    I have been working at Manpower full-time for less than a 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.

    I worked at Manpower full-time for less than a 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 for more than a 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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to warn a worker when their assignment is near finish instead of calling the same day it's over.

    My Supervisor was awesome. A particular co-worker was arrogant, egotistical, pre Madonna type person.

    I have been working at Manpower

    Pros

    Good communication. Offer benefits though they are not like a fulltime. In my case they also sponsored a work visa, which I appreciate a lot. If you do well for them, they don't hesitate to work for you

    Cons

    Did not experience much of any problems yet. I would like offers to go up in career from them periodically.
