      This isn’t bad (but it has its cons)

      Pros

      A lot of downtime after meeting certain times of completing a inventory. Pay varies on how fast the team goes, long hours = long pay, short hours = short pay. But you will get a raise based on performance (average scan per hour or APH). I tend to not say much and you can get along just fine. Hotels for travel based members will be random and you’ll have to get to know someone to stick with them so you can tell management to keep that roommate with you. Mornings are long but after lunch everything goes smooth. Shift rarely change but it’s usually is 5am-1pm.

      Cons

      The workload can be stressful as some employees can not do as much as a Top Gun or Expert. It all depends, on the flow of all the associates. So long as there isn’t any tension between associates. APH can demote you or promote you based on how fast you count. The best way to counter this is don’t aim for what you can’t sustain. A Expert will suit everyone just fine.

      Good for part time/side gig

      Pros

      Good for introverts as you can keep busy and to yourself your entire shift. Most jobs ("Events" as RGIS calls them) are not during regular store hours, so you don't have customers to work around. You work different locations/stores. Management is flexible with scheduling as long as you give proper notice. Great for people who prefer to work over night while doing something repetitive. Work Shirt provided. Lower pressure group interviews that you schedule online for (San Diego). Paid training.

      Cons

      Late night-early morning hours means no access to public transportation. No secure area to place your belongings, or your lunch/snack for break. You cant wear a backpack or purse while your working. Management tells you to leave your items in your car or on the floor near the RGIS "base station." But if you don't have a vehicle then this presents a problem.

      Good part time job when management respects that that is what you signed up for

      Pros

      Work in different locations each day, frequently work with different people. good supplement to primary income. Decent hourly pay for what the job is.

      Cons

      Horrible benefits you must pay for, employees get taken advantage of, sometimes have to travel long distances and work until the job is done. Sometimes you don't know if its a 5 hour job or 10 hour job. If you work nights expect not to sleep before your day job from time to time. Might get 50 hours one week and 4 the next.

      Pros

      They are flexible and work around family needs. They also give raises based on performance instead of favoritism.

      Cons

      Sometimes you work very long hours with hardly a break. The inventories may be in a different location so you could travel up to 5 hours away, if the store ends up taking longer (and I have been in a few that took 12 hours), then u gotta drive back home, Totalling a work day of about 22 hours...can be exhausting.

      Honestly not as bad as people say.

      Pros

      Flexible Scheduling. You can choose your availability and they schedule around this. Traveling. You will see a lot of the same chains, but you will be in different places almost every shift. I love this fact. Positive Experiences. There are some bad apples, let's all face it. You will work with people that may not be as desirable. I have made some lasting friendships and learned a lot working here though, including having meaningful conversations with high-level regional and district management that I may not have otherwise had working in another field.

      Cons

      Inconsistent work hours. This isn't a typical 9-5 job that you know when you will be home. You will always know when you start, but the duration of each inventory event drastically changes based on attendance and morale. If you need to be home by 3 every single day or absolutely cannot go past your availability, this may not be the choice job for you. Very informal and more casual environment. There is not very strong guidance with most supervisors and that sometimes will hurt performance.

      Pipe-dream opportunities wasted

      Feb 18, 2021 - Inventory Auditor in Pensacola, FL

      Pros

      Competitive pay compared to similarly tasked jobs in this area, when you can get the hours. Paid minimum wage for time beyond one hour spent in company vans traveling to inventory stores. Lots of challenging skills can be learned and one can seize opportunities to advance quickly. Sometimes, you can find managers who will take time to help train you and offer experienced pointers to help you succeed. Inexpensive health benefits availed after 60 days of "full-time" employment (at least 25 hrs a week, I think it was).

      Cons

      Haphazard training practices from upper management kinda sets you up for failure. Lack of organization leading to lots of confusion for new employees, lending to some of the high turn-over. My zone management paid inordinate amounts of attention to speedy inventories in client stores, sometimes encouraging corners cut, instead of pushing the company's reputed auditing accuracy....what the clients actually pay for. Hours and pay are not reliable and predictable...definitely not dependable unless you are lucky enough to score a salaried position. I was personally harassed and belittled for some of my disabilities and PTSD symptoms. In the end, they're a business with no room for people experiencing hardships like living without electricity for months.

      I like the job

      Pros

      Decent hourly wage, constantly busy so no downtime and looking for busywork. Get to go home when job is done. Inventory is done at all types of places from grocery stores to pharmacies to clothing stores. So it makes it interesting not being in the same location every day.

      Cons

      only part time positions unless you’re salary.So no real benefits. You need to have a vehicle if you want to work for this company. But unfortunately management constantly hires people without vehicles which causes a lot of callouts and then everyone else is stuck making up for the missing people and the job can drag on longer than necessary and And all the sudden everyone starts saying they have to leave and the people who are left are stuck until the bitter end 12 to 16 hours later. When it would only have been a 7 to 8 hour shift if everyone showed up that confirmed their schedule

      Pros

      Zone managers try their best to work flexibly with your schedule. Job itself is easy.

      Cons

      Never sure how long your day will be, ultimately depends on the whole team working hard or else its a long day.
