    I have been working at Kelly Services full-time

    Pros

    Kelly provides a lot of work flexibility in terms of working from home etc, and there is a lot of opportunity to learn. Management is generally supportive.

    Cons

    It is definitely a corporate environment, where money is the top priority.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on your own people, and definitely more on the contractors you place with clients.

    I worked at Kelly Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The ladies in the office seems nice, but the place they send you too are not so nice.

    Cons

    I worked here on and off for a few years, I found myself in a endless cycle of temp jobs where I was never found good enough to get hired on. More then likely because I was female since 8/10 times my male co-workers who were serious slackers got hired on. It was extremely frustrated always being considered disposable aswell.

    Advice to Management

    Do more research on the places you send the temps, dont mislead that they will get hired on when it can take years and years for that to happen.
