3 Temporary Staffing Agencies That Pay Daily

Updated on May 5, 2018

Paid Daily Temp Jobs Are a Godsend for Emergencies

Emergencies happen to everyone. We all need a little extra cash here and there. These temporary staffing agencies save the day when you need your pay check today.

What to Remember When Applying for Temporary Jobs

Staffing agencies can be hectic and busy places. The office staff may be answering calls from employers, handing out job assignments and filling out paperwork to set up payouths to employees. That’s a good sign that they have lots of jobs needing to be filled.

Be patient. Be courteous. Be respectful of the office staff. They are busy helping you and everyone else get work and get paid.

Be assertive if you have questions. They want you to succeed.

Matching Jobs to Your Skill Level and Stamina

Auto auction driving can be a lot of fun. On auction day, drivers are needed to take vehicles through the auction bays as buyers look them over and make bids. Other times vehicles need to be moved around the lot to prepare for the auction. A clean driving record is required.

Auto auction detailing and car washing often pay more than driving cars around the lot but they is more strenuous. Also consider the weather before accepting this job. At times it will be too cold to get wet while washing the cars.

Hotels and resorts sometimes need help cleanng their rooms. Once a room is empty and the guests are gone, the hotel prepares the room for the next guest. This is not housekeeping, where the staff makes beds and sets out new towels for guests staying the night again. Regular staff usually is responsible for that. But if the hotel is short staffed, temp workers will help turn over the room. Cleaning the bathroom, stripping and remaking the beds and general cleaning are all much easier and faster than normal housekeeping because there is no extra clutter from guests to get in the way.

Construction clean up is a strenuous job. It requires going to a construction site, so personal protection equipment such as steel toe footwear, a hard hat and a safety vest must be worn. Sweeping up after workers have finished an area may be all the task requires, but often there is a lot of debris and left over materials that need to be thrown away. Expect to do at least a moderate amount if lifting.

Event security can be another fun job. Concerts, sporting events and special events such as college graduations require help with security. Many people are needed for crowd directing, parking control and to help people through the metal detectors as they enter. Often at some point during the shift, you have a vantage point to see some of the show or game. Back ground checks are required for these jobs.

Concession stands during sporting events also need extra help. Serving food and taking credit card and cash payments are the main tasks of the job. It can be very hectic and fast paced but shifts usually go by quickly. Standing, talking to customers and working in a small space with others the whole shift will likely be required. Background checks and paid training from the company are usually required.

What Types of Temp Jobs Should You Accept?

What to Do When You Arrive at the Job Site

Introduce yourself and what company you are from.

Be assertive. The first person you speak to may not know that you are coming. There should be a contact person listed. Ask for them. If there are any questions or concerns contact the staffing company for help.

Be patient. The hiring company may need a little time when you arrive to determine where you will be working that day. Things change on the job site frequently. People call in sick. The previous day‘s tasks were completed early or late. Companies usually hire temps when things aren’t going as planned, so it’s best to be patient while they figure out how to best use your time and effort. But, either way, you should be getting paid even if you have to sit down for a few minutes while they figure things out.

Be safe. Do not take on tasks that look unsafe. Call the office if you have a concern. For example, you may have been hired to monitor the metal detector at an event, but you are not required or trained to remove a boisterous drunk. Have regular security or police officers do that. Call any concerns to the attention of the manager you are working for. You are not required to do anything not in the job description and especially nothing that is unsafe.

Drink water throughout the day. Keep water with you. Dehydration slows you down and can make you sick.

Remember that at the end of the day, your wallet will be heavier. That’s a good thing.
