    Pros

    Virtual office- paid weekly, hours were pretty standard but sometimes asked to work rather late in crunch times (as in til 830pm), management was compassionate for most part but should have been harsher with the client. The client did not have an effective process and were not open to suggestions

    Cons

    Temporary contracts that can end without any warning. Lazy coworkers that were never available and never seemed to be chastised for it. Unreasonable numbers which was not Kelly's fault but the client's.

    Advice to Management

    More stringent hiring process, less favoritism, be more demanding with the client when they are being unreasonable

    Pros

    Many opportunities to improve on current systems, huge database to recruit candidates. Well-known name, still opportunity to increase brand awareness

    Antiquated systems, very little cross-selling between divisions, time intensive data entry, invasive Corporate HQ

    Advice to Management

    Treat people like adults, and they will act in kind.

    Pros

    They pay on time.

    Cons

    There isn't much to say. Turn in a time card, get paid - you are on your own. There isn't much contact with Kelly Services except for maybe a light lunch once a year (on some jobs).
