Always got rave reviews from the clients I worked for so no complaints
Disassembling Technician (Former Employee) – Herndon, VA – October 5, 2016
A typical day varied. I worked at a bunch of companies. But I could tell you the environments were extremely adherent to safety. I enjoyed the work. And the people at all the assignments I went to were great which made the days easier no matter what the job was. Hard part I guess would be is adjusting to new environments and keeping up with the pace. But that was part of the fun for me.
As far as advancement, not quite sure exactly, how to put it, but the companies will hire if you do your job.
It kept me consistently working for the past 3 years, the companies I worked for had some great people
Temp (Former Employee) – Maine, ME – October 4, 2016
Jobs were exactly 90 days, but it was a temp agency so that's to be expected. Employers would often say if you do well enough you might get hired but you are still only contracted for 90 days through the agency. Other than that the pay was slightly above average in most positions, one or two were well above average. The schedule was usually nice. Monday through Friday mostly. But after about a year and a half the company took longer and longer between assignments so I left the agency. Overall it's a great company for a short term fix.
The agency finds positions that match yoir skills and interest, varity of work
• Support high-volume staffing of non-exempt associates for the stores during peak seasons
Recruiter, (Compliance Specialist) (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – October 13, 2016

Exciting temporary position with great management and coworkers
SMT Support (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – September 26, 2016
I was on a temporary assignment with a great company. My duties were to assist the SMT (surface mount technology). I would receive in the tape and reels for inventory, count remaining components left on the reel and then assign them to a location in inventory. I would also change out feeders with new reels so that production could continue. Everyone I worked with was wonderful and very helpful. Management was great. Never an issue with being able to go in and talk to them, what ever the subject may be.
I continuously learned new thing daily and they always made me feel apart of the team
I knew going in that this was just a temporary assignment
Alcon Production Technician (Former Employee) – ALCON Huntington, WV – September 19, 2016
Manpower , like everyone else, does what it can with limited resources. For older workers who may have some physical limitations, there are very few selections for jobs at Manpower. But, there's always ALCON, which seems to be Manpower's biggest tri-state area client. ALCON produces interocular lenses and employs hundreds of people, many through Manpower until they either have their assignments changed or get hired by ALCON.
Manpower has its hands tied tightly by the federal government especially where regulations on insurance are involved. Pay strict attention to getting forms turned in on time, otherwise, things may happen with your paycheck you may not be too happy with.
ManPower was a good place to work for the supervisors where very caring.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Irving, TX – October 21, 2016
A typical work day was to arrive 30 minutes early to setup all systems on my computer. Read new updates and emails. Clock in 5 minutes and then turn begin making or receiving calls. The best part of the job was that you work with hundreds of employees but you also have space to be in small groups. I enjoyed helping customers meet their needs.
Temporary Data Entry Clerk (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – September 6, 2016
I've always liked Manpower. I got my last job that lasted for 8 years with them. When I lost my job, I went back to them but it just seemed different to me.
I had recruiters that cared about my work last time. This time, I felt like that I was just a number. I don't know if that is accurate and I'm sure every one is different but I felt like every one is in a competition over there now when it was about the people before.
find a job pretty fast
it's usually a job that will last you a month or two
Administrative, Human Resources (Former Employee) – Tomah, WI – September 6, 2016
Working for Manpower is awesome if you are trying to attain a manual labor position. If you are trying to find permanent placement in a office position, don't count on it. However, if you are just looking for training and job experience in an office environment, you cannot beat the variety of office positions Manpower has to offer.
Variety, lots of work experience, friendly staff that is extremely helpful
Will mess up your taxes at the end of the year, Limited potential for permanent placement in a full time office position
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Anaheim, CA – October 3, 2016
very unprofessional so call on site mng and poor communication skill in the payroll" Dept " to the point that no one can figure things out you'll see major delay on your first couple paycheck and you better keep and take picture of your time records if you want to get pay cause they don't to the point that I had to enforce and demand my pay with the board of labor commissioner office and then got fire for doing that good luck!
Recruiter (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – September 29, 2016
As a Recruiter there is absolutely no job security. Even more so as a Virtual Recruiter. Also there is a month or more wait in between contracts with them once a contract ends. Benefits are horrible as a Virtual Recruiter. You are usually required to work more than the 40 hour work week and all phone calls made on your personal work phone are monitored and recorded. High micro-managing, high work load and very metrics driven. Work/life balance is horrible even as a Virtual Recruiter and there are multiple recruiters working the same roles at different pay ranges and recent college graduates supervising Senior Recruiters in Senior Management roles.
