    Pros

    It's part time work, the people are down to earth, the manager's are AWESOME and even working alone is cool..

    Cons

    You have to get familiar with your counting gun.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only thing I can say is management treats us all with respect. We are a time and try to move as one..

    Pros

    Kept you busy when there was work.

    Pros

    Good time spent on the road if you like to travel. Employees were enthusiastic and friendly. Pay was decent for a summer job and it got me out of the house.

    Cons

    It was actually really hard work for inventory. I remember the first week my knees were shot after the week of inventory at Wal-Marts.

    Pros

    Really easy to count inventory. Like a family when in the van for so long. Supportive supervisors.

    Cons

    Two of the travel hours are not paid for. Must have a free schedule. It is exhausting with all of the traveling.

    Pros

    Hires Immediately, weekly pay, and provides transportation

    Cons

    Management and doesn't promote from within enough. Would rather hire someone off the street and make them a salaried employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs a better structure to ensure customer satisfaction

    Pros

    If you love to travel and have new experiences then this would be a part time job. If you have a problem the company is there for you. This is a world wide organization. We travel in a company vehicle to where we need to inventory. Mostly just does day jobs but there is some overnight or twt to three day stays. Company pays for, hotel, you get travel pay and per diem.

    Cons

    The hours are the hardest. Most times we leave anywhere from 3 to 5 am and get back anywhere from 8 to 16 hours later. Sometimes we leave at 4 to 7 pm and don't get back till 2 to 6am.You must have transportation to and from local office!!!
    This is not a good job for someone with young children. The hours are crazy. You may get in from a job and have to leave in a few hours for another one. This john had a specific start time but there are many variables that go into when the job is done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training Training Training. Just a couple of hours on the counters we use is not enough.

    Not having guaranteed hours and/or days makes it hard to stay with this company.
