    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.

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.

    I worked at Manpower full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Compensation was fair, and received yearly raises. Work hard, and your hard work will pay off.

    Cons

    Working in an office with very few people and having to go out weekly and do door to door sales. On call with a client 24/7/365, which made work-life balance challenging. Due to few positions within the company personal growth was difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire sales people to do the sales and allow the Staffing Specialist to do just that....staff.

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

    Pros

    - Pay was decent
    - Work was rewarding (helping others find work)
    -Great work ambiance

    I truly enjoyed this job because I was helping out employees during the recession find employment to meet their expenditures. The people who worked at Manpower were really nice, and all had a positive attitude. I believe the hiring managers were really good because there was no tension in the workplace. Overall a good company.

    Cons

    - Many of the jobs offered were revolving door types of jobs
    - Not a lot of opportunities for advancement

    My only real problem with the company was the lack of opportunities for advancement. I have heard that this has changed in recent years. Remember I was working for Manpower during the peak of the recession so I am sure this had something to do with it. Either way I would have liked for more opportunities as I was would have enjoyed working at Manpower for a longer period of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Let employees know of realistic advancement opportunities

    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.
