    Current Contractor - Anonymous Contractor

    I have been working at Manpower as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Friendly Staff.
    - Very helpful.
    - When they find a job that fits you and you're willing, they do everything they can to put you into that position.
    - Easy to understand structure.
    - Can help you get into big well known companies.

    Cons

    - No communication on how you're doing at the position you're in.
    - No salary increase (been there for years. no change to the salary, despite getting a ton of praise at work).
    - For some people (not for me), it can be a con if your supervisor is in another state and you can either be alone or be with someone who can be just as clueless.
    - Their health insurance costs can be steep, especially if you're not working that many hours.
    - You are either gonna be in the same position forever or the company you're a temp for will hire you. Its the only route it is going to go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give praise and show appreciations to workers who have been there for a long while.

    I worked at Manpower full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    It was nice that they didn't really get in the way of my relationship with the company I was placed with and just let us do our thing.

    Cons

    There was little to no positive communication, no training for future growth in any capacity, no benefits, contractors are essentially part time workers that work 40 hours a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide your contractors with more opportunity for growth and better rewards for working what is essentially a full time job.
