Pros

Short wait for employment, ok pay, average health insurance.

Cons

You must wait six months for your first holiday to be paid as a contractor. No matching 401K, No vacation or sick time. They make promises that you MIGHT be hire on later but don't back it up to several employees in Boulder, Colorado at Covidien. Long term contract does not always mean long term. A two year contract can be only 15 months. Their bonus only works on full calander time not how long you been there. It is like Daily work - daily pay except you don't have to ride in a back of a truck to get to your job site.

Advice to Management

You are not a very good placement service for Temp-to-hire. Only users for cheap labor.

    Low pay

    Pros

    Kelly Services makes it possible for workers to get into some companies that are hiring low- skilled or even high-skilled workers, and this provides an opportunity for many individuals who need to learn new skills or improve on their existing skills.

    Cons

    Their pay scale is very low. You may be working beside people from other employment agencies who are being paid up to $4 or more per hour than you are getting from Kelly, and when they do give a raise you can expect it to be in increments of $.25/hour over an extended period of time.

    Advice to Management

    Loved my manager! But she did not hold the purse strings.
