    Pros & Cons of Working for RGIS

    I worked at RGIS part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    1. Flexibility in hours
    2. Every day is different--not stuck in a cubicle
    3. Meet interesting people
    4. Most of the time you are counting on your own, set your own pace

    Cons

    1. Pay is low except for managers.
    2. Uncompensated travel time and expenses for most jobs; often must drive 25 miles or more to get to & from job. MUST have a reliable car. Gas costs can hit your wallet.
    3. Ranking system for pay increases and promotions is not the best--doesn't take into account that some areas are easy to count and others are hard and slower. If you go below some arbitrary counting rate, you may be sent home after 2 hours, so essentially you worked for free after gas costs.
    4. Some managers are not always the best to work with, and play favorites and get angry, but most are OK
    5. Some months (especially January) you work so many hours you feel like a zombie & get little rest. Other months (Nov-Dec.) you hardly work at all, so pay goes up & down and is unpredictable--not good when you have bills to pay.
    6. Sometimes must work in uncomfortable, dirty, cramped or hot places like store backrooms. Often must use ladders. Some lifting required.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a better way to rate employees than a simple productivity measure that doesn't distinguish between easy and hard areas to count or accuracy. Raise the pay to retain employees. Reward employees who always show up. Start a savings plan (401K) for all employees.

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

    Pros

    i worked fro a traveling team so I was able to experience places like Las Vegas and San Diego. We had a ton of free time after work to do what we wanted as long as we showed up to work the next day

    Cons

    Your schedule is not set so sometimes you can work one week and then off for one. you dont get any benefits or pay increases unless your number of pieces per hour is high enough but you can also loose pay if you don't meet the pieces per hour.

    I worked at RGIS full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You have a lot of time off to do what you want really.

    Cons

    The hours and shifts are crazy. You might work 4 different job sites in 1 day and driving is your responsibility. No time for sleep or anything else during peak season. They work you like a dog and pay is terrible. Some days I didn't even make enough to cover gas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more stable shifts and not work people around the clock.

    I worked at RGIS part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You can work at your own pace, so if you are the type that likes to get in there work by yourself and not be bothered you can do fairly well. Even tho you are on a team it changes from job to job and you work pretty independently. The supervisors working with you on-site are much more helpful than the staff you don't directly interact with.

    Cons

    They stick the slower work to the new employees and give the higher paid ones the tools to work faster, so it's hard to get the pay promotions that seem so appealing to begin with. You get a short training session, and once they hire you they seem to want nothing to do with you other than for you to show up to whatever job they give you, which fairly often will end up being a 4am job 90 minutes away. You need to be extremely flexible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If your primary form of contact to your employees is through email, you should actually be able to respond to emails from your employees. I shouldn't have to email you six times before getting in contact with you. Send some sort of confirmation so I don't feel completely unheard.
