I worked at Manpower full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Fortune 500 experience.
Vacation is great.
Benefits are decent.

Cons

Base pay is below standard. Commission structure is a moving target and does not create incentives for hunters.
Management is done from a spreadsheet.

Advice to Management

Step away from your desk and get into the field. Reduce redundancy at the branch level. Get IT systems that are actually good.

    I have been working at Manpower full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent base pay and system tools to complete the job.

    Cons

    Not being able to do your job without a few gorillas on your back. The sheriff is always in town and has the management skills of a flashlight cop.
    There is no pride in quality of work but a race to put up arbitrary numbers. We must keep feeding the pipe of people to jobs in 48 hours or else heads will roll.

    Advice to Management

    Let recruiters have a personality, pride, and better compensation.

    Pros

    I can't think of anything to say other than they got me work, otherwise it was pretty hands off.

    Cons

    Can't think of anything negative to say about them, very positive experience

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.
