    Pros

    Fairly free schedule, and the abillity to turn down jobs that you can not make due to scheduling concerns. Can be rewarding if you get into managerial roles and have the ability to handle the high levels of stress. Get to work with a wide variety of people, since you will work hand-in-hand with the staff at the stores you inventory.

    Cons

    To succeed at this role, you need to be able to thrive in an extremely stressful environment while following a schedule that can change radically day by day. In addition, you will put an incrediblle number of miles on your car going to jobs 55 minutes away, with neither pay nor carpooling available until a 60 minute transit. Finally, you will constantly have junior managers breathing down your neck about your APM rate, while at the same time store staff follows you around triple-checking your work for the smallest difference.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the number of 55 minute commutes by any means necessary. Reduce the pressure on junior management.

    Pros

    "Ray, how many toothpicks fell on the floor?" "256--definitely 256". If you love numbers and counting above all else, and count fast this is your job. Each day is different. Find bargains.

    Cons

    Low pay. Low benefits. Erratic hours, in the middle of the night or very early in morning. January work like a dog. Nov-Dec. hardly work at all. Job is probably the most boring in the world. Also very tiring--on your feet and bending and kneeling & climbing ladders. Breaks are short. Equipment doesn't always work well, so this hurts your APH productivity and moving up in pay rank. Productivity expectations are very difficult to achieve in some stores, especially since a few counters are consistantly given the easiest areas. Getting to distant jobs involves a lot of driving. If you drive your own car, you spend lots on gas which is uncompensated. On short jobs you might lose money.

    Advice to Management

    Higher pay. Higher benefits. Let everyone have a fair chance to count the easy areas. Let auditors wear headphone radios to relieve boredom. Will increase accuracy since you won't fall asleep from boredom.

    Pros

    Flexible hours. That is it.

    Cons

    No paid training. Lucky if you get even 12 hours a week. Hours can be sporadic and exhausting. They treat employees like poop.

    Pros

    The only pros are if you don't like dealing with customers you work alone. 2/3 of the time they will drive you to stores 45 miles + away.

    Cons

    Management is unfriendly and treats staff poorly. Your schedule changes every week. You don't know how many hours you will work for the day. Sometimes you have to drive up to an hour and are not compensated for it. If you work an hour away and have to drive you may only work two hours so all you did was work for your gas money. It's not a fun work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Try treating the staff the way you would want to be treated and show a little recognition and show interest in them as people. You'll have employees who will appreciate you and you will have a more positive work environment and the good employees will be committed and you will have a lower staff turnover. The equipment doesn't work some of the time and your employees are afraid to approach you to ask for help because they feel they are blamed for malfunctioning equipment. This could be a great company if you made it a little more fun and positive and took a little interest in your staff. Your counts arnt good because you push employees to rush so their more worried about making their quota than having an accurate count.

    I worked at RGIS

    Pros

    Quick & easy job to get, if you can count.

    Cons

    Low pay for the amount of physical work entailed. As well as for the amount of gas used for the distance traveled to inventory locations. Hours can be very stressful. Need to be at stores to start inventory, before the stores open, understandable, but yet was out doing inventory the night before until wee hours of the morning. No sleep.
