    I have been working at Manpower as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    ManPower is very good at following through and matching you up to opportunities that fit. Also, they pay fair wages, compared to other staffing agencies. I enjoy working with ManPower because the staff are easy to talk to and understand the need to keep busy.

    Cons

    Cons are that ManPower isn't necessarily great at always keeping the gaps filled. You have to check in with them regularly and pester them and still sometimes end up a week or two without an assignment. I suggest using multiple staffing agencies.

    I have been working at Manpower full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Worked with Tallahassee, FL and Dalton, GA. Signed up with them in Reno, NV and Albany, NY (ya I move a lot) Tallahassee and Dalton kept me working and even found a few perm jobs from them. Tallahassee is my fav office.

    Cons

    tried to sign up with the in Savannah, GA but GA doesn't run like everyone else does now and they are a pain to even contact someone had no luck there.

    Advice to Management

    GA needs to go back to the old way or try something new all so the MACC number is a pain.

    I have been working at Manpower as a contractor

    Pros

    If you don't like talking to people, they're easy. I haven't experienced a payroll issue in my 2 years with them. Haven't given me any issues. Holiday pay is definitely a perk.

    Cons

    It can be a pain to contact them due to no/disconnected phone number.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with employees a bit more. I,e - pay rate increase periodically. I've had to ask my boss where my contract is in order to receive a pay increase. I was told at the hire on meeting that it would be done periodically, but it has not.
