Warehouse worker (Current Employee), Clevealand OH – July 21, 2014
Pros: fun, out going people
Cons: no benefits, no advancement, overtime is not abundant
The typical work day starts ant 7am on first shift and 330pm on second shift. There are no third shift positions. Work consists of a fork lift truck and a hand held computer aka "gun". Orders are compiled on wooden pallets that are four different sizes, small,medium, large, and extra large. The goal is to get an average of 90 picks per shift. Pick are – more... defined as going to an area scanning the product and then putting it on the pallet. That would count at one pick. While at this job I have significantly improved my tow motor skills. Also, I learned how to use the hand held computer which is part of the warehouse computer program. All of the orders are compiled electronically thought the "gun" and then picked throughout the warehouse. Management mainly consists of the warehouse manager and the logistics supervisor. Working here means you have to have a sense of humor,self discipline awareness to safety,and the ability to keep on task. Everyone here know how to be nice. The most difficult part of the job for me was getting used to the "gun" and learning the layout of the warehouse. The warehouse is very large. The most enjoyable part of my job is my interaction with the office staff and the floor staff. Funny and out going people to say the least. – less
Great people to work for. They really go above and beyond.

The most enjoyable part has been the people both at my assignment and within the Kelly office. – less

Customer Service for Gallagher Bassett (Former Employee), Coventry Health Care – July 16, 2014
Pros: pay checks once a week after the first 2 weeks.
Cons: i just wish they would understand people have hardships and at least give good references.
I had worked for Kelly Services in the Spokane Washington branch for 3 years. The Tucson branch was a little different personality wise. I loved the job that they were able to place me in. I completed the one month training for a 3 month position. Worked a few months never missing a day or late to show up. Unfortunately my husband died unexpectedly – more... from a massive heart attack and I became ill shortly after. I had missed calling in and was unable to be replaced. – less
Good company placement with people who are willing to give helpful pointers.
Customer Service Rep (Former Employee), San Bernardino, CA – July 16, 2014
Pros: great pay
Cons: temp to hire, only if you meet certain assistance goals
Kelly Services places majority of their temporary employees at Well Fargo Home Mortgage as a Customer Service Representative with great pay but not so great hours unless you are an earlier riser. The job itself became quite stressful due to the nature of the calls I received. I'd never had any experience in home mortgage before so it was a bit difficult – more... to understand and assist with some of the issues that were presented to me. The early start time and the difficult customers didn't make the job enjoyable at all. – less
Administrative Assistant/Secretary/Receptionist (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PA – July 15, 2014
Kelly Services is a staffing agency that offers employment ranging from temporary to permanent. Since my assignments were of a temporary nature it allowed me the opportunity to work in various types of businesses, i.e., healthcare, retail, banking, insurance, pharmaceutical, etc. I have been able to add new skills and experience to my resume. Some other – more... benefits include having a flexible schedule, nurturing relationships with co-workers and receiving pay commensurate with the job.
The hardest part of the job is having to say "good bye" after having established working relationships. What I find most enjoyable about temporary work is that it allows you the freedom to choose whether or not to accept an assignment. – less
