labor work, hard on the body
Inventory Associate (Former Employee) –  Pennsauken, NJDecember 19, 2017
If you need a job they are always hiring. A job that is always hiring means people are always getting fired or they quit.The hours are early and sometimes run long.
Pros
overtime
Cons
they don't pay time and a half for overtime

My coworkers where amazing
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CADecember 19, 2017
This company is not what I thought it was going to be. Recruits told us full time with benefits paid holidays and sick pay. NONE of that was true. Job is only permanent for the first four months and then you are left out into the wind with what ifs. Lowe’s could decide to not continue with WIS or only chose to keep in board 4 out of the 10 people. Or they could move it to in house with their own employees. The job itself of down stocking isn’t hard it’s just all the other stuff. Fighting to get paid what is owed to you per the hours your work should not be an issue every single week. Management pretty much says it’s not the application you have to use on your phone but I find that extremely hard to believe when no one is being paid correctly.
Pros
Cool crew
Cons
Management. Pay. No certainty

Counter (Former Employee) –  Lexington, SCDecember 18, 2017
Working at Wis Internationals was pretty fun and a easy task day today. Working at a fast pate makes the job a lot quicker then it seems. I recommend this to people who want simple jobs.

Highly stressful work environment due to lack of support....
Area Manager (Former Employee) –  Columbia, SCDecember 17, 2017
Training was very inadequate... Four weeks of training but only one week of AM training to learn ALL processes and programs to run office. I was told by DM that i was the "quinea pig" to this training. Support from DM was very scarce as he only visited my office 2 (a total of 3 days) times in 3 months. ANY response to a question was "call your trainer" or "your IM should know".
IM/ assistant felt threatened by my presence in the office and was at best a 20-30% asset to the office...most times he could not be located and has no real drive to make the office a success...was/is VERY negative concerning new PAL program that was implemented by company not to mention he was allowed to run office for several months prior to my arrival which caused ALL other employees... MORs/ISs and IAs to adopt his same attitude of not caring about company OR performance...which IS the cause of a very poor and well below minimum P&L in last quarter...

Every active job
Inventory Specialist (Current Employee) –  Virginia Beach, VADecember 17, 2017
•Teaches you how to keep a speedy space & take time seriously.
•Competitive work place.
•Interaction with different people
•Fun environment .
I would say the hardest part of the job (which isn't that hard) is keeping up with how different stores like their inventory to be done.

Working at WIS
Inventory Associate (Former Employee) –  Woodlawn, MDDecember 16, 2017
Working at WIS International was very enlightening, seeing how I met new people everyday, got paid for travel time, and also was able to get off of work before 4:00 pm most of the time. Although the pay was decent, the downfall from getting paid weekly was a limited amount of hours available sometimes.
Pros
Paid Travel Time/Hour Break
Cons
extended periods of off time

Inventory Manager (Current Employee) –  Danville, ILDecember 15, 2017
The job is very fast paced as it is production based. You are gone from home often. Very hard job to do if you have a family. Pay isn't horrible, but could be better.
Pros
Traveling.
Cons
Not very flexible

Traveling Inventory Associate (Current Employee) –  Staten Island, NY 10303December 13, 2017
Learned absolutely nothing at this job.Loved the traveling but that is where it begins and ends really. I feel like this job treats you more like a slave than an actual person. There is also a lot of favoritism as well.

Horrible Experience
INVENTORY ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) –  Morrow, GADecember 13, 2017
I wouldn't ever recommend this place to any one looking for work. The management and pay was very poor especially for the amount of work we did. Then what makes it bad, you had to be there by 4 am, no later than 4:30.

Not very consistent with hours
Inventory Specialist (Current Employee) –  Hickory, NCDecember 9, 2017
For anyone looking to just work 40 hours and go home, this job is not for you. You typically had to get up at 5 in the morning and had 1 hour to get ready to board the shuttle van. from 6 in the morning the stores would be an hour away and then work from 7 until the entire store was counted. Often we were so understaffed we stayed there working for about 12 hours a day with 1 hour lunch no breaks or anything. Your supervisors are very friendly but often try to pick the easy work for themselves. There is lots of favoritism and the management does not act like bosses they act like friends that swear so much its not even fun. I did this job for traveling and honestly youll be lucky if you stop at a motel with no bedbugs.
Pros
coworkers are genuine people
Cons
poor pay, poor conditions, poor management, understaffed, horrible hours

This job can be somewhat tedious and it is extremely early mornings and a lot of time spent traveling in vans. The money can be good if traveling. You work and travel closely with other employees so being able to get along with others in important.
Pros
travel wages

uncomfortable vans
