This is one layout of a cover letter for manual labor positions. You can adapt it and put it into your own words. I just wanted to give you an idea of what a cover letter for these agencies may look like.
Manual labor can be one of the hardest, most unappreciated jobs in the world. While education and training can be very important, in some cases it may be irrelevant. I was once asked by a son of one of my closest friends, how he could best do a cover letter for a company that makes milk cartons. The plastic type that companies use to deliver gallons of milk. He said it was just a job where he would have to learn to work on a machine and to press a few buttons and pour bags into a hopper. I told him to focus on his dependability and his willingness to do any task that he is asked. This worked well for him and he has been at the same job in the same plant for 11 years now and he is making a good living. He actually enjoys the job still to this day. He calls it his no stress 8 hour vacation time. Plus the fact that he now pulls in over $ 18.00 per hour with full benefits doesn't hurt. Are you in it for the long haul? Let the employer know and up your chances to get that manual labor job!
