“Worst agency I have been involved with”

Written on: 05/10/2014 by Titus407 (1 review written)

Worst agency I have been involved with. Randomly phone me up offering me a job interview and give me a time and date and that is the last I hear from them. No feedback on the interview, no letting me know if I was unsuccesful and why, nor can i get in touch with anyone. Makes me wonder if they really are a legitimate agency. Joke… Read Full Review

“What a farce”

Written on: 07/02/2013 by SomethingWillTurnUp (5 reviews written)

A woman from the agency phoned up to say she had my CV online and could I go and register because she had a job that would be just right for me. So I went in 2 days later as arranged but she said sorry there was a mistake as she had the wrong CV! Never mind, she said - at least you have had a morning out! … Read Full Review

“Not bad”

Written on: 19/12/2012 by NeilNguyen (1 review written)

I was treated with much kindness, respect and professionalism up until the point where I submitted my resume for review. They did not have Word 2010 at the time, so were unable to read my resume. On many attempts to convert my resume back to Word 2007 so they can read it, they gave up and I never heard from them again. Understandably, the front-end recruitment officers wouldn't be expected to be computer literate enough to be able to read a Word 2010 document, but surely someone at that place… Read Full Review

“Low Paid borderline Scam”

Written on: 01/04/2012 by MrQ111 (1 review written)

Be very aware of this agency, they are borderline legal, usualy paying minimum rate or as close to it as they can get away with. Looking at the current crop of jobs on offer at their offices is like time stood still for the last twenty years. I know people who've taken a lot of trouble filling in application forms then never hearing from them again, perhaps not a bad thing… Read Full Review

“Forms”

Written on: 30/03/2012 by Len99 (1 review written)

One of the worst employment agencies going. Loathe to budge from the minimum rate of pay. The jobs advertised look like something from ten years ago. The forms take hours to fill in and then you have to do a speed and accuracy test and then you dont hear from them again. Perhaps thats not a bad thing… Read Full Review

That is very true. I guess you are talking about Kelly Services, Kirkby, Liverpool branch. The whole place is a joke!!! I was unceremoniously dismissed as well. I was called for an interview to discuss the matter...only to find that together with the managers up there they had already come to a conclusion...no input or explanation from my side on what really could have happened! Beside its ridiculous to give staff 15 mins break for the whole day!!! I tended to use them all in the morning in the… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/10/2010

I have worked for Kelly Services as a temp for a number of years now and in most cases have secured long term temping roles from assignments which were supposed to have been weeks rather than years.
Not only did I extend the period of the position but in a number of cases significantly increased my salary.
This was in no part due to the effort of Kelly service agents who in fact,seem terrified to rock the boat and get their employees the salary they deserve for work well done.
Also when your… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/09/2010

I've been temping through the Glasgow branch for a couple of months now, and have to say that the team in Glasgow are the most professional and friendly recruitment consultants that i've ever dealt with. I'd highly recommend Kelly Services to anyone who is looking for a temporary position, people just have to remember that at the moment, there are more people looking for work than there are jobs available so you can't really hold it against them if they can't get you something… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/09/2010

Having registered on line, I waited for a week... I then phoned to confirm my cv had been received... it hadn't. I then sent it for a second time to Ric, who said he would be in touch and thanked me. Two days later I called as I had not been invited in for an interview to even see the agency, I spoke again to Ric who didn't appear to have got my cv, that is until I reminded him of the fact we had spoken only two days ago, all of a sudden it was found (amazing). He proceeded to read my cv to… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/07/2010

Unprofessional, rude. That was my impression after my one and only phone call to kelly services. After a short hello from the woman, she hit me with, Whats your experience? Whats your experience? so i told her ive done office work during the summers inbetween my time at university. All she had to say was they are 'only employ people with 6 months office experience'. If the stupid woman on the phone was actually listening and give me half a chance before putting the phone down i could have told… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/05/2010

I woked for kelly services in the M&S call centre. I turned up early every day, worked overtime at least once a week, sometimes working from 8am till 11pm with 15 minutes notice on my day off.
I was good at my job, knew what I was doing, and was polite to customers.

But they sacked me 5 weeks before Xmas. A week after M&S declared that Xmas sales were rubbish for 2009.

BUT, I was sacked for 'gross misconduct' with no reason given.

and a lot of other people, it seems, were 'grossly negligent'… Read Full Review

Beside its ridiculous to give staff 15 mins break for the whole day!!! I tended to use them all in the morning in the loo when I was freshening up if I had just rolled out of bed to go to work...then found myself with 2 minutes or so to use for the whole day and a manager at times standing at the toilet door counting down the minutes. That's how ridiculous that was!!!

Kelly Services are the worst agency company ever!
