    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

    I retired from full-time work in July, and the mostly evening and night assignments allowed me to keep my days free for golf.

    Cons

    Where to start? When I was hired, I was led to believe that I'd be working in an area close to my home. But only 2 of my first six assignments were in that area. When they scheduled me for two inventories that were over an hour away from home, I called to question it but was essentially told that "we schedule you where we need you". That was enough for me, and I resigned that day.
    Pay is pretty weak (start at $9.50 an hour), and the training is a joke. For my first couple of inventories, I was pretty much thrown to the wolves. Then the managers get ticked off because I ask questions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training needs to be significantly better. Also, why tell a new hire that he'll be working in one area, but then schedule him elsewhere (farther away) most of the time?
