They give work but it’s not secured.i can I say they are opportunistic and not reliable, but they are better than nothing and can still survive and can continue

No job security

The job security is awful and communication with the Labourpower recruiter for my area was often quick, however not useful at all and often didn’t answer enquiries directly.

Pros

Good hours

Cons

Bad communication on position

What Was I Thinking

I thought I'd give them a go. Yes they can be quick to find work but there's no job security. One week you wok, another week, you don't. Losing valuable income.I've actually had enough and I'm very patent. Luckily for me, I found my own job and in work love doing. Delivery driver. No thanks to Laboir Power.Payroll doesn't even chase up your time sheets so you can get paid on time.

Pros

Coffee

Cons

Lots

Trash

After telling them that I worked with another agency, they completely ghosted me; which is extremely petty and disrespectful. I also lost a good offer from them, all because I worked somewhere else. Customer support is also hopeless. Never work or call here.

Unprofessional

Never ever sign up or even trust this agency. They will only profit from you and you will never get paid correctly. If any of you people get assigned to work at DB Schenker, Hoxton Park, my advice is that never accept the job. Many untrained, unprofessional people working in this place plus the staff from LabourPower are not helpful. Believe me I've been there and if my words is not good enough? Wait until you actually work there, I just hope you don't regret it and if you do? Sorry it's too late.

Pros

Free coffee

Cons

Working long hours and hourly rate sucks

I'd also rate this place with zero stars

Got sent to Vinidex as an LO operator months ago and was told an incorrect pay rate by them.I worked there for 4 weeks and did everything correctly.Then I got the (not required) phone call and they attempted to send me to another client for much less money again.I took other work offered by Action Workforce which is also a total joke of an agency.I won't be working for this mob in this lifetime or the next.Don't expect them to answer the phone if you have any issues.What a Circus that experience was.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

This agency is a Con.

No ongoing role for you

These guys obviously have lots of clients and what they will do is throw you everywhere. You won't have ongoing job unless you have connections. They dont care about your situation and will just call you anytime with short notice for available shift. Worse is they wont pay you the right amount of wage you're supposed to. And in unlucky, they wouldnt pay you for a work you did even if you call them so many times, they will always say they're fixing it but they just wont pay you because "apparently", their client didnt submit the timesheet just like what they did to me, smh

Pros

Lots of work, but awful life balance

Cons

Wrong salary, no ongoing, throw you everywhere, No stable job

Very good

It's a fantastic company to work with it. I highly recommend to try. The jobs are competitive but has to be consistent in trying to get one. All they wants is positive attitude towards work.

Very unprofessional

Send workers in tack pants, they send inexperienced casuals, stuff wages up weekly, late with tax returns and extremely rude attitude towards personnel, also very unreliable when workers are need last minute, I would not recommend them to any management that requires good production results

Pros

None

Cons

Labour power

Productive and fun workplace

Fun and easy job. People are nice and understanding. Work is usually available. Good environment. A good start in work experience. Always available parking on site.

Not the worst but definitely wouldn't go back

At the time, the employed LabourPower employees were very young and kept their maturity and mentality as such. The workplace at the time was bearable but could get very hands on and hectic within seconds at any wrong move.

Pay was always late. The longest they took to Pay me for 3 days was 3 months. Always stuffing up Pay and they never change your Bank account when req

Pay was always late. The longest they took to Pay me for 3 days was 3 months. Always stuffing up Pay and they never change your Bank account when requested. No one ever listens all they do is keep transferring your calls to other People. Pay is alright but work Management is slack.

If you are desperate for work and have no or very little experience in warehousing or admin this is the agency to go to.

They gave me good experience but there were constant issues with paying me and other workers correctly which were in the hundreds. When politely reminding them about the pay they would just say that payroll is useless and that they would sort it out . Many jobs for filling in sick leavers for their clients I was promised $32 p/h, I would then work there for two weeks 8 hours per day and be paid just $24 p/h and they would say that they ment $24 not $32. Most people I worked with though were good workers but would say that they were promised full time permanence after 6 - 12 months but we’re working under labourpower for 5+ years with the same company.
