Office assistant (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 10 September 2018
It's been almost 30 years since I've temped with Kelly Services. I found that going from company to company every two weeks very stressful, as you never really learn how the company operates, and what your duties actually are. Not for me.
Material Flow Activity Coordinator (Current Employee) – Saskatchewan – 6 July 2018
Fast past work environment, management is pretty much hands off, as the client does the day to day management. Culture is a real mix of people which is great for variety. Enjoyable times with training in new computer systems.
Excellent Starting Point for entering the workforce
Receptionist & Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 5 July 2018
Whether it be after education or in-between jobs, Kelly Temp Services is a great place to work to get familiar with what profession you want to pursue. It also provides a great way to network when out on various assignments. The hardest part of the job is working in places that you enjoy but there is no opening for you to become permanently employed at that place. The Best part of the job is that you can work your own schedule to suit your lifestyle as a temp.
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Brantford, ON – 25 June 2018
Most days I worked at SCJ, and I inspected and packed product and I was a machine operator. Loved working for them! The hardest part of the job was 12hr continental shifts. They provided enough breaks for the hrs worked and had free lunches almost every month.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 4 June 2018
They were good for finding me a job and friendly but when it comes to knowing the rules about holiday pay and overtime pay nobody seems to know how it works. Most of the people through the customer service line are American and don’t know anything about Canada. The representative I had was nice but she was in Ontario and she didn’t know anything about the Alberta employment standards. Watch your paystubs for hours and holiday pay cuz they aren’t consistent. I had issues with being paid properly on holidays. They also take a percentage of your wage if you aren’t aware of that!
IT/Customer Technical Difficulties (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 31 May 2018
A disorganized and desperate to be 'hip' corporate structure prevented this from being a great place to work. The lack of permanent desks/places to work in the office was frustrating. All it lacked was the bean bag chairs and you would think you were in San Fran in a start up.
