    I worked at RGIS

    Pros

    Good pay. Didn't have to work weekends very often.

    Cons

    Management didn't work around school schedules, instead would give you less hours if you had to ask for a day off for school. Never a set amount of hours, some weeks would be 50 while others were just 5 or less.

    I have worked here for almost 3 years and get overtime more weeks than not.
    Every 7 weeks you are eligible for pay raise.

    Lots of night shifts.
    Many Travel stores, often over 100 miles....but paid travel after an hour in van.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication among mangers.
    More extensive training for new-hires.

    I have been working at RGIS

    Pros

    I like that RGIS is not your typical 9 to 5 shift and also the fact that work is anything but straining or complicated they can literally train monkeys to do that type of work. You always work with different ppl because so many come and go. There usually always work available despite it not being your typical job stores are always calling to have their merchandise inventoried. Pay is pretty decent considering the ease of the work. It was $9 but now I believe they raised it to $9.50 you can also increase your pay by improving your performance moving up is fairly easy as long as your responsible and punctual. The supervisors are pretty nice but you always a few who act like massholes but that's at every job im sure.

    Cons

    The bad part is sometimes you may not have stores for weeks OR you may only have certain stores and they only last 2 hours. Some store maybe far and are not worth the gas or mileage. The only time they drive you is if the store is not within a 30 mile radius of your assigned office. So if the store is 25 miles away you have to drive and you may only be there for 2hrs. :/ They can be very strict if you miss more than one store so always let them know in advance if you cant make it. But if they send the schedule out late it maybe hard to do so. Also the hours can be dreadful if you work mornings you may have to be at a store 3 or 4am and if you work nights you have to be at a store from 11pm to 5am sometimes even 7am. And God forbid you have a store the next day in the morning or night.

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

    Pros

    Good Service for Retailers' who need a physical inventory of both the store floor and rear warehouse.

    Cons

    RGIS was slapped with a class action law suite (FSLIA Violations) and participants in the class action suite ALONG WITH complaints shown in this following. It seems management has not learned anything from their pass awarded judgment. The new owners Blackstone Investments need to be looking into what is happening with this investment company and taken action with upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the number managers in the field. Company is over burden with field supervisors or district managers who do not know how to handle people. Pay your field Auditors an equitable rate of pay To much emphasis put of speed and not accuracy. More and better training. improve LABOR HOURS AND WORK.

    Good, the Bad, the Ugly of working at RGIS

    Former Employee - Inventory Auditor in San Diego, CA

    I worked at RGIS part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    1. Flexible schedule
    2. Not stuck in one place--move around--each day is different
    3. Meet lots of people
    4. Get to see prices in different stores

    Cons

    1. Low pay for all but managers
    2. Low benefits
    3. No compensation for most travel
    4. Must have good car
    5. Some jobs only last a couple of hours, so you lose money
    6. Often must lift and climb ladders, or work in crowed or stinky & hot backrooms
    7. The method used to rate employees is unfair--based entirely of arbitrary productivity. If you are a careful auditor like I was who wants to be accurate, it is almost impossible to get beyond the "specialist" level. Auditors and specialists are given the worst areas to count. UNFAIR!!! Many people who advance seem to cut corners, "guestimating" or batching numbers when they can get away with it
    8. Almost impossible workload in January; almost no work in November-December.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a better way to rate employees. Reward accuracy. Reward showing up. Not just pieces per hour, a stupid and meaningless number. Better benefits & pay. Compensate for travel. If these things are done, fewer employees will quit in disgust.

    Pros

    They'll hire anyone. And I mean anyone. They're desperate for anyone to work for them. If you work part-time, you'll finally be able to afford a refrigerator box to settle under. But they pay for travel, which is nice.

    Cons

    Was constantly jerked around by management, management played favorites, hours were weird, schedules would always change on my last minute, there was too much of an emphasis on quantity when inventorying and not on quality (so before I resigned, I settled on "stacking" and rushing just to meet my quota).

    Pros

    When there's work, you work. As long as you have a flexible schedule and don't mind waking up at the crack of dawn, you will get hours. There is potential to advance. If you ask, and management thinks you have potential, they will work with you.

    Cons

    Be prepared to find another part time job when slow season comes or if you don't have a really flexible schedule because if you're depending on the money from this job, you will be disappointed. If you have a flexible schedule, they will put you on doubles (morning, nights) which can wreck havoc with your sleep cycle and any plans you might have.
