    I worked at Kelly Paper (More than a year)

    Pros

    it's easy to build a rapport with customers. You will see familiar faces everyday. You will become an expert when it comes to paper and the paper industry.

    Cons

    incentives and targets are far reaching. constant pressure from management to meet goals. very little motivation to improve morale from corporate. Its very hard to move up in the company.

    Advice to Management

    It would be good idea to acknowledge small achievements even though the company is not doing well. Employees with low morale reduces productivity and customer service.

    Pros

    Job stability, Great Pay, Strong Company

    Cons

    No OT, Stupidvisors, In most cases job promotion is not based on performance but who you know

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing card game on PC and focus on growing the Company instead of just riding on cruise control collecting a paycheck. Promote employees to supervisor positions based on performance and not the 20, 30, 40 years you've been working at Kelly Paper

    Pros

    Benefits. (medical,vision, dental) and 401k for those who can afford to save something extra from their salary.

    Cons

    They ask too much out of sales when they can not be competitive with their prices.

    Advice to Management

    Give some over time to all employees or don't use the economy as an excuse to not give raises.
