I was offered a position with this company but I didn't take it because I have done work like this before and didn't go anywhere. It was not for a lack of trying but I could totally see right through to the scam.
Unfortunately, my fiance got sucked into this and there is just no way of making her see the light. no matter what I try. Kelly advertising closed the office here in Denver and she decided to move to Burbank. Well I figured the best way for her to learn was going to be the hard way.
Granted, I have some college experience and I work in retail. I still don't know what I want to do for a career, but I know that I do not want to do retail the rest of my life.
She on the other hand has two Bachelors degrees and it is disheartening knowing that she could be doing better.
Instead, she chooses to work her a** off for a company that doesn't offer benefits, no guaranteed pay check, she has to use her own car, no gas reimbursement, files a 1099 at the end of the year, and hardly ever sees any of her family.
I am somewhat pissed that I was put aside for this type of job and I know that it would be really easy to separate with her but I still have hope that she will break the brainwashing that is going on.
I read some of the other responses to Kelly Advertising and all of them are true and exact. I would hope that my response would encourage others to realize that this is a dead end job filled with false hopes.
I would like to leave you all with an account of the type of people that they do not want working for them.
I was told a story about a kid, and when I say kid, he was in his early 20's, that applied for this job and really gave it a shot. He did the job for maybe a week and he called and told my fiance later that night that he didn't think that this job was going to work out. She tried to convince him otherwise. In the end he told her that he was the only one taking care of his kid and that the 70+ hours a week wouldn't be enough to trade his time for his kid. I think that a single dad, especially at his age with that type of responsibility and the conviction to take that on by himself are so few and far. In the end, the perfect people for this job would at least be the homeless, not that I would wish this on anyone, but at least it could get them off the freeway exits and off the streets.
