    Pros

    They help you to find employment that otherwise isnt available.

    Cons

    my position may be temporary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    request that the company visit the idea of compensation program. they bring trinkets and send emails to the employer but me going to work earns your commission from the corporation where i am working.

    I have been working at Manpower as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    The best reasons for working here is to get a foot in the door of a company, and an easy way to find work quick if you are unemployed.

    Cons

    You need about 1800 hours before you get a paid holiday off such as Christmas. When other companies that I have heard of get a paid holiday when you work there for 90 days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better way to help transition people to other jobs when a contract expires.
