I worked at RGIS full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Managers a good down to earth people that are trying their best and will help you, you just have to ask.

Cons

Hours were crazy. I worked 30 hours straight at one point. Don't get time to eat, sleep, you'll be sick most of the winter. Working 50 hours a week in the norm. Anything less feels like a vacation.

Advice to Management

Pay more or add another manager because its to much stress and to many accounts on each one.

    I worked at RGIS part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I got to work with some really nice and caring people (not the managers).
    Every one is in the same miserable boat so we make the best of it.

    Cons

    Major lack of communication. I would call in sick to my area manager who would neglect to tell the district manager so I got failure to appear notices. NOT flexible scheduling if you had 24/7 availability. I got scheduled for a job at "company X" 45 miles away and when I said I'm not going they said I could work at another job at another location of "company X" 4 miles away. Why wasn't I scheduled there in the first place? I have traveled 90 miles round trip for a 3 hour job at $9.00/hr, lost money that day as you won't get reimbursed for travel expenses! Even if you are counting fast you can get sent home early if the rest of your team is slow. It's all about managers making their numbers.
    You can get scheduled for 8pm start then 6am start the next day. And they want accuracy? Good luck. Management has a habit of not returning emails or phone calls if they don't want to deal with you.
    The equipment is old and often doesn't work. Have enough step stools when they are needed! On asking one manager if I could get something to stand on at a supermarket he said "Good Luck!"
    Was trained mostly by more senior auditors who took pity on us new guys and I did the same when I got more experience. Some auditors picked and chose the easy to count stuff while leaving nasty work like clearance racks for the newer less lazy crew.
    If the stores we counted only knew!
    Thank you for letting me vent here!

    Advice to Management

    Schedule with common sense. Gas is expensive so try to schedule folks closer to home.
    As I saw in older posts, treat people the way you would like to be treated. If you expect me to return your calls, do the same!

    I worked at RGIS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Exciting company with global reach (49+ countries) and excellent infrastructure architecture and support staff

    Cons

    VERY toxic and completely out of touch CIO. Believes intiatives can be accomplished by actually yelling at and bereting staff. Does not understand technology, compliance or basic managment techniques

    Advice to Management

    Find a CIO or Senior Information Technology management that is knowledgable and has the ability to collaborate with senior leadership team
