The people are what make KellyMitchell so amazing and the culture is like I've not seen anywhere else.
There are no cons to working at KellyMitchell. Great company, great team!

KellyMitchell is always willing to invest in the employees that invest in them! The opportunities are endless and you can create your own career path based on your hard work and dedication. They are really good at placing people in the right positions and fostering their personal and professional goals. KellyMitchell is very philanthropic as they work with a number of local and national charities and encourage participation from their employees. It's been a pleasure to work here and foresee a long career at KellyMitchell!
No Cons for the review of KellyMitchell.

The people at KellyMitchell Group work hard for the consultants they place and treat them with respect and responsiveness.
I did nit have any challenges with KellyMitchell Group which is rare in the consulting industry. They were well organized every step of the way and are the best company I have worked for thus far.4

The hybrid flexibility is ideal to be remote on Mondays and Fridays. The commission structure is VERY lucrative. Once you hit your groove, the commission adds up fast, and you can make a lot of money. Culture is another plus for sure. They hire great people and it’s nice to have coworkers who are also friends outside of work.
The industry can be tough but still rewarding. Not every day is going to be perfect, but the highs outweigh the lows. There are uncontrollable factors, which can be tough.3

Good compensation on the sales side of the organization (recruiting, sales, account management, etc.). Great co-workers to building lasting future friendships.
Offers little to no professional development. Company doesn't care if people quit because they are unhappy, huge turnover rates. People are promoted because they are well liked, not because they have the skills necessary to manage. Zero people management abilities has led to blame of failure on the recruiters rather than the manager in charge of them. Hard company to work for and be happy at the end of the day. No job stability.10

KM truly values their employees! They have made many changes over the last year after an employee internal survey around compensation, benefits, and company culture. KM allows a flexible hybrid work schedule which is great for employees who are starting to have families within a younger company. KM is a great place to grow your career in staffing and the people at KM are the best of the best. I am constantly surrounded by hard working, driven, and supportive leaders.
Ups and downs of staffing.6

Where do I begin?!? In a world of countless staffing and services companies KellyMitchell stands out. We are relatively small compared to some of the big firms but we are growing and that's what keeps me motivated everyday. The leadership truly cares about the people and they are always looking for new ways to surprise us with Happy Hours, early days, etc... At the same time this is also a place where you can't coast (and I like that). Someone once said that top performers can stand mediocre people and mediocre people can't stand top performers. Well if you are a top performer you will really like it here and be challenged by your peers all around you. We are a fantastic company with a great vision, a great team and super hip office space too (think ping-pong tables, a kegerator, fancy coffee machines and lots of other neat things)! The commission and compensation is industry leading, and the incentive trips and super motivating!
This is hard for all staffing companies, but the benefits for families are a little expensive. You can easily makes that up though by producing!1

Some of the employees are great and encouraging, although that is not to be attributed to this company really, but the individuals themselves. Sometimes the company will spend a lot of money to wow employees, however it is not enough to out shadow the negative environment and lack of organization within the company.
Management lies to you about income potential and opportunity from the very beginning. They might not necessarily be intentionally lying about everything, a lot of what they tell someone about potential is made up or based off imagination. There is no process for projecting or placing demands on any sales position. They do not evaluate market potential based of facts or hard numbers. There is no real market study, for instance screening the companies in a given area for if they even do this type of work and if they aren't already penetrated by KellyMitchell, or have fired KM in the past. On that note you are told and told to tell others that the company has never lost a client: it's a huge lie! They will hire you just to see what they can get out of you even if there is little market potential because they simply don't know or care. It is irresponsible and unprofessional, that is this company as a whole. They don't care about turnover because if people leave they get to keep more share of the profit and not pay the commission on both the recruiter and client development side- about 20%. You are told to lie to potential and current clients about the number of staff working on their needs amplified exponentially; saying there are 50 recruiters when they're are only 8-10 on staff, 2/3 of which are on other accounts. RFPs are filled out by loosely projecting potential consultants in the database and then doubling the numbers. 0 direction, no training, no process for anything. Permanent documents needed to reference for subbing consultants are missig, but you better not let that hinder you! Somehow there is still micromanagement in there, it seems impossible with the previous description, but it isn't. I got meetings with almost every potential customer within my area, only to have my meetings hijacked by the blabbering manager who wouldn't let me get a word in and threw up KellyMitchell all over the potential customer/ decision maker. We would leave and they would never talk to me again because of zero connection made. Any good sales person knows better than to conduct a meeting like this. People want you to get to know them and not desperately splurge company facts at them. Then I would be blamed for not making things happen, when I wasn't trusted to run the meeting in the first place after attaining it on my own. The manager wasn't even in the same state as me, and when in town would blow me off when I scheduled a meeting with her ahead of time to get to know her better; it's hard to earn trust and open communication when your manager doesn't know you at all and doesn't act as if she wants to. I quickly learned open communication is is not welcomed and is a trap. If you don't blow smoke or suck up with power players you are fired out of nowhere. I watched almost the entire sales staff quit or get fired with no warning in the 6 months I was there. Upper management has no idea what they're doing or what's going on in the company. They are a lawyer and engineer who were on a temp hiring team during a strike and decided to open and it recruiting firm- have no expertise so are quick to think this is easy and if their number projections aren't realistic then sales people are lazy, it's ridiculous. They tell you to earn clients by promising we can cover jobs other firms can't, but they don't realize promising Java developers for $75,000/ year isn't possible because there simply aren't any in St. Louis who aren't working already and making 6-figures plus...just make it happen or you're fired 'because you don't want to work hard'. The people who stay are told, and reassure themselves by thinking they are the few who are willing to work hard so they can continue on without guilt, but really it's about how much you are liked based off how much you suck up and how fake you are. If you have ideas don't share them because you will hurt someone's ego and get fired, if you are smart you won't last. if your a sorority bully you'll fit in great! Don't waste your time, you will only learn how to play games or leave feeling completely insecure at your next job because this place is a game that will mess with your head no matter how smart you are and how hard you try. In fact, the smartest people here don't last long except for the few who have tenure who keep their head down and make their own rules...you will know them when you see them, they will never leave or be fired because the company wouldn't know what to do without them, and they don't want to have anything to do with helping someone new. Like I said, just don't waste your time it's a total mess. Oh and benefits are laughable- obamacare is amazing compared to this coverage and price.21

People seemed relatively nice and friendly. Office was well furnished.
Hiring process took an extremely long time and after finally receiving an offer I was told within four days that the position was being taken in a different direction.12

The people here at Kelly Mitchell are willing to go above and beyond to making sure you have the best experience on boarding! With any question I had, there was always someone willing to pick up the phone and give me an answer, no matter how small the question may have seemed. They guided me through every step and we're always kind and made me feel appreciated. You know you're signing up with a good company when their main objective is to make sure you're happy and get the best position possible. I couldn't recommend them more!
A lot of paperwork! But it's to be expected.4
