As you can see in this blog that many people have taken the Tescor Survey for Labor Ready and have failed the personality test, and have been turned away from working a job!  The Tescor Survey is a behavioral psychological assessment and integreity test designed to be a pre-employment tool for many types of businesses.  I also went to Labor Ready looking for work, whereas I was told to take a Tescor Survey before employment could be offered. I took the survey, which asked about theft, drug use, anger issues, RACE, etc. When I finished, I was told I wasn’t qualified for employment!

I am a very honest person, and answered accordingly, of which I should have had no problems. I am a NY State Licensed Security Guard that has had to pass drug tests and background checks so there should have been nothing negative on my part. One of the Questions that raised a red flag to me was. Have you ever had to physically had to defend your self? These are all yes or no questions.  I was honest and said yes!

When I was around 25 years old I was in the small City of Batavia on a pay phone talking with my dad when I was jumped by a gang of teenagers who hit me from behind with a glass bottle to my head.  I got away from them and ran to the nearest store to call the cops for help!  Labor Ready is suppose to be the leading multinational source of dependable labor for companies in a variety of industries.

I have Used Labor Ready in the past to hire guys for work but after the way I was treated I will no longer do business with a company that treats good hard working Americans that way, when I really needed a job and Labor Ready was a Last resort ditch effort to pay the bills and feed my family and I was turned away because of a silly survey shame on you Labor Ready I hope that this Blog takes a bite out of your bad business Practices!  You should really change your way of hiring!  When I walk in and see drunks and thugs getting a job before me something is not good with your company!

I went to Labor Ready looking for work, whereas I was told to take a Tescor Survey before employment could be offered. I took the survey, which asked about theft, drug use, anger issues, RACE, etc. When I finished, I was told I wasn’t qualified for employment! I am a very honest person, and answered accordingly, of which I should have had no problems. Nothing negative on my part. When I asked Julie why I was disqualified, she informed me that she didn’t have that info, and that I should contact Tescor. I looked them up on the computer when I got home, called them, and was informed that Julie at Labor Ready lied to me about having this info! The representitive from Tescor (Merchants Information Solutions) told me that Labor Ready “would” have that info, and to contact them back. When I called Labor Ready back, I got the same response from Julie! She said she didn’t have that info. Obviously, someone is lying, and I have a legal right to know why I was disqualified based on my answers!!!

I have worked for L.R. of and on for over ten years so when they started using tescor I was already in the system I failed this test at another agency thier survey asked “If you saw someone steeling on the job would you report it” “If you saw someone doing drugs on the job would you report it” truthfully, I would mind my own business but that answer is wrong.wrong answers to questions like these caused me to fail the survey . And isnt it more like a test. I never heard of failing a survey. These test are unfair and just used to eliminate people so that agencies dont have to spend money giving an interview . I could go on and onabout how bad labor ready is. I came in one morning from a night job and they asked to work another job because they were short of people they took us in the L.R. van I decided to take a nap when I awoke we where crossing a picket line. News cameras, politicans, protesters everywhere. later that night they went to LR to slash tiers and cut brakelines on the van.

This just happened to my brother-in-law. As my sister told it… He was in the office with three Hispanics, all of whom received applications without taking this “survey”. My brother-in-law completed the survey and without any discussion was told he didn’t qualify. This is outrageous, as he has done everything from hands-on construction to running crews or full projects. He may have been “over-qualified” for what they had, but he would have taken any work. He has been unemployed for 2 years and the family needs him to work just as much as an “unskilled” laborer.

I just went to L.R. and was given the same bullshit. I am a very good worker and need a job but for some reason all they want is to hire drunk ass, stoned out of the mind, immigrant prize fighters.This in my opinion is offensive and prejudiced and I think that this test needs to be stopped or L.R. needs to be shut down and investigated or they need to be boycotted until they stop that stupid test.Everyone that has been affected by this and told that L.R. does not know why they were disqualified needs to get together on a class action lawsuit to at least make it so that they have to inform people why they were disqualified to work there when at least half of the questions should have no bearing on qualification for employment.Why do they need to know your skill level in fighting or how many times you have had to defend yourself physically unless they are gonna give you a job as a mma fighter or put you in an underground cock fight.It is one of the biggest loads of bullshit that I have ever been privy to witness.

My 19 year old son who is very smart and has been looking for a job went to the LR and took this stupid test. First of all we have never been on welfare, got food stamps, or done drugs, and to ask all these to someone who is trying to get an honest job is absurd. He was given questions unrelated to a career and more ludicrous topics then told he failed, but no reason could be given as to why he failed. Told come back in a year and take it again. Why should he have to wait a year, even the DMV gives you a 24 hr retake. These people are jokes, unfair and this test is unfair. When someone is already down on their luck, depressed over being unemployed and then you throw them questions of “how would you handle hand to hand combat” blah blah blah, , , I pray everyday for my son to get a job and succeed and I know he will! I also know it wont break him/us from trying and this TESCOR SURVEY is for clowns! What do they do for people with A.D.D. Dyslexia, Asbergers Synrome, according to the HEPA Federal Laws this type of Labor Temp Service is violating several terms. So I advise anyone else that ends up going to the Labor Ready Service and takes their 73 question to test to make some noise if they also say you failed for no reason.

Today my boyfriend came in and said that he didnt quailfied for labor ready because of a survey. first i could of sworn that a survey was YOUR opinion right? well in this case its not. he was asked the question if someone in the work place tried to fight you would you fight them back? he answered rarely. he failed that SURVEY because he answer that question wrong i guess. what is this? it sounds like a scheme right? something needs to be done about this because people are getting jhiped out of what is rightfully theirs… what i would say is say no to everything no use your common sense… even though you wouldnt let anybody beat you up in the work place and what does fighting have to do with it anyway… what they should be asking is what kind of experience do you have or where do you see yourself in the next five years… they know that they are wrong and god dont like ugly so better believe ya’ll they will get what they are looking for… just keep your heads up and stay focused because when on door close’s another door opens… and most of the time when you get a job from them they are shiity and try to do you wron g in the end. example my mothers boyfriend went through labor ready for a job before they had the “SURVEY” and the job he works at now hes been working at for years and he became the top seller in his job but they rufuse to give him a raise… they wont promote him and barely give him hours, so he’s like what is the point working for them… dont worry the problem will be solved you know why because its them thats making a bad name for themselves… so like i said. keep cool and stay focused. it will come for all of you.. might not be when you want it but it will happen JUST HAVE FAITH… and if you know anybody that needs a job warn them aboiut labor ready so they dont have to go through the same thing…

  1. if you people try not be stupid, I can explain it…

    I passed it a year ago, but didn’t work for them. Anyway, what they “test” for is aggression and impulse. So you say NO to anything remotely violent. Say NO to anything impulsive.

    I think there was a question about “I like labor ready because I get paid that day”.

    OK. that is a red flag. If you admit you need $$$ today, it means you are dopehead who needs dope right now! Or you are broke and you will steal.

    You say that you will ALWAYS turn someone in. You ALWAYS put the “team” ahead of you or getting the job done quickly.

    It is not about YOU. It is a test that has right answers and wrong answers. You all just chose the wrong answers.

    If you are still pissed, I think throwing a brick thru a certain window might make you feel better.
