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

    Pros

    Weekly pay, travel, interesting work in stores.

    Cons

    Differing hours (I liked that, but not everyone does), sometimes store customers get confused and think a WIS employee works for the store that is being inventoried.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees' suggestions about travel in company vehicles.

    Very flexible hours. You can manage your own off day

    Pros

    The job in itself is pretty easy.

    Cons

    Low pay, if you have children it may not be the job for you due to constant travel. There is a very high turn over rate.


  8. "Ehh"

    I worked at WIS International (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There's plenty of opportunities to take on assignments at an entry level position. All you have to do is have nothing else to do with your life.

    Cons

    Assignments can be at any time and have no expected ending time. If you happen to have another job besides this one, you may, almost definitely, find yourself emailing supervisors of your circumstances. You may also find that you'll be assigned to locations you may not have wanted to work at out of need for workers. (which let me know that supervisors don't converse with one another and you'll be repeating yourself multiple times)

    With a need for more bodies on the floors doing inventory, you may be seen as expendable. I would be written up for not taking assignments, logical reasoning didn't seem to matter, and would be let go with no notification whatsoever. Although, seeing how things were going, I can't say I was that disappointed personally,

    Advice to Management

    Find a better method of marketing these positions to people, a weekly pay rate isn't always the best way to attempt to recruit more employees. It may work for a young hungry kid out of school, but not for long.

    I have been working at WIS International part-time

    Pros

    Good pay and relatively easy job. You can choose what days you could be scheduled for work and around what times. It's especially good if you need some extra income.

    Cons

    If you're not working at least 3-4 times a week you'll more than likely make only a couple hundred a month.
    You are required to drive to stores yourself unless it's more than an hour away in which case you'll have a meeting spot where the company van will take you if you want.

    Pros

    Good home and work balance.

    Cons

    Not enough work hours. They make you do the work no one else wants to.

    Advice to Management

    Make more people full time
