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.

Counting merchandise for companies isn't a complicated job. You work with a team but typically you are actually working solo while your co-workers are on other aisles and departments. The management is great and very helpful. Being able to travel to different places adds spice. You are not always in the same location everyday.
Adequate breaks, Fair wages
kneeling on the floor to count the bottom shelves is not much fun but tolerable.
Area Manager (Former Employee) – Tyler, TX – July 20, 2016
This is a great concept. It is a service in great demand and the company overall has implemented the correct programs to run it. Unfortunately, where the company has lost out is in the people in the field who actually put the program in motion. The conduct is extremely unprofessional and the turnover rate is astronomical. Many accounts have been lost in recent years due to the performance of teams and the lack of cooperation of individuals running the events. Sadly, a great deal of this is due to a lack of training which leads to the frustration not only of the inventory takers but of the supervisors as well, who are ill-trained and at times promoted out of desperation.
Pay based on speed and accuracy, scheduling based on your availability, time off is entirely up to you, don't work holidays.
Long shifts, hours are sporadic, poor field training, non-professional leadership.
Auditor (Former Employee) – Hagerstown, MD – August 3, 2016
The manager,mike,is very rude.doesnt care about employees families.you have to drive your own vehicle and don't get fully reimbursed.also you don't get paid travel time and some days you spend 2hrs one way riding to the job that's not paid.
Inventory Auditor/Supervisor (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – July 10, 2016
Audit stores of all sizes using 10-key and scanners. A lot of travel and some very long hours. Good pay. Part of the year you can work 10 or 20 hours in a week and part of the year you can work 80 or 90 hours in a week. Work all different hours any time of the day or night and weekends.
Inventory Specialist (Former Employee) – North Miami Beach, FL – August 17, 2016
Its a job. Bad compensation. Sometimes they want you to travel a bit longer for little hours. But, it's an easy job. Management was extremely terrible. Dont expect anything more than a job, and dont even expect anyone there to know any manners or have over an 8th grade education.
Team Leader/ Mapper/ Merchandiser/ Supervisor (Current Employee) – Columbus, OH – August 31, 2016
If you have kids, or enjoy a wild free lifestyle this job is not for you. In order to make anything here or get anywhere you must be dedicated to this job more than anything else in life. You have to have twenty-four hour availability Monday - Sunday and be willing to work back to back jobs with little sleep or time to yourself. You must be able to follow direction and be accurate in your counts while keeping a fast pace movement. There are no shifts here you have mornings ranging from 0500 -1800 and evenings ranging from 1500-0500 . If you have any keying experience with 0-9 keys then you will progress easily through ranks and pay raises, others won't progress as quickly. The hardest part of the job is maintaining stable work hours. The easiest part of the job is counting.
Car pooling over long distances
1st break at 5 hours lunch is at the 7 hour mark, second break is at ten hour mark. Jobs can vary from 45 minutes to fifteen hours.
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Fairfield, NJ – November 15, 2016
My previous employers were all wonderful places to work. My fellow coworkers have become a part of my family. Each and every day was greeted by a new challenge but it helped to sculpt me into who I am today.
Inventory expert (Former Employee) – Savannah – October 17, 2016
I don't advise anyone with a family and or personal life to work here but if you can give them the time and commitment they are asking and can deal with a very petty boss then apply they hire any and everyone
Terrible place to work, was not treated like a human being
Inventory Counter (Former Employee) – Altamonte Springs, FL – June 11, 2016
Terrible place to work, manager screaming at you all the time if you were not as fast as they would like to to be. Getting sent to dangerous parts of town. Starting work at 2:50AM and having to be driven to a location more than 2 1/2 hrs away.
getting sent to dangerous parts of town in the early morning or late evening hours
Inventory Specialist (Former Employee) – Auburn, MI – September 1, 2016
I’m not really sure about what to say about this company since I only worked part time there and its been a while. I learned to use the 10 -key machine quite fast and to balance it at the day’s end. As I remember my supervisor was very nice,
Inventory Specialist (Current Employee) – Ogden, UT – May 23, 2016
This company is one of the worst companies to work for. The company has all this money yet they cant treat their employees like garbage. Doesn't matter if your sick, have a family emergency, have car issues, they don't care they just care about you being at work. The hours aren't consistent, you hardly ever give you mandatory breaks. Some days you will work till 2/3 am and have to be back at 4/5am for another shift and expect you to be 100%. Management and most coworkers aren't friendly at all and are very rude
Unsteady hours, bad pay, bad management, long days, expect too much
Inventory Associate (Current Employee) – Melville, NY 11747 – July 6, 2016
in a typical day at work we just count and maintain extreme focus i have learned how to count in a fast pace i can't say the management is good my co-workers are good and friendly the hardest part of the job in doing multi quantity the most enjoyable part is when everything is done
Trainer, Team Lead, Top Gun (Former Employee) – Spokane Valley, WA – June 19, 2016
repetitive easy work with high accuracy demands, pay doesn't reflect expectations. management wasn't willing to resolve interpersonal issues. shortcomings on store preparation are usually made to be the counter's problem. travel stores take up entire day for 4-6 hours of pay.
This job is not for anyone who has a family or responsibilities. You ride for hours at times and only get paid for actual work inside a store. Advancement is not an option due to the lack of work available for new comers.
Team Leader/ Supervisor / Healthcare Supervisor (Current Employee) – Columbus, OH – May 20, 2016
It's a part-time full time job, hours are available twenty-four hours a day seven days a week ten months a year. The slowest part of the season is after thanksgiving up until January first. This is quite possibly the easiest job you could have. You stand there look pretty and push a button scanning bar codes until a store is finished. You can be in a store anywhere from two hours to fifteen hours with breaks and a lunch.
travel pay and pay increases as accuracy and speed improve.
some stores are no where near ready for inventory day.
