    Good company

    Inventory Auditor (Current Employee) Fort Worth, TX

    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.

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

    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.

    No respect

    Area Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsFlexible schedule, easy to move up

    ConsHours are extreme during busy season, managers are overworked, everyone is underpaid, management does not value the employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive your managers an acceptable work load to help them assist those under them. Working a triple is unacceptable.

    An opportunity for growth.

    Inventory Taker (Current Employee) Jacksonville, FL

    ProsA company that hires within with fast track promotions. Team orientated that relies on the feeicientcy and accuracy for the employees.

    ConsLong hours at odd times of the day. Shifts that range from starting early mornings, 2:00am, to late nights, 9:00pm. Requires a vast amount of standing and concentration.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinuous training for the employees.

    The zen of black and white numbers

    Team Leader Top Gun (Current Employee) Tacoma, WA

    ProsI enjoy the fact that numbers are numbers. The only grey areas that arise are when the store is open and customers are shopping. Otherwise, It is what it is. This is a great job if you haven't taken time to explore your region and you get paid to window shop. Store personnel are almost always blown away by some aspect of your work (You're fast! Neat laser thing. You've been where?).
    There are plenty of opportunities to increase your pay with minimal increase in responsibility (unless that's what you're after). It's a global company. I moved from ND to WA with a simple transfer that kept my rank and the worst thing that happened was a I took a $.25 deduction. Not bad for having a job lined up right away. Moving up into management often requires a transfer to a new district (take that as you will).
    In ND, we had company vehicles to travel the district (the entire state and NW MN). Here in WA, you carpool with other people in their personal vehicles (a little awkward). You have the option of opting out of using your personal vehicle, though you get reimbursed for trips outside of 30mi.
    Only been in WA for a month, but in ND... strong friendships were built. (Love to my D64 peeps)

    ConsLong. Hours. You do not work 8-5 M-F. No. You work until the inventory is done. There are many inventories that are predictable and you can work with your boss to be let out by a set time if needed, but you have to be flexible. Not much of a job for those with children for this reason, but I have seen it done. Some store personnel have massive logs up where the sun doesn't shine. I mean, Massive Sequoia sized logs. They can be rude, mean, insulting and demeaning. You learn to identify and avoid, keep your head down and just get it over with.
    Also, don't bother with the medical benefits. It's a crap discount.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLets really step up the roll out of the new equipment and program. I've heard things down the pipe and have worked with the new program (Arctic Cat, TRF, MN). I can't wait to see it hit for real.

    Work/Life Balance fails due to huge amounts of turnover

    Area Manager (Current Employee) Denver, CO

    ProsGreat chance to enter the management world.

    ConsWork/Life Balance DOES NOT EXIST! You're on call 24/7 and sometime you have to work everyday. They say TIME WORK = TIME PAID. Does not exist for Full Time Employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop the turnover of management by limiting the stress those individuals put on. Value their worth and health over losing profits.
