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

    Pros

    Online Environment, Work at home position, training for position, casual dress,

    Cons

    Schedules are difficult to modify and are often changed on a daily basis; hours are decreased based on performance making improvement difficult to achieve; segmented environment makes upward mobility in project difficult without working/logging in on "off' time (lack of career development opportunities withing a project); when project IT issues occur we are paid, however, it IT issue happen at home site unpaid; must pay for equipment up front for new hires to take the position

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more transparency regarding career development, provide opportunities for people that fix people's needs to keep them long term to avoid burnout, make the "schedulers" a part of the floor team because it seems as it they have no idea the floor operations. Have Management take calls when the call volume is too high.

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

    Pros

    Length of assignments can last up to 1.5 years
    EEO policy

    Cons

    Not enough pay
    Benefits aren't worth the money as far as coverage and price
    Recruiters take their time finding you an assignment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have your employees back when the "customer" is in the wrong.

    Pros

    Hours, Pay and people. You get 10 hours a day so overtime pay is automatically included in check

    Cons

    5 points and your done, even if your one minute late

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you have a worker who comes in and buss there butts off to provide you with the best quality of product at a fast past, you should keep them around, everyone is gonna be late

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule and good base salaries for a recruiting gig i'd say. Office dynamics are good. Allowed to bring laptops home if needed to do work after hours which is necessary sometimes in recruiting.

    Cons

    I would say there are not a lot of cons. There is a good work life balance and you are left alone as long as you hit your numbers. Comp plan is pretty fair.
