    I worked at RGIS part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Meeting people from varied backgrounds. Helped me learn the area due to traveling to different stores. They are eager to promote if you work well and fast. Would provide travel if job was out of given mileage range.

    Cons

    Promotion ladder is confusing. Each team lead ran stores differently. Be prepared to get called in on your off days and have your work days doubled if you work well. Training seemed repetitive at times. Lack of communication with management at times.

    Pros

    RGIS is a superb organization that has many opportunities worldwide. It is an excellent opportunity for both recent high school and college graduates as well as experienced employees. Advancement to supervisory responsibilities are excellent for those who are diligent and desire management level .One of the best reasons to work for RGIS is the relative ease in which employees can transfer to other locations if they are relocating.

    Cons

    No cons that I can come up with.

    Pros

    Good money if your a fast counter. You make more money traveling. You get full holiday weeks off. You don't work weekends on the traveling team unless you help another team for support.

    Cons

    Per diem pay is low. Shows alot of favoritism. Not good to travel if your a slow counter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit showing favortism. Put people where their supposed to be in the right flow.

    I worked at RGIS part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay for home depot teams is actually higher than the local districts. Option of transferring when moving to another place. Stable hours for depot unless there was a blackout versus the local team's unpredictable hours. Meet people of all backgrounds. Get to travel to various states. U get what u put in.

    Cons

    The pay is not kept when transferring to another districts. They put you in the crappiest hotels that are usually 30 minutes away from the Home Depot you have to count, that are infested with bedbugs. Scheduling for home depot is consistent whereas the local stores put it out on the beginning of the week and constantly changes it. Transferring into another district I was constantly overlooked and given no pieces while their people got good pieces, even tho I counted much faster than their top guns. Team Leaders are a joke in local stores. They have too much favoritism and don't do their job well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    figure out a way to exclude set up hours from actual counting day's aph. treat your coworkers better. hire better managers and assistant managers!

    I worked at RGIS full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They offered paid training. They offered transportation to job sites. The interview process was painless and smooth.

    Cons

    They did not offer paid time in order to use their transportation to and from job sites, often times this was hours before the job started, and hours after. Promotions at RGIS seemed to be based on favoritism and not actual work ethic and responsibility. There seemed to be many supervisors with very little actual supervision. They lack organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage. Try to understand that your employees are your greatest asset and reward accordingly. This isn't summer camp, this is a business.

    Pros

    The people you meet are all cool. Management is okay, they were once in your place so they kind of have a feel for what you do. Most work is done through the middle of the night and early morning.

    Cons

    No personal growth or proper training, the job might be easy and yes you learn on the job but pay is based on how fast you count. If you're going to a store that's far away you have to deal with somebody else' driving. They pay you enough to gas in your car to get to the next store to do inventory. Also they expect you to pull heavy merchandise, count it, then put it back...yet pay is based off how fast you count, -_-. There are multiple supervisors and they all have different ways of counting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the store is 30 minutes or more from the office provide transportation!!!!
