Using temp hires saves an employer a ton of money because they don't have to provide any company benefits such as health insurance. There are also tax advantages gained by using temps. State and federal wage laws (NOT the employer) dictate who is eligible for overtime pay. Like it or not, temp hires are not considered equal to permanent tenured employees.
Very well said. Sad but true. It sux, but that's the way it is. Amazing how such monkey business has become the new wave. With the new b.s.'ers telling us Unions are to blame, can't we all just realize we are being had? Back in the old days, we were "employees", now we are "associates",(ya know, kinda like somebody ya wouldn't call a friend or someone ya should respect) Used to be the "personnel manager" was just that, now they are the "human resources manager". Sounds like a term Hitler might like! Makes us sound like we are destined to be fertilizer!

I found some of these comments and resources useful. Frankly, I dont know what furnace to get for my home. What kind of things should you look for before making your purchase?

Does anyone know which temp place to apply too? I read a couple of temp places in this post but not sure which place to apply, or if more than one temp service sends you here. Any idea of how much the temp service pays?

I worked there for 4 months through a temp agency. three guys that started with me got hired 2 missed days one was hurt working. I showed up everyday did everything they asked and got laid off. I guess you have to be an uneducated hillbilly to get hired full time good luck with it.

They have a very good system of entering a "job pool" for specific jobs, such as welding, whereby the employees in that pool will recieve training to qualify for a permanent opening.
I agree, I do not think that a credit check is necessary at this point.

1st: 5:30am-2pm
2nd: 3:45-12:15

Temps can work 45 days on 1st shift and 45 days on 2nd before getting hired or they can work 90 days on 2nd. You can also ask to stay on 1st for 90days but your chances of getting hired are SLIM.

Where can I put in an application? A friend of mine told me about this place and told me to google American Water Heater and a link would come up. So far I have had no luck finding it.
