    Pros

    Fantastic benefits, opportunity to improve yourself both professionally and personally, great company reputation in the market place and a stable place to work and build a long lasting career in the staffing industry.

    Compensation plans are significantly lower than industry average. Wide-spanning decisions are made at a corporate level that affect individual branches negatively.

    Create a compensation plan for individual recruiters to compensate top performers for their work better.

    I have been working at Manpower

    Pros

    Manpower was very supportive in assisting me with Networking and helping me to find employment. They have been consistently making certain that everything is going okay with my worksite and shown that they are there to assist me if I require it.

    Cons

    I do not like not knowing if my temp job will turn into full time or if I need to be actively looking for a new job.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to give Veterans full support. The 3 week class that I went through was extremely helpful.
