Secretary (Former Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – 8 November 2012
typical day would be answering multiple phone lines, interacting with customers, filing papers, data entry, computer work, shipment orders, multitasking. i learned to answer multiple phone lines and when busy to remain calm. the coworkers were great they bought me lunch gave me a ride when i didnt have a car. the hardest part of the job would be balancing multiple things at once but once i figured out to do the job i became very comfortable. the most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people.
Accounts Payable Clerk (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 27 June 2017
A busy position indeed, opening 400 pieces of mail per day, distributing to various accountants on site using a chart, entering information into database as to keep track of whom received what invoice. Taking all marked mailbags to the office downstairs where it was flown to Calgary office for payment within the 30 day set term.
Administrative Assistant (Casual) (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 20 June 2017
While working with Manpower was a pleasant experience, there were times when I waited months between assignments. Unfortunately with the economy as it is, and the fact that bills need to be paid, I had to move on to something a little more secure. The people at Manpower were good to work with.

Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Tottenham, ON – 8 April 2017
overall A great place to work. had to leave due to myself moving to Alliston.
a typical day at work for myself included walking in and signing in to front office.getting changed into my work stuff. then signing into time clock and waiting for bell to start work. then we would all go to the meeting area before starting to talk about quality problems from the day before and then we would all go to our work areas and wait to be told what we were running for our shift. then we would prep our work area and start work. we had three breaks throughout our 8 hour shifts. what i liked about working here was the structure and routine we all took part in
General Laborer (Former Employee) – Kingston, ON – 5 April 2017
They gave me close to full-time hours and treated me as an important employee for the short time I worked for them. I would recommend this job to any student looking for honest work during the summer months.
Journalier de soir (Former Employee) – St-Hubert, QC – 29 March 2017
Lors de mon embauche la Dame me dit c'est du temps plein 40 heures. Lors de mon premier quart après 4 heures de travail seulement le superviseur vient me voir et me dit qu'il doit envoyer des employés chez eux car il n'y a pas assez de travail. Une vrai farce. Le superviseur me dit qu'il n'as même pas assez d'heures pour lui... Bref, à éviter!
Collection Agent (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 17 March 2017
This was a long time ago, but I do believe manpower is one of the best temp agencies out there. I was employed for 18 months and got steady hours and benefits. Also some really great experience. If I needed to use a temp agency I would go back again. But not to ATCO Gas I would go to a different contract.
Staffing Specialist (Former Employee) – Moncton, NB – 15 March 2017
No two days are ever the same. With the large number of employees and customers you deal with on a day-to-day basis, you never know what to expect. That's not including all the new employees or customers you may develop that day.
