Recruiter in Milwaukee, Wisconsin said: What you are hearing is the angry people who have not received positions through Manpower. The people who are working do not have time to be on these boards posting their positive comments...
it's humurous the way some people think but people get naturally bitter when they are rejected.
I'm sorry but that's wrong. I have a position working at a great employer, but unfortunately through Manpower. Manpower's own employees are either rude or not the sharpest crayons in the box, and I'm none too impressed by some of the people they hire to fill positions either.
The rep at the local Manpower office almost made me fail my drug test because she gave me a huge glass of water and told me to drink it before putting in the oral swab. Turns out, you're not supposed to eat or drink for 15 mins before you take the test, and she knew that. The other employee there asked her why she gave me a glass of water and she had nothing to say. I still passed anyway.
She was also very rude and told me that there was "No chance" that I would get the position, even though I was the only person who applied for the position and was personally recommended to be hired for the position by head of the department at the employer.
They also put down the wrong school district code on my paperwork and withheld money when the tax rate for my district is 0.00% (they don't have income tax). They are refusing to refund it and told me I have to file with the state to get it back, already ran into this with my parent's accountant putting the wrong district code on their tax forms, you can't get it back becuase you can't file for a district you don't live in...
And the best part, surprise! my check didn't show up this week. I love not getting paid! (The one good thing I will say about manpower is that they pay weekly, which is nice)
