    Pros

    It's a job... During busy seasons it can have incredible overtime capabilities

    Cons

    They make you use your own vehicle and there is no compensation. Starts as minimum wage and rarely gets better. You are only guaranteed 2 hours of work per job. Your life IS RGIS.

    Advice to Management

    Restructuring would be best... If not, completely burn the business to the ground... Better than Washington, but not by much... You promote the wrong ideals within and tell the customer otherwise. Then there is the treatment of employees by telling them to hit their numbers by any means necessary and then screaming at them when they do, because they get caught by the customer as miscounting; or batch counting single scan items... It is ridiculous...

    Pros

    Flexible Hours, Friendly people, No real pressure, laid back atmosphere, different place everyday!

    Cons

    Low pay, lots of crazy hours, lots of driving your own car, incompetent management, high turnover, company doesn't care about workers or involve them in decisions! Basically nobody wants to be in management because its low pay and long hours so you don't have the best and brightest going into management...its basically the suckers who want to slave for nothing!

    Advice to Management

    Not that they would ever take my advice...but... if your employees do not feel like they are a part of the structure or that they have input into the company you will never get the best out of them.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, car pools, friendly & interesting staff, part time or full time schedules, 99% of shifts are indoors, virtually everyone is hired. Your interview is 100% an orientation. They don't filter employees, they mass hire in groups in a group "interview".

    Cons

    Inconsistent to non-existent new-hire training, non-competitive wages, inconsistent management, favoritism, low quality work tools, conflicting expectations, inconsistent pay check, low quality and poorly fitted uniform (RGIS polo shirt, tucked in) the polo is of such low quality, it will never fit correctly (sizes run large so get a medium if you normally wear large) and is of non breathable material...so you will sweat through your entire shift even in air conditioned rooms. Did I mention low wages? There is almost no inventive to stay and promotions do not provide sufficient raises. A management promotion will work you to exhaustion and will (if you do the math) pay you less than entry level or a team lead. I made more money as a teenager working at Best Buy. Between the job itself and the wages, there is a very high turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better uniforms, wearing dress pants is an unrealistic expectation because you will get dirty and sweat while working in warehouses or grocery stores. The work tools are extremely inconsistent. Finger scanners aren't always available which directly affects your numbers and directly affects your pay check (unacceptable). Complaining about your tools will get you nothing.
    It's an unreasonable expectation for individuals to work quickly if they don't have the tools necessary to do the job. Extremely low wages, you will make more money bagging groceries or flipping burgers. As a result, there aren't any incentives to stay long term. If you do get promoted through performance, they're in very small increments and requires a certain level of dishonesty (incentives to cheat). The fastest auditors know how to game the system in order to reach the expected numbers. Also, cheating the system causes higher expectations for all other employees that are working honestly. As a result, mistakes are made, sometimes on a large scale. Entire sections are needed to be rechecked or sections are incorrectly scanned altogether. This is not only against what management preaches, but it also is a major disservice to the client. Don't ask employees to be accurate if you really want them to simply inventory items faster. It's just a bold face lie. To the employees and the clients.

    Pros

    Easy to get hired on. Very simple interviews. Starting wage is usually above that of minimum wage.

    Cons

    Claim that it is quick to get promotions, but in reality everything hinges on how well your machine works as an auditor and how well your managers like you. Sometimes favoritism can outweigh actual job proficiency.

    Pros

    Room for growth into management, decent pay at the salaried level, company car provided at management levels.

    Cons

    Poor treatment of hourly workers. Having started there as an hourly employee, I witnessed all levels of treatment. The hourly wages, hours available, and overall quality of life was enough to drive you either up through the ranks, or out the door looking for anything else. Once you get into salary level, upper management wanted you find ways to cut costs and that was usually at the expense of your employees well being. Yes, you feel bad having come from that point that you are essentially screwing over the position you used to be in, but the threat of not doing so and losing your job far outweighed that feeling.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that the employees make the company and that fair treatment will get you farther than anything else.

    Pros

    Made some very good friends here. Reinforced my need to get job skills I did not have before so I could get a better job outside of this company. Gained leadership skills by learning what not to do.

    Cons

    When current management company bought this company, MANY experienced long term employees took HUGE pay cuts, myself included. The ones who stayed, have very low morale.
    The company promotes ACCURACY to their clients; but pushes the employees to go faster and faster, which actually makes things less accurate. Employees get raises based on speed, not accuracy. This encourages people to guess and estimate. They are losing customers because of accuracy issues.

    Unpredictable hours, lots of travel, little appreciation. Lots of broken promises.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like real people, not just numbers.
    Give REAL benefits, paid sick time, and vacation time.
    Go on "Undercover Boss" and try to do the job you expect your employees to do on a daily basis; and talk to some of the people employees who's pay you cut.
    Going faster without accuracy is NOT efficiency.

    Pros

    Huge opportunity for growth, diverse work pool, every day is challenging . Bonus structure is good and pay is decent.

    Cons

    Zero work life balance, revolving door employment that only values most employees as a number .
    I was encouraged to lie, cheat and steal from my employees at every turn and there were many shady ethical practices in not 1 but all 3 offices that I was apart of in separate states.

    Advice to Management

    Please tighten hiring policies and pay attention to middle management. There is an layer of upper management that all bad decisions stem and they are causing the company a lot of money.

    Pros

    Easy to get hired
    Quick to get into the grove of things
    Different stores for lots of variety
    most of the time you see the same people

    Cons

    No set schedule
    No benefits except for 'market', haven't used
    Once off the schedule for school I still haven't been able to get back on the schedule, even though I'm technically still with RGIS

    Advice to Management

    Don't lead your employees around. If you have a problem, say something! Don't tell them that you'll call back but don't.

    Pros

    Overall it is a pretty simple job. You go from store to store taking the inventory on a 10-key machine. Once you are done, you go home.

    Cons

    I don't like the fact that the schedule is not constant. There are no set hours. Also the hours that you actually work are not long enough. You may go in and only work 3 hours.
