I worked at Kelly Services as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

Kelly services for at least my technical placement is just basically an HR company. And in that regard they are excellent. No problems with paperwork or anything. I think they even have a few holidays paid (with contract work you don't necessarily get paid if your host company is off that day).

Other coworkers from other contracting houses and always had many complaints. I experienced none of them.

Cons

You don't work for the company you work for. They collect their cut and you don't talk unless there are problems (payroll, benefit questions, your contract, etc)

    I worked at Kelly Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    We gained some technical knowledge.

    Cons

    We were not eligible for any benefits. We could not use the IBM fitness facility. We were scheduled down to the second on breaks, lunches and arrivals. If you went to the restroom, the time was deducted from your breaks. Your schedule could change abruptly. The manager was an IBM employee and was rarely on site. Pay $10.25 per hr didn't go up with performance. Dead end job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to retain employees, treat them like people who matter. Also offer better pay and at least health insurance.
