    I worked at Kelly Scientific Resources full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Highly qualified and professional assistance with contract placement. E-mail is the best way to contact workers.

    Cons

    They are extremely busy and it can be a challenge to contact them via the telephone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great teamwork.

    No problems and a good option for those looking to try out government work.

    I have been working at Kelly Scientific Resources

    Pros

    Because it is so difficult to become an FTE (full time employee) with the government, many people opt for contract agencies like Kelly. I've been with them for a year-and-a-half now and have no complaints. It's a good option for people wanting to get their foot in the door of the federal government and I've had absolutely no problems during my time here. Although I am employed by Kelly, I'm assigned to a federal agency where I essentially report to my government supervisor as I would in any other job. It's a pretty painless process and I have no complaints.

    Cons

    It's hard to find any real negatives to working here. I've never really run into a problem in my workplace so I haven't needed to call on them for anything aside from basic human resource issues. I guess I would like to see better (read: more flexible) health insurance options (you get to choose from three) but everything is costly these days and I know I still have it better than colleagues who work with different contracting agencies.

    Kelly is a good firm to work for in a job, but not for a career.

    I worked at Kelly Scientific Resources full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Kelly has broad resources to find jobs in the science field. A majority of the job search can occur online.

    Cons

    My job search was almost entirely online so I didn't have the option for an in-person consultation. I found the job via Kelly's online search engine- I didn't have help from a recruiter nor did I have the option to contact one

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please provide more staff to meet with job seekers in person

    I worked at Kelly Scientific Resources as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    I performed organizational duties as a research and development lab assistant in the Food Division at Oregon Freeze Dry, Inc. It was a relaxing environment to work in and there was not too much stress. The employer was friendly and treated me with respect. I learned a lot from my coworkers and the tasks I performed.

    Cons

    The pay was minimum wage. However, it was a great temp-to-hire job in the end. The position was not beneath me so if you are looking for a quick and easy temp work, Kelly Scientific Resources would be the place.

    Pros

    The employees were excited and gave me a lot of attention when placing me as a temp at GE Healthcare.

    Cons

    It was contract work and had to end after 1 and a half years. But it was very worthwhile for my growth.

    I have been working at Kelly Scientific Resources

    Pros

    They had a better than average starting salary and commission was great. I thought they paid very well for entry level. Corporate office management were always involved and a pleasure to work for, and kept us up to date with company changes.

    Cons

    Very small office and my direct manager was not supportive or encouraging.
