    Pros

    An awesome number of job opportunities with the highest profile temp agency in the country, a lot of great learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Will not investigate circumstances in an employer reported personnel incident on behalf of the employee. Will cut and run and will not ever speak to you again.

    Listen to your temp employees, provide the opportunity to resolve issues with clients/employees in a humane and reasonable fashion.

    I worked at Manpower

    Pros

    Really no pros because if you don't have a connection it is hard to even get your resume thru..

    Cons

    They do not help you grow. As long as you are employed with them and they get their share, they do nothing to help you progress.. You are stuck where you are!

    Advice to Management

    Management should have a genuine talent acquisition pool and people should be able to grow with the company.
