    Pros

    Kelly Services contracts with a number of companies and offers a way to get your foot in the door if you can find a job with them that is in line with your career goals. Their website is a great resource for looking for a diverse set of opportunities. The staff at the place I worked did a fairly good job of staying professional, and remedying a problem with my pay when it came up. The staff at Kelly were fairly understanding.

    Cons

    Because Kelly Services offers temporary employment, benefits are very hard to come by; and you can be laid off if the unit they are attached to is downsizing/not in need of man power. The two biggest cons for working for Kelly are the pay and the lack of a reference. You can probably find a better job, but if you need one real bad and are in a bind, Kelly Services foots the bill, but you should be under no illusion, finding a better paying job in the mean while is an absolute must. Also beware of offending other employees even if you are not talking to them, you could end up with a warning.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lock employees in to an agreement longer than 4-6 months at such low pay rates, especially when you don't offer employees a reference, it makes no sense for someone to work a year+ at a temp agency and get no reference from it.
