    I worked at Manpower

    Pros

    No day is going to be the same, so if you enjoy topsy-turvy then the staffing agency business is for you.

    Cons

    People are an incredible variable. And when unemployment is low, then variables can be scary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people. Your folks that work directly with the customers and with people looking for employment are your best resource.

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

    Pros

    the jobs would be frequent and there would be one available every few days

    Cons

    pay roll was a nightmare, my information was wrongly written on several occasions , the jobs they would send us too would treat us in a discriminatory and unfair way just because we came from a staffing agency, and there was a long delay for payment to arrive when it would be long over due

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop exploiting, ex cons, minorities and immigrants and maybe you would do better

    They can't find their butts with both hands and the management helping.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourself!

    I worked at Manpower part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I didn't know what I wanted to do out of high school so this was a great way to expose myself to different fields.

    Cons

    Since it is temp work, you have to be able to call every week to see what's available. Every office is different, I worked for 4.
