    I have been working at Kelly Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company has a lot of resources and support in every area so you can always call someone and get answers quickly. Pay rate is higher than average market rate and the work load is very reasonable.

    Cons

    I have honestly had zero issues so far.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to cut corners and penny pinch like other staffing companies. People get burned out wearing different hats and it just breeds frustration.
