    Amazing team, good management and development of staff. Felt really “at home” at work.

    Managers need to be aligned in their style. One in particular might have well used a sledge hammer.

    Keep up the good work. Overall one of the best companies I have worked for

    Pros

    Lovely people and the role itself gives you a fantastic feeling. They also have good benefits for Perm consultants and a great development scheme.

    Cons

    The training isn't up to scratch, they need more guidance for new starters especially if they don't have previous recruitment experience

    Advice to Management

    Have more structure to training so that new starters are set up for success

    I have been working at Manpower full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The way my Director and Senior Management Team are visible, available, motivating and positively challenging. The North is a great place to work.

    Cons

    Delivering low margin business that gets turned on and off and it’s killing our retail business, I can see it. We are now a Logistics business.

    Advice to Management

    Please help in moving this logistics business away from sales people. Keep on being visible and motivating.

    Pros

    Flexibility, great commission scheme on everything you bill, I love being able to work at home, a continuous training program, fantastic support from my manager, constantly evolving and growing with the times, the Directors are accessible and listen to you.

    Absolutely nothing. I’ve been in recruitment for 12 years and at Manpower for just over 3 and it’s the best company I’ve worked at. I would like to continue my career with them for the foreseeable future

    I have been working at Manpower full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexibility of working from home, commission on any billing you make. Systems relatively good compared to previous companies I have worked at.

    People too comfortable with basic salaries. No drive or passion. Managers not taking time to develop staff. Need to take more time to listen on the needs of staff.

    Focus on the development of staff and also change the training structure as there none available.

    Manpower - Understand your needs, great work / life balance, very flexible and understanding. They actually care and want what is best for you
