    I have been working at RGIS full-time

    Pros

    This company is wonderful! The management really wants their people to succeed. They will give additional training, encouragement, and incentives to get and retain employees. They foster an environment of friendliness and cooperation that makes going to work a pleasure. That management style filters down to the hourly employee level. All are willing to help the new hires to flourish. Also, this company promotes from within.

    Cons

    Not the most interesting work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    I have been working at RGIS part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There aren't many pros to working for RGIS other than the fact your job location changes daily.

    Cons

    First off, don't believe the dishonesty regarding hours. You WILL NOT receive anywhere close to "full time" despite being told the opposite during your interview/orientation. Even being a supervisor and on a dedicated team, I would be lucky to receive 20 hours a week during peek inventory season!

    Second, be aware YOU WILL NOT BE PAID FOR TRAVEL 3/4s of the time. RGIS policy is that you do not get paid to ride in their work vans til after your first hour of travel (this applies to-and-from), meaning, 3 hours worth of travel (roundtrip) only leads to 1 hour of compensation AT MINIMUM WAGE. That's right, regardless of your pay grade, you will NOT receive your ranks pay when traveling, instead, you'll have to settle for minimum wage. Seeing as most of the stores are within an hour travel time (one direction) you will hardly see any form of compensation for your time riding in a packed work van.

    Get used to the preferential treatment as well! If you're not in the "clique" chances are you are going to get crappy hours and horrible areas to count (especially if you're trying to rank up) while the 'in-crowd' gets rewarded with hours and protected areas/numbers. With this company, it's not "what you know," it's "who you know."

    Despite having a 0 tolerance policy, RGIS seems not to care that a vast majority of its workers are drug users and alcoholics, including company drivers! Our most recent driver has come to work hung over numerous times endangering the safety of everyone in the work van, yet no action has been taken against him!

    Advice to Management

    Clean district 458 up! This includes AMs, DMs, and the supervisors. Stop the unethical and unprofessional treatment of employees!

    I worked at RGIS full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    For the most part, the people at RGIS are great. The job is not difficult and everyone tends to share a sense of camaraderie. What used to be a highly politicized organization is not only somewhat bound up by office politics.

    Cons

    There is no longer a sense of family - that went away when the Nicholson family sold to Impala Partners. And when Impala sold their soul to Blackstone, the company went from a great place to work to nothing more than a paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being driven solely by profit to the exclusion of all else - there are other worthwhile reasons for doing the right thing,
