Do you have any tips for turning temporary work into a full-time position?

To maximize your chances of getting hired as a full-time employee, we recommend the following:

  • Show respect: Be respectful of your co-workers and the equipment at the jobsite.
  • Communicate: When you get a job, review your job’s rules, objectives, and goals with your supervisor. Ask questions and communicate clearly and effectively with them. If you enjoy the work you are doing, let your supervisor know that you are looking for full-time work.
  • Prepare: To improve safety and alertness, make sure to get a good night’s sleep the night before, then just bring a lunch and a positive attitude with you to our office the next morning.
  • Work hard: The more productive you are, the more likely it is that you will be requested back to the jobsite.

How will I get paid?

At the end of each work day, come back to the office to get paid by LaborWorks. You will receive payment in the form of a Global Cash Card (‘smart debit card’) which allows you to withdraw cash at any ATM. You can also use the card to purchase items from stores. Or, you can request direct deposit to be made weekly to your personal bank account. It’s up to you.

Do you have any tips for employers thinking about using LaborWorks?


To maximize productivity from temporary workers, we recommend the following:

  • Plan – Discuss your staffing needs with the departments in which you plan to use the temporary employees. Ask your employees for suggestions about how and where temporary employees can be best used.
  • Communicate – Let your employees know why you are bringing in temporary employees and what they will be doing. Your employees should feel excited by the temporary help.
  • Prepare – Allocate workspace, tools and equipment for each temporary employee you plan to use. Assign someone to meet the workers at the door and introduce them to their supervisor. Let the workers know how and to whom they should direct questions.
  • Create Goals – Tell temporary workers exactly what they will be doing, and clearly state your basic work rules and the specifics of their task. Set daily goals for each of your workers.
  • Provide Incentives – If you are using temporary workers to find potential employees, then let them know. This information helps to motivate a higher performance.
