    I worked at RGIS

    Pros

    They give you a free shirt. You can refuse the work--but it is frowned upon. Very flexible Hours.

    Cons

    They send you a p/t schedule two weeks ahead of time. Usually 2-3 days in a two week period. You spend a majority of your time driving to the venue and work only 3 hrs.and at various times of night and day.., mostly when the store is closed. My first paycheck I used for gas and lost money. I would not recommend you wasting your time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People should be encouraged to carpool and pay is not enough. $10. an hr. would make it worthwhile and dont get annoyed when people don't want to drive an hr to make $16. dollars. It is very disrespectful. Answer your phones and e-mails.

    I worked at RGIS

    Pros

    Hired at the end of 2013, and worked 8 months. RGIS is owned by the multi-national firm Blackstone, a venture capitalist group. Every district is different, hundreds of them, because the District and Area Managers operate per their own personalities. That is, great areas to atrocious.
    If you want to whine about hours and work schedule, that's RGIS policy and you agree to it. I heard about conditions before Blackstone and it sounded like a decent company. What I experienced was: falsifying my auditor level on customer's sheets, weird and incomprehensible pay system and pay stub, supervisors who were vindictive and belittled employees, phone and computer time unpaid, poor training. Consistently my pay was less than my recorded work hours.
    Supplementing my RGIS pay with unemployment worked out to 40hrs at minimum wage. The higher auditor levels make more money and it could be a nice job if it suits your lifestyle.

    Cons

    But it seems you have to sell your soul if you want to make this company a career.

    I worked at RGIS part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours. Fast promotions. You can hit the wage cap quickly if you pay attention to your work and don't mess around.

    Cons

    Tremendously erratic work hours. Hours are also highly variable. Work often involves changing height all the time such as going up and down ladders and anything down the ground. Store managers (Non RGIS) tend to be incompetent when it comes to having an inventory done. Turn over rate for this job is exceptionally high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people. If a job is understaffed, stop making the same mistake several times in a row.

    Don't skirt the law and skip lunches for the workers.

    I have been working at RGIS

    Pros

    The office staff in my district were great. And you get to travel and see new parts of the state you live in.

    Cons

    Where do I begin..First off Our district pay starts at $7.50 and caps at $16. Stepping up in to a supervisor position will cost you your asset level causing you a drop in pay. No holiday pay or overtime pay. Dont ask for time off or they deliberately cut you out of the schedule. No time between stores during busy season. And you can forget about any labor laws being followed. They have been sued and still continue to disregard safty and labor requirements. I could go on for hours about the down side of this company. Sad part is that i really enjoy doing inventory, and working in management. This is just not a great company to work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your upper level management better. Work towards downward communication, improve safty and ethical standards. Think of those who are the visual aspect of your company when decisions are made about them. We are the ones out in the field and interacting with the customers, but we are the first to be mistreated, under paid, and have our benefits or pay cut. We have to put food on the table at home as well. Cost of living as increased tremendously in my area and our current base pay is less than those working for Walmart or Mc Donalds.

    Pros

    Once you get an interview the job is yours. I've worked for this company twice in 2 different states left running out the door both times.

    Cons

    Hours super late or super early. If you have real bills this like myself this job isnt for you cause the pay is garbage

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I dont have any advice for management because I never had a problem with them. For me this job is a last resort and thats exactly what I used it as both times.

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

    Pros

    The former district before being consolidated with another one was pretty good. Different scenery and things are a little different everyday. Mindless work really.

    Cons

    Boss does not always do a very good job with working with your availability. Not a great schedule...it's usually very early in the morning or late at night. Hard to know your actual schedule and how to plan around this job because it is always different and you never know when you will be done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The flat across the board pay rates are horrible. It is almost impossible to accurately achieve 'Top Gun". The first time I worked for your company it was still private and there was none of that, we actually got raises like a normal job. I always felt like you expected an awful lot out of someone for an unreliable part time job.

    Pros

    It got me out of the house.

    Cons

    It would be easy to spend my entire paycheck on gasoline just to get to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow employees to choose their shift from a posted calendar. Many shifts could be filled, and everyone's schedules could be better accommodated.
    It would also help if management actually listened to the employees' concerns instead of dismissing everyone.
