Absolutely no support from management, never able to get hold of a staff member when you need them, emails not replied to, agency staff pass the buck when there is issues and never admit their mistakes when it comes to pay and leave you waiting saying its your own fault when you submit timesheets EXACTLY as you do every week, when you notify them of a mistake, they say it's your fault as you didn't let them know but they don't answer phones or emails to tell them.When you have an issue with a company, They always stick up for the company no matter how hard you have worked previously, how good your passed record is makes no difference.
Pros
Usually over nmw, can choose if you want to work or not.
Cons
No management support, pay often wrong

I have been employed by manpower two times to work for different financial companies and manpower has always been very kind. I like the way their staff treated me.

Manpower are a good company to work for pay was good and good comunication if you needed to speak to them. The job i had was with the royal mail cleaning warehouse toilets and office, working at purfleet, i was allocated 3 hours to clean the areas so it was nice stress free working experience. Lovely little job i only left there because i had another job offer closer to home.
Pros
just it was a pleasant stress free job and people were very friendly there and excellent pay!
Cons
just the travel to the site.

They did not pay most of us, avoided our calls. Very bad attitude when asked to fix the issues. Pay rate was amazing if we were actually paid worked a month before I was paid even a fraction of what i was owed. Would not recommend. The job itself was not bad easy get a lot of hours but no point working if you aren’t getting paid !!!
Pros
Decent work. If there was any
Cons
Everything

The job itself was great and the shifts where flexible enough.The wages were good- if you actually got paid! So so many people, including myself, weren't paid properly or at all. Nobody in the MK Manpower office seems to care either!!You are basically treated as a nuisance if you have to get in touch with them because of their incompetence. They will do their best to avoid you at all costs, no-one replies to emails or picks up the phone.My advice: JUST DON'T!!!
Pros
Flexible hours
Cons
It's Manpower

Since starting at my job, Man Power have been a total shambles. Me and my whole training group had problems with them. We submitted all relevant information when applying for the job but then continued to contact us again and again asking for the same information which they already had. They also managed to get our pay wrong and continue to fail after starting the job months ago. Never again will I go for a job through them.

Working as a temporary agent with the client New Day was most unpleasant experience. Management were cliquey, challenging. The workplace culture I realised was not a good fit for me. Learning systems required ample time, which was not given. The staff restaurant was the most enjoyable part of this job, that and leaving at the end of the day.
Pros
Staff restaurant

I embarrassed my experience with Manpower,as long as you turn up for every shift on time and don’t take any time off you will be ok.It isn’t for everyone but the money is good.
Pros
Good money
Cons
Very rigid, don’t be late and don’t be sick

The hose pipe company is an absolute nightmare, the man in charge with training there is sooo RUDE!!!! He is a properly grown up bully. Only gives bad feedback, so if he doesn't speak to you, your are assuming you are doing the right thing. Always moaning about you and all his other colleagues. He thinks he is the best and know everything,and the rest are rubbish. Wouldn't recommend to work in such environment everyday.
Pros
Good shifts
Cons
Not friendly environment
