The starting salary is: $8 per hour and most of the time, you rarely are given more than 15 hours per week.

You DO get paid when there is travel to a job site...(Maybe an hour of pay for that added to your paycheck)

And you get paid for training @ $8 per hour.

You get more hours if you are very speedy with your inventory counting. Otherwise, forget it.

Back in 2002 I started at an unheard of 10 dollars an hour. They've steadily dropped since. Probably is around 8 dollars everywhere.

I don't really know as I personally have never worked for them but I suspect it IS in fact a lot of work and a lot of hurry up and wait involved.

From what I have read, one can sit around for days with no income and then have to spend all night in a grocer working at top speed. Not the best of employment situations.

And even though I know I will be slammed against the wall for saying it, but a great many workers in the US are simply not used to actually having to perspire on a job. We are sort of spoiled over here on this side of the pond but that is rapidly changing. We have a lot of people who are used to making about the equivalent of 25p an hour in Mexico and they are willing to come here on foot and earn many times that amount. It is so bad we are trying desperately to build an actual wall to keep them out - not the good folks that come legally but the ones who ignore the rules and just show up in the middle of the night.

I suppose I could have done the same thing back when I wanted to move to Scotland but that swim was a big deterrent. :)

When I started back in September '04 (in Tulsa, Oklahoma), starting wage was $7.50/hour with $6.25/hour for the training course they would have you do and a .50 raise being offered after a performance evaluation at 100 hours worked. Travel time is half of your pay or minimum wage, whichever is higher, after one full hour of drive time. Nowadays, starting pay is $8.50/hour with a $1.00 raise being offered after a performance evaluation at 100 hours worked. Assistant Team Leaders and Team Leaders make anywhere from .50 to $2.00 extra over auditors (before performance raises) due to extra responsibility and workload. I do not know what District Managers, Area Managers, and Assistant Area Managers make (though I know AAMs are still hourly employees) but it is pitifully low for what they do and the time they are required to put in. There are no paid vacations for auditors. ATLs, TLs, and AAMs need to put in a time off request form if they want time off and DMs and AMs get about 10 paid vacation days.

As for hours, do not expect (if you start late in the year) a lot of hours to be handed to you. When the new year comes around then you will most likely been given more hours then you can really work without collapsing from exhaustion. Work is fairly steady (partly depending on the staffing requirements of stores and the staffing of your district) throughout the year with exception of late October, November, and December.

Starting pay is exactly $9.00 per hour and will most likely stay at that rate until you quit,you will not get a raise after 90 days or 100 hours like its stated in the employee handbook(after complaining to the corporate office about my 90 day raise i never recieved my district still refused to pay me) there are no travel benifits with rgis they do offer car pools to job locations that are far payed for by the mile but you have to ride in the company van but the catch is this they only have a select few people they let use the van so more than likely you will not get a seat, now you can set up your own car pool if you'd like(your car with your friends) but you will not get payed. There is nothing good about working a rgis inventory you will be robbed of your life pay rate and man-hood if you let them.

You do not automatically receive the 90 day/100 hour raise. You are supposed to do a performance evaluation before you receive it. Other raises are based upon your performance otherwise known as APH. At each wage rate there is a different APH goal for any particular store and the more APH goals you meet, the more likely you are to get a raise. Your APH is calculated by dividing total pieces (or dollars if a financial inventory) by your time minus any breaks or lunch taken. As for company vehicles, your district must be penny pinching since the one here will go out and rent vehicles if we do not have enough space for everyone. Also, if you drive yourself to an out of town inventory then they are supposed to pay you the same as if you drove in a company vehicle.

You will only get paid for driving your own vehicle to an out of town job if there wasn't room in the company van, there's only a couple of people making the trip and you're willing to drive your car rather than the van, they find they need more people at a job when they get to the inventory location, and you drive (out of town) to help out, etc..

You won't get paid for the miles you drive if it's just because you don't want to ride in the van, want to smoke an the way and you can't in the van, want to go somewhere else afterwards, etc..

If you qualify to drive the van, you get paid for your time on the road from picking the van up at the office to arriving at the inventory, then from leaving the job til you deliver the van back to the office. Not sure of the rate, though.

They also have higher taxes and a higher standard of living so of course their pay rate would be more than ours here in the States.

