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

Travel Based
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

a non-steady job
Inventory Supervisor (Current Employee), Winchester, VAJuly 11, 2014
Pros: 30 min breaks
Cons: healthcare
This job is not a hard job to do but the hours are crazy, all times of day and night. The management is not the greatest but they will work with you when it comes to avalibilty and jobs. The hardest part about the job is to keep the customers happy and making sure that the count is good. If you want to work all the time you will be working day , night – more... and overnight with hardly any sleep. – less

inventory associate (Former Employee), Staten Island, NYJune 29, 2014
Cons: breaks are short. i got sick because of this conpany
I USED TO WORK THERE, one of the head counters, got treated unfairly by the manager himself Staten island wis is ran unfairly all supervisors are cool but the manager himself is rude he kurses at the employees calls us names tries to use us and then wanna fire after that man talks so much stuff at work to everyone and also don't let them try and get – more... you it's not 10 an hour its 9.50 and you don't ever get the right amount of hours you was working traveling and your wait time .. Victoria secrets are a good 12-15 hours but you think I seen that on my check? Nope and never got 50 for finding them so many people to work also they hire anyone and everyone that's why no one gets the right pay because there's a weekly budget and he can't over exceed it or he will get into trouble .. And this wis has a lot of pending lawsuits so be careful – less

management (Former Employee), philadelphiaJune 27, 2014
Cons: everything
Horrible company to work for. From the Area Manager in S. Philly up its horrible! It's a wonder the A.M. can tie her own shoes. If you are planning to work for WIS make sure you keep track of your hours worked to compare to the hours you actually get paid for. Dishonesty is about the only thing management does well.

wharehouse inventory specialist
Inventory specialist (Former Employee), Fayetteville, NCJune 25, 2014
Pros: paid travel, pay based on exper. could chng
Cons: high turnover, no leadership
my time at wis inventory services were encouragable .I learned how to do data entry using handheld scanners granted it gave me some good experience. There was a lack of leadership with the team leaders I believe they didn't want you to have or get to learn to fast .the faster you keyed the product codes in during the inventory the speed and count were – more... being recorded at the head computer being shown to the customer by the supervisor.the hardest thing I had to learned was they keys on the the handheld were like a computer theirself but I was not computer literate and they did not have they time or the patience to help you catch up to keep the costomer happy and for us to stay ahead of the competition we had to be quick and efficient .I like that I got to be given a chance to get the experience with that I just wasn't a big fan of it. – less
