    I have been working at Kelly Services as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Working with Kelly Services affords me the opportunity to set my own hours and days to work. My staffing recruiter keeps me in mind when assignments come up that she knows I'm qualified for and would enjoy working. This is a great staffing service if you're looking for quality, individual care, and intelligent people to work with.

    Cons

    Would enjoy working more seminars or a long term part time assignment.

    Pros

    Pay is higher than minimum wage.
    You get benefits even though it is a seasonal job.
    Higher pay if you're bilingual.
    If you do good, you can get really far.
    Great communication between company and employee.
    Organized system.
    Great for gaining skills and experience that will serve you later on for other jobs.

    Cons

    You start off as a contractor for the companies they get employees for. If you do not do your best, expect to be there only a couple months.
