Inventory Auditor (Current Employee) – Fairfax, VA – July 13, 2015
RGIS is a face paced environment that really only cares about their numbers rather than accuracy. I was never trained properly and thrown into a schedule without really knowing what to do. Some places required early morning or late night access which is not provided by the company, you need to figure it out yourself. I was late multiple times because I didn't know where a store was or how to get into a mall, and being new to the area, a little instruction would've helped. Also, if you aren't there ten to fifteen minutes before your shift is scheduled to start, you'll have no idea what's going on since they start their meetings early. I was never informed of this when I started. They send schedules through emails since that's how this company communicates so if you need to contact them good luck, it's hard to get an answer out of anyone. The management is lacking and the coworkers aren't very friendly. If you work for five hours, you might get a ten minute break, you might not. All in all, if you can avoid working for this place, you're better off.

RGIS is a unique beast in that you often find yourself in an entirely new location every single day. Many business utilize their services, requiring their employees to travel all about the area they live in, performing inventories for everything from small convenience stores like 7-Eleven, to larger, 'little bit of everything' stores like Target. One common complaint about many jobs is that they grow dull; that it's too much of the same, every single day. RGIS alleviates that by placing you somewhere new most days.
Most shifts also start as early as 4 A.M. While that may sound daunting for many, it also means that you almost always finish up your shift and get home by 1 or 2 PM, giving you most of the rest of the day to yourself. It's certainly not for everyone, but it works exceptionally well for some.
Flexible hours, diverse environments, relatively easy to advance in
A lot of gas money spent traveling, and a distinct lack of accountability
Specialist (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – March 14, 2017
Travelling was a part of the job, going to work meant packing a suitcase oftentimes and meeting at a place to be taken somewhere far off to do a job. I advanced quickly, getting promoted within the first two weeks of my employment, and was assigned to a special team of professionals who traveled and worked on behalf of the company assisting other teams where needed. I made a lot of friends and became accustomed to the job as more a lifestyle, working hard meant you got ahead. And I always work hard. Every day was different, a new job, a different boss, another client. I learned a lot about myself and other people from all walks of life. Numbers was our trade, counting our practice, I learned how to take vast amounts of records, and memorize code in a short period of time. Skills I still use today.
Good Pay, A lot of hours, Travel and work incentives
It's a decent part time job for someone who is having a hard time finding a job. Not great for long term employment. Breaks are very rare even if working for 6+ hours. You have to drive all over the place, sometimes over an hour and if it is over a certain amount of miles you are put in a van with other employees. Some weeks you will work overtime and other weeks you will have 6 hours and that is all. No healthcare packages because you don't get 40 hours consistent. Also very physically demanding job, you have to move up and down a ladder constantly and are on your feet the entire time.

Don't waste your time with this company. They expect you to be robots with no family emergencies and no other obligations but them. Gave them 2 years of my life and I was still getting treated like a newbie while at top gun rank. Isn't worth it go to McDonald's or something you'll be happier

Waking up early times of day to inventory whole stores learned how to multitask and remain very accurate. Company was also organized to preform all task with greatest of ease and in professional Manor . We would compete against one another to keep us motivated but remained always accurate .toughest part of job was preforming your complete shift and still have to travel 10+ hours especially more difficult for myself being the company driver as well . But most enjoyable part was everyday was a different scenery with great co workers .
Hotels where covered by company and on occasion free lunches.per diem

I had a lot of fun at RGIS. There are some negatives, like having to wake up sometimes at 3am to get ready for work and not going home until the inventory is completed, but other than that, I formed a lot of lasting friendships working inventory. It was a competitive environment to work in where everyone had to hit a goal of how many pieces they counted in an hour.

They don't care about their employees. They would even schedule you back to back, double shifts. For example, you get scheduled 10pm at one store that usually takes more than four hours (e.g. you get out at 3-4am), and they expect you to be at another store at 5am that is 30 miles away. You basically get no sleep. They don't care if you haven't slept in 2-3 days or have personal reasons as to why you cannot show up. They still expect you to drive 20-30 miles, completely disregarding your health. It's not worth the trouble, especially for a minimum wage paying job (with only a couple dollars increase for the highest rank in the ASET level).
Inventory Associate (Current Employee) – Lombard, IL – March 4, 2017
This is a face paced job that will keep you on your toes. You will travel to many different locations a learn a lot of insider knowledge about many different companies. Management has a lot to be desired for as of 2017 their management lacks professionalism and does not understand the concept of "work - life balance". The hardest part of the job is the hours. The hours are extremely taxing as they are early mornings or late nights. The part I enjoy most about the job is my co-workers. They are a unique group of individuals that make the job bearable.

This is a good company. You have the ability to travel and see new and exciting places you usually will not have the opportunity to see. We inventory The Home Depot. We go in, count, and that's about it. They pay for travel, per diem, everything from the moment you load up in one of the vans. The only downside is changes are made frequently. Almost moments after one is made, you can expect another. I've learned a great deal in regards to management and leadership!
