TrueBlue Testimonials

“The jobs are mostly physical and energy consuming. Its doesn’t really pay well but is there for when money is needed. I now only go there from time to time..” – Indeed review

“TB has kept me busy working as much as I have wanted. In the 2 years I’ve worked for them, I have worked on 3 jobsites. So as long as you have a good work ethic TB customers will keep you around. But keep in mind this is a staffing agency, so you are temporary labor for the contractors you work for. Only downside to working for TB is no paid vacations. You do get paid sick time.”-Indeed review
