They are very good at what they do and certainly supplied me with employment on a regular basis up till now
Labourer, line worker, order picker (Former Employee), Moncton, NBMay 19, 2016
Pros: Manpower has access to jobs that I cannot access
Cons: They were temporary assignments with no real possibility for full time positions
Manpower is an agency that supplies workers on a temporary basis to companies they have agreements with As such my contact with Manpower while I was working would be minimal as my daily work contact was with the companies Manpower had contracts with. Overall I am happy with the jobs they found for me and they companies I worked with through them were very fair in any dealings I had with them.

Overall good work place
Temporary Agent (Former Employee), St. Catharines, ONMarch 8, 2016
Pros: Flexible work schedule
Cons: Little diversity in job opportunities
Most of the time you would get called about a week in advance of any job opportunities, but would sometimes get a surprise phone call at 5:30 in the morning needing an emergency replacement for __________ company for 7:00am. Management was always very helpful and tried to work around your schedule for days you were scheduled, and tried to give all their workers equal opportunities. After two summers at this company, depending on the location i was called to work at I began to recognize many of my colleagues, and everyone is very friendly.
Overall a good work place to consider if you're looking for an on-call/part time job working about 3-5 days a week, with some variety in job assignments.

Manpower was a great experiance
Recruiter (Current Employee), Edmonton, ABMarch 7, 2016
Pros: Constant learning abilities to those who pay attention
Cons: Large turn over rate
The skills and knowledge that I gained from working at Manpower ensured my success at CDI. Being directed by a different manager every 3 to 6 months taught me how to adjust to the different techniques that each manger brought to the table.

Associate (Current Employee), Barrie, ONMarch 28, 2016
Cons: you make the same amount of money as someone whom has been there 15 years
Manpower hires many people, too many at times. As a worker, you must follow the company's rules and regulations at a lesser amount of pay. Generally you will have 40 hours of work, but there are times you do not.

This job was great! They always trained you when you needed improvements in some areas. Getting to and from work was not an issue. You mostly worked alone, which was good for me. You had the best hours because the students needed the evening jobs.
