  1. Enjoyed my time with my Supervisor, but the Manager did not like people taking time off. Low pay

    I have been working at Kelly Services

    Pros

    I liked my co-workers, area of work, Troy Michigan, room for advancement if you network. Low management levels were great.

    Cons

    Mid management was not good, very low pay. Other companies will pay a lot more for the same years of experience. Not great work life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to please the customer so much, while taking advantage of employees. Allow employees to have better work life balance

    I worked at Kelly Services

    Pros

    They pay on time.

    Cons

    There isn't much to say. Turn in a time card, get paid - you are on your own. There isn't much contact with Kelly Services except for maybe a light lunch once a year (on some jobs).
