Company Culture

I enjoyed the job it just got to be too much dealing with unruly customers and ringing in my ears 40 times per day

Support from management

Yes

Teamwork

Hard to feel like a team when you only get to see eachother for 30 minutes per week (IF THAT...)

Freedom to work independently

Completely

Internal Communication

Communication was above average

Gender Equality

Yes

Attitude towards older colleagues

Yes

Career Development

Yes and no. Some of the advancement paths put you into departments that you may be forever trapped in.

Overall compensation for your work

Yes

Office / Work Environment

home-based

Environmental Friendliness

Yes

Work-Life Balance

Work-life balance was okay

Job Security

Yes

Handicapped Accessibility

not applicable

Workplace Safety

home-based

Challenging Work

Very challenging.

Inclusive / Diverse

They will hire from anywhere in the U.S.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The way that the schedules work could definitely be improved. You basically choose from one of 3 shifts at the time you are hired and are LOCKED into that shift unless you get stellar (top 50) kind of performance and can choose a different one. That is really unfortunate for people who need to change to a different timeslot later and can't because of their performance.

What I like about the company

There were some days when I really enjoyed the job and got to speak to friendly people from all over the United States and beyond. There were days that made me cry tears of joy and other days that were tears of sadness I just couldn't keep doing it and had to move on.

What I dislike about the company

More frequent/longer team meetings so that remote workers feel like they are a part of something

Company Culture

The company is really great but the culture at certain schools as a substitute teacher can be horrible.

Freedom to work independently

I love the independent nature of being a substitute teacher, you're really only interacting with the students and aren't micromanaged.

Gender Equality

I see lots of diversity when I see other subs out and about.

Career Development

No room for growth or raises

Office / Work Environment

Some of the school's admin can be cold and rude but that had nothing to do with Kelly.

Work-Life Balance

Great. You can work how much or how less you want

Challenging Work

Depends on the school, in some schools the workday can be very stressful. If you choose ithers your day can be a breeze.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Pay more, provide health insurance, advocate forfaur treatment of subs at schools.

What I like about the company

I love the flexible scheduling Kelly provides. They are realistic with their expectations and it can be a very enjoyable place to work.

What I dislike about the company

Please pay more for substitutes and provide healthcare. We go through so much as substitute teachers, a raise once a year would be great.
