    Great divide with back office to sales. Management don't want to pay staff what they are owed.

    I worked at Kelly Services full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nothing I could think of.

    Cons

    - Those consultants who brought in the deals with clients where looked on as gods and everyone else was looked over.
    - Massive divides in all areas of the business, between back office and consultants, between states, between consultants themselves.
    - The back office received no acknowledgement or support for the hard hard work that was performed.
    - The MD isn't a great person by any means. She's not a good influence for the company at all. Gets her friends into management roles who are incompetent.
    - I've seen the company treat loyal employees like crap. If they need to cut heads, they won't hesitate. They will try not to pay you what you are owed.

    By far one of the worse places I worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Without your back office staff, your company doesn't run. Recognition for the super long hours and ridiculous targets being met should be rewarded.

    Current Employee - Recruitment Consultant in Perth, Western Australia

    I have been working at Kelly Services full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Less cut throat than other agencies from what I've heard, KPI's for cold calling etc are increasing as a result of the company falling behind its competition within Perth. Have some good PSA agreements and are working hard to get more. Not much work politics.

    Cons

    Currently very few desirable PSAs, all high frequency low margin type positions, little to no exposure to engineering/mining and accounting in Perth. All Perth does is engineering/mining and accounting so having no foothold effects the other divisions as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    none

    Pros

    Pay is higher than minimum wage.
    You get benefits even though it is a seasonal job.
    Higher pay if you're bilingual.
    If you do good, you can get really far.
    Great communication between company and employee.
    Organized system.
    Great for gaining skills and experience that will serve you later on for other jobs.

    Cons

    You start off as a contractor for the companies they get employees for. If you do not do your best, expect to be there only a couple months.
