    I worked at WIS International part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the travel that we'd do as well as my coworkers. The schedule was quite flexible.

    Cons

    The actual job was monotonous and there were times where we'd go past a certain point in the shift and we wouldn't get paid for that extra time due to a contract with the store that we'd inventory. Also, the scanning devices were very fragile and unreliable at times.

    Advice to Management

    I would say that management should invest in better scanning devices and work with the stores better so that inventory is easier for the employees.
