Pros

The interview process is extremely easy; essentially all you have to do is show up for the interview and you're hired.

Cons

This is not an environment in which there is opportunity for advancement. You are a number on a page, assigned to a specific task for which you will not receive adequate training. Management does not take suggestions for process changes seriously. The management team lacks leadership skills.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn to treat your employees with respect and as more than just a number on a page. When multiple team members bring up concerns about a supervisor, do not treat them like they're making it up - obviously the problem is not solely with the employees when multiple people are saying the same things about their shift supervisor to their department supervisor.

    Current Employee - Inventory Auditor in Londonderry, NH

    I have been working at RGIS part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Meeting a few really amazing people; I've been very close with a handful of coworkers and feel truly lucky to have met them.
    The job in and of itself has no pros.

    Cons

    Basically everything about this job, besides the fact that you are working and therefore making money.
    Every week you can expect to bring home anywhere between $100 and $350 as an auditor. You'd only make $350 for working overtime (40 hours or more).
    Management promotes based on favoritism and/or being related to the manager (family ties). It's absurd but if you're the child or sibling of someone higher up, you'll get better areas and more promotions.
    Driving takes a huge toll on your car and really seems to be more expensive than not driving to locations. However, once you sign up as a driver, they make it nearly impossible for you to get out of it, even if absolutely necessary.
    Most of the managers look at you as if you're a slave. They have zero respect for people making a complaint here or there or even appearing upset. They belittle your feelings (of having to sleep, eat, or use the bathroom) as if they are not important to survival. They will not promote you if you talk at all during your shift; mind you, you may be working up to 12 hours at certain locations but you are not to speak with anyone even if it is appropriate, about work, and they are directly next to you. They reward people for cheating with their APH (batching) yet claim that batching is an atrocity and something that never occurs. Don't ask for promotions or anything for that matter, or you'll be viewed as weak. Don't tell them you are seeking out another job (even if you are) because they will be overly offended and not understand that no one can survive on $200/wk without government assistance. I'm pretty sure management is unaware that many of their employees above college age are on food stamps, so they don't understand the trials of their employees.
    The job is dangerous to your overall health. 99% of the people that have worked at RGIS for more than a few months are overweight, if not morbidly obese. It's probably due to the fact that they are forced to eat whatever fast food joint is closest to any given location.
    The job itself is unsafe due to lack of training with working very high up on ladders and handling large objects. Warehouses are the worst; you'll get sick from all the dust (and the likely asbestos and other that is in them).
    Unlike any other job in the job market, taking initiative at RGIS is a terrible idea. Managers are threatened by it and attempt to demote confident and risk-taking individuals while promoting antisocial individuals who listen to everything they're told to do.
    I'm pretty sure that many of the working conditions are illegal, such as not being told that you will be inventory-ing a plant section that's outside for 30 minutes in 20 degree weather while it's sleeting. Or refusing someone a bathroom break after they've worked for 6 hours because "We'll be done really soon" (which typically means you'll be done in another 3 hours or more). Or making it difficult for an employee to take a lunch break because then they'll have to sign out of the TCA which is apparently a huge chore for the manager and taking lunch will apparently make the store take so much longer to do...not.
    Also, the more work experience you have, the more managing experience you have, and the more schooling you have means the less likely you'll move up at all. It makes no sense that the most overqualified employees are the worst paid ones with the worst jobs.
    It's the worst job I've ever had and I've had several different types of jobs that were challenging. There's nothing challenging about RGIS. It's boring, degrading, and sucks the life and happiness out of you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating your employees like crap. We're people, not robots. Allow breaks like any other retail job rather than punishing people for using the bathroom and eating a snack. Make a schedule that makes sense for a human being! Give each worker all morning shifts for the week or all night shifts. The reason auditors miscount items is because they are beyond exhausted. Pay more for travel time; any driver who consistently drives and only works at RGIS is on welfare. That's unacceptable. Give promotions to people who know how to supervise but who also know how to have a normal interaction with another person. Get a more accurate computer/tech system so people's APH records are correct. Allow more open communication between coworkers so people know who they will be driving and in case of emergencies. Give your workers a heads-up for about how long each job will take so that they can live their lives outside of RGIS as well. Get more equipment for the job; it's ridiculous that half of the lasers and machines are broken and that often there are not enough step stools to go around. Also, provide some type of knee support for much cheaper or free so your employees don't blow out their knees. Stop punishing people for taking a day or two off or complaining about how crappy they feel from work; they would come in as scheduled if you were more understanding of people needing sleep and food.

    I have been working at RGIS part-time

    Pros

    Team leader can be helpful.

    Cons

    Management doesn't really care about what availability you put down they will schedule you whenever convenient. You never know how long you will be on a job for. They expect you to show up and possible work an 18 hour shift with no notice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put estimated time to complete a job on the schedule so the employee can plan on how long they will be there a head of time.
