    above min wage, you determine your rate of pay by inventory speed.

    you must be self motivated

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep training new hires to assist in improving speed and accuracy. shadowing is also a good learning tool.

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

    Pros

    You are rewarded for the level of effort you put into your work. The level of your pay is directly tied to your attitude, work ethic, and ability.
    The greatest pro; do well and develop relationships with your customers, they may ask you to work for them.

    Cons

    The same as any other job. There are a lot of jerks that manage within this company. You have to be able to roll with it most of the time. My advice if you work for this company... Go to every event, work hard, keep your mouth shut, and don't sweat the small stuff. A lot of people that have been there a long time are hardcore. Not hardcore in the sense that they defend the company, but hardcore in the fact that they don't care about you or the company. They survive, because they are an asset.

    You will always be considered part-time. Even though I work more than 40 hours per week, the job is coded as part-time. I smell a challenge in the future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Professionalism is something that you will find very little of within this company. Everyone has an agenda and will not stop until they accomplish their goals. This is why I will be leaving before too long. I am a professional.

    Pros

    The hours are flexible, you tell them when you can work and they schedule you accordingly. Promotion system is easy, faster you count the the higher up the 4 tiers you go.

    Cons

    The hours are random, if you work evenings you don't know exactly when you will work day by day until you see your schedule. Late November and all of December are generally devoid of work.

    I have been working at RGIS

    Pros

    I like going to a different place every day and seeing different people. I also like that I'm constantly busy....no standing around cleaning the windows and counters because I'm bored like in retail.

    Cons

    This job takes a toll on your body. Some inventories can run 10-12 hours (not the norm). You're always on your feet or knees. Up and down ladders, on cement floors, stretching to reach things, lifting and moving boxes. .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop hiring criminals. Treat your employees better and you wouldn't have such high turnover.

    Pros & Cons of working at RGIS as an Auditor (not manager)

    Former Employee - Inventory Specialist in San Diego, CA
    Former Employee - Inventory Specialist in San Diego, CA

    I worked at RGIS

    Pros

    1. Move around--not stuck in an office cubicle

    2. Meet interesting people

    3. If you want to advance, and do the job OK, can advance fairly rapidly since there is a high employee turnover

    4. If you like to shop, this is the place--get to compare prices in different stores & find best bargains

    5. If you like numbers, you may like this job

    6. Easy to get hired--they always need people since some don't stay for long (see below)

    Cons

    1. Low pay and benefits for all auditors, even long term employees (under $12/hr. for most employees-start pay is under $10). Even the fast counters don't make very much unless they become team leaders or managers. There is no sick leave, no savings plan, etc. except for managers. Medical plan is available but doesn't cover very much.

    2. Lots of driving to get to jobs, so you MUST have a reliable car that is cheap to operate. The job is hard on cars. can easily drive 20K miles per year. Gasoline & car upkeep costs eat into wages. First hour of travel is uncompensated, so company doesn't help with cost of getting to most jobs.

    3. Schedule varies week to week, so paycheck goes up and down wildly. In January you work practically every day, even double shifts. In November-December you may work very little. Also, on a daily basis, you can work as little as 2 hours or more that 10. Unpredictable. If you work only 2 hours, you end up losing money when you figure in travel costs. Also, because there is no sick pay, employees sometimes show up for work with colds or the flu, which others catch.

    4. The company needs to find a better way to rate employees. Now they basically just look at counting speed, APH. This is not valid in my opinion, because counting areas are not alike. Some areas are precounted or are multi-quantity, so you can rack up very fast counting rates (APH) there. Other areas are very hard to count, so your rate will be low. These differences are not taken into account. This is unfair, since the newer employees and the low rank (auditor or specialist) employees are given the slower areas to count, typically. If you try to be an accurate counter as I was, you will probably find it difficult to advance much in rank and pay The system also encourages some employees to "cherry pick" easy areas to count, or estimate, or batch to achieve a higher APH. Accuracy suffers. The company needs to change this poilcy to make advancement fairer and to reward accuracy as well as speed. The company should also reward employees who have good attendance, since no shows are a big problem.

    5. The equipment doesn't always work well, especially finger lasers. This reduces APH.

    6. Farmer's hours--you wake up before the sun usually since many jobs start very early. If you like to wake up later, avoid this job. If you like early hours, this job is for you. There are also lots of very late jobs--you can be counting away at 2 AM. Can mess up your sleep cycle.

    7. Some stores or areas of the stores are very difficult to count. You may work in very hot or very cold areas, and often must climb ladders. Some areas require lifting to reach product bar codes. Can be hard on backs. Backrooms are counted in most stores. Backrooms can be very cramped, and sometime dusty or dirty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a better way to rate people in addition to APH. How about testing everyone once a year in "speed & accuracy ratings" in the office so you can really tell who counts fast with accuracy? Get new equipment that works, audit machines & lasers especially. Pay for travel costs and time. Raise pay, at least after trial period. All these things will reduce costly turnover (50% at least over the year). Pay for at least 5 days a year of employee sick leave. Employee turnover & training must be a big expense.

    I worked at RGIS

    Pros

    You can move up to $12.50/hr if you reach top gun level. It isnt hard, you just have to have good accuracy and speed. Also if you become a team leader you will make 13 to 15 depending on what level you are for counting.

    Cons

    Alot of driving
    Some shifts are only 2 hours long
    slow during holidays which is one of the times you need money the most..
