PeopleReady observes the following holidays: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day. Branches are typically closed on these days. Check with your branch staff if you’ve been assigned to work on one of these days for any operational updates.

When you are assigned to a job, you will be told what the job duties are, the location of the job site, the pay rate, and whether you will be required to use safety equipment. You are always free to decline a job for any reason. If you need an accommodation to perform the job duties, please let us know.
