5 hours is a bit long, maybe use an extended stay hotel during the week (if you live w/ parents, you should have some cash left over for that).

Also, look for agencies in multiple cities around you, be honest if there is more than 1, you do not want 2 agencies placing you at the same job! Don't get stuck with those email spammers that never materialize a real job. Also, insist on full time employment with the agency (they pay you even while you are not at a job site) or else permanent placement. Those are the only good options. Temp jobs are Dead | X|

Also, just a note, some companies only hire through these agencies... so you limit your job search if you refuse to use them.
