    I have been working at Kelly Services full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Kelly Services is serious about work/life balance. Kelly continuously invests in tools to help its recruiters be successful. Kelly is 100% client focused and has the ability and initiative to conform to the clients needs.

    Cons

    Kelly does not offer YOY increases based on individual performance. Kelly's benefit package for its contractors needs improvement.

    I have been working at Kelly Services

    Pros

    They contacted me regarding the position, the hiring process was very smooth, enter weekly time is very easy, and it has been a very good position.

    Cons

    The position is temporary and there is no way to know when it will end.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Because Kelly Law is employing professionals, they should consider offering some type of benefits.

    Pros

    Support of Office Staff, constantly willing to help you find the right job, recognition of hard work, and repeated requests from some employers.

    Cons

    May have to go to work with a very short notice if someone else calls off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work and expand the clerical jobs.

    I worked at Kelly Services full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I typically received my paychecks on time and for the correct amount. They were generous and quick with travel arrangements (unlike for government employees).

    Cons

    During the government shutdown, they did not give their employees any information on compensation, unemployment, etc. They also provided not-great/expensive healthcare options. They tried to not pay me my 3rd year vacation-time despite my staying until my anniversary date.

    Former Employee - Entry Level IT Technician in Detroit, MI

    I worked at Kelly Services full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The staff is helpful and very nice to speak with; pleasant personalities. Staff is helpful whether you are on the phone with them or in person in the office. Great place to work for.

    Cons

    This may be because of the economy and no fault of the company - but not enough assignments for data entry, typing, clerical work. Need more entry level IT positions that last (longer than a month).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had an experience where a company wanted to speak to a (real live) person to verify my employment but was unable to. The reason being because of your automated system that you state you only use it. There are people that still like to have that human touch.
