    Pros

    Quick work, when you need a job.
    Pays weekly, without holding back the first pay period.
    Often leads to permanent position.

    Cons

    Not guaranteed a permanent position - even after working as a contract employee for nearly two years.
    No increases in salary or vacation time.
    No real benefits. Technically, they offer insurance, but it's unaffordable at their pay rates.

    Advice to Management

    For long-term contract employees (who have certainly brought some revenue to your company) offer some kind of negotiation services with the employer.

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

    Pros

    Loved the company I was placed with. The placement was great. The pay was as agreed for the work that was done. The company I was with went above and beyond for me.

    Cons

    Manpower couldn't get their documentation right and caused me to go multiple weeks without a paycheck. Even then, I got nothing to recompense me of the aggravations they caused beyond an apology.

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully, by now, they've fired the manager that was in charge at that time. Regardless, I have no intention of ever recommending them or ever going back.
