I worked at Manpower full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Most people working there are great. Collaborative and results-driven team who enjoy working together. Good benefits and nice perks available. There are opportunities to learn and opportunities for lateral or upward movement. Possibly would rate with 3.5 stars, if able, but option is not available.

Cons

At times, work becomes so intense that management fails to recognize staff efforts. Long-distance line of management can be difficult and cause breakdown in communication.

Advice to Management

Listening to staff suggestions to make a job more efficient should be exercised with greater frequency. A genuine kind word to recognize effort, pays forward multiple times.

    I have been working at Manpower full-time

    Pros

    People in general are friendly and really want to help you.

    Cons

    Change is constant, just seems to be trying to scramble to find the right mix to be the best. IT is woefully inadequate and outdated.

    Advice to Management

    Better IT and money and focus in that area.

    I have been working at Manpower full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Good networking opportunities
    - Appreciate your old job a lot more

    Cons

    - Technology issues
    - Corporate unresponsive to Branch needs
    - Unrealistic expectations for job performance
    - Feel very "replaceable" - been told there are plenty of people who would take my job for less money
    - Candidates who just don't get it: We are not a placement agency! It's not my job to find you a job, it's my job to fill orders.

    Advice to Management

    Not like they would listen anyway :)
