Kelly Scientific

While Kelly Services would be classified as a soup-to-nuts agency, Kelly Scientific is niched as a “strategic workforce solution” provider in the overall scientific industry focusing on everything from Food/Beverage, Environmental Health, Chemical, Energy, and Clinical Research.

All of you have likely heard of Kelly Services – and it is actually a pretty good story starting from the recognized “Kelly Girl” image in the 1940s to their present “Workforce Solution” brand.  And to be fair, Kelly Scientific may be a great solution for your organization; however, in my experience, there are cons when you wedge a single organization between you and the recruiting talent who can find specific candidates in a niched area.

Kelly has a nationwide (actually international) presence, a solid LinkedIn existence, an active Facebook page, but no interactive blog that we could find (although they do have hiring and job seeker tips on their website).  Interestingly, I also didn’t see where they offer a money back guarantee on their permanent / direct hire placements.

I would love to hear about their ability to provide a “personal touch” to candidates and clients in the niched clinical research area.  If you have worked with Kelly Scientific in any capacity, our Audience would love to hear from you.  Add your comments about Kelly Scientific here.

    Kelly did a great job finding me a contract that I was qualified for and was reasonable. However the pay they offered was low in my opinion, and they’ll try to haggle you for the lowest price possible. Always be sure to negotiate!

    I’ve been with Kelly as a contractor for this past year so far and their recruiters are very professional and they always check in with me to see how my assignments are going. I had to resign from a contract and they were very understanding and even found me another position! The only bad thing I could think of was that their was a mix up on my first paycheck and it wasn’t my fault, but I had to wait for the next pay period to get my check. I wasn’t too much in the red when it happened so it was ok but if I had been strapped for cash it wouldn’ve been a huge problem. I think if they have problems with payroll for any reason the contractors shouldn’t have to suffer for their mistakes

    I’ve worked for Kelly as a contractor for over 3 years now and they are the best in my experience.:) They’ve always been professional and they answer all questions pretty quickly. They usually have tons of new contracts available
