When did this change? They used to use Randstad.

They stopped using Randstad in June of 2012. Provisional employees work for CKNA. They have a different pay scale and a different benefit package.

They don't go through temp services anymore. You have to apply online through http://calsonicjobs.com/

It's a decent job I guess although I would never work there. I cannot fathom working 7 days per week 12 hour days. I have a family and those hours are not feasible. My kids want to see me morethan just a few hours a week. I do know someone that works there though and it's pretty sad that there paycheck after working that many hours is equal to my husbands who only works a straight 40.

Not sure about the provisionals but I recently had an 84 hour check that was awesome. It's a great job but not for people that can't handle the heat or excess OT. It would be tough on someone with small children.

Long hours in the heat is never ever healthy. If you must work and not afraid of hard work then those kinds of jobs are for you.
Not long after retiring, strokes set me back and more health problems but the more you earn now, is way better than when you can't work.
Long hours is hard on a growing family.
Think about their needs and the time you are growing together. If not you will grow apart.
You can't put a growing family and wife on hold when just about every plan centers around that job.
It isn't a balance.

So just how much per hour do you make, and how much did you take home after taxes and so on for 84 hours?

Wow $1500 in one weeks time. Man that will pay my rent, gas, groceries, and all my other months bills (water, electric, phone and cable). What do you do with the other three checks you get the rest of the month? Must be nice! I am going to try and get one of them 1200 jobs.

Glad to hear jobs are being added here in TN. I'm a provisional employee at ckna and I average 65-72 hours a week. I do enjoy the $ but it will take a while to get hired in from what I've seen and heard (2-3 years). If you can take the heat and lots of OT this jobs for you however it shouldn't take that long to be hired in. The pros and cons pretty much balance out at ckna.

We need local work ethic training. A lot of people just want to work just enough to get what they need. I tell all the young guys to have a good fun clean life but work all you can, these are your working years. This "you are in the south and that is how we do things" needs to be shoved out the window and the guy who says it needs to be terminated from the company. Folks don't know how to work. They will all be pisssed off that they may lose their food stamp credit cards too. I am happy jobs are coming, I am retired so i am happy for others. Just don't blow it. Work hard and make it profitable for the company. OK team?

I don't know for sure how they do holidays for the temps but once you are hired in you will have it soooo good. 2 weeks paid shut down in the summer and winter. Health insurance is through Cigna and covers well and doesn't cost too much for a family plan. Plus the 401k they offer is great. I have heard of a couple of temps getting hired in after 1 year. I think it depends on the department you are in and if you are a good worker. Also if you get a good supervisor or a prick.
