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.
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
Found work for me quickly, the job site however felt sexist and the hours were low/none exsistent unless they needed you to fill for someone.
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) – Barrie, Ont. – 28 July 2014
Manpower got me a job quickly, but the hours were none existent after my first two weeks or so, and even then the only hours I would get is from getting called in to fill for someone about 10mins before work would start. The work place felt sexist, men would barely get any hours, and the factory would rather hire a lady off the street, then a guy that was working there for 2 years or so. I enjoyed the people I worked with, management was aweful to try and talk to, they didn't care about the employees well being.
free lunches about once a month
no gaurentee on hours, or consistent schedule, management was aweful.
Am giving Manpower Canada an average rating for helping their staff.
Data Operator (Current Employee) – Mississauga – 4 April 2013
Everyday were given a schedule of what to do, I learned new knowledge from time to time. I should say that the management am with is just an avarege style. The hardest part of my job is to work with my co-workers attitude in connection with the job application. Over all my co-workers are helpful. The most enjoyable part of the job is when you meet your expectation and the teams expectation.

Temp Agent (Current Employee) – Moncton – 21 February 2013
They do there best to find work but you can go months at a time to only work maybe a week and when they find nothing they throw you towards Speilos production line work and the management at Speilo treats you with disrespect and would terminate your contract if you sneezed the wrong way and once that happens manpower doesnt seem to go out of there way to find you work. I will say pay was descent and my agent lead manager was helpful within her power of course.
Working with good people,team work makes a job easier.
Construction Labourer- fencing and roofing (Current Employee) – Edmonton,AB – 21 May 2013
I did enjoy most of my time when I used to work at Rojal Glenora Club our Staff had great people,Hardworking individuals,co operating with each other and serving our costomers to the best of our ability.I really never had the hardest part but there were times that sometimes the management called us unexpected to come work during our vacation but it was all fun.
Picking & Packaging (Former Employee) – North York, ON – 17 July 2012
A typical day at work was fine. The management was great and helpful. I learned how to acheive the given target at work with speed & quality. My co-workers were very helpful and understanding.the hardest part of the job was lifting heavy boxes alone without anybodies help. The most enjoyable part of the job was the amount of regular hours.
A typical day as did my responsibilities at work varied every single time I had a position because I worked as temporary employee. So where I worked would differ with each assignment. Management also differed with each assignment as did the co-workers, and what a typical day was. It just depended on what the client needed. What I learned was how to be incredibly flexible, go with the flow, learn how to adjust to new and different environments.
General Labourer (Former Employee) – Brockville, ON – 7 May 2012
Throughout the duration of my employment with Manpower, I worked at several different companies. I enjoyed the diversity of not only working in a variety of companies, but working in various different positions within those companies.
Although the availability of work was often unreliable, I greatly value the experience and the skills I was able to acquire while working for this agency.
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.
