    I worked at Kelly Scientific Resources part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    flexible hours, work is easy

    Cons

    No structure with office management, district management. Unprofessional. Management is very narrow minded to culture.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an open mind for different office cultures, need more strength in business structure

    I worked at Kelly Scientific Resources (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good way to get a start in the scientific community.

    Cons

    Jobs are not what was described in the posting[s]. For example: You will interview for a laboratory technician position that was described as working at a bench performing chemical/biological analysis only to be greeted on day 1 with working at an industrial laboratory with no benches and no relevant (to your field or the position posted online) scientific analysis carried out at any time.

    Advice to Management

    Be truthful on what jobs you post. Don't post a laboratory job description listing benches/analysis so employees can be greeted with a $11/hr position that is wasting their time in getting much-needed experience in their field.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Kelly Scientific Resources full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you are in a market with established recruiters and management team you have the ability to grow your income with hard work.

    Cons

    Dated thinking, process improvement comes from the top and rarely mirrors the reality of the market. Internal processes are almost always in a state of change slowing down speed to market a great deal making it difficult to compete effectively. I lost alot of business to competitors while we figured out how to recruit for the business I brought in.

    Advice to Management

    Ditch the recruiting COE mentality and arm the branches with strong employees that work well together.

    Pros

    Lovely people at Kelly, greatly enjoyed working with them.

    Cons

    Many of the recruiters seem overworked. My recruiter did not know the extent of my responsibilities in the position

    Advice to Management

    Lighten the workload of recruiters so they can devote time to check in with the temps occasionally

    I have been working at Kelly Scientific Resources (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    As a contract worker, Kelly Services will help get your foot in the door with companies they have contracts with. This access can possibly lead to full time employment.

    Cons

    Contractors are expendable and contracts are not. They offer very little other than the initial access that might otherwise be difficult to attain.


  7. "Tech Review"

    Pros

    Exposure to large-scale corporations and quick on-boarding process. Weekly pay, no interaction with job after working hours finished.

    Cons

    Red-tape above and beyond what regular employees had to do, not even management knew all details needed. No training for career specific advancement. Will drop you at the soonest sign of friction between contractor and client.

    Pros

    Well established company in the Nation, but not in specific regions

    Cons

    Customer service very poor. Had three customer wanting to block calls because of management direction to call same company more than 3 times per day. Out of touch with business practices and customer service

    Pros

    Great team atmosphere. Nice mix of inside and outside sales.

    Cons

    Commission plan is difficult. So many "SOLD" accounts in area hard to find new clients. Recruiters have to want to find the candidates-if not in their area of expertise it is difficult to get them to search.

    Advice to Management

    Rethinking sold accounts. Hard for sales to make money when recruiters don't do their jobs.

    Pros

    Paid holidays after a year of employment.
    Friendly contract contacts.
    Great companies to contract with

    Cons

    I did not face any major challenges. Or even minor ones for that matter.

    Advice to Management

    I had a great experience from on-boarding to initiating my two weeks. Thank you for the opportunities.
