Great place to work and enjoy flexible schedules
Inventory Auditor (Current Employee), East Stroudsburg, PAMay 24, 2014
Pros: flexible schedules, good benefits
Cons: hours of the shifts and traveling pay
A typical day at RGIS contains a lot of focus and thought, however, it is a fretwork environment and management and customers like to keep the work day as fun and productive as possible. Management is very focused to the lives of the employees they manage and they know the struggle at starting at the bottom of the chain in the business. The coworkers – more... are very inviting and welcoming to new comers and do not discriminate. The hardest part of the job is the hours we are required to start our days, only mostly because of the travel. The easiest part is the work itself. As long as you have the focus needed to work a full day then it can be one of the best jobs to ask for. – less

Simple and efficient working environment
Inventory Specialist (Former Employee), Marquette, MIMay 20, 2014
Pros: simple work, open schedule, straightforward training, no requirements
Cons: little advancement, mentally draining, no set weekly hours
RGIS is a focused company on completing inventories as quickly and efficiently as possible through the use of their equipment. They allow for all types of schedules and have locations all over the US as well as other countries.

This job is very, very simple and it can become mentally draining since you are required to be working completely silent while – more... counting as such you are only focusing on sets of numbers between 1 and 5, most often, for 3-5 hours at a time. You do not have set weekly hours since most stores only require an inventory every quarter and there is little room for advancement beyond 4 levels of inventory specialists that are solely focused on your rate and efficiency of counting. – less

Great for a part time gig
Inventory Auditor (Current Employee), Alexandria VirginiaMay 17, 2014
Pros: travel, non customer service job.
Cons: prolonged standing, short breaks
I started working for RGIS about 2 weeks ago part time. So far I've only done 3 stores, a Sports Authority, Staples and a Neiman Marcus. I currently have a full time job with another company and I only work RGIS on Sats and Suns. I definitely would not recommend RGIS for a full time job. It's a lot of standing and squating. The best thing about this – more... job is that it's not a customer service job. You don't have to cater to a customer needs or deal with whiny complaining rude customers. You just go in and count..don't even have to talk to anyone. It seems like RGIS don't keep a lot of people. I see that people quit this job in a snap. It is a lot of work with ALL the counting. I should of known this company was suspect because when I went in for an interview and the DM had me sit down, and he handed me a pen and a folder to start filling out my info. I was hired before he even talked to me! If you have two legs and two arms, you are automatically hired and that's great if you really really need a job but I advise you do RGIS only as part time. – less

a typical day
Team Leader (Current Employee), Greenville, NCMay 15, 2014
Pros: travel
Cons: unstable
With Selective scheduling based off of skills will determine how much you get. everyone is giving a set time to meet and where, there is no set time to get off because you get off when the store is done and get back to greenville if the store is out of town.

Lack of upward mobility, general poor job culture
Inventory Taker (Former Employee), Pasco, WAMay 14, 2014
Pros: flexible schedule
Cons: flexibility means you have to be flexible, and not so much the other way around.
This job is mostly a 90 day turn and burn. They promise quality training to help you succeed. The training videos are over a decade old with equipment shown that is equally outdated. The goals set are not reliable, especially when the equipment fails and you are still being measured by the time spent at a store v. the amount of product you scan our – more... count.

The actual work isn't hard, as it's all about learning how to count in an efficient manner, starting with scanning of product one by one and, where applicable, piece counting by grouping of rows and blocks, such as learned in 3rd grade math. The main difference is volume counted in a store compared to what one might encounter in a math book.

The hardest part of the job is lack of routine and making sure to manage your time. So really, not very hard. The complexity comes when, as mentioned, goals for counts is compounded by the dysfunction of equipment that slows down the count and takes away from accuracy, both in making an accurate count and in accurately accounting for the work flow. When such variables count for keeping a job, the poor equipment and training for it does count against job stability and desire to seek upward mobility. It also takes away from developing any employee loyalty and encouragement for job culture when it's mostly about competing against the clock, and those who may be faster than you, and may do better for it, even if not as accurate. You get the sense that they really don't want to keep people around long in the first place, and so there's not much to encourage job growth and development, let alone retention. – less

Engaging workplace that allowed you to be in a new location every time.
Inventory Specialist (Former Employee), Romeoville, ILMay 13, 2014
Cons: the hours
There is no "typical" day at work. Each day involved a new location combined with new personnel and new goals. I was able to learn that patience is key. Also, a vital element to being successful is to do tasks right the first time. Being able to balance speed and accuracy is a delicate process. At times management could not really relate to employees, – more... and that is when issues would arise. Yet, when everybody worked as a team the job got done. – less

RGIS Inventory Specialist (Former Employee), Lubbock, TXMay 9, 2014
Pros: great job benifits for everyone and traveling
Cons: it was seasonal work
Daily counting of merchandise was trying . But having a love for numbers made it challenging . I learn the importance of counting a store accurately . My co- workers were a joy to work with. The travel was the best part of the job.

Poor management, harassment earned someone a raise.
Inventory Specialist (Former Employee), Valley, WAMay 8, 2014
While I worked for RGIS, I encountered an employee one rank above me, and he harassed me, so I reported it, I then learned I was not the first I was the fifth or sixth woman to report harassment against this man, and what did they do? Promote him to a management position. I walked out, and quit.

Productive but very time consuming with chances of sleep deprivation
Inventory Auditor (Current Employee), Queens, NYMay 8, 2014
Pros: travel pay, overtime if necessary
Cons: short breaks, unclean or tight work conditions, long periods of time standing with no rest
RGIS is a company that is very convenient but also can take time away from your necessary sleep you need to function through out the day. Its tedious work that soon gets to be a drag, but overall an easy way to make money.

I wouldn't recommend this job for anyone!
RGIS Inventory Specialist (Former Employee), Tyler, TXMay 5, 2014
Pros: travel
Cons: check fraud, unorganized, unstable, pay raise deception
Horrible managers and supervisors. This company is so unorganized and they sometimes short your pay so you have to constantly watch your checks. They have mediocre software so they have time clock issues then they blame there faults on you. For a point of time we didn't even have a boss. we'd just take phone calls from the office phone and do what they – more... told us. If you're lucky you'll make $200 a pay period(2 weeks). Sometimes our schedule would be off by 3 hours so you'd show up to the office 3 hours early, or the schedule would say meet at store when the store is 3 hours away. if i were you i wouldn't work here. – less
