    I have been working at RGIS full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Being a manager the only pro is you dont have to use your own car to do all the driving that is expected of you.

    Cons

    Managers dont get paid near enough for the amount of work they are expected to do, if you are interested in management with this company, I'd think again. The pay is horrible, and you're expected to not have a life outside of work. you're expected to work pretty much 24/7, and be lucky if you get one day off a week. You also never have time to spend with family. Definitely not worth all the stress and hours that managers put into this job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the upper management, care more about your area managers, don't overwork them.

    I worked at RGIS part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Very simple hiring process. Most of the people there are from low income families with the occasional working high school or college student so most of the employees are humbled and nice.

    Cons

    The culture there is very high-stress with most of the managers continuously pushing you to have a count-speed above reality and they love to pervade this notion that if you are below this you will be let go. The reality is the place is too much of a revolving door as it is and they don't fire the people (like myself) who are below their imaginary line. What really got to me in the end and ultimately made me quit was the 50 to 70 year old employees who were pushing themselves extremely hard to keep their numbers up from this stress created by the management. The ironic thing is the only people who move up in the company and the ones with the least amount of stress are the ones who simply don't check their work. Doing a recount is extremely costly to how your performance is rated and there's absolutely nothing stopping you from just not checking that your counts are right. These people go on to get promoted then do their best to subtly encourage their staff to do the same. Also hours can be EXTREMELY difficult to work with. I worked a job starting at 11pm one night and mid-day the following day. Overnight work is very common since that's when stores are usually closed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some human compassion. This company incentivizes a working culture that shortens peoples life-spans and it's frankly disgusting.

    Pros

    Never in the same place. Get to travel.

    Cons

    The pay sucks for the amount of work effort you have to put forth. You don't get paid for travel if it's within the district. So, basically if you have a job 40 minutes away from home and the job is less than 2 hrs long, you didn't even make enough to compensate the gas money you used to get there. A 2nd job is definitely needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    STOP PLAYING FAVORITES WITH THE APH's! Giving the easy counts to people just so they can keep up their numbers is bull. Not cool! Knock it off and do your job as it is set forth by the company.

    Pros

    They offer a very flexible schedule if that's what you are looking for. You can also be promoted very quickly based on your performance.

    Cons

    The times available to work are horrible. You MUST own reliable transportation. Also, you can't earn a living off of this job year round because there isn't much work available around the holiday season.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't play favorites and treat your employees with more respect.

    I worked at RGIS part-time (less than a 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?
