It could always had been worse!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Manpower

ProsDuring early years with the agency...I was kept engaged (work-wise)

ConsAs I got older (63) my assignments became less (although competence and work performance did not lack).

Advice to Senior ManagementConcentrate on your associate's abilities (experiences and work ethic), and not on their age!

The experience at Manpower could have been more helpful.

General Laborer (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX

I worked at Manpower full-time for less than a year

ProsThe people that work there are kind.

ConsThe urgency for a job for they're associate's, or to get out & hussle for more work just isn't there. The attitude is, this is what we got, take it or leave it..

Advice to Senior ManagementTake better care of your associates and they'll take better care of you....

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Like Family

Test Tech III (Current Employee)
Boise, ID

I have been working at Manpower full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThey work hard for you and truly are on your side. The company I contract for is great, we are truly one of the team here and are appreciated. The pay is great, the people are great and we really are like family here.

ConsYou're a contractor and can still be laid off at any time. The medical benefits package is very pricey, there's no sick or vacation pay. You are at the mercy of the company you are contracting for.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Manpower Temporaries

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Edgewood, MD

I worked at Manpower as a contractor for more than a year

ProsThey are very good to work for and they standby their employees. I would work for them again.

ConsThey give you late working hours while you there but don't tell you that you are working late til you are already there.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe employers there need to be upfront with their employees if they are going to need them to work late. Some people have babysitters, and you just can't call and say hey I have to work late because they have a life too.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
