    I worked at RGIS part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I retired from full-time work in July, and the mostly evening and night assignments allowed me to keep my days free for golf.

    Cons

    Where to start? When I was hired, I was led to believe that I'd be working in an area close to my home. But only 2 of my first six assignments were in that area. When they scheduled me for two inventories that were over an hour away from home, I called to question it but was essentially told that "we schedule you where we need you". That was enough for me, and I resigned that day.
    Pay is pretty weak (start at $9.50 an hour), and the training is a joke. For my first couple of inventories, I was pretty much thrown to the wolves. Then the managers get ticked off because I ask questions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training needs to be significantly better. Also, why tell a new hire that he'll be working in one area, but then schedule him elsewhere (farther away) most of the time?

    Pros

    This is the perfect job for those few people that would rather spend their lives being with loved ones and doing things that inspire their soul rather than spending their life working monday through Friday 9 to 5 every week of of every year for the rest of their life.

    Cons

    Odd hours some traveling /carpooling

    I worked at RGIS part-time

    Pros

    Independent work, once you're at job. Opportunity to work flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Where should I begin? I worked here for three and a half years, supervisors are often rude, upper management doesn't value you as an employee, my particular district manager had a serious selective listening problem. I worked overnights, during snowstorms, was at jobs where the supervisor literally screamed at my team in front of store staff. I had an incident where another supervisor wanted to ask me a question after a job, meanwhile, my car had broken down and I ran down my cell phone battery trying to call for a tow truck. When I finally returned home, and was able to contact this supervisor; he made it obvious I was bothering him and wasting his time, because it was hours later. He had no concern for my welfare. Supervisors and district managers play favorites and are suddenly unavailable when you really need them. Many workers and supervisors in my district were widely known to be drug abusers, nothing was ever done. I asked for time off for a vacation FOUR months ahead of schedule, and my district manager never seemed to remember that I had asked him; even texting me the day I left (while I was at the airport) asking me to come in early. I actually developed a chronic health problem during my work here, due to the over night work. Lastly, I was never able tor get a raise,(apparently I wasn't "fast" enough) and when I asked this company to move around my hours so that I could go back to school, they did not. So I quit, followed two weeks later by a letter from the company office stated that I was terminated. Thanks a lot, RGIS.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN, and at least attempt to value your employees, even the ones who work part-time. You have lives outside work, and we do also.

    Pros

    They ire anybody who will show up!

    Cons

    Long travel to work site, varying schedule ( may start at 4:15 am one day and 10:00 pm the next or worse visa versa). Expected to work without breaks, no matter how long the job takes. This is to make the supervisor look good to the store and to RGIS management,. There is NO consideration for the auditors. We sometimes work in very hot conditions and need a break to at least get something to drink! This company is preying on those of us who are having a difficult time finding employment. I have tried to reach Human Resources without any luck, but I will keep trying.

    I worked at RGIS part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You can earn a raise depending on how fast you are and the schedule is pretty flexible.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the cons largely outweigh the pros.. Training is useless and doesn't actually prepare you for on-sight, they forget what hours aren't available to you (and seem upset when you remind them), no one is willing to help you when you're confused because they're under pressure to keep up their APH, they stress accuracy but are mad when you don't maintain a certain APH - which causes stress and inaccuracy. In my district in particular, parts of the management team were sarcastic and rude when asking questions, which is largely unprofessional.
    Overall, a job that makes you dread every day you have to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why bother? They're too cheap and stuck in their ways to listen.

    I have been working at RGIS part-time (more than an 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.

    I worked at RGIS full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, most people you work with are nice.

    Cons

    very late hours if you work night or very early hours if you work morning. Pay scale is unfair. If you do a favor for management then you might as well sign a death wish because the favors with zero appreciation will never stop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Salary based on the level of speed is totally ridiculous. As a supervisor I saw that the only people in many different districts that I visited, the only people capable of hitting "Top Gun" were the ones that were batching and not counting at 100% accuracy. This includes Home depots and especially Dollar Trees. The amount of dishonesty that is forced to put forth to reach an unattainable goal by normal means was what forced me to quit and never look back. I loved working for RGIS before they had started that salary policy.