In Tulsa (D163), starting wage is now $9.00/hour including the two days of training that we do (as far as I know anyways). There is no more 90 day/100 hour performance evaluation raise and raises are now completely calculated by meeting certain APH goals in different store types.

true they have a higher standard of living. however, the COST of living in relation to the US taxes, and now with crude oil over $100 a barrel for every one not just the US they really do almost balance. (funny little rgis pun) advantage UK. Although if you make $12 per hour after any respectable amount of time, verses the afore mentioned $14 per hour TO START in the UK ! I think you get it now.

Hi Sunny,

Do people "flunk" the 90 day training? Do they get fired if they can't count fast enough? How many people flunk out?

What is the counting speed they have to reach? (I think RGIS calls it APH)

Does RGIS have a rating for the fastest stock takers? (I have heard the term "top gun"). How fast do you have to count to get the top rating?

Thanks for answers!

(go Man U football!)

Everything is derived from your District Starting Wage (DSW) and your ASsET ranking.
When you start you are an Auditor at the DSW, if you count a certain percantage above what an auditor is required you will get a raise to Specialist whcih is paid at DSW PLUS Whatever (I think it is $0.50). If you exceed what the average per hour is for that ranking your raised to Expert and and so on until you get to Top Gun.
On top of that there are "adder roles" and "Team Leader Adder Roles". Adder roles are roles in an inventory they pay an extra per hour. They can be Flow Leader, Recounter, Store Supervisor (Small/Med/Large), Control Desk, Prowler etc. Certain adder roles will not pay extra if you are a Top Gun. In my District Top Gun is paid $11 an hour without any adder role. I think they hire at $8 so you can figure out pay rasies at each step of ASsET
The computer takes your averages from all rated events (inventories) and will adjust your pay quarterly. If it is a deudction they will warn you that you have a specific time to increase your APH before they take the money per hour away.

Oh and you also have store bounus, if in a store you exceed the APH required for the store they will add money per hour to your pay FOR THAT STORE only. Not all stores are part of the bonus program.

Oh if you fail the test or training you have to wait 30 days before reapplying.

Hi Zippy! In my district (411 Seattle), the starting pay is $10 an hour as a newly hired employee. RGIS offers medical "benefits" after you passed the 3-months review period. But this benefits are not beneficial because it is the hourly employee who pays 100% for the premium.

Great perks or special treats? Well, that depends on how you define "perks" or "treats." Everything is relative here at RGIS. But don't take my word for it. It takes one to know one.

Each District has their own DSW or District Starting Wage could be as low as minimum wage.
You are hired at DSW as an Auditor as they reveiw your average per hour you can get raises to other "ASEsT" rankings or Auditor Specialist Expert or Top Gun and that raises your per hour pay.
Some stores are in the bonus program where if everyone averages in the store an Average Per Hour higher then the calculated APH (each person is supposed to count for that customer (account) at their ASSeT Level) you get extra per hour. BE FORWARNED if you bonus in one store and do not bonus in another store that is a bonus account they will take the difference away from you.
So I bonused in Staples got an extra $0.48 an hour but missed the bonus in Gap they took $0.24 an hour from me, I kept the difference.
You also get extra "adder roles" which are paid per hour in a store if you supervise it, run the control (computer) desk etc.
There is no specific average per hour as each account has a different APH per ASSeT type.
If you travel more than an hour to or from a store you are paid travel pay.
FWIW

APH is relative. It depends on one's ASET(Auditor, Specialist, Expert, Topgun)level AND store APH. Let me explain: At the application stage of employment for an hourly position, you will perform some "trade test" or "speed test" to prequalify you for the position (Don't worry, no "drug test" necessary). If you passed the test, you will be hired first as an AUDITOR, the beginner's equivalent in the ASET level.

But once you will be assigned to count actual stores, you have to meet the minimum store APH requirement. The RGIS supervisor incharge of the inventory will specify the minimum APH requirements based on your ASET level. For instance, in grocery stores, MINIMUM APH based on your ASET level may look similar to this:

Auditor: 3,200 (Average Per Hour)
Specialist: 4,000 (Average Per Hour)
Expert: 5,200 (Average Per Hour)
TopGun: 6,000 (Average Per Hour)

So, to go back to your question, "What is the minimum APH just to keep your job?" As long as you can keep up or exceed your minimum ASET APH, you can still work for the company. BUT, APH and/or good behavior DO not guarantee your employment because RGIS can terminate your employment anytime at will.
