Job placement agency
Various positions (Former Employee), Saint John, NBJuly 2, 2013
Pros: coworkers
Cons: downtime
If you are looking to work wherever this is for you. The staffing agency were great people and the odd jobs were fine as well. The jobs never had a hard part to them at all. The only downside was sometimes you would go a while without work simply because there were too many people looking as well and the jobs were dry.

It was good for the time needed
Temporary clerical assignments (Former Employee), AuroraJune 14, 2013
Pros: earned money
Cons: far to travel
I worked for Kelly Services on an assignment with State Farm processing claims - data entry. It was a very repetitive job inserting information regarding claims. The job was too far away from my home and would prefer to work in Barrie.

Alternate Root
On-Site Coordinator (Former Employee), Brantford, OntarioMay 14, 2013
My job at Alternate Root was grading tobacco as it came down the conveyor belt.
This job was seasonal in nature. I had the opportunity to work with the same crew for 5 years. We had the opportunity to develop a really good working relationship with one another.
Our day would start between 6:30 am to 7:00 am. The hardest part of this work would be the long days when we would encounter a bad kiln filled with mold. This would involve all of us tearing off the mold off every leaf when the kiln was bad. However, because I worked with the best crew, the day was made bearable. The best part of the job would be when we had a really good kiln and be done within 3-4 hours.

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, and they're the only reason I've tolerated Kelly for this long, but I think I might be walking soon.

Kelly services Square one
unemployed (Former Employee), MississaugaNovember 12, 2012
I dropped in to apply for a IBM position. they refused to let me apply and sent me in circles to apply for it. When given the number to call for aplication, it was a wrong number. DEAD END.
I requested to just make a profile to keep in file. that too they refused to do. Square one branch is terrible. i would not ever waste my time with them. they are well referred by my colleagues but my visit there was dissapointing.
