    Works with your schedule

    Inventory Expert (Current Employee) Aurora, CO (US)

    ProsIf 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.

    ConsEarly 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Interesting

    Inventory Auditor (Current Employee) Miami, FL (US)

    ProsFlexible hours. Pay is more than minimum wage

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

    Advice to Senior Management9+ hours and no break can really take a toll on your employees

    Good company

    Inventory Auditor (Current Employee) Fort Worth, TX (US)

    ProsRGIS 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.

    ConsEvery 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 Senior ManagementManagement 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.

    It's a job

    Inventory Taker (Former Employee) Warner Robins, GA (US)

    ProsThe actual work is fairly easy, the unorthodox schedule works in your favor sometimes.

    ConsUnusual scheduling every week, low pay, maintaining APH.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider not showing so much favoritism.

    Great job and pay; too bad the manager doesn't care

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

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

    ConsIf 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 Senior ManagementCare a little more about your employees and how the store managers treat them.

    Team leader with several years of experience

    Team Leader (Current Employee)

    ProsHonestly, the pros are a little limited. They have flexible hours (when the district manager can remember your availability), they have decent pay for a first job, and they give raises based purely off of performance.

    ConsThe long and unpredictable hours can be horrible, I've personally worked 100+ hour weeks for two months straight only to have about 9 weeks without any hours what so ever later in the year. The management usually has no idea what's going on in their district, I've seen a district manager (much more involved than in most companies, the district manager handles scheduling and hiring for every employee in the district) ask somebody they interviewed only a week before what district they were with. Terrible communication from district managers and area managers down to the team leaders (the people actually running most inventories, on whom most problems are blamed), such as not telling them if someone has called out on a shift even when the management was told more than a week in advance. District management tends to hired from outside of the company instead of within, leading to a massive disconnect with what's actually happening in inventories and what's actually possible for someone to do with the people scheduled. Lesser experienced people that are only passable in inventories as far as speed and accuracy go are often in charge of training new hires, leading to newer people having to basically be retrained in active inventories by supervisors that are already worrying about the budgeted hours for the store, trying to make sure productivity is higher than the stated requirement, trying to communicate with store managers and trying to make sure everybody else in the store is moving through the store in the proper way. Broad ranking categories (which show a supervisor and the higher management what somebody is capable of doing efficiency wise, as well as determining pay rate) are horribly broad, leading to one person potentially being more than twice as somebody else, despite them sharing the same rank. Performance based raises are determined by the counters average per hour (APH), meaning it's very hard for someone in a supervisory role to get a raise, as well as meaning that a malicious supervisor can put somebody in specifically chosen areas just to keep their APH down so they won't get a raise. The equipment (whhat little there is) is always in a state of disrepair, mostly due to the fact that the company has been trying to change to entirely new machines (a process that for over three years is always going to happen the next quarter) due to this, other districts will steal equipment from each other any time there is a split store, and many team leads will take equipment home with them, not leaving enough for other stores that might be running.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire managers that actually know the job, and can communicate effectively. Revamp the pay scale to account for people that may not be fast enough to currently get a raise, but are dependable and accurate. Either get more equipment or change over to the new machines immediately, you're only hurting the productivity (and therefor profit) of events this way. Have people that actually do the job well do training for new hires (maybe actually have one person per district do nothing but that, like you used to, and have been talking and bout doing again). Set APH requirements to reasonable levels, we all know that a 10.5% increase in pay doesn't require a 120% increase in productivity to make up for the extra cost.

    Not enough money for all the work and travel you do.

    Anonymous (Former Employee) Indianapolis, IN (US)

    ProsIf you like a change in scenary and looking to loose some weight.. Great job!

    ConsThe pay is not good enough and the mileage put on your vehicle you are not compensated for.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagers and supervisors need to learn how to talk to employees. The scheduler does not schedule efficiently either. Better pay would lower turnover as well as sensitivity training for management.

    Everyone wants to be boss

    Inventory Auditor (Former Employee) Pittsburgh, PA (US)

    ProsYou drive a lot so you get to know the area if you just moved.

    ConsManagement is very inconsistent. They seem to not know what it is like to be an employee and get upset when you quit.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart from scratch even if you loose some clients at first it is better than loosing them permanently because you don't have a proper staff.
