    Great work environment!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsManpowerGroup Solutions is best company I've worked for in the staffing industry. I love that everyone understands the importance of recruiting and what recruiters have to deal with on a daily basis. Management is very supportive and doesn't micromanage.

    ConsThe benefits department is the worst I've ever dealt with. Everyone is clueless, can't answer simple questions, and it takes forever to resolve issues. Compensation is very low, and Manpower doesn't take one's geographic location into consideration regarding salary.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt shouldn't be so difficult to receive answers regarding benefits. Employees shouldn't have to jump through hoops to receive answers to simple questions regarding benefits. Regarding compensation, Manpower also should take into consideration that the cost of living varies in different parts of the USA.

    Always had a job for me

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI really liked that I got to a variety of different kinds of work. It was a great way to explore all sorts of industries and possible careers.

    ConsThe pay didn't always seem to match the skill on the job. Harder work didn't always pay more... and it should.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFind more temp to hire and get the right people on the job so they get full time work.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good- American Cancer Society

    Constituent Representative Specialist (Current Employee) East Lansing, MI

    ProsManpower is a local staffing service that offers different types of job opportunities.
    In my experience working for them at American Cancer Society they have been very flexible with scheduling.
    The pay is at least above minimum wage and bonuses are available. Also, work parties.

    ConsThe supervisors at ACS have somewhat lost their touch when it comes to helping CRS agents truly better their performance so they can succeed. I also feel that it's become harder to succeed at ACS in general because telemarketing seems to be a dying business.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe actual Manpower managers are great but again the ACS supervisors could use a tune up
