    I worked at Kelly Services full-time

    Pros

    They were nice and willing to talk to you.

    Cons

    I was working with an onsite temp agency and they didn't really care about the people. It took a long time to try to get on permanent and it seemed like it was a waste of time working there.

    Advice to Management

    Tell the truth about full-time employment (getting hired through the company) instead of keeping people in limbo.

    Pros

    Good company to work and people are friendly.

    Cons

    Need to offer health insurance to employees. It is a difficult and physical job. Since they do not offer health insurance to employees, it would be nice to at least write a thank you card to those employees who work overtime.

    Room to move up and cross train

    They have become more of a Robert Half where you are just another number. Hire managers with no industry experience who have a dictator style and stifle people's success.
