    I worked at Manpower as a contractor

    Pros

    I was in need of a job in the manufacturing field after a long period of being out of the workforce. I was placed at a company which suited my needs. Although it wasn't a temp to perm position, it served me well until I was able to acquire direct hire employment. The staffing specialist was always very accommodating to my needs.

    Although health insurance was offered, it was too expensive for my pay scale so I had to forgo it.
