Pros

The people watching is quite extraordinary. The people you will end up working with are like no other people on the planet.

Cons

They will work you insane hours if you let them but if you stand your ground on your availability they are usually pretty good about working with you on it. Especially if you are a valuable asset in an inventory.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There isn't enough positive feedback when the teams do well, but when they mess something up there is plenty to be heard from the management.

    Pros

    If you get the hang of counting things quickly and can use a ten key number pad, this job is incredibly easy. A decent, relatively low stress way to earn a few extra dollars. No set workplace, you meet up at different stores (grocery, clothing, hardware, books, other retail, occasional warehouse) to conduct the inventory.

    Cons

    Early mornings and late nights. Stores don't want the inventory crew around during peak hours or when they are open at all. Counts will start at anytime, but 6am is a typical morning start with a count that can last anywhere from 3 to 10 hours. Night stores may not get out until after 2am. Traveling two and three hours to a store with minimal compensation wore on me over time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more transparent and attainable efficiency goals. The "bonus" system for hourly employees was a joke. If it were actually tied to profits the company would be bankrupt, which means the company is just trying to get the most out of its employees for the least amount of money. I know all companies do this, but most of them hide it better.

    Pros

    Ever changing schedule, always a different environment (location, store....), if you keep your head in the job and focus, if you are good with numbers - enjoy counting (or if you tend to be O.C.D. so counting is a natural part of your existence) this can be perfect,

    Cons

    The way in which the Directors and Management speak to and treat the auditors and other employees (especially at the start of each assignment) - it is as though they are unfocused, disobedient children that cannot be counted on or trusted to do their job effectively.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the employees that are 'under' you with respect and encourage the various store staff to do the same. Keep the employees who do well for you and reward them accordingly - get rid of the others. Satisfied employees will recommend others they know to apply and bring other possibly good employees and/or find a respectful, effective way of communicating your expectations to them. When people feel respected, they work much harder for you. Eventually there would be no need to include all of the demeaning, oftentimes disrespectful 'warnings' at the start up meeting.
