    Pros

    I enjoyed the work I did and the fast past. It keeps you on your toes and I enjoys working to be the best, but I am an also a great team player open mined to an suggestions that could be better then the way I am doing something.

    Cons

    I was a temp job so I had no benefits and my boss did not really pay attention to problem until they became big one when they could have bee resolved much easier PLUS SHE WOULD TELL ME EVERY COUPLE OF MONTHS THAT THEY WERE GOING TO HIRE ME PERMANTLY. I guess she thought it would make me work harder but I always work hard it just who I am.I AM REFERING TO THE COMPANY I WAS WORKING AT NOT MANPOWER.

    Advice to Management

    She could have been open minded and paid attention to what was going in in her department
