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

    Pros

    This position can be 3 or 4 stars depending on your individual team and manager. I have had rockstar management with Kelly, and managers that do no seem to care. With a great manager this position is a great job.

    Cons

    Kelly likes to run lean staff, therefore everyone is over worked and not compensated for it.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in remote and flex schedule options to keep internal employees.

    Pros

    I having good to say about Kelly Services, They dont understand they are affecting peoples lives.

    Cons

    I lost a job because of Kellys, They made me do a ridiculous test, of making circles, lines, simple math, adding, I was just told that, this is done for a requirement for the client doing the hiring. I dont think for a technician job that this was a requirement. The Kellys in Daytona is a no go dont ever go there for jobs, or should a company use Kellys Daytona. A few years back they tried to screw me out of my unemployment insurance, but I won my case, and the case worker said that Kellys is one of the worst for workers, and should be shutdown.

    Advice to Management

    Shutdown Kellys especially in Daytona Beach
