms that every American has the right to work without being forced to join a labor union.

Mostly just bigger cities in Iowa have unions , there mostly not that strong in Iowa. Probly alot not hiring, high cost labor, lot cheaper low pay stuff around, u well find very few jobs starting more than $14, not many at that, lot $10-$12, some $13 hr jobs around. I used make almost $17 hr for at least 15 years at that much

If you want to better yourself quit dinking around with these temp services jobs, it's time to find real employment with some benefits. You always bring up your old job, forget about it, that ship has sailed and life changes and goes on. You say you have a part time night job and you want to keep it. I've got a suggestion, check with the school districts in your area, I'll guarantee they need drivers and will train you and help you get a CDL. And not all routes are the big buses, the districts all have cars and carryalls and the short buses that need drivers and these don't require a CDL. Some people here drive the 2 routes with the big buses everyday plus fill in with the smaller runs in the day and make a good living with benefits. The jobs are there for the taking,my son is a transportation director for our local district and they always need help.

I've seen you refer to retiring in a few years, you need to make better wages now so your Social Security benefits are higher. Every day you wait it's hurting your retirement.
