    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Kelly Services (Dothan, AL) in August 2015.

    Interview

    It was super simple, I called showing interest in becoming a substitute and a one on one interview was then set up for the following week. After the one on one interview, which was very simple and only had about 5 basic questions regarding child safety, I was instructed to have my fingerprints scanned as well as a substitute certificate. You have to pay for everything yourself so it's about $50 for prints and $30 for the certificate.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Kelly Services (Chicago, IL) in August 2015.

    Interview

    over the phone interview basic interview questions. I got the job the next day which was surprising to me because I didn't have an in person interview. It was a temporary position however they took about a month to complete the whole hiring process. I had to go take my drug test twice because they lost the first one. And this was the first ever job that asked for my old w-2s and pay stubs because they were unable to verify my previous employment. Very disorganized and unprofessional. All this for a temp position wasn't worth it.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Kelly Services (Troy, MI) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by Kelly's search firm via Email approximately five weeks after I applied online. I exchanged communication via email with the talent scout to up a time for a phone screen interview. The phone interview was set up pretty quickly by the search agency as I had the phone interview within three days of their reaching out to me via email. The talent scout was extremely professional and comfortable. She seemed genuine and smart. I was not selected based on my lack of recent placement firm experience versus having internal corporate recruiting experience.
