Senior ID Administration Analyst (Former Employee), Toronto, ON – February 18, 2015
I do not have much to say about Kelly Services. They got me my first IT job, but the pay was below standard and there were very few opportunities for advancement. Management was left to IBM and agents could be let go before their contract period expired, with contracts only being renewed annually. A typical day was just coming in, working as hard as we can and then going home at the end of our shift.
Loved the alternating positions but not always available hours for temps
GENERAL LABORER (Former Employee), Brantford, ON – May 5, 2015
Pros: Discounts on household products
Cons: Needed more hours
A typical day would be shown a line and a specific task to do. All tasks were relatively easy however, the lines brake down quite often and only being a temp - I would not end up with a full 40 hours shift causing me to look for other work.
General Labour (Former Employee), Hamilton, Ontario – September 20, 2015
its a busy plant where everyone is constantly working which makes the 12 hours shift blow by quite fast. The employee base is very diverse and allows for great interaction. Hardest part of the job is balancing alternating shifts during the week.
Administrative Support - E&I Dept (Former Employee), Fort McMurray, AB – July 14, 2012
Pros: bridge to permanent employment
Kelly's was a temp agency; although I worked through them for 13 months, I didn't really have much exposure to the actual company. I was contracted to Shell Canada Energy and worked directly for a Shell manager.
WAREHOUSE WORKER (Former Employee), Brampton, ON – May 13, 2013
Learned to work in any area within the warehouse environment. The most difficult part of the job is having days with large orders and excessive heavy lifting. The most enjoyable part of the job is the variety of individuals that one is able to meet and work with.
