Staff Accountant (Former Employee), Livonia, MI – July 25, 2014
Pros: money was what i asked for.job gave me the experience i was looking to get.
Cons: my agent wasn't very helpful or personable
I've been trying to get back into the bookkeeping end of administrative work for years and Manpower was able to get me the experience that I want to have on my resume.Altough, I think that had more to do with me being " in the right place at the right time" than anything to do with my agent at Manpower.My agent there was just flat out lazy.Anytime I – more... had to call/email him, I would get the impression that I was really putting him out.So, I avoided contacting him unless I had too, and the few times that I did, he sounded aggravated and could be very condescending.There were a couple of other people at the agency that treated me the same way.It was a strange experience...I've worked with temp agencies in the past and have never run into this before. However, not everyone at Manpower was like that. Manpower does get some pretty good opportunities & I'm not trying to discourage people from working with them.I just want other jobseekers to be aware that if you are interested in an assignment with M.P., you really need to stay on them to get you what you need (payroll PIN #'s etc) or they might not get it to you in a timely fashion or at all! – less

I have learn multiple things from working with manpower. The manager and co-worker was so helpful and patience. once I got the hang of the job it became very easy. I enjoy meeting new people daily. the hardest part of the job is when my assignment is over.

Independent Contractor (Former Employee), Portland, OR – July 21, 2014
I learned how to be hooked to a phone line all day and make it work. The people that worked at the call center were friendly and helpful. The people who called in were very interesting and they traveled to interesting places. I worked the swing shift from 1pm until 10pm and I really liked it.
assembler and packaging (Former Employee), Madison, IN – July 21, 2014
Pros: fast employment
Cons: companies abuse this service. keeping manpower people temps.
Great place if in real need of a job fast. Temporary work. Companies abuse this service. They keep temps so as not to pay benefits. Manpower needs to makes sure that temps are hired or move them on to another job.

Forklift Operator and Corrugation Machine Operator (Former Employee), El Paso, TX – July 16, 2014
Pros: consistant jobs available. great staff that will work to find a job for the associates.
Cons: no job is guaranteed and can be laid off at any moment.
I worked at a few assignments with Manpower. If I was ever laid off from an assignment, I was assigned a new job within two weeks. I've learned a lot of different skills and operating systems used in the industrial industry. The best part of the assignments I was given is the fellow associates. Comradery and team work amongst associates is a necessity – more... in a successful work environment. – less
