    I used a recruiter to apply for this position. The company bypassed the phone interview at first but when I had no time to go in the same week they conducted a phone interview anyway.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Kelly Services in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was called for screen within a few days. One week later set up for interview with Regional VP for phone interview. Following that, set up for interview with another Regional VP and then with HR. I was told that after the HR interview I would be interviewing next with the hiring manager. I was never called back after this, no more interviews, no letter of rejections, no follow-up. Very unprofessional for an Employment Services company.
