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

    Pros

    The contracts I've had have been challenging and well compensated. I've enjoyed the positions offered and all have been within reasonable commute.

    Cons

    The down side is that the contracts have been very far apart. This makes using Manpower a gamble. Financially, this means struggle between contract. They are too few and far between to maintain reasonable status with the DWD.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Agents need to stay in contact more often and be more accessible to phone messages.
