    Manpower India from the dumps and now back into the dumps!! :-(

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Mumbai

    ProsTill June 2008,
    the most cohesive and performance oriented teams in the country (600+) consultants
    Highly Aspiration Team and learned superiors to lead the business.

    ConsPost 2008,
    The Most destructing management ever - the employee strength fell from 150 to 20 in 1.5 yrs (till 2010) in Mumbai.
    New Management that came in between 2007 to 2009 was highly revenue oriented as if one is selling sim cards - the dynamics of human capital business could never be understood

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease get back all your old people and come back with a punch! The company in India had the best team ever.

     

    Nice company

    Agent Assistant (Former Employee) Beijing, Beijing (China)

    ProsThe working environment is nice. The employees are most young and full of enthusiasm. The system is perfect, which could support the cold calls.

    ConsThe supervisors are different each day. At the first time, cold calls are necessary, which makes people lack of experience feel embarrassed.

    Great work environment!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsManpowerGroup Solutions is best company I've worked for in the staffing industry. I love that everyone understands the importance of recruiting and what recruiters have to deal with on a daily basis. Management is very supportive and doesn't micromanage.

    ConsThe benefits department is the worst I've ever dealt with. Everyone is clueless, can't answer simple questions, and it takes forever to resolve issues. Compensation is very low, and Manpower doesn't take one's geographic location into consideration regarding salary.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt shouldn't be so difficult to receive answers regarding benefits. Employees shouldn't have to jump through hoops to receive answers to simple questions regarding benefits. Regarding compensation, Manpower also should take into consideration that the cost of living varies in different parts of the USA.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good- American Cancer Society

    Constituent Representative Specialist (Current Employee) East Lansing, MI (US)

    ProsManpower is a local staffing service that offers different types of job opportunities.
    In my experience working for them at American Cancer Society they have been very flexible with scheduling.
    The pay is at least above minimum wage and bonuses are available. Also, work parties.

    ConsThe supervisors at ACS have somewhat lost their touch when it comes to helping CRS agents truly better their performance so they can succeed. I also feel that it's become harder to succeed at ACS in general because telemarketing seems to be a dying business.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe actual Manpower managers are great but again the ACS supervisors could use a tune up

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
