    I worked at Kelly Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Never had a chance to find out. I wish I could provide more information. But I promise you I would much rather have been working then be stuck in a hospital bed for seven days.

    Cons

    The hypocritical treatment as if I should understand the attendance policy and where to leave message prior to attending orientation where this information was explained.

    Advice to Management

    Don't ever assume someone is lying just because you have a high turnover rate. There are always situations that are not the norm and for this reason you should give someone an opportunity to explain themselves to provide proper documentation instead of just assuming that they are lazy and did not care for the position.
