I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at RGIS in March 2014.

Interview Details – The hiring and interview process is simple, not has formal as expected, and straight forward in terms of what the job entails. The day of the interview I was hired and started work two to three days later. It was simple however, people try to make it as hard as possible because of fear of competition. That's the bottom of the Line.

Inventory Takerer Interview

Inventory Takerer
Cleveland, OH

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at RGIS in March 2014.

Interview Details – Submitted application for position online - two days later I received an email asking me to select a time to come in for an interview.
The interview was really not an interview, you watched a video, were asked if you had any questions, and then you filled out a sheet where you wrote down your availability.
Did have a one on one meeting with the person (she was very nice) and she scheduled a training session for later in that week.

Interview Question – There weren't any questions as it wasn't truly an interview, they were more interested in your availability to work.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiations at all. Starting pay is $9.00 and hour, however if you build up your speed it appears that you can VERY quickly be at $12.00 an hour.

Inventory Taker Interview

Inventory Taker
Memphis, TN

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at RGIS in February 2014.

Interview Details – I filled out an application online and took a demo counting test, Was contacted for an interview within three days; interview was scheduled online at your leisure. The interview consisted of a group, four at most, watching a video going over the basics of how everything works. The interviewer was very kind and further explained anything you had questions on.
After the video you were called one by one into an office and went over your availability and history and was hired on the spot. Went home and checked my email and filled out the last of the paperwork.

Interview Question – There was none. All questions were common.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – You agree or you don't get the position. Pay is set and seems to be easy to move up with dedication.

Part-time Inventory Taker Interview

Part-time Inventory Taker
Riverside, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at RGIS in January 2014.

Interview Details – Responded to internet job board posting. Was contacted next day for next day interview, was told to bring 2 forms of identification. I got there and there was a couple other candidates in a room at a table, where we eventually watched a DVD with the hiring person who paused it after each section about travel, safety, benefits and salary, duties, etc. It wasn't that bad of a job, and I learned that it was basically all shifts which started at 9-10pm, or 5-6am, and you travel up to 50 miles from the location of the office without reimbursement. Ok, commercial shopping stores of different types and what not. He said several times how it is considered "part-time" because the hours fluctuate and the hours are "flexible" because your schedule changes on a bi-weekly basis. If the advertisement says flexible hours, realize that they expect you to be fully available for day and night shifts and not to have schedule conflicts. After the video there was a one-on-one interview- I was thinking I might not have availability for a couple shifts per week but that overall I had a lot of availability. I made the mistake of telling him this and he decided not to make me an offer. Just know if you go in there that you have to not have any scheduling problems and just say Yes I'm available and No I have no conflicts, otherwise they will not hire you.

Interview Question – What is your availability like? This is not an unexpected question, but I didn't expect it to make or break my receiving a job offer.   View Answers (2)

Inventory Taker Interview

Inventory Taker
Easton, MD

I applied online - interviewed at RGIS in December 2013.

Interview Details – I took the preliminary tests online, as well as the normal application process. Then, I received an email asking for me to confirm an interview time, as well as an address to go to. I chose the earlier time, but the address seemed off; it was for the UNUMployment Office (their spelling) in a neighborhood that I knew had nothing of the sort around there.

But I went there, it being hard to find in an industrial area, and it turned out to be a private business. The secretary knew nothing about interviews happening for RGIS. So, on a hunch, I went to the Dept. of Social Services Office (different part of town) and they sent me across the street to the Employment Office, where I was told to wait in the conference room, which was empty and dark. After about five minutes, a woman comes in, talking on her cell phone to someone from the company (i didn't bring their #), saying the same thing to her that happened to me. She asked me to talk to her, as the company lady insisted on us going to the wrong address. She asked me for my cell # and talked to me directly, asking me the address of where we were. So I gave it. Another woman shows up after going through the same.

Finally, the District Manager shows up, offers no apologies, goes through a spiel, shows a video, asks if we have any questions, then offers us all jobs. We accept. More paperwork.
She was rude and surly.

I get sent an employee handbook, read it and send back email confirmation.

Then, I get a message from a RGIS man on my phone. I call back, and he tells me where & when the training starts. I agree. I show up, wait a half hour. Nobody. I call his #. He starts some stuff about how there has been a change of plans, but then starts contradicting himself, saying the training is in a city two hours away... I got frustrated and hung up. Made little or no sense. Did I mention it was early in the AM and I had driven 45 minutes already? And that this guy had no professionalism over the phone?

Bad experience!

Interview Question – The only questions asked were on the application. It really was more of a briefing.   Answer Question

Inventory Taker Interview

Inventory Taker
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at RGIS.

Interview Details – I applied online and received an email within 24 hours. It gave me a few options for interview dates and times for the upcoming three days. For this location in Manhattan, I went to their office where there were two other people there. We watched a video about what the job entails and were later asked to meet with the manager one on one, which I thought would be more of an interview, but instead she simply asked for my availability and basically told me I was hired. Quick and painless process.

Interview Question – What is your availability?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation- the base pay is $9 and then its based on your performance
