Worst place to work with Kelly as lack responsibilities. Never ever work with Kelly services

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Kelly Services

ProsNot a good company to work here as lack responsibilities....

ConsI have worked for Kelly services for 10 months and deployed to Intel India Technologies Pvt Ltd and Kelly least bother about their employee those who have deployed to client place.... My contract never renewed with client and I have not got any communication from Kelly about my last working days.... However I am permanent employee of Kelly but I have not deployed to other client place and also I should get at least 30 days of notice period, please be noted my contract got renew because Kelly negligence and I have not terminated from client place it was just contract got ended and Kelly suppose to give me other offer to work to different client place or atleast 30 days notice period.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease take care of your employee those who have deployed to client location and at least have monthly meetings with all client side deployed employee.... So that you can improved your system.
