DESKSIDE SUPPORT TECHNICIAN (Former Employee), 100 Manpower Pl., Milwaukee, WI 53212 – August 11, 2014
Manpower was a wonderful working environment with lots of friendly people and I was a part of an excellent team. We went through several changes and often the culture shifted, however the overall experience was one I enjoyed.
Consultant/Assignment Employee (Former Employee), Memphis, TN – August 8, 2014
Pros: regular breaks
Cons: it wasn't where i wanted to be
At International Paper in Memphis, Tennessee: I reconciled open invoices in the Food Service Division. I learned that cleaning up old messes can be tedious. I was a temp worker, therefore, most people didn't even acknowledge my existence. No one was rude just busy. Knowing that I did not plan to be there any longer than I had to be made it hard to build – more... any lasting relationships with co-workers. I was brought in to clean up a big pile of over due invoices, and I was given the liberty to track down and research deliveries and claimed payments as well as contradicted contract terms. In the Global Supply chain department my assignment was not nearly as much fun. I performed data entry and reported compilations in the form of a box car report. – less
Good job to have when you want to learn something new.
General Laborer (Current Employee), Bakersfield, CA – August 7, 2014
Pros: good source of income when you don't have no money.
Cons: do not have consisted work for you that much.
I've learned a lot from this job, such as sandblasting, sanding, painting, a little machinery work etc. Everything that I've learn I can put on my resume. Management does a very good job on finding me work, and they always put me around people that love to work. There's no hardest part of the job, everything is pretty much easy to learn. Every moment – more... I'm at work is the most enjoyable part of the job. – less

Production Worker (Former Employee), Anacortes, WA – August 5, 2014
Pros: paid weekly
Cons: poor communication, unprofessionalism
I have been employed by Manpower since November 2013. Thus far I have worked on two different assignments (Trident Seafoods and IDEX) and both seemed to have had issues with Manpower due to lack of communication.
Also, just to gain any real benefits while working with Manpower, you would have to have been employed for about a year. The only nice part – more... was getting paid weekly. – less

Various Clerical (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PA – August 5, 2014
Pros: flexibility, part time employment, temporary assignments
Cons: payroll, a shortage with employment assignments
Working for Manpower on different assignments was interesting because there were choices. A person could choose to work when and where they wanted to work and for a long or short term. I received a lot of my skills while working for Manpower and I've worked for them in the past. There was nothing hard about any of the jobs they assigned me to and it – more... was an enjoyable learning and working experience. – less
Clerk (Former Employee), Carrollton, TX – August 5, 2014
It was a temp agency, Manpower is one of the best though. I did learn a few things along the way and did a few short term odd jobs though manpower, but mostly it was learning the ropes while on assignment.
