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

    Pros

    Decent salary for the position. Not a highly stressful environment, although deadlines can sometimes be unreasonable.

    Cons

    Your recruiter cannot direct you into another contract position unless you have worked there for over a year. Understandable, but frustrating for a short-term contract.

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

    Pros

    Independent culture. Not looking over your shoulder but offers consistency in an otherwise difficult job market. On site manger is great and professional.

    Cons

    Pay is not great. No benefits and there is a true sense that you are just a number but given the market, that is completely how the reality of the situation is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More growth opportunities and higher pay. Benefits would be nice, too. How about a 401k option!?

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

    Pros

    As a contractor, I have flexibility to leave my long term contract. The host company isn't willing to commit to me, and I feel the same freedom. Because my host company is Fortune 500, my hourly wage is better than average.

    Cons

    My role is long term temporary, and the host company is not kind to its contractors. Kelly tries to support us as best they can, but they are limited by the contract with the host company. Vacation time and other benefits are seriously deficient, considering I am a long term employee, not a Kelly girl who bounces from one contract to another.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nearly all of my two-week paid vacation is used on days the host company has off. Renegotiate our contracts to allow us some level of vacation time that doesn't have to be used in such a way.
