Productive and enjoyable environment.
Merchandiser (Current Employee), Chicago, ILFebruary 9, 2014
Pros: the pros are flexability, and working independantly.
Cons: no benifits.
For me a typical work day would include lots of walking, bending and reaching.
I have learned many things. One of the most important things I've learned is accuracy, and time management.
Management is very helpful and informative.
Because I work independently I have no coworkers.
The hardest part of the job is juggling sites to meet deadlines.
The most – more... enjoyable part of the job is meeting new people. – less

No Growth & Poor Management
Item Management Analyst (Current Employee), Chicago, ILJanuary 30, 2014
Pros: good benefits
Cons: low salary, poor management
IRi is a company that doesn't value its employees. There is no growth opportunity for those who work hard, only for those who are favored. Salary is poor and when one requests a pay raise they will find every reason not to grant it.

Ideal for college students or semi-retired person.
Field Service Representative (Current Employee), New York, NYFebruary 5, 2013
Pros: you can get a discount with a phone company or gym.
Cons: no formal lunch. you eat when it is convinient.
There is not medical or dental benefits and no full-time work, only part-time. You basically work on your own going to stores and scanning the upc code on products. The company has 6 weeks of paid on the job training. The 1st two weeks you may work 4 hours, 6 after the 3rd or 4th week and then 8 by the end of the 5th or 6th week.
The hardest part of – more... the job is that you do not know what your pay check will be because it is not hourly, but there is a lot of flexibility. For example if you are to visit two stores in one day, and for some reason you cannot go to both that same day, you can visit the 2nd store the next day.
After some 3 or 4 months they may give you more hours to work depending on the needs of the company. For example if you were hired to work 10 to 20 hours per week, you might start working at other stores if someone is out that day or week. So you may not work 20 hours per week until there is a need for it.
The title of the job is Field Service Representative. – less

Very Unstable
Director (Current Employee), Chicago, ILMay 28, 2012
Management is non-existent and they don't understand the concept of establishing a process and letting it take hold. Constant change of direction, and upper management cannot stay on a path long enough to achieve stability or success. An absolute disconnect. Health benefits are great as they have BC/BS.

IRI field-rep position review
Field Representative (Former Employee), Chicago, ILApril 14, 2012
Pros: great where setting own schedules is concerned
Cons: people that can be quite difficult, as well as low, low hours.
Great where being on own as a field-rep is concerned but they also knocked hours down to eight or less, plus I was the only field-rep in the area and they never hired any back-up if I happened to get ill, and when I went to leave the field-manager said he did not want to come and hire anyone else and was very, very nasty about the fact that the job – more... also wasn't meeting financial needs, plus that I wasn't happy. I did learn alot about marketing after coming into that with no knowledge however. – less
