Is Temp Work Worthwhile?

But from the “doesn’t that stink” file, some downsides of being a temporary holiday worker.

Money says you won’t get full time health benefits in most cases.

And it says seasonal work tends not to be glamorous: don’t expect training for front line jobs, which might have you saying “doesn’t that stink.”

In other words, expect to do warehouse work, not driving the cool FedEx truck to someone’s front door.

Despite the downsides, and lack of full time benefits, a seasonal job can lead to full time opportunities, and in the least is a resume builder.

So consider it if you are looking for holiday cash, and don’t waste your money.
