    I have been working at Manpower full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    ManpowerGroup as a company prides itself on ethics and doing the right thing. There is no pressure from management if you do your job.

    There isn’t much incentive wise to encourage staff to staff but you do get 5 weeks annual leave per year.

    Cons

    The cons at the moment is the global market, you can’t help but notice that the work isn’t coming in, which also means there is no room to develop a long term career at ManpowerGroup.

    Pros

    Smart people, willingness to look creatively at the staffing industry, high desire to make a difference in the lives of the people who work for and with them.

    Cons

    Needs to improve technology & process. Speeding up the onboarding process is necessary in a tight economy.

    I have been working at Manpower full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I signed on with Manpower after many failed attempts at even getting a job interview. I'm a fairly driven individual, but since I'm not from the US, I had a hard time knowing how to present myself here. I tried for 3 months to get a job at one specific company, with no success. One Friday, I walked into the Manpower office, introduced myself, talked with the recruiter, and within a week I had a great job. It's been that way all year, as soon as I walked out of that temp position, another one was lined up for me. We moved an hour north, and I transitioned smoothly into to the new area, since I had another GREAT job lined up. Both my recruiters were thorough, friendly, encouraging, and direct. It was/is their goal, to help me further my career, by placing me in positions where I can learn, which was my request. I have little to no complaints.

    Cons

    Unless you work with a certain organization for 6 months or more, you do not get paid time off on National holidays, and Manpower doesn't offer PTO to begin with, but this is a temp agency, can't really expect different. I'm a little discouraged by some of the reviews I've seen online, I obviously hit the jackpot with the two offices I worked with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your people, so that my experience could be over the board.
    Make sure that those who are recruiters are skilled at that. Not just handling admin type people, who are easier to place, but also the manual labor and 'stranger' positions.

    Pros

    Quick employment opportunities for various companies.

    Cons

    Not enough hours, but then again I havent been asked if I was interested in working for other companies other than the one I work for a couple hours a month.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask your temps if they are interested in working more hours for other places.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to warn a worker when their assignment is near finish instead of calling the same day it's over.

    My Supervisor was awesome. A particular co-worker was arrogant, egotistical, pre Madonna type person.

    Pros

    I was able to work independantly, I liked my schedule, and the employees were friendly. in addition the work was not strenuous and tedious, but more enjoyable to complete daily tasks

    Cons

    I had to be able to muti-task as the maintenence person to versatility was a challenge. i had to make sure I paid attention to detail, or that would boomerang the operation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
