    Management truly believes that everything is "exciting!" to their detriment. Get real.

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

    Pros

    Fortune 500 experience.
    Vacation is great.
    Benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Base pay is below standard. Commission structure is a moving target and does not create incentives for hunters.
    Management is done from a spreadsheet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step away from your desk and get into the field. Reduce redundancy at the branch level. Get IT systems that are actually good.

    Current Employee - Technical Recruiter

    I have been working at Manpower full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent base pay and system tools to complete the job.

    Cons

    Not being able to do your job without a few gorillas on your back. The sheriff is always in town and has the management skills of a flashlight cop.
    There is no pride in quality of work but a race to put up arbitrary numbers. We must keep feeding the pipe of people to jobs in 48 hours or else heads will roll.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let recruiters have a personality, pride, and better compensation.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
