    Work/life at RGIS Headquarters as a CAD Tech was a lot like working at a poorly managed factory...as a SCAB

    CAD Tech (Former Employee) Auburn Hills, MI

    ProsThe paycheck. No unemployment or job options made this job a prize. Lots of training with no compensation or personal growth.

    ConsThe paycheck. No benefits or promotions. Sometimes it seemed as though the work schedule would change just to inconvenient the staff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmployees should not be treated as unnecessary overhead

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Wage Slavery Personified!

    Inventory Auditor (Current Employee) Auburn Hills, MI

    ProsIt's a job, the hours and scheduling are very flexible.

    ConsYou're treated like a felon depending on the store (Victorias Secret was very notorious for this) and patted down to make sure you're not shoplifting. You have to pay for travel time up for one hour and its not compensated. You're held to impossible work standards. You won't be employed full-time, you're always on call. Its the definition of a dead-end job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees like human beings!

    Overlooked potential; hired as Inventory Auditor, rather than skilled Inventory Manager.

    Inventory Auditor (Former Employee) East Providence, RI

    ProsEasy to learn, easy work, some other employees are fun to be around. New stores to inventory. They hire anyone off the street, as it were, to be Inventory Auditors, though they choose inexperienced people to be managers. VERY varied schedule, but I was used to that kind of thing.

    ConsI worked previously for WIS International, a competing company, for 8 years, working my way up to an Inventory Manager. When I left WIS, and applied for RGIS, I applied as an Inventory Manager, since I was qualified, considering the skills and experience required. I was hired, however, as an entry-level Inventory Auditor. The hiring manager knew of my previous experience, but ignored it. When I tried to give advice, I was looked down on by people who had only worked in the business for a year or two.

    A district manager questioned why I was in the entry-level position, and the manager who happened to hire me (who was on the sales floor next to me) lied to the manager, and said that I never told her about my previous experience. Really?! Okay. She then told him that she had no idea who I was, so she couldn't really talk about it.

    The job, considering there are no work vehicles (vans, etc.) can be hard on personal vehicles, since you need to drive yourself to and from each store. I quit a few months after working there, still as an Inventory Auditor - even AFTER the district manager suggested I be promoted, since we spoke for some time, and I gave a variety of suggestions that he told the other managers to put to use. The money wasn't worth it, since I was barely getting scheduled any hours, and I was paying more in gas than I was actually getting paid.

    The favoritism was incredible. The "Top Guns" got to cherry pick whatever areas they wanted, and god forbid you try to scan the area!! Even certain shelves; for example, shelves 1-4 are fine for anyone, but 5-7 are for Top Guns ONLY.! Yet they wouldn't give other people the ability to become Top Guns. Only the people that they liked had that ability. The levels of "employment" - "auditor", "expert", "top gun", etc., are all useless. Everyone does the same job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementActually check your managers in each office. Many of them don't know what they're doing. Even when I just started at this job, and had to learn a new machine, etc., I was STILL training other new people how to do the job. If someone says that they have the experience to do the job, test them, and if they pass, promote them.
    The Top Gun, etc., "positions" need to be checked out, as well. Either give that ability to anyone who can obtain it, or get rid of it completely.
    Company vans would be great for some people, especially in the "slow months" when it costs more to drive to the store than you'd receive working there.

    ProsWill hire easily. You have a choice to when you want to work.

    ConsThe hours available usually aren't hours you would normally want to work. Pay is very low.

    Most toxic work environment ever experienced

    Information Technology (Former Employee) Auburn Hills, MI

    ProsSome good people, but WAY too many managers that don't have a clue, and a senior management team that allowed an out of control CIO to remain in place for too long

    ConsWeak structure, weak compliance, weak management team

    Nice 2nd job

    Inventory Taker (Current Employee) Indianapolis, IN

    ProsWork is available to anyone who has a car.
    Work as many or as few hours needed.

    ConsThe work is hard on my back and knees.
    The hours are crazy - late evenings, very early mornings.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPost a calendar of local inventories needing employees to sign up. People could choose their own schedules for the most part. It would increase morale and cut down on unnecessary travel. Scheduling managers could still assign people to certain jobs.
