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

    Pros

    I have learned more than I can put into words here at Kelly. I started off as a temp in 2014 and recently became full time late 2017. This place has taught me to work hard for what you want and to not give up. I have developed so many skills while working here, skills I didn't know I even had. Kelly Services inspired me to obtain a degree in HR!

    Cons

    I can say not everyone has had a positive experience like I have. I will say I am lucky. Some people felt as though they aren't appreciated and that there is a lot of favoritism present in the workplace. But, I am lucky to say I have only had a positive experience while working here.
