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.
Recruit for office position (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 26 May 2016
I have 1 word for this agency. Unprofessional.
Dealing with this company has been a hassle that is not worth it. Reaching the recruiter that gave me a call has been impossible. I attempted 5 calls and every time the recruit was "busy" and I was told to call back in 20 minutes. Which the recruit was also busy 20 minutes later.
After 4 hours attempting to reach the recruiter I left my callback number with the receptionist. I understand that people can be busy, but still no call back after 1 week.
If this recruiter is not decent enough to give a call back. It is not worth your time.
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, NB – 19 May 2016
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.
Manpower has access to jobs that I cannot access
They were temporary assignments with no real possibility for full time positions

Associate (Current Employee) – Barrie, ON – 28 March 2016
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.
you make the same amount of money as someone whom has been there 15 years
Temporary Agent (Former Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 8 March 2016
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.
Recruiter (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 7 March 2016
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.
Constant learning abilities to those who pay attention
Gas Technician (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 30 January 2016
enjoyed working by myself. driving long distances. i learn how to work on a fast pace management wise was fair my co-workers were hard workers even though most of them did not make it untill the end. hardest part of the job personally to me comes from driving 100 km/h when travelling far.
Recruiter/Co-Op Student (Former Employee) – North York, ON – 22 January 2016
I had a successful internship with Manpower and built great colleagues and friends. Which lead me to a brief term at the Nike Factory where I was an Inventory Specialist for a short time. It was a very interesting and new work experience.
Customer Service Duties (Former Employee) – Edmonton – 14 January 2016
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.
