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

    Pros

    You can work at your own pace, so if you are the type that likes to get in there work by yourself and not be bothered you can do fairly well. Even tho you are on a team it changes from job to job and you work pretty independently. The supervisors working with you on-site are much more helpful than the staff you don't directly interact with.

    Cons

    They stick the slower work to the new employees and give the higher paid ones the tools to work faster, so it's hard to get the pay promotions that seem so appealing to begin with. You get a short training session, and once they hire you they seem to want nothing to do with you other than for you to show up to whatever job they give you, which fairly often will end up being a 4am job 90 minutes away. You need to be extremely flexible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If your primary form of contact to your employees is through email, you should actually be able to respond to emails from your employees. I shouldn't have to email you six times before getting in contact with you. Send some sort of confirmation so I don't feel completely unheard.

    Home Depot teams versus local teams

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

    Pros

    The pay for home depot teams is actually higher than the local districts. Option of transferring when moving to another place. Stable hours for depot unless there was a blackout versus the local team's unpredictable hours. Meet people of all backgrounds. Get to travel to various states. U get what u put in.

    Cons

    The pay is not kept when transferring to another districts. They put you in the crappiest hotels that are usually 30 minutes away from the Home Depot you have to count, that are infested with bedbugs. Scheduling for home depot is consistent whereas the local stores put it out on the beginning of the week and constantly changes it. Transferring into another district I was constantly overlooked and given no pieces while their people got good pieces, even tho I counted much faster than their top guns. Team Leaders are a joke in local stores. They have too much favoritism and don't do their job well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    figure out a way to exclude set up hours from actual counting day's aph. treat your coworkers better. hire better managers and assistant managers!

    Pros

    Good money if your a fast counter. You make more money traveling. You get full holiday weeks off. You don't work weekends on the traveling team unless you help another team for support.

    Cons

    Per diem pay is low. Shows alot of favoritism. Not good to travel if your a slow counter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit showing favortism. Put people where their supposed to be in the right flow.

    Pros

    Fairly flexible hours, get paid for having to travel more than an hour, easy work for decent pay

    Cons

    If you have a problem, any problem, the DM couldn't care any less. Between taking a vacation or two every month and pretending to be on conference calls when he is in the office, he's a horribly ineffective boss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care a little more about your employees and how the store managers treat them.

    Team leader with several years of experience

    Current Employee - Team Leader
    Current Employee - Team Leader

    I have been working at RGIS part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Honestly, the pros are a little limited. They have flexible hours (when the district manager can remember your availability), they have decent pay for a first job, and they give raises based purely off of performance.

    Cons

    The long and unpredictable hours can be horrible, I've personally worked 100+ hour weeks for two months straight only to have about 9 weeks without any hours what so ever later in the year. The management usually has no idea what's going on in their district, I've seen a district manager (much more involved than in most companies, the district manager handles scheduling and hiring for every employee in the district) ask somebody they interviewed only a week before what district they were with. Terrible communication from district managers and area managers down to the team leaders (the people actually running most inventories, on whom most problems are blamed), such as not telling them if someone has called out on a shift even when the management was told more than a week in advance. District management tends to hired from outside of the company instead of within, leading to a massive disconnect with what's actually happening in inventories and what's actually possible for someone to do with the people scheduled. Lesser experienced people that are only passable in inventories as far as speed and accuracy go are often in charge of training new hires, leading to newer people having to basically be retrained in active inventories by supervisors that are already worrying about the budgeted hours for the store, trying to make sure productivity is higher than the stated requirement, trying to communicate with store managers and trying to make sure everybody else in the store is moving through the store in the proper way. Broad ranking categories (which show a supervisor and the higher management what somebody is capable of doing efficiency wise, as well as determining pay rate) are horribly broad, leading to one person potentially being more than twice as somebody else, despite them sharing the same rank. Performance based raises are determined by the counters average per hour (APH), meaning it's very hard for someone in a supervisory role to get a raise, as well as meaning that a malicious supervisor can put somebody in specifically chosen areas just to keep their APH down so they won't get a raise. The equipment (whhat little there is) is always in a state of disrepair, mostly due to the fact that the company has been trying to change to entirely new machines (a process that for over three years is always going to happen the next quarter) due to this, other districts will steal equipment from each other any time there is a split store, and many team leads will take equipment home with them, not leaving enough for other stores that might be running.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers that actually know the job, and can communicate effectively. Revamp the pay scale to account for people that may not be fast enough to currently get a raise, but are dependable and accurate. Either get more equipment or change over to the new machines immediately, you're only hurting the productivity (and therefor profit) of events this way. Have people that actually do the job well do training for new hires (maybe actually have one person per district do nothing but that, like you used to, and have been talking and bout doing again). Set APH requirements to reasonable levels, we all know that a 10.5% increase in pay doesn't require a 120% increase in productivity to make up for the extra cost.

    Pros

    If you like a change in scenary and looking to loose some weight.. Great job!

    Cons

    The pay is not good enough and the mileage put on your vehicle you are not compensated for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers and supervisors need to learn how to talk to employees. The scheduler does not schedule efficiently either. Better pay would lower turnover as well as sensitivity training for management.
