Get to work do your job and go home.
Inventory Clerk (Former Employee), Cerritos, CAAugust 15, 2014
Pros: it is a job. work around your schedule
Cons: low pay poor management, not enough hours, no benefits, no job security
Depending on store size will depend on the amount of people that are there to count product. First there is a huddle with the manager running the inventory. They tell you how many items you should be counting an hour. Learning to be quick and accurate takes time. I learned to do both. I learned to keep my head down, my mouth quiet and I never really – more... talked to my coworkers unless it had to do with work. The hardest part of the job is maintaining an 80% piece count per hour. The most enjoyable part of the job is when we finish early and get to go home early. – less

Good "second job" to have
Inventory Specialist (Current Employee), Beaverton, ORAugust 14, 2014
The employees are great, most jobs are made to be fun as in..."whistle while you work" kinda thing..! You get to go all over & find the smashing deals everywhere! That part is great! It shouldn't be viewed as your only job though, unless you only need to work minimal hours per week but on the positive - you Do get Paid every week so that's great too!

Long hours and hard to stay awake
Inventory associate (Former Employee), Lakewood, WAAugust 7, 2014
Didnt do well with this work place only becasue the hours were demanding. I am ok with working but I prefer normal buisness hours. Inventory is a job you must be on top of at all times. One mistake could change things for the worst in an important count.

Fun place to work
Inventory Specialist (Former Employee), Dayton, OHAugust 4, 2014
Pros: you get paid for travel
Cons: long travel times possible
This place is easy and hard in the same breathe, most of the time when you do an inventory you do when the store is closed and the heating/cooling is off. Travel can be difficult if there is a bunch of people riding in the vans. Co-workers are nice and very helpful and seem to be friendly.

INVENTORY ASSOCIATE (Former Employee), Tampa, FLJuly 31, 2014
Pros: seen many different cities.
Cons: no being paid travel time
The hardest part was having to be gone at least for a full 24 hours and only getting paid for maybe 10. This company did not offer paid time while driving. A typical day would inquire traveling some distance and using a scanner gun and just counting everything in the store. The most enjoyable part was be the end result of feeling accomplished when the – more... store was done counting. – less

Horrbile Place to work and company could care less!
Inventory Associate (Current Employee), Worcester, MAJuly 30, 2014
Pros: free to look for work else where
Cons: long tedious work hours for low pay
I've been here at this job for a year and this is what I have experienced. Long hours with out proper breaks as outline by state law no idea when I would be returning home from a job that has run long to the tune of 16 hours of which somehow the company can nickel and dime it down to 12 for reasons of breaks that you should have taken but weren't allowed – more... and travel time that doesn't begin until you've been on the road for over hour "distance away" sorry traffic doesn't count! I've had no benefits nor vacation time unless you count the time your out of work for 2 months and told to go on welfare because there isn't any work and it's a seasonal slum. All and all the way this company chooses to disrespect you at every turn in the name of more profit is down right distasteful. All one has to do now is a goolge search to see how poorly this company treats it's employees and operates in other states that don't enforce a humane level of protection for it's work force. – less

Very relaxed, independent environment.
Inventory Associate (Former Employee), Fridley, MNJuly 23, 2014
Most of the work we do is independent, working with our machines or "wizards". I'd use my machine to scan each individual item on a shelf, then afterwards count how many items there are and write it down. Accuracy is the biggest key to inventory, because if my counts were not completely accurate, I'd have to start over. Every work day is in different – more... retail stores and in different locations in all areas of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, North Dakota, and South Dakota. When I show up for work, my manager tells me what section of the store to start scanning in and what direction to move in as I complete shelves. After my manager gives me my directions, I spend the rest of the time working independently unless I need assistance. My coworkers are friendly, but we don't socialize while we're working. Instead of socializing, my coworkers and I would compete to see who could scan shelves the fastest and most accurate. Doing so made the job more fun, and was good for the company because swiftness is one of the qualities WIS prefers. The hardest part of the job was having to work in stock rooms, where most of the items are unorganized and piled in storage bins with 1000+ quantity. – less

INVENTORY MANAGER (Former Employee), Houston TXJuly 22, 2014
Basic job opportunity..Nothing much to say actually. Management can stand to be more flexible with employees. Not many opportunities exist past Inventory Manager positions. Work environment is forever changing which is great for people that need a different look. Pay is low even on management levels but opportunities for second chance job seekers are – more... available. – less

Traveling Inventory Associate (Former Employee), San Diego, CAJuly 20, 2014
Pros: traveling, meeting new people
Cons: short time being home, lastute changes
typical work day - going into a store scanning inventory focusing to be as accurate as possible by counting using my fingers/taking things off shelves or out of boxes. Hated being told to scan faster/count only what I see which caused quite abit of mistakes to be made.

what I learned - inventory jobs suite me.

management - n/a

my co-workers - half – more... were interesting people, helped each other out if we missed/forgot to do something in a store while other half wanted to get in/out of the store asap.

most enjoyable part of the job - traveling, meet interesting people. – less

Racing from tags to tags .. fun !
Inventory Associate (Former Employee), Clarksdale MSJuly 17, 2014
Pros: free days/nights at the hotel
Cons: short breaks
Everyday of work was a fun day for me. From racing to tags and trying to beat the other person's cph was a exercise. I enjoyed it. I never let the fun get in the way of me completing my assignments. The managers and my coworkers made it easy for me but no one let me have any short cuts and I thought that was fair. The hardest part of the job was trying – more... to stay in the top 10. My reason for that was because there were so many people faster than I was. I loved my job. – less

Inventory Specialist (Former Employee), San Diego, CAJuly 16, 2014
The work usually took place at night and every night we would travel to different locations. I learned how to efficiently take inventory. Management gave feedback on how to complete sections and increase your inventory production. The hardest part was going to hardware stores and counting small objects. The most enjoyable part was being able to travel – more... to so many different locations. – less
