Project Coordinator (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – April 17, 2016
I worked for Manpower and the employer decided they did not like the way I looked. Came to me and told me I was being replaced by someone younger. Manpower done absolutely nothing. I am presently out of work now. I call Manpower every morning and report I am available for work and they have not supplied me with anything. They never even acknowledged that I worked on the assignment for 5 years straight with only 3 days off. Today it has been 3 months off work. I apply online to a Manpower and other companies. One of the other comments said they will call when you are on your way out the door and tell you that you are no longer needed is so true.
Executive Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Skokie, IL – April 12, 2016
Fast paced and controlled chaos. I learned about the state requirement for special education. I learned scheduling multiple directors schedules and travel. Scheduling 230 students IEP and EDC's...re-evaluations and annual reviews. The most challenging part of my job was coordinating a students care team for his or her annual review or 3 year re-evaluation, The most rewarding part of my job was watching the students transition from one phase of special education to the next.
I was covering for someone that was out sick. My duties were to prepare excel worksheets, scan papers for CPA, and filed papers. I learned how to use a scanner (very old fashioned) and basic concept of quickbooks. Management was very busy and didn't have much impact on their workers. The hardest part of the job was filing out the time sheets. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to order lunch with other workers.
small company, ability to order lunch with other people, nice location
Administrative support positions (Former Employee) – New London, CT 06320 – April 8, 2016
Manpower's cancellation of assignment was poor. They would call on the phone as you were walking out the door and say the client didn't need you anymore. Manpower was fairly consistent with continuous job placement. There was never much promise in an assignment turning into a permanent position.
Dumper (Former Employee) – Dothan, AL – April 7, 2016
I was sent to Conagra Foods in Dothan which was great. I usually was at the back of a big roaster pushing product through and conveyer belt. Many co-workers were very helping and others no so much being that I mostly worked with other temporary workers. The supervisor of Manpower workers at the time was very uptight about a lot. Anything Conagra supervisors told us was ok to do, she would fire people for doing and it could have been the smallest thing. The hardest part of the job was just not knowing really what you will be doing the next day because you are filling spots for people who are not coming in the next day or have been fired. The most enjoyable part of the job was really just doing what i had to do which was easy, because I was by myself for 8-12 hours a day.
Getting paid every week with hours that you would be able to hold out until next pay period.
Short breaks, rude supervisors and not many helping co-workers.
