Excellent Talent Placement Agents

Manpower Associate On Long-Term Temporary Contract Assignment (Current Employee)
Milwaukee, WI

I have been working at Manpower as a contractor for more than a year

ProsThere are two ways to work here: 1) As a temp/temp to hire, etc for Manpower's clients and 2) As a direct employee for Manpower (the company). As the first, I have had nothing but a great experience. Their online application process & applying for positions is easy and once connected with their Talent Placement Specialists, they go above and beyond to find the best position for you and their clients.

ConsI have no cons for this excellent company! Though they are indeed large, I have never had a phone call not returned immediately by my Job Agent.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work! Continue to reward your Talent Placement Specialists!

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

The training I received at Manpower was outstanding. They invest well in their employee development.

Staffing Representative (Former Employee)
Rockford, IL

I worked at Manpower full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat staff, freedom to make things happen, compliant with employment law, fair, and all above board.

ConsSometimes the management is distant and moody, leaving you not sure where you stand on many things.

Advice to Senior ManagementEven if follow through is not your best skill, it is a must for upper management. If you say you are going to do something, you need to do it for the good of the team and the reputation with your clients.

Great company, though it struggles to communicate effectively internally.

Branch Manager (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at Manpower full-time

ProsIn a growth industry, company seems focused on growing as well, sales culture, entrepreneur feeling at times.

ConsTough to change against "status quo" of years past, with as much forward momentum there is just as much pushback.

Advice to Senior ManagementStay the course on what you know will grow the company, regardless of the pushback from internal people.

An over all good work experience.

Temporary Worker (Current Employee)
Celina, OH

I have been working at Manpower full-time for more than a year

ProsThe job qualifications were easy to meet. I'm payed above minimum wage with pay increases every few months and rewarded monthly for perfect attendance.

ConsNot flexible in regards to schedule. High level of activity is expected from its workers which is fine if you enjoy a high energy work environment.

This has been an eye opening experience for sure.

Help Desk Agent (Current Employee)
Daleville, IN

I have been working at Manpower full-time for more than a year

ProsI enjoy the convenience of weekly pay.

ConsThe assignments are long, but there is always the chance that they will let you go without notice.

Advice to Senior ManagementI have never had a problem with the management until this last assignment. I was paid straight time for my over time and at least 6 weeks ago and I still have not been paid for the hours I worked. I should not have to keep asking for earned wages. I have inquired over and over again about this pay and still have not receive it..

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
