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

Companies that partner with LaborWorks often hire our employees for full-time or permanent positions. To maximize your chances of getting hired as a full-time employee, we recommend the following:

Show Respect
When you’re at the jobsite, be respectful of your co-workers and mindful of the company equipment.

Communicate
When you get a job, you can demonstrate your dedication to the employer by meeting with your supervisor to ask questions and review the job’s rules, objectives, and goals. If you enjoy your position, communicate this with your supervisor to let them know you are looking for full-time work.

Prepare
Preparation begins at home with a good night’s sleep to improve your safety, alertness, and effectiveness at the jobsite. Remember to bring a lunch and positive attitude, and you will be better prepared to pursue full-time employment.

Work Hard
Employers notice hard workers. The more productive you are, the more likely that you will be requested back to the jobsite.

Do you also have work on Saturdays and Sundays?

LaborWorks fills positions 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. Posted hours on Saturday are from 6am to 10am.  LaborWorks is closed on Sunday but several employers do have opportunities for Sunday employment.

How much will I get paid?

Pay starts at or above minimum wage, depending on your skillset and the specific job.

How and when will I get paid?

LaborWorks pays workers at the end of each workday when they return to the office. The exception is Sunday when the office is closed. Payment is given in the form of a personal paycard (‘smart debit card’), which allows you to withdraw cash at any ATM. You can also use the card to purchase items from stores.  

Do I need a Driver License to get work through LaborWorks?

LaborWorks does not require that you have a driver’s license, and most job sites are on public transportation routes. Though some jobs will require a driver’s license due to the specific nature of the position, many jobs have no such requirement.

I am not a U.S. citizen. Can I find work with LaborWorks?

LaborWorks complies with all federal and state employment laws. You can find work with us if you are a lawful permanent resident, or if you are legally authorized to work with a Green Card, visa, or other type of work authorization.
