    I have been working at RGIS part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    RGIS is a superb organization that has many opportunities worldwide. It is an excellent opportunity for both recent high school and college graduates as well as experienced employees. Advancement to supervisory responsibilities are excellent for those who are diligent and desire management level .One of the best reasons to work for RGIS is the relative ease in which employees can transfer to other locations if they are relocating.

    Cons

    No cons that I can come up with.

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

    I worked at RGIS full-time for less than a year

    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

    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.

    I have been working at RGIS

    Pros

    You get to travel o different cities and work with new people or people you haven't seen in a while. They pay is OK, could be better. It was better a few years ago.

    Cons

    Management is very unorganized when it comes to having vehicles ready for us to leave the meet site and when it comes to scheduling people to work. They have certain people pull doubles while others sit at home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Schedule better, organize better, communicate better!!!

    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

    Flexible hours. Pay is more than minimum wage

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at RGIS part-time for less than a year

    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.

    I have been working at RGIS part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, sometimes challenging, (if you like a challenge),

    Cons

    Usually, the schedule is too flexible. Sometimes early mornings, sometimes late nights, sometimes both in the same day. Can be very physically demanding due to limited breaks. Too much favoritism and unfairness. Pay is not great so there is a very high turn over leaving those of us with any amount of work ethics to pick up the slack and often times going to inventory events with less than enough people to pull it off in a timely manner. The way the pay raises work is based on a very unfair system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Absolutely change the way pay raises work. And make the starting pay higher. This will lower your turnover rate. And absolutely stop with the favoritism. You lose too many good, talented people due to the favoritism and low pay. You also wind up with a lot of sub par employees when you hire people at $8.00 an hour, employees that don't stay more than a few days to a month at the most.
