I worked at Manpower full-time

Pros

In a growth industry, company seems focused on growing as well, sales culture, entrepreneur feeling at times.

Cons

Tough to change against "status quo" of years past, with as much forward momentum there is just as much pushback.

Advice to Management

Stay the course on what you know will grow the company, regardless of the pushback from internal people.

    I worked at Manpower as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people you meet in training are nice, as well as some of the Manpower staff. I met some really great people that are in the same situation I am.

    Cons

    The company is completely unorganized. I didn't do my onboarding until after I had already been given an assignment and worked for a week. It took almost a month to receive my first check and whenever I asked for help all they would say is that it's in the mail. I find it sad that some of the staff are lazy and really hate their jobs, so why are you even working there?

    Advice to Management

    Learn to utilize the systems you have so people aren't waiting months for the money they earned. Be better organized because we're the ones actually doing the work while you seem to not care in the least bit as long as you get paid. Also, listen to your employees because your system of high work for little reward leaves much to be desired.
