    Pros

    If you have a good team and boss, this job can be a lot of fun.
    If on the Walmart side, your winter months are like paid vacations. Walmart doesn't allow inventories during the Christmas season
    Seeing new places you never thought you would.

    Cons

    Over worked and no real bonus structure at this level.
    Lots of out of town nights and days.
    I spent every day at work in a Walmart
    Promotions are available if you work hard

    Advice to Management

    Paying your people better will get you better managers/teams/efficiency/revenue. At the pay scale you currently have and the hours you require, you will lose all your good managers to better jobs eventually. In the end, you end up paying for the training your ex-employees take to other jobs. Pay your people better and you would keep better people.


  4. "Inventory associate"

    I worked at WIS International part-time

    Pros

    Co workers made the job fun

    Cons

    far commute, sometimes you will get off work at any given time, 1am 2am 3am 4am 5am. There is no specific time you will get off and there is no specific amount of hours you will get. Sometimes you go to a store only to do 2 hours and sometimes you get 6 hours. You will never know how many hours you will do. The pay is very inconsistent and not reliable to pay bills.

    Pros

    There are No pros !!

    Cons

    You are at the murcy of the 'Management" who for any reason can and will clock you out ! And that means leave whatever store in whatever City how ever far from home hot or cold out side ! You cant go sit in the company van that brought you there!!
    The 'Managment' smell like they are literally rotting !!! It makes me gag and is so imbarresing to enter or be associated with this company when the company getting the inventory is gagging and passing out mints in handfuls!!
    Yr time clock is so confusing and never correct !! But if u question it they just cut yr work days! You can get schedualed for an out of town job and travel 4 hrs of yr day but only get paid for 2 of it. And when you get there you wrk as fast as u can and could be finished in 3/4 hours then even if you take lunch or not irs srill deducted from yr hrly pay and back on the van like slaves ! Oh and dont forget everyone of the "Managers" talk to you like you are stupid and belittle you as a crew in front of anyone they can . im looking into doing a undercover video cam to show how crooked they really are !!
    Oh yah and the equipment never works and they will clock u out as tho its yr fault you cant do yr job !!!

    Advice to Management

    Go see the dentist!! Take a shower before work!! Stop steeling our pay and time!! Be fair ! Stop treating us like people beneeth you or less intelligent !! Try some team work and spirit ! Pay us what we are worth !!! We do the job SVERY TIME in silence !! Service yr vans and wash them !! Take pride in being a International company and reviews like tis might not be so frequent....

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

    Pros

    Decent, friendly co workers. Easy money. Good exercise. Fast paced. Meet new people and make friends. Work in different locations, traveling to different areas, sometimes out of state. Can be a lot of fun sometimes. Good area manager here. When job finishes early, you then have the rest of the day free. Very flexible so they can work around any other work or school commitments.

    Cons

    Cheap and corrupt company. Horrible benefits/compensation. Harder to earn raises now. Very few hours at times. High turnover cause of this. Work can be very mindless, monotonous and tedious. Could be paid a lot more for the amount of work we do...

    Advice to Management

    Raise the starting wage. Offer better benefits. Pay us for ALL the travel time.
