    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.

    They kind of take a while to respond back when you have questions for them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    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

    I have been working at Manpower

    Pros

    Good communication. Offer benefits though they are not like a fulltime. In my case they also sponsored a work visa, which I appreciate a lot. If you do well for them, they don't hesitate to work for you

    Cons

    Did not experience much of any problems yet. I would like offers to go up in career from them periodically.
