Have two arms, two legs. That's it.

They make you take a "math test" during the interview, and quiz you on a "history test" as well after watching a video about the company.

Can anyone tell me what is on the math test for RGIS inventory, i.e. is just addition and subtraction or are there decimals and fractions?

The math test is just pictures of circles and squares and you have to count how many of them there are. I was even told that if I didn't pass, I could take it again. Then you'll have to take what they call a typing test. All that is is scanning barcodes on a big poster and counting how many pieces there are of that item and typing that amount in. It's really easy. Again I was told if I didn't pass then I could take it again. I'm in Colorado too so I am pretty sure your test should be the same as mine.

I have worked for RGIS for almost 3 months. My experience has been completely positive. I have entered the Area Manager program...the area manager basically manages the office for a particular geographic area. He/she has an A.A.M. (Associate Area Manager), Team Leaders, and auditors. The AAM is your assistant. You and they do the office work, financials, some customer calls, etc., and of course a few audits to stay in practice. The Team Leaders organize the audit crews, and assure the schedule you provide (which you get from corporate) is staffed and ready. The auditors are the ones who do the counts.

I can safely say if you have half a brain, you are qualified. Accuracy is their big push, so estimating a count is grounds for termination. As with anything, if you put forth an honest effort, you will do well.

You are evaluated every 90 days, or every 100 audit hours (after working 100 hours in an audit situation). Pay increases are given for increased APH (average per hour - productivity) and for accepting increased responsibility...ie., running the control desk during the inventory, etc.

You can apply online here: www.rgis.com/careers/jobposting.aspx?id=1

But as has been stated, you do need to take a math test. It's not even really a "MATH" test. It's proving you can count, spatial relationships, etc.

Good luck!

Don't take showers and not having any kind of college degree will really help you get your foot in the door.

Hahaha - Funny stuff. Albeit true!

Since I posted that I've left due to several factors:

1. They don't pay for hours worked.
2. (at least in my district office) TERRIBLE HORRIBLE (beyond words) management
3. Backstabbing beyond belief.
4. I didn't care for the peytons place mentality. Sheesh everyone was doin everyone... :-O

A few more "qualifiers" to be considered qualified:

1. Living and breathing makes you qualified. The following don't hurt.
2. If you are male, be open to having male on male relationships.
3. If you are female, see #2 and change "male" to "female."
(Not that there's anything wrong with that...whatever makes you happy!)
4. Be an absolutely horrible driver with a suspended license to guarantee yourself a driver position.
5. Felony convictions certainly don't hurt.

I could go on, but suffice to say promises that were made to me upon my hire for management opportunities fell thru when the "new" manager felt threatened. I got pulled out of stores, my hours got cut to like 5-6 hours a pay period (2 weeks)

Complaints to the district manager fell on deaf ears, as did complaints to the operations manager. Now all the "good" people have left the local office and it's crumbling under the newbie weight of no one knowing what the hell is going on. No one can run stores except the area manager and her aam, who both are completely lacking in any management skill whatsoever.

Oh well, I'm out. Thank the good lord for small favors!

Good luck to anyone else who is still there!

PS,
When you get your letter to opt in for the overtime lawsuit, you should fill it out and send it back. The worst that will happen is that you will receive backpay for all they ripped you off.

I worked for RGIS several years ago and am going back next week. They have offered to let me come back a couple of other times in the last 6 years but the time didn't seem right until now. I was an area manager, a good one too and had another am that was okay and a dm that the company thought the world of at the time. He could do no wrong. But now they are finally gone and I am looking forward to going back. I loved this job and even though I am 41 I still would like to do it because I was good at it. I think if a person would just do their job and stick with it it would be a great career choice for anyone, especially the younger set.

It's really like any job in retail: low wages, weird hours and the chance to work with young people. Mostly they want people who show up on time and don't steal s**t. It's counting things and writing down the number, over and over. Not challenging, but not everyone wants a challenge.

Could someone please tell me where I can find a practice math test for RGIS. I took the test and I didn't past. I wasn't familiar with this type of test or what I was doing. I want to take the test over, but I want to be prepared this time. Could someone please tell me how to pass the test or give me a website or something so that I can practiced. Thank you.

If it's the same one I took, it is basically a sampling of how items are stacked on store shelves. Cans of soup, for example. Tops of cans are round. They may be stacked two on top of another x 6 rows or more. Cereal is put on store shelves a certain way as are all items in a grocery store. So think of it that way. Don't think of it as a "math" test. Think of the test instead of how things are put on shelves in a grocery store because that is how you are going to be taking inventory. Cans of soup, cans of tuna, cereal boxes, etc. Hope that helps!

Block Counting, how items are stacked on pallets, one level has back row of four but the next has three but each level has 10 on it no matter how it is stacked. Then you got rows with items missing etc. Stuff like that.

I don't think there is anyplace with the test online, it is propritary to RGIS.

I applied for a part time inventory taker job...got this quick response...
"An automated review of your application has been completed. We regret to inform you that you did not meet the minimum requirements for this position at this time and, as a result, you have not been selected to move forward in the application process."

I managed a Blockbuster for 9 years and was promoted to product/merchandising for the franchise and did that for almost 3 before my job was eliminated. Took their online assessment and thought I did ok...numerous questions had no right or wrong answer, though and it's hard to know what answer they really want.

Chris,
Sorry they turned you down, things have really changed at RGIS and definitely not for the better. When I went back it was awful, they had the workers on the travel team standing at the front of the Wal-marts just acting like a gang. This is in Tennessee too. One of the best stores they did inventory in and the people were complaining like crazy. Did anyone in mgmt care? Not hardly! I had worked for them before, training for DM, hired people for five years and usually if they had a pulse they were hired. I knew I could train them and we did a helluva job, we were the golden team for sure for quite some time. I thought I could make a difference when I went back but some people just let the bad go too far.

I took the test & received a "no reply" email a few hours later.-failed to meet the minimum requirements...
I just LOVED the "zombie" test. I usually RUN from any job that requires a personality test up front. HOW LAZY CAN THEY GET? Is it THAT tedious to sit down with a person & assess them for yourself or what? This is just one more example of the many ways that our round heads won't fit into their square holes. Don't let it get you down, it's all BS & unless we learn to swallow it then we'll just keep getting it crammed in our faces. Maybe we can fake a swallow & then spit it out when no one is looking. Doubt it! We just aren't cut out for keeping our mouths shut are we? It's a shame that these knuckle heads are to retarded to think for THEMSELVES cuz they sure are missing out on super smart reliable people. THEIR LOSS!
