Former Employee - Auditor  in  Tampa, FL

Pros

If you absolutely cannot find something else or can only work odd hours, this is for you.

Cons

Horrible pay structure, you don't get paid for all the time you put in, bad equipment, poorly trained supervisors, challenging work conditions to say the least. You will work sometimes at very strange hours.
When management implemented it's "merit / incentive" pay structure a couple of years ago, it has proven to be stacked against the employee having much chance to succeed to get increased pay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

After all the technology improvements and policy changes, guess what? You still cannot conduct these inventories without human beings! Accept the fact and start compensating the employees in a fair-minded fashion.
This used to be a great company. Tell the Blackstone capitalists to get their noses out of their wallets and learn what it takes to run a real business.

    Pros

    You can get raises faster if you are willing to work like a maniac. Counting cans brings me some strange pleasure now. You get paid minimum wage for riding in the van after the first hour so if you get a good seat (some times you only get half a seat or have to lay on the floor under the people) you can get paid too sleep. You get the last few months of the year off. Stores don't want you counting during their peak time starting the day after thanksgiving so you can just lay at home collective unemployment until jan 1 when you will start off the year working 24 hours a day for jan and feb (the stores want to know how much money they made in the holidays. If you like working in a different store every day you will like this job. Also you will have off most weekend as these are store busy time so you can party

    Cons

    Long hours of travel crammed on a crowded van. No breaks allowed. Counting clothing stores is mind numbing the stores double check your count and you can't be off by one. You have to show up thirty or 40 minute early to the jobs to make sure you get working equipment or else you won't be able to count fast. If you don't count fast you will get sent home two hours into the job. Only the fastest workers work until the job is done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The equipment is so broken it sometimes takes 30 minutes before work to find a working finger laser. Please fix it or get new stuff

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, you get to see a lot of cool merchandise, easy job if you are young and single.

    Cons

    Flexible schedule, long hours, back to backs, long travel, having to leave one store after many hours and going to help another team, high turnover, jerk managers. Not a job for older people, people with families especially young children because you will never see them during busy times. Basically three months off at the end of the year, unless you are a favorite. There is a lot of favoritism in this particular district. The DM is not flexible with the schedule, She requires a two week notice to change the schedule. There was a time when you looked at the schedule and you decided whether or not to accept it. Not possible in this district. The DM got upset that one of her team leaders went to another company because I told him about it. Sorry lady but they offered him like $12 hr to start! What the heck do you expect? Oh and this company has been involved in so many class action lawsuits about paid time, it is not even funny.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This used to be a decent company to work for when it was privately owned but not any more. All you guys care about are the numbers. There are smaller inventory companies that get your best people after RGIS has trained them. The smaller companies are better, pay better and treat their employees pretty decently. You fat cats at RGIS would do well to take a look at their playbooks.
