I got to do a variety of diffrent jobs within the locations I got sent to.
Temporary Associate (Former Employee), Springfield, MO – July 24, 2014
It was always doing what ever was needed most. You didn't always do the same thing. We were always learning new things. We were in new areas all the time. It was according to what was needing done first. The management kept us busy and made sure we knew what we were doing. They would come and see how we were doing after they got us started too. The – more... co-workers would help us if they had done it before and even give us ideas of how to do it if we were having a hard time with it. The hardest part was that we never knew if we were coming back next week or if the work was slowing down and we were going to get our hours cut. The work was always different and fast paced. It made the day go by pretty good. – less
Productive work with a chance the officially join the company permanately
Material Handler (Former Employee), Suffolk, VA – July 21, 2014
Pros: easy work
Cons: not enough money
Well, being a temporary worker, you get the oppurtunity to learn how to do everything throughout the warehouse. I've learned how to work various machines and my co-workers were very helpful. The hardest part of the job is waiting for the chance to become permanent. The most enjoyable part is that it wasn't a difficult job to learn.
Tier 1 Apple Advisor Work from Home (Former Employee), Orlando, FL – July 18, 2014
Pros: work from home
Cons: no benefits and no job security
I learned how to troubleshoot all Apple projects. The job was very demanding in the customer service field which required a very flexible schedule. The management team worked with the employees the best that they could but sometimes it was not balanced. The hardest part of the job was to receive satisfactory surveys from the customers that you assist – more... in a day. The most enjoyable part of the job was the learning aspect and the nice customers who called in – less
Packaging Associate (Former Employee), Richmond, VA – July 18, 2014
Pros: working with others who did not mind helping you
Cons: gossiping actual employees, some bad attitudes
-working under Kelly services is alright. sent to work for Fareva - learn that once you are working they tell you that are not who their workers have to report specific issues to. - Management was ok -Co workers I was with were great people and we did work as a great team!! - getting used to working at night, the steel toe shoes to wear and the scrubs – more... for uniforms, which were NOT properly cleaned, and dealing with big machines to clean and use!! -meeting some new people, opening up the new products, learning how things worked in the company warehouse – less
Machine Operator (Current Employee), Fort Smith, AR – July 18, 2014
Pros: wide range of freedom in work environment
Cons: heat, pay
It was a great place to work for. People are nice in which caused for a stress work environment. A typical day at work wasn't like normal places I have worked for. We all worked together in a friendly and respectful way. I learned that morality was a key roll in this company which kept the people humble and willing to work harder. Management was laid – more... back and knew how to give out orders and demands that weren't harsh or rude. The co-workers pushed safety to high regards. Each worker cared for one another. The hardest part of the job would be the heat. I believe the highest working temperature was at 120 degrees in summer. The most enjoyable part of the job for me was the responsibilities. I like to take on challenges because it pushes me to learn more and in return gave me more respect for my own self. – less
Factory employee(Plexus) (Former Employee), Neenah, WI – July 15, 2014
Pros: great co-workers, morale lunches
Cons: long hours. no family/work balance
Was placed at Plexus they were extremely unorganized, I had to wait for almost a week to get my log in info to even do my training and get into work programs on the computer. The production lead didn't even know I was starting that day. And was constantly shuffled to different departments in the first week. I was also told that there would be overtime – more... which is fine unless you want to practically live there. – less
Kelly Services is a good agency. I don't have any issues with the agency. They always find great assignments for me. What I liked about working on different assignments is you learn and gain the skills and knowledge you need to take you on to the next level in your career. Also you find out what you like to do. The hardest part about working on different – more... assignments is leaving the coworkers who I enjoy working with. – less
Pros: time off, friendly atmosphere, comfortable office setting
Cons: no advancement, small bonuses if any, no pay raises
Sometimes you are overwhelmed with work and other times it is slow. Management is unpredictable with three owners and one office manager that thinks they are an owner. No direct procedures established for office conduct and rules - office manager makes them up and changes them frequently. Environment of office can change quickly and you can be pulled – more... in various directions at one time. Must be willing to lie to customers on daily basis as well as take on major responsibilities not included in your job description and pay. No room for advancement from the position you are hired for and do not expect a raise. Time off is good as 1-5 year employees accrue 10 hours a months and 5-10 year employees accrue 13 hours a month with anything over 15 years accruing 16 hours a month. – less
Assembly Line Worker (Current Employee), Brighton MI – July 7, 2014
A typical day at work usually went well. I learned how to run the line and what happened at each station. The management was excellent I loved my supervisor. My co-workers were great, I would say I made some pretty strong friendships. The hardest part of the job would be when ever the line went down. The most enjoyable part of the job was I felt accomplished – more... when I left there every night – less
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), South Barrington, IL – July 2, 2014
Pros: as an employee, experiencing life learned lessons is certain.
Cons: it is difficult to be hired as a authentic allstate employee, when you were initially hired through an agency.
Working at Allstate was a great experience. It was there where I learned how to conduct myself accordingly with customers of all kinds. Management was fair whether distributing assignments, reprimanding inappropriate behavior on the job, or showing appreciation towards workers. Most of my co-workers were easy to work with and great to be around. The – more... hardest part of the job was to deal with the "irate" customer. Sometimes that type of customer is almost impossible to please. However having an abundance of knowledge of the job and patients will help you to get to the heart of the problem so the situation can be resolved. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that you are needed for a job and helping to get positive results. There is great satisfaction in knowing that the customer is happy of the service provided. – less
Executive Assistant (Current Employee), Conshohocken, PA – June 28, 2014
Pros: learning a new industry; growth.
Cons: location; limited access to restaurants etc. company is relocating in 2014.
I signed with Kelly Services during the summer of 2012. After one interview with another potential employer, I was placed on temporary assignment with Take Care Health Systems in January of 2013. I have no complaints with Kelly Services, the representatives are professionals with a focus on their customers' needs. My experience with Take care Health – more... has been very interesting. Supporting the Director of Quality has provided knowledge into areas such as clinical, credentialing, and OSHA. – less
