    I have been working at Kelly Services full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    ive never been happier; level of management, both direct and overall from the top down, the processes make sense, compliant yet not cumbersome. attitude of employees and management is positive and there is a balance between life and work

    Cons

    con would be to allow more vacation and sick leave, but dosen't everyone need this!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you goes a long way, invest in your team, every once in a ask what they need to get the job done more efficiently to work smarter not harder

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

    Pros

    I loved helping people not only find employment, but also to have them find their own resources to help them find their next job. The benefits were okay, I think a bit over priced. My trainer was awesome, and had given me the proper training and guidance that I would need to execute my job successfully!

    Cons

    My district manager, while he meant well did a whole lot of nothing. He was too busy working on 'personal' issues and spending their work time fixing them. This allowed him to push all of their work on to me. Furthermore, when there were issues at his level to be handle , he refused and had me work on them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cross train your District Managers! Make sure they have an understanding what a staffing supervisor is doing, including the computer programs that they use. While there are a lot of resources to utilize at Kelly, the number one should be your own boss!

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

    Pros

    Very organized and professional. Paid holidays once you work a certain amount of hours. Long term assignments are available.

    Cons

    Had to wait three months before a temporary job became available. This may be due to the economy in CA.

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

    Pros

    It has many features that you can use online instead of going to their office, online learning resources. The process to start working was quickly and was able to start a job quickly and pay check was on time.

    Cons

    Some of the office employees are a tad unprofessional, work is limited to warehouse jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to have more options of work from different fields and for the people from the offices be more interactive with the employees.

    Pros

    Always provided good jobs and competitive pay. The staff is very friendly. Non hostile work environment. Weekly pay. One of the best companies to work for.

    Cons

    This company is very strict with dress code which really is not a con. No benefits were offered at the time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For substitute teaching positions some subs have never worked with children and can't handle everything that goes with working with children

    Current Employee - Temporary Employee in New York, NY

    I have been working at Kelly Services full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Many opportunities for growth, many opportunities to discover where you want to work at and where you would like to go as well. You are exposed to all different fields from healthcare, insurance, the financial department and more. You get exposed to different people and you can really find out what assignment or job just may be best for you in the long run.

    Cons

    Training, can be overwhelming especially going from one assignment to another assignment. You need to develop quick skills to adapt fast for another job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to management just being more detailed with directions, more specific with all of the details for the job, being more professional, and taking the jobs more seriously.