High work loads, all calls are monitored and recorded and very bad benefits
While working for Manpower the Manager was very nice and involved. He checked on us regularly, didn't treat the temporaries as such and I really appreciated that. The inspection job was pretty cool i must say, just to know that I'm helping save lives kept me going. The coworkers and managers worked together really well felt as if we were all family.
It was overall a great experience. When I needed a job and steady income they were a big help. As I began to work and recommendations from the companies and from coworkers began to pour in they moved me to the front of the line for jobs and kept me working. I have no issues, however I have plenty of praise for the business.
They are always appreciative of hard working employees, and make sure that you are taken care of in between jobs
There is a ceiling on what the employees can earn, and the payment process can sometimes be fickle, But they stick with you until you get your money, and do not waiver in their efforts are successful in taking care of their employees.
Computer Operator/General Office worker (Current Employee) – Little Rock, AR – September 14, 2016
I have nothing but great things to say in reference to Manpower. I have been assigned to the very best employers in Little Rock, in the late 1990z and Early 2000z, this was the company to be a part of. Great places; Alltel, BlueCross/BlueShield, Staley Electric, Fidelity Informations Systems, Att,etc.
Everything was great
I havent had an assignment in years, but still signed up.
Machine Operator/Assembler (Former Employee) – Kalamazoo, MI – August 20, 2016
The company i worked for was in bid for contract the manpower associate did not verify my background for company hire only temporary placement as needed for the company. i worked 6 months and 3 of orientation to have my background check comeback as not meeting company requirments the work was decent and managment was happy to have a dedicated worker. 80+ optional a week. Family knit enviorment but the comunication was terible between coworkers and people were worried about the plant closing.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – York, PA – September 16, 2016
it is a agency that only had one job available to me to medical assistant and it was a contract deal prn for a few months. I was able to learn more and extend my learning experience in the place I was put in. but only having one place for contract for a medical assistant, well I would say that they need to pick up more clients so work can continue to be established by the people hey hire.

• Handling of VM's • Managing Active Directory Installing OS/application on VM's and Servers. Technical support to the end users for their VM's, Network troubleshooting. • VPN Creating an account i learned different type of application on how to use/support them. Co-workers are friendly hardest part of the job is solving problem you don't usually encounter. enjoyable part of the job is you will learn a lot on being an system administrator.
Assembler (Former Employee) – Saugerties, NY – September 16, 2016
I absolutely fell in love with this job, because the co-workers and my supervisor were amazing and willing to accommodate to my limitations. I would almost never work on the same project every week. I would be constantly prepping the body parts for the CPR manikin one week and then I would be prepping parts for a rescue manikin with weight for another and then I would prep kits for whatever manikin it's for.
Data Entry Clerk (Former Employee) – Monroe, LA – September 16, 2016
A typical day under Manpower's employment was confusing. Field agents never showed to job sites unless there was a major problem. However, I did learn how to update loans. My co workers were generally into mischief because management wasn't around. The hardest part of the job is the lack of communication. The most enjoyable part of the job was pay day and occasional adventures.
File Clerk/Data Entry (Former Employee) – OKC, OK – August 11, 2016
I truly appreciate the experience and new work environment at Novad Mortgage. I learned a lot about mortgages, deeds, and subordinate notes. Dealing with original documents. Management and co- workers where very warming, we work as a team and got things done as a team. The hardest part of my job was when our work area changed location. We had hundred of boxes stacked to the ceiling filled with original documents. Therefore we had to move, climb and re-sort all files, but it was ok we were away form our desk a lot because of the task. The labor wasn't a problem, because we worked as a team to get the job done
Technical support line (Former Employee) – Lisbon – August 9, 2016
In Galpon's support line basicaly the job was about answering calls from angry costumer's, for reading comunication, and give information about the service and about the invoicing. With this I learned to maintain calm in tough and stressfull situations with the help of the manager's and colleagues, i also learned how to understand the electricity and natural gas bills. The hardest part was definitely the angry costumer's and the great amount of stress that situations caused. The most enjoyable part was the colleagues (mostly in difficult times were really helpfull) and the flexibility of this job.
Good Colleagues and good flexibility with the study's
