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

    Pros

    Being a staffing company, there are many options for employment. Some are work at home some require you to go in the office. The office environment is friendly and there are a variety of schedules

    Cons

    Some employees don't have that proper work- life balance and are not happy in the long run, which after a while leads to unhappy employees

    I worked at Kelly Services as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The management was nice and easy to work with--I was assigned to a position within a day of going in to meet with my coordinator. The offices I was assigned to had been vetted and were safe, inviting places to be, even if the work wasn't particularly challenging.

    Cons

    Switching from job to job can be tough sometimes, as well as the occasional periods of unemployment that happen when there aren't temp jobs available.

    I have been working at Kelly Services full-time

    Pros

    Kelly is a great company with tons of opportunity and great people. Relationships are key and can either make or break you. Integrity is of utmost importance.

    Cons

    Solid strategy, but challenging to execute. Management accountability is lacking and it is slow to change.

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

    Pros

    I was paid weekly; the staff is friendly and kind; they are helpful even with online situations. I like their website because you can access your pay info.

    Cons

    I have not had an assignment with them since 2010; I wish I could find something with them now. I have been putting in apps for positions through them but I have not received any calls yet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are an outstanding company; I do not understand why assignments are not coming through more, and with more pay.

    Cons

    -Searching the Knowledge Base for articles is difficult.
    -If a second adviser doesn't take over the call properly and a negative review comes in, it counts against you.
    -You can't refute a negative review. Once it is in your stats, it is yours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    --Offering some benefits like, paid time off, would be wonderful despite Kelly being a Temp Service. Most people stay long term.

    I worked at Kelly Services as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    I found that Kelly Services was very easy to discuss future plans with and they were very helpful in arranging employment for me after my relocation. I went for an initial interview and within days was employed as a temp to hire. I then was able to go to a permanent position with the company within 30 days after my 90 day probation period.

    Cons

    I have no cons regarding this company. They helped me tremendously and would go through them again if the chance were to arise.
