    I have been working at Manpower full-time (more than an year)

    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 worked at Manpower as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I was switching career paths and was able to gain valuable on the job training and new skills by being assigned to various job. Contract work allows for flexibility.

    Cons

    Working at a temporary Agency does not allow you to have the best benefit package.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Willing to work with schedule

    Requires a high level of organization, multitasking, and discipline. The company makes promises and many times does not make monetary adjustments for workload.

    They often promote within

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

    Pros

    The contracts I've had have been challenging and well compensated. I've enjoyed the positions offered and all have been within reasonable commute.

    Cons

    The down side is that the contracts have been very far apart. This makes using Manpower a gamble. Financially, this means struggle between contract. They are too few and far between to maintain reasonable status with the DWD.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Agents need to stay in contact more often and be more accessible to phone messages.

    Got great experience as a Procurement Coordinator at American Science & Engineering

    Former Employee - Procurement Coordinator in Billerica, MA

    I worked at Manpower full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    At AS&E, there was:
    - Free coffee/tea
    - Employee raffles
    - Treated like an employee, even though I was a contractor
    - Great pay

    Cons

    - Assignment was temporary, as I was hoping to convert to permanent
    - Received unwelcome harassment by a male employee at AS&E (I'm female)
    - No holiday/vacation pay offered until you've worked there at least one year (my assignment was less than a year).
    - Expensive benefits package for medical/dental coverage

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay was good, but PTO and vacation time would make things better. Researching the companies you partner with would also help.

    I worked at Manpower full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Exposure to a wide variety of assignments across multiple industry's verticals and clients. Great people, and excellent training and development tools/ programs.

    Cons

    I personally did not experience any negatives working here other than maybe resource redeployment challenges for example when recruiter assignments end and there are no new projects in the pipeline to offer the recruiter to avoid being on the bench.
