    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Kelly Services part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fair in assignments, respectful to employees, clean tidy environment, rapid updating of working positions or assignments

    Cons

    projects often irregular in length-end up being shorter in duration than indicated when signing up, difficult to sit all that time even though it is encouraged to stand and walk around if need be. If one does that, then less time spent scoring and decreased productivity = no chance for bonus

    Advice to Management

    Not sure who is who at times. Didn't know who HR person was. Thought it very irregular for this person to call to say I had been selected for Senior reader position. Person did not identify herself as HR. I did not take the position at that time. I have never heard of Glassdoor before and so have never viewed any of the other career opportunities.
