    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Kelly Services part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I liked the hours and the children.

    Cons

    Ten dollars an hour is low for immediate acquaintance a sub makes daily, finding resources, using different technologies, and sometimes not receiving key cards to access the different buildings you must take the children to during their day.

    Advice to Management

    Raise pay. Ensure schools can equip the dubs you send.

    I have been working at Kelly Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Kelly employees are always willing to go to bat for you. Especially with payroll. They take your time and money very seriously. They also really go to bat for you with your employers. They work really hard to place you and keep you placed in a position.

    Cons

    Need to go more digital. More and more people use email but some documents still have to be signed. Lots of different departments and transfers. You always get your questions answer... but you might get xfered thru 6 departments.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your front line more. They get a lot of heat.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Kelly Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Remote options and weekly pay. Staffing is willing to work with you to accommodate any issues which could interfere with assigned scheduling. Many available shift options, such as 5/8, 4/10, even split shifts. Promotes from within. Offers benefits, holidays and paid vacation.

    Cons

    You will always be a temp if hired to work a campaign on behalf of Kelly! There is only one option for medical insurance. Metrics such as dsats for which you have no control over, can result in termination. Example: You followed procedure, but the customer is unhappy do to company policy.

    Advice to Management

    Advisors should not be held accountable for things which they have no control over. Reprimanding one do to adhereing to company policy is counterproductive to morale. It is very disconcerting to be plagued with improving something which can not be improved upon. More insurance options would be great. Having to settle for the only option feels more like not having a choice at all.
