worked as customer service adviser for 10 years which then lead to being converted to BT. Manpower were always onsite back then which has changed recently this is a shame as the manpower staff don't have anyone to go to when needed.
BT promise the world but never delivery, its always just over the horizon. Manpower pay you pennies for your work and mess up pay constantly. Adding the two together makes a pretty poor job. Reliable and secure if you can keep a good work standard, but below average pay and no chances to move on in a career.
A typical contract was mainly directed at Social Services. Manpower had seen that I had already in the past worked in this environment so I suppose that gave me the edge on finding successful work assignments.
Typical day would involve general administration and liasing with local supervisory staff to your section.
I learnt to carry out duties as required by the team.
Management: typically left to handle necessary work with little supervision (if you can cope) and to ask if you needed further clarification. Typically supervisor would speak with you initially one to one to clarify what they required you to do.
Usually working in teams of at last 6 people in an open planned environment. Introduced to teams initially and you are expected to maintain a rapport with them as you work.
There was no hardest part to the job only enjoyable parts as people and work load balance was perfect for anyoneto cope with but would have preferred to have something more challenging to do most of the time.
