    Company was not focused on employees and their well being, work-mule would be an accurate description of my time at RGIS

    Pros

    They offered paid training. They offered transportation to job sites. The interview process was painless and smooth.

    Cons

    They did not offer paid time in order to use their transportation to and from job sites, often times this was hours before the job started, and hours after. Promotions at RGIS seemed to be based on favoritism and not actual work ethic and responsibility. There seemed to be many supervisors with very little actual supervision. They lack organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage. Try to understand that your employees are your greatest asset and reward accordingly. This isn't summer camp, this is a business.

    Pros

    The people you meet are all cool. Management is okay, they were once in your place so they kind of have a feel for what you do. Most work is done through the middle of the night and early morning.

    Cons

    No personal growth or proper training, the job might be easy and yes you learn on the job but pay is based on how fast you count. If you're going to a store that's far away you have to deal with somebody else' driving. They pay you enough to gas in your car to get to the next store to do inventory. Also they expect you to pull heavy merchandise, count it, then put it back...yet pay is based off how fast you count, -_-. There are multiple supervisors and they all have different ways of counting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the store is 30 minutes or more from the office provide transportation!!!!

    Pros

    If you let them know when you are available (mornings or nights) they will accommodate you. You get your schedule approximately 2 weeks in advance so you can let them know what days you're scheduled for that you can do and which ones you need removed from your schedule. You can get pay increases fairly quickly (I've gone up $3/hour in just 3 months) depending on your quickness and efficiency. IF the particular location is an hour or more from the office, you have an option to carpool and you get paid minimum wage for drive time.

    Cons

    Early morning hours can mean very early (sometimes 4 a.m.). You have to drive to each location yourself, so gas money can get out of control.

    Pros

    Busy work and some good clients to work with.

    Cons

    Unstable ability to manage employees and run an honest business using integrity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow the rules. Do what is right the first time. Use common sence. Your employees are not robots.

    Former Employee - Inventory Specialist in Greenville, SC (US)

    Pros

    Fairly flexible hours, get paid for having to travel more than an hour, easy work for decent pay

    Cons

    If you have a problem, any problem, the DM couldn't care any less. Between taking a vacation or two every month and pretending to be on conference calls when he is in the office, he's a horribly ineffective boss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care a little more about your employees and how the store managers treat them.

    Pros

    RGIS has a lot of perks. Base pay starts at 9/hr, but that could go up if you count quickly. They are very flexible and you can tell them that you can't make an event if they schedule you for one you can't/don't want to go to.

    Cons

    Every event starts either early in the morning or starts in the evening and goes late, often until past midnight. Also, there is quite a bit of driving involved. Often events are 45 min away, though if farther than 1 hr, than everyone meets at the office and uses company cars to get to the event. It can be a little nerve racking to have to count a certain number of pieces per hour, but ultimately I suppose there has to be some floor for the speed at which an auditor has to count otherwise inventories would take forever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management does a pretty good job, I was surprised at the how nice they were. Obviously, there are always certain individuals that just rub you the wrong way, but nothing too aggravating.

    Flexible hours. Pay is more than minimum wage

    Hours aren't steady. Pay doesn't compare to the work you do.

    9+ hours and no break can really take a toll on your employees
