    I have been working at Manpower part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I started right away. It seemed like they wanted to get me to work as opposed to other companies that I never hear from again.

    Cons

    They gave a schedule, but the schedule I really worked didn't have the hours that were suggested.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a little more honest about the hours or coordinate better with the companies.

    Pros

    This assignment is laid back. Management is easy going and the employees are respectful.

    Being a temp limit the duties that a permanent person would be doing at this assignment. I might get 20 calls in a 9 hour day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can't give advice, this company has there rule, but a person, like myself, goes to work to work.
