Typical agency call centre work, no rights, no sick pay. Expectation is high for staff to perform, plenty of training given but some managers/coaches not really cut out for the job role. Potential to earn good money with bonuses
Pros
Potential earning with bonus
Cons
No employee rights, 0 hours contracts

A really bad place to work. My advice, do not apply for jobs with manpower. Management are unprofessional, if you arent part of a clique then they will find any reason to fire you.

Agency don't have a clue what they are doing. Full of fake promises and sack anyone at any opportunity then walk you out the building like you've committed a crime when in fact you've only had a couple days of ill. Terrible human beings that run there Dundee office anyway!!

If you are on a Manpower contract, watch your back. The wages are shocking you can be sitting next to someone on a Bt contract on the double the wages. Bt staff tend to work 8-8 Monday to Friday. Whereas Manpower will be 7-11 Monday to Saturday. Management are brown nosed youngsters with no idea how to look after there team fairly. If your face doesn't fit they will find anything they can use against you with useless union staff. Money grabbing manpower only off a PBA contract, with in effect means you lose your right to equal wages with BT contracted staff, I could go . Just AVOID
Pros
none
Cons
too many to mention

I found work through manpower in BT (as their client) in Dundee the company pays the minimum wage for a highly technical job, where you are expexted to exceed. constant evaluation on your performance made all of my collegues uneasy and insecure, disciplinaries are in the order of the day. None of us where told that the hours we were required to work are from 8am to 11pm until after the 6 week training period.... there are too many things to write on here, what a joke of a company
Pros
met very interesting people
Cons
everything else

The company I worked for (Royal Mail) were very reliable and friendly. Manpower on the other hand were very unhelpful and have a tendency to speak down to people that ask questions.

Manpower are poorly managed. Very unfair pay rates between BT staff and Manpower staff within the centre. Someone on a BT contract could be doing the same role as yourself, they would be on a rate of around £8-£10, while a manpower employee would be on £6.20/£6.50.
Pros
weekly pay
Cons
unfair pay rates, badly managed.

terrible experience with manpower, didnt know who to get clarity on training. BT very daunting, very poor company and have the cheek to ad for minimum wage. Job security is awful too, constant pressure even though is inbound calls

Taking calls from customers and helping them with their problem. Within this role I learned how to perform an office based job. Management are focused on statistics within this company. Co-workers were pleasant enough but their was a noticeable difference between permanent staff and agency staff. The hardest part of this role was dealing with abusive customers. The most enjoyable part of this role was the interaction between fellow agency staff.
Pros
Weekly pay
Cons
No job security and no sick pay

I was brought up to believe "if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all".My silence is deafening.
