    Pros

    I started back in late May of 2015, I was paid extremely well for the job I did. (Inventory counting) Within two weeks, I was supervising other employees as an Audit Supervisor. By the end of our contract for our store, I was given a transfer to join RMS. There is potential in anything you do, and if you are tired of retail and want to explore your options within similar fields like Merchandising and Inventory, WIS is a great company to gain experience from.

    Cons

    Sometimes worked 12 hour shifts, but was paid accordingly. Start times generally differed depending on the current project.

    Advice to Management

    Seek out the gems in the ranks of Inventory. Its not about fearing job replacement, its about contributing to the company's overall growth.

    Pros

    i love working for this company. the people and the atmosphere among the team is nothing i experienced since the military.

    Cons

    I really don"t like to bad rap any company that gave me an opportunity to better myself. I guess a little better pay is always a good thing.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, i think you are on your way to bigger and better things.I always found it beneficial for the people in charge to listen to the ones on the bottom floor more often than not.

    Pros

    No long hours sitting at a desk; you're always moving. Get to work at a variety of stores which keeps things from getting monotonous. Eligible for raise every 6 months based on performance/attendance. Health benefits you can buy into even as part-time.

    Cons

    Weird hours, often really late or really early. Upper management does not respect or value employees; views everyone as replaceable. High turnover rate so once you get used to a crew half of them leave. Once you start making too much money upper management finds a way to get you out so someone they can pay less can take your spot. Health benefits for part-time do not meet minimum Obamacare requirements.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with respect and like people instead of objects and you'll be able to keep good, reliable employees around longer.

    Pros

    It's very easy to get the job. The employees are friendly, and they will give you 3 chances (no show no call) before they terminate you. You can move up in the company, they don't discriminate. An opportunistic company. They will also provide a hotel if your work requires overnight stay.

    Cons

    Their hours are not consistent. You also don't know how long you will be working. It could be only 1 hr, up to 12 hrs unexpectedly. Don't be surprised if they give you a full 1-2 weeks off. They mainly only do that to the new workers' though.

    Advice to Management

    The management need to be carried in a more professional manner.
