    Pros

    Easy money

    Uncomfortable vans

    There was no such thing as management. I just showed up and they gave me a job. They stood around the whole time we counted.

    Pros

    Your working & making money that's it.

    Cons

    Taking away people's hours
    Not paying us the hours we worked usually a few off and they won't correct them
    Worked me and my crew last night 14 hrs but we won't see one cent of overtime since we worked 12hrs but those last 2 hrs happened to go over 12am so yep NO overtime out all..

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

    Pros

    Quick advancement and decent raises-if you count accurately. They were super accommodating to me in terms of my mental disabilities. I put out good work for them, in return the supervisors gave me certain perks to help me keep my fast,consistent counts.

    Cons

    SO much travel. Some days I'd be at the office at 4am and not get back to the office until 8pm. & they don't like to pay for the first hour of travel EACH way. so on average, you arent getting paid 2 hrs each day.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the entire travel time & compensate for the sometimes ridiculous hours. Other than that, this was one of my favorite jobs I've ever had. Kris Dittmar is THE BEST DM ever!
