    I worked at Kelly Services

    Pros

    Advanced to better temp positions with each new contract. Increased pay quickly. At the time, they offered benefits after 90 days. I tarted out as a mail room clerk and with in 16 months I doubled my pay and was a contract project coordinator. Always worked for large, well known corporate companies. You can take time off easily between jobs and its not a problem.

    Cons

    Had to always be looking for your next contract ie. your next job with Kelly. Kelly supervisors often treat you like you are child and a bother, they tend to side with the client not the Kelly Temp employee no matter what. Hard to advance into Kelly beyond being a temp employee

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mentor your employee, help them find the next contract, give your employee more credit as professionals even if they may be just out of college or have little professional experience.
