relaxed environment with fun people to work with and who you can relate to.
File Assistant (Current Employee) – DC - District of Columbia, DC – November 28, 2017
I say good morning to my co-workers and set up my desk for work. I put folders in place along with notepads. Then log into my computer to wait on request that my co-workers complete, so that I can check them as well as send them to the record center.
I learn the government workers work assignment.
I don't get paid as much as the others but do there work.
• Manage day-to-day office operation, including but not limited to problem and conflict resolution, organization and prioritization of tasks, and responding to written communication. • Design and coordinate systems of communication among staff to facilitate the efficient flow of information relating to projects and program activities.
Since the company is a contractor company the typical day at work, workplace culture etc. varies. In general Kelly government solutions support their contractors very well and are available to help with any issues.
I expressed initiative and motivation to learn new skills. However, those desires where rejected because management expressed that if you were hired for a certain position, that's what you should focus on exclusively. Therefore, there was no opportunity for growth within the company.
Kelly Gov Solutions is largely a wonderful company to work for. Benefits, paid vacation and access to management are great. The first sticking point is job title; not accurate which directly effects pay. The salaries are already on the low end. Second, NIA is the worst site to be placed. There are 2 managers there that are astonishing in their rudeness, vindictiveness and lack of professionalism. You will not be happy here working in, or related to, the core lab. The first 6-12 months are doable but most people don't stay longer than that.
Association with NIH; plenty of paid vacation; paid Government holidays
NO opportunity for advancement; no salary increases; Point of Contact for job site is very, very difficult to work with.
Program Analyst, contractor (Former Employee) – Bethesda, MD – June 6, 2017
I worked at Kelly Government Solutions as a contractor employee to the federal government from 2012 - 2016. I had the same assignment at the National Institutes of Health for the entire 4 years of my employment with Kelly.
Being affiliated with and working to support the top physician scientists in the Nation
In addition to working with a federal government client, my contract included health benefits equivalent to the cost of federal employees. I was included in all teambuilding activities/training. I felt like one of the team and not as an outside contractor.
Fun onsite activities, excellent inhouse training
transitioning to federal employment was not an option
I work in the grants administration office for the Nation Human Genome Research Institute. I review competing and non-competing applications to receive federal grants and I provide guidance to grantees on federal policy, procedures and regulations. I have worked on complex research awards and cooperative agreements as well as NRSA training grants and fellowships.
Shipping and Receiving Clerk (Contract) (Current Employee) – Rockville, MD – March 15, 2015
A typical day is filled with receiving and distributing packages that come in for the customer. Day to day functions also consist of assisting lab mangers with stocking the labs, cleaning labs, and ordering items for the labs. Co-workers are so easy to get along with. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. The hardest part of my job if getting all of the shipments to all of the customers before the end of the day because we occupy three buildings. The most enjoyable part of my job is when I'm able to able to help the customer in any way possible.
Registration Analyst (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – January 30, 2015
I really don't interact with anyone at the company unless I have a serious issue or questions. My position is great. When I questions or concerns it's address quickly. The weekly pay is great. But the company benefits for it's employees could be a little better. I guess it depends on the contract.
Program Coordinator (Former Employee) – Bethesda, MD – January 26, 2015
I was a part of a Reduction in Force with DC Government. I found employment with Kelly Government Solutions. This was the best assignment. I enjoyed being a part of Kelly. They offered a generous benefits package and compensation. I earned leave and the staff was always concerned and very helpful when there were issues on the sites. I enjoyed working for KGS and would recommend them to anyone!
Open office. Turn on all office machines. Make coffee. Check interview room for supplies. Check voice messages. Check emails. Assisted recruiters with administrative work. Learned how to access JPAS. Co-workers were a joy to work with. Enjoyable place to work.
great placement company, they leave you to the specific contractor
