    I have been working at Kelly Services part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The hours were flexible so you basically worked at your own leisure. The pay was also great. The pay period is every week.

    Cons

    The students sometimes have behavior issues so good classroom management skills are a must. The high paying schools are far and the low paying schools aren't worth it.

    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.

    Current Employee - Recruiter in Minneapolis, MN

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

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good job
