Pros

They Allow you to learn supply chain management techniques. They Also give you a vehicle to use which is a perk.

Cons

The room to grow is limited. They're presence in small obscure cities makes it so that in order to move up you must be willing to move to manage a smaller location

    I have been working at WIS International part-time

    Pros

    The coworkers are great, the job is pretty simple. Get paid to sit in a van, you can watch movies, read or chat.

    Cons

    The hours can very, some jobs are long some are super short. You can also go days without working.
    Some of the speeds you need to reach are extremely high, without "cheating" and violating polices.
    Management tells you to work faster but doesn't really give you tips on how to speed up.
    Training for new employees can be lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do better training days.
    Actually enforce policies, or change them.
    Actually work employees who have been here for ever and make a lot.
    Make some stores prep them better.
    Factor accuracy and speed into raises.

    Current Employee - Inventory Associate in Hamilton, ON (Canada)

    I have been working at WIS International part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible hours
    Generally good people to work with (until they wise up and move on)

    Cons

    Overall this company lacks structure and professionalism.

    High turn over due to mass hiring, over work coupled with sever under work, general lack of respect being shown toward employee concerns. Good employees will go through strong physical demands, work hours not unlike shift/splits, and are not guaranteed a raise every year and there are zero benefits.

    Quite often shifts will not be reflected properly on a pay cycle and straightening this out can take up to three weeks, and quite a bit of persuading.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure all offices function together, sharing benefits and knowledge from other offices. Area and regional managers should be held up to higher standards, especially concerning organizational skills, employee management/relations, and business demeanor.
