    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kelly Services.

    Interview

    Confusing and Disappointing - Recruiter felt I was well suited for the position, but never followed up with me after the initial call. I followed up two days later, but was told the recruiter was busy. Either way, qualified or not communication is key, and it was sorely lacking here. It was clear they had never interviewed for a technical position before. Have a plan and learn the key components before calling potential candidates. Job hunting is hard enough don't make it harder.

Company Updates

  • The 2015 Kelly Global Workforce Index survey is now closed! Globally, nearly 165,000 workers responded, providing their point of view on a variety of work-related topics. Check back in a few weeks to see the results!

  • Second quarter results announced. Commenting on the second quarter, CEO Carl Camden stated, “I’m pleased to report that Kelly once again delivered strong operating leverage and improved returns. On a constant currency basis, we grew second quarter revenue and held our expenses relatively flat, dropping more than half of our gross profit growth to the bottom line. Last year’s investments in PT and OCG are yielding results, and we are executing a strategy that clearly aligns with market trends and customer needs.”
