    I worked at Manpower

    Pros

    hours are flexible, positions are plentiful and the hourly rates are pretty nice depending on your area of expertise.

    Cons

    you never know when you will lose your job. security is not promised with these contract agencies. They encourage you to join companies full time. but cut you off before the opportunity may arise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None to give

    Former Contractor - Forklift

    I worked at Manpower as a contractor (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The only pro is that you can feel guilt free about caring about them as they care about you - none.

    Cons

    I was a contracted employee and worked for manpower for years at the same facility. The benefits and pay were lousy. You are not just their employee, you are their product and you get treated as such

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I suppose there isn't much to say to management when the whole idea of "permanently temporary workers" is inherently unethical.

    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
