Worst company I ever worked for.
IT Support (Current Employee), Toronto, OntarioApril 8, 2013
Pros: i can afford to eat
Cons: low pay and many payroll errors.
In the last 40 years, I've worked for many companies, but I've never dreaded payday until I started with Kelly. I've lost track of the number of times they messed up my paycheque. Errors included depositing my pay to the wrong account several times, getting paid late and not getting paid for statutory holidays. The company they placed me with is great, – more... and they're the only reason I've tolerated Kelly for this long, but I think I might be walking soon. – less
