It's not a good place to work
Auditor (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – January 25, 2017
I worked for PICS inventory for a while, for an auditor position. The job itself is easy - just need to count the products at the markets and put the information in the machine. The supervisor is friendly, and I didn't have problems with my colleagues. But they don't have any kind of career path to follow and they don't even have any kind of procedures on what is expected for you to exceed in this job. To make the things worse, you need to wake up early - sometimes 3:00 in the morning - just to travel to the job sites. You also need to bend, remove cold merchandise from freezers - don't apply if you have problems in your knees or can't climb on ladders. The pay is low, and the problem is that they only pay you miles driven if the location is far away 30 miles from the central office.And of course, if you need to travel, you need to drive to the central office first to get in the van. But most of the time, you need to drive to the store locations, and you spend much money on gas and maintenance in your car. The start wage is US$ 10,00 an hour in Atlanta area, that is good for this type of job - the problem is the costs of gas and maintenance of the car. It ended up on average of 6 to 8 dollars an hour. This means that the turnover of the company is very high. People spend only one month working in this company. The longest Auditor that I met worked for 4 months. So, for a part-time job (20 hours a week) is not a good job to go. Better to work in a restaurant or do another part-time job.
