    I have been working at Manpower full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    They help you to find employment that otherwise isnt available.

    Cons

    my position may be temporary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    request that the company visit the idea of compensation program. they bring trinkets and send emails to the employer but me going to work earns your commission from the corporation where i am working.

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

    Pros

    This is a self starting position - you simply do your job, you do not have your branch manager breathing over your shoulder, which is great!

    Cons

    Lack of promotional options due to lack of availability in smaller offices. Regional manager, however, spent too much time in the branch contradicting what was being done and what the branch manager instructed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers with more experience. I had a hard time taking instruction from the branch manager when the regional manager was instructing something completely different.
