This app has worked for me since day one. At first the "I've Arrived "feature was sometimey but since the update even it works fine. I even use the "Call Off "option if I'm unable to make it to the jobsite. All I can say is make sure you're signed up at your local office and be sure your cell number is registered as well so that the app will accept your number and personal info and job preferences.
I've been an associate of Labor Ready and now People Ready for 4 years from the New York area. I really like the concept of using an app to work straight from home instead of coming to the office. I've been using it for a week and a half and it works when it feels like it. When I do take the job I found on the app, it's been discarded from the saved jobs list because the the position for that job is full. I haven't been working in 2 weeks since the app is launched last week from my branch which is Brooklyn. I used it constantly and it says "Sorry no jobs available". I don't know what's going on unless it's some sort of a technical issue. Otherwise I would've seen more jobs that matches my profile from North Bergen, Hempstead or White Plains because White Plains sometimes serves jobs north of the Bronx. Last week it works fine but this week has issues or like I said it works at random.
This app does not show any jobs available. For the person that said that it works great for them and that for the people that it doesn't work great for are "sucky associates" just lucked out with the app. When they were texting everything was just fine. How can you go from getting a bunch of texts a day to entering this app and there are no jobs available. It has nothing to do with updating a profile either so do not go there.
Waste of time! Can't get work because there is always a repeat for the job. People Ready tells you to go to Job Stack for work,but there's hardly any. Unless it's somewhere you won't be able to get to.
I was told I had to download this app to find jobs, but when I find a job I want, and select "I'll take it", I'll get a call saying that job is no longer available... What's the point of this app if I still have to contact the office every day and see if they can put me to work?
Garbage app No jobs show until your branch posts them which looks to be never in Colorado springs. Better off just going into the office the old fashioned way to get work.
