    Wow, I’m not the only one I see? What’s, really going on? Technology, today no verbal communication.

  7. Keisha on December 9, 2017 at 9:15 am

    Tell your local branch to set you up for test alert. Text yes to 42800. Now the app is another thing it doesn’t work if the branch you work from give you a low rating. The branch managers at all the people ready will never have any luck. They can and will opt you out of text alert if they don’t like you. Unprofessional right? Text work to 42800 everyday to find work.

    • Anonymous on July 26, 2018 at 5:35 am

      Keisha, you know more about People Ready apps than their employees. Couldn’t set text alerts because wicked white lady put bad info in computer on me. Never had complaits abt my work. She was just evil!

  9. Mike on November 1, 2017 at 12:53 pm

    By the way. Job stacks customer service sucks! Ive left them messages last week, and not one returned from them.

  10. Mike on November 1, 2017 at 12:28 pm

    I agree, it doesn’t work! My branch has no idea how to help me. When I do call my riddell rd branch office, she gets very upset that I did. I have to press 1 to get to a live person. But she said I could fired for pressing 1, and it wasn’t an emergency. When I did finally get thru and I asked her who I should call for my question, since she had no idea, she said ask who ever you want!! And actually hung up on me!
    Im working to a good impression for the company. Apparently she doesnt appreciate it!!

    Companies suck cant talk to a person

  19. Forrest henderson on June 20, 2017 at 2:49 am

    I cannot get reply from 42800. Though they can see my sent text. They said it was my provider. But after three days of investigation with my provider.(boost)
    They determine it was the short code system. I even called people ready I.T. department who ended up giving me the whole ten digit number to text. Still nothing. I believe certain providers systems just don’t work well with short codes. Though that doesn’t explain why the long number didn’t go through.
