Executive Assistant and A/P Representative (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 25 November 2017
Manpower always found me great temp opportunities. They gave training opportunities and lots of encouragment. The hardest part of the job was staying informend and up to date with technology. The part of loved the most was the experience I gained by temping.
Staffing Specialist (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 30 October 2017
put your head down and work you will do well but there is little opportunity for advancement as the upper management (Calgary) is very much a clique and not interested in moving people forward. ZERO life balance. Highly fear based management style
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 21 October 2017
My day would consist of working on customer accounts, talking with customers on the phone helping them with any issues they may have with their account and providing information on their yearly budget plan along with other matters. I acquired a great deal of information on credit and collection procedures, budget planning. The management were very professional, courteous and very considerate. The workplace worked as a team and requested team input. The hardest part of the job having to call customers with delinquent accounts. The enjoyable part being able to help customers make arrangements to keep their accounts in good standing.
Accounting clerk on call (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 14 October 2017
Being on call, it depended on the work assigned and the company sent to. Sometimes it was a pleasant environment with very defined type of work assigned. Others, could be an unorganized company with lots of "nothing to do" time in spite of asking where the help was required and willing to give a hand. The hardest to work on call, is not feeling as part of the organization. The most enjoyable was the opportunity to meet new people and make some business contacts for the future.
Lots of opportunity to play tennis while not working, make new acquaintances, driving around new places.
Not paid enough, not called more frequently, lack of sense of belonlging.
Stocker (Former Employee) – Cornwall, ON – 5 October 2017

General Labourer/General Office (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 12 September 2017
Working throught Manpower is a great learning experience. The people are very helpful and willing to go the 'extra mile' for their clients. A great pleasure to work with/through. The only problem would be is that it is hard to find the type of work I am looking for full-time administration. Also I have moved out of the area.
It was for a co-op program, though amazing people to work with.
Co-op Student (Former Employee) – Pickering, ON – 22 August 2017
I wasn't working with them as a staffing company, but as their assistant around the office of Manpower it self in Pickering. The Pickering location is a wonderful place to be in, and amazing people who are always willing to help you find a job, either its a temp job or the odd permanent job. Either way they are dedicated to work with people to gain the experiences they need as well as money is required to live, I will forever and always recommend working with Manpower.
Scotiabank Contract (Former Employee) – Stratford, ON – 21 August 2017
I enjoyed my contract specialist, the hard part was the lack of benefits and the salary. The compensation was very low and made it difficult to continue with them, but they did help me secure my current job. I quite enjoyed working with my contract specialist as she was always a pleasure and worked hard to get the best for me!
WAREHOUSE LABOURER (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 21 August 2017
This is a good Temporary Job Placement Agency to work for. They do offer benefits and will keep you working if they can. My contact there was very easy to talk to, and understanding of my needs, and what jobs would be good for me.
Professional Talent Consultant (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 2 August 2017
I worked there for 6 months and at the beginning it was great but I wasn't getting paid what I am used to and no training was given to learn about 'their' processes. I was always walked all over and it wasn't good for my health in the end
