    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.

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

    Pros

    Kelly was my first job in recruiting and I was able to learn so much very quickly. They have an excellent training program mostly done online with webinars through their training crew. The amount of resources, both required and optional, offered through the Kelly Learning Center is phenomenal. I developed very quickly into a proficient Staffing Supervisor and had an awesome team to turn to if I ever had questions or needed assistance.

    Cons

    Working in RPO has its challenges, as does any industry. However, I believe Kelly is a top notch service provider and I loved working there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you attract talent, promote top performers quickly and be a partner in your employee's career plan so they can continue to progress with you.

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

    Pros

    I was able to work as many hours as I wanted and the overtime pay was excellent. There were also many incentives for attendance and performance.

    Cons

    My personal life suffered dramatically. The balance of time spent working vs time spent living was extreme.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better attention to on-site staff representing the company with contracted clients

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

    Pros

    Very kind people. They don't gouge your paycheck with their "finders fee" The recruters are good at briefing you about what to expect with the companies that they recruit from.

    Cons

    It can be hard to get ahold of someone in the office. I don't think there is enough staff in the office to handle the amount of employees they put to work. (They do try to maintain it though). There isn't a lot of work avaliable in their database, so if your assignment is up, you prob won't hear from them for a few months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people to help with the employee issues.

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

    Pros

    The community was good, I worked in the office and enjoyed my boss and the recruiters. Gave me opportunities to work on different projects throughout my time there.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity for growth in the recruiter position it seemed like (I was not a recruiter). The recruiting manager was extremely experienced in recruiting and knew what he was doing, but was jaded and negative most of the time, which brought others down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management could definitely spend more time showing care to the employees and investing in their lives to make them feel more valuable. Too much importance was put on numbers, and not enough on people (especially for a staffing agency).
