I worked at Kelly Services

Pros

They work hard to match you with a position you will be happy in.

The staffing supervisors are very personable and really take to heart your career goals and desired positions.

I was always paid much more than people from other staffing agencies with similar responsibilities.

Cons

The downsides of Kelly Services are the downsides of every staffing agency. You may be told that a position will last six months and then be let go in a few weeks (because the company decided they didn't need you). Some positions will be called "temp-to-perm" and then not go permanent.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

No advice, this is a great company. If you are going to work for a temp agency, choose Kelly Services. I worked for them three summers in college and then 2 years after college.

    I worked at Kelly Services

    Pros

    You can choose your schedule and the jobs you want to take.

    Cons

    At least at the Baltimore office, the people running the show seem a little flaky and not at all on top of things. They've given me incorrect information on how to submit my hours, no communication on my job performance, and wear rubber flipflops in the office. Also, the pay kinda sucks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create better connections with your employees. Touch base. Make them feel like they have a professional relationship with you, not that they're interchangeable goods.
