Pros: the employer schedules you according to your availability, making it possible for me to attend college and work.
Cons: there is a lot of time spent traveling, and you don't get paid for travel.
A typical day at work starts around 4 am, traveling to various parts of Illinois to different stores to do their inventories. My team and I use a machine called an RM-1 to count all of the product in the store. I am always learning something new about the machines we use and continuously learning different ways to audit the product. The management there – more... are efficient and expect nothing but your best performance every day on the job. While I don't get the opportunity to get to know most of my co-workers, (I work with different teams of people every day) the ones that I have gotten to know are very interesting people from all different walks of life. The hardest part of the job is that it is very physical. You definitely cannot be afraid of heights, and you have to be willing to get in and get dirty to get to some of the product. The most enjoyable part of the job is that I am always working in a different place. It is sometimes nice to have a change of scenery every day. – less
