    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Vancouver, BC (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Manpower (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in March 2012.

    Interview

    It took months for them to make a decision. And the head office and local staff were totally disconnected. They insisted on accessing my Facebook account and had me sign on during the interview process which felt like a violation of my privacy. they also had all of the staff do an interview on me as well which was very awkward.

    Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukee, WI
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Manpower (Milwaukee, WI) in September 2011.

    Interview

    The process was grueling, I felt that the manager was inconvenienced by having to interview me, but every time I spoke to her for an interview she talked all about herself and I didn't get a word in edge wise it seemed. Then told the recruiter she felt I wasn't interested, the recruiter then coached me on how to ask for the job. At that point I realized I didn't even want it if I had to work with a woman like that.. Sounded like a churn and burn sales job that a recent college grad would be better suited for.

    Junior Programmer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hong Kong (Hong Kong)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Manpower (Hong Kong (Hong Kong)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    First interview was in Cantonese, during which the HR asked me to introduce myself in English. But as we talk about career interest, I keen on data mining is my first interest. Because of this, the HR of Manpower's data department phone me at the day which I told them I am not convenient to take part in interviews. And comparing to other HRs, she speak in a low voice, which make me feel difficult to hear her words. Maybe it was the tele-devices' problems.
