Kelly Services Complaints & Reviews

Kelly ServicesI applied for a job on indeed, and was denied the job due to a misdemeanors not aligned with their policy

As I was called by the recruiter and told that their policies didn't allow for my employment. As I asked for a copy of the background check. I was told that they didn't do one, but my misdemeanors was not within their policy requirements. I continued to ask what the policy was, I was told that he didn't know what the policy was and it wasn't disclosed to him. So I stated it's poor business to say that you can not hire because of a policy of which you don't know what it is and no one can disclose which policy my misdemeanors go against. I wasn't offered the job not because of a policy. I was not offered the job because of a discriminatory bias against the misdemeanors I had. At no time could they state what the policy was. At this time I'm glad I am not working for a company that bases their decisions on a discriminatory bias with no real policy to go off of. I was told how my resume and job experience made me the perfect candidate for the job, the recruiter and his manager approved me for the job placement until I filled out the paperwork and background check. It was a discriminatory bias decision with no clear policy to back up their decision. I'm reporting discrimination and unclear unwritten policy guidelines.

    Kelly ServicesTemporary service no response

    I left my previous position to accept a job that Kelly really sold me on, telling me the company would provide training for me. I should have trusted my instincts and seen the red flags as the company hired me right away, knowing it was an industry change for me and they were vague about the job duties when I specifically asked. It was a horrible job. I realized too late that the company churned through employees like paper towels. I found hundreds of scathing reviews and even the staff would tell me "run" all the time. I contacted the manager and my liaison at Kelly, Grecia Rodriquez, several times about the lack of training, and my concerns, to no avail. The company told me I was "doing great" only to abruptly terminate me the next week as"not a good fit". I contacted my agent Grecia, by phone and text several times, pleading for her to call me and what were the next steps? They never call back. I check the site for jobs but don't find anything. The recruiter and this agent completely ignore me and have not called me back for two weeks. I can only assume I'm on my own now. This has been the worst employment experience I've ever ad in over 30 years as a business professional.

      Kelly ServicesLocal Representative not cooperative

      I started work for Kelly Services on February 24, 2020. my assignment end date was erroneously entered into payroll for Feb 26, 2020. (first mistake) I didn't realize this until I tried to enter my hours for the week ending 3/1/2020. I was partially paid for the first week but missing 2 days worth of wages. (second mistake) Ireached out numerous times to Brandon Price, the Kelly representative at Jabil. (Monument, CO) I have reached out numerous time to Kelly Serives payroll hotline also. I even reached out to my recruiter numerous times. Today is March 18, 2020 and the situation still has not been resolved. CASE # [protected]
      I am also quarantined per my doctors request due to fever and symptoms of COVID 19. My family desperately needs these two days of wages to make ends meet.
      Very Disappointed,

        Kelly Servicesunauthorized hours, gross incompetence, unprofessionalism

        I initially became a temp for these guys in July 2018, they actually did manage to get me a gig in a field in which I have a lot of experience and things seemed to be going well despite the fact that I wasn't paid for the first 3 weeks when I started working for their client. Eventually I did well enough that their client, Baker Hughes, took me on as a direct full time employee. During the last week of May 2019 I was instructed by my new manager not to enter a time card into Field Glass since Baker Hughes would pay me for the hours worked on the last week of may so I didn't.

        Unfortunately I ended up getting layed off around mid June 2019 having only been a direct employee for 2 weeks. Then around mid august I received a letter in the mail from Kelly Services saying I was over payed for 33 hours for the last week of May which was my official start week for the Baker Hughes so I hadn't entered a time card for that week into Field Glass and was actually payed by my new job for those hours. I called temp payroll compliance and was told that SOMEONE ON KELLY SERVICES END had actually entered the 33 hours into their system despite the fact I never entered a time card into the Field Glass system for the pay period, this employee had ASSUMED I had worked for Kelly Services when I was in fact working directly for Baker Hughes.

        So in a nutshell someone working for Kelly Services ENTERED TIME UNDER MY NAME into their system with NO FACTUAL KNOWLEDGE of how many hours I actually worked that week, turned out to be 38 hours but like I mentioned above Baker Hughes paid me NOT Kelly Services, more over they did so with ABSOLUTELY NO CONTACT with me, they didn't call to ask how many hours, they didn't e-mail me to say they had done this on my behalf. Because obviously I would have told them not to and to get a hold of Baker Hughes because I was an official employee for them now.

        Do these people not communicate with their clients at all? I know they sure as hell don't with their temps During my time with Kelly Services I received no follow up emails, no contact of any kind, not even a "hey congratulations on getting hired" or anything that acknowledged my success. I mean doesn't one of their temps getting hired on full time by one of their clients exhibit how well Kelly Services does what it does? Evidently not.

        I did everything that was asked of me by Kelly Services. I passed their drug and alcohol test, I missed not a single time card entry, I passed Baker Hughes's drug, alcohol test, their hearing and physical exam, the T.D.G course and Forklift certification. From July 2018 to June 2019 I missed one day of work due to the flu. I worked dozens of hours of overtime without complaint. And at the end of it all I get a letter demanding money back for hours I had no idea had even been entered under my name or even paid for, threatening legal recourse if I don't submit the funds to them.

        As far as I knew Baker Hughes had told Kelly Services that I was now a full time employee of Baker Hughes. So after that there should have been NO further time entry of any kind by Kelly Services but they went ahead and did it anyway without telling anyone about it. I chalk this all up to incompetence on Kelly Service's part, but honestly to me it feel like they're just trying to rip me off. In the future I want nothing to do with them and will make my business to see to it no one I know does business with them either.

          Kelly Servicesemployee

          I am an employee with Kelly Services temp agency out of Pittston PA. As an employee I am never able to contact anyone in our office out of Pittston office via phone. I'm able to contact via email however it takes days for a response. I use to work for Kelly Services a few years ago out of their Moosic office and I was able to contact the office by phone every day any time of day however since they've moved to a Pittston office it seems as though it is impossible to contact anyone. One of my co-workers had to pay issue and has still yet to get in contact with anyone they called Kelly Services payroll and payroll told them we have to contact Kelly Services. I do not like to say this however it seems as though it is either poor management or that they do not care about their employee anymore as much as I need a job I also need support as an employee.

            Kelly Servicesdesperate for pawns

            I never applied to this company, and I never would, yet a message from Kelly Services showed up in my priority emails and it goes as follows:

            ""Hello :

            Thank you for choosing Kelly Services. Use the following information to access our eRegistration website:

            Username = (please enter a period between first and last name)

            Please log in and complete eRegistration as soon as possible.""

            I've worked for a staffing agency before, and I know their game. I would never work for one again. This agency found my information, perhaps on an employment website like Indeed, and made an account in my name without my permission and sent me an email like I had made it myself.

            Desperate and predatory.
