let me guess, in order to get one of these sweatshop jobs you will have to go through one of our fine temp services and make maybe $8.50 an hour for your hard work.

Hey man, be thankful if you get one of those jobs or had you rather everyone stay on welfare and food stamps and depend on the government to take care of them?

That's the problem right there y'all are Soooooo happy working pay nothing go nowhere jobs, that is why we are over run with warehouses. Get an education so we can get manufacturing jobs here. Where a man or woman can earn a decent living not just stay above the poverty level.

I just got a Interview for May 15 through the company.It says $9-15/hour.I drove by there and it still seems to be unfinished.Not really sure how it will go.
The jobs around Portland pay a average of about $8-10 a hour so this place seems to be staying on par.
I have an Associates Degree in Computer Science with a MCP and sadly this is the best I can do here unless I want to drive 100 miles to Nashville for more money.

Nashville is about 35 miles from Portland and you will drive it if you want the better paying jobs.

Jcdew... How did you get an interview? Do share if there is a website or what? Cuz im thinking this is the factory Sumner Emp. Is going to be hiring for and thru. And digman, sometimes these companies choose to go thru temps first and let them handle the pay scale even at a lower rate of pay... Y? Simply because they wanna test out individuals befor they invest in them fully, like dedication, hard work, simply not being lazy and actually wanting to show up to work. These temp agencies see such a huge turnover that of course big time millionaires are gonna take the cheap way out to prevent losses on bumbs. So apparently digman u must be one big job hopper?

some folks would rather stay on gov asst than work. Take a little less money but they don't have to work. Sad really.

Employment services are one of the problems in our society. It is very similar to slave labor. They get paid $14-$16/hr and you get paid $7-$8/hr. They make money doing nothing.
