    Pros

    Hours, Pay and people. You get 10 hours a day so overtime pay is automatically included in check

    Cons

    5 points and your done, even if your one minute late

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you have a worker who comes in and buss there butts off to provide you with the best quality of product at a fast past, you should keep them around, everyone is gonna be late

    Pros

    They are very process-driven, and have an inevitable amount of resources and tools at your fingertips to aide in your success.

    Cons

    From what I've heard, other staffing companies pay significantly higher salaries.

    I have been working at Kelly Services part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The hours were flexible so you basically worked at your own leisure. The pay was also great. The pay period is every week.

    Cons

    The students sometimes have behavior issues so good classroom management skills are a must. The high paying schools are far and the low paying schools aren't worth it.

    Pros

    Was paid weekly I liked that. Online application made it easy to fill in hours.

    Cons

    I guess they had a policy with the company I worked at that prohibited them (The company Not kelly services) for talking about my performance at work. Making it difficult to get references

    I worked at Kelly Services full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I loved helping people not only find employment, but also to have them find their own resources to help them find their next job. The benefits were okay, I think a bit over priced. My trainer was awesome, and had given me the proper training and guidance that I would need to execute my job successfully!

    Cons

    My district manager, while he meant well did a whole lot of nothing. He was too busy working on 'personal' issues and spending their work time fixing them. This allowed him to push all of their work on to me. Furthermore, when there were issues at his level to be handle , he refused and had me work on them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cross train your District Managers! Make sure they have an understanding what a staffing supervisor is doing, including the computer programs that they use. While there are a lot of resources to utilize at Kelly, the number one should be your own boss!

    I have been working at Kelly Services as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    It has many features that you can use online instead of going to their office, online learning resources. The process to start working was quickly and was able to start a job quickly and pay check was on time.

    Cons

    Some of the office employees are a tad unprofessional, work is limited to warehouse jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to have more options of work from different fields and for the people from the offices be more interactive with the employees.

    Pros

    Always provided good jobs and competitive pay. The staff is very friendly. Non hostile work environment. Weekly pay. One of the best companies to work for.

    Cons

    This company is very strict with dress code which really is not a con. No benefits were offered at the time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For substitute teaching positions some subs have never worked with children and can't handle everything that goes with working with children
