This was my first job as being a dba, so I am greatful to them for hiring me without any experience. Learned a lot and worked hard to proof myself. The team lead was a great personality, very demanding but helpful.

Productive, Fun, encouraging and discouraging

Human resource availability was poor for this project. I felt as if I was alone. Email was the main communication between us, however communication was more one sided in that they could send email to my personal email but when I needed to send an important email to them it was scrutinized and nearly blocked. As I stated I felt alone out on a limb ready to fall off hanging on for dear life. I felt uneasy and unimportant most of the time

Good work life balance

Three days on and then four days off every other week is definitely a plus. It leaves a lot of time to spend with family or so things you enjoy. The other week is good too. Minimum three days off

Reliable

Kelly is a great place to work for. Although some assignments aren’t permanent, once it ends, they’ll work with you to help put you on your next assignment.

Great job if you need flexibility.

Kelly is a great company to work for. I love that I can work the days I choose and select schools that work best for me. We’re paid every Friday, never any issues.

Flexible and that’s it

Low pay! And they don’t pay you some times for your service. Beware because one complaint can cost your entire job EVEN when it’s not true! Don’t work here!

Pros

Flexible

Cons

Cancel Assignments without investigation, low pay

Laid back

I love being a substitute teacher, some schools are hand on and you do get the opportunity to teach kids. I have no issues with them and would continue to work with them

It's good for a starting work from home job

If you stay dedicated you can get paid good money. Be careful with the computers they send as I had 3 bad ones, which caused me to miss almost a month of work with how long they took to get replacements.

Engineers and co workers work closely to guide projects along

I worked at intel in Hillsboro Oregon. It is nearly impossible to get hired on at intel permanently. I did enjoy working at intel. I would recommend it for anyone who enjoys working in a technical field. Kelly services took good care of me. I was paid fairly and, I used the medical and dental benefits. They were always helpful to answer my questions on pay and benefits. I didn’t worry about losing my job, as I was treated respectfully and as competent. I would happily work for Kelly Services again if they ever needed me.

Pros

Great work life balance

Cons

Sad when your contract ends

Joy and Pain

Subbing is a mixed bag at any school. The platforms used to schedule are easy to use and very helpful. The pay is not worth eight hours of caring for students. The pay range is from 100-220 a day. I'm not sure who gets the 220 a day.

Pros

Great Apps and Training

Cons

Poor pay

Good experience for future teachers, but they treat you like trash

The kids and schools were mostly amazing. I worked here while I was also doing my teaching field experience 3 days a week. I accidentally mixed up my subbing and teaching experience and missed a day. I called them back, but they terminated me. I had awesome reviews at schools and a stellar record. They will throw you away for just one mistake. You are nothing but a number to them. Also, there is almost no real training.
