    I have been working at Manpower as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Placement with good companies and flexible with time off. You meet great people and can learn a variety of new experiences.

    Cons

    Low pay with almost no chance of a raise. I have worked at the same place to over two years and have had a .15 raise. I talked to another Manpower employee and they said they have had a 1% raise in 5 years. The company I am placed with piles on more work and responsibilities, but they won't approve raises.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to being a temp service instead of permanent temp modern day
    slavery service.

    I worked at Manpower (More than a year)

    Pros

    They found me 1 job.

    Cons

    This temporary company does not have your best interest at heart. They are not an employer that puts themself in others shoes even when it comes to retrieving your items that mean alot. I understand what that really feels like on both sides. And it doesnt feel good at all. We live and learn in our experiences but ive learned unfortunatly that company makes those selfish outcomes many times to alot of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Better customer service is needed within the company.

    Pros

    Always attentive to what your concerns are if you have a problem with a project you have been assigned. Shara Alters the Regional Director is the best She will take time out of her day if you need to speak with one of the hire ups

    They misrepresented one of the work assignments What was described was not what the job entailed. Therefore, I was grossly under paid for the work the was ask of me was worth much more then offered

    Advice to Management
