Inventory Specialist (Current Employee) – Raleigh – 3 October 2015
I enjoy working for Pics inventory my co -worker and manager are friendly and easy to get a long with. It's a great part time job. The company is very straight forward with what they are looking for from their employee.
Customer service manager (Irvine Branch) (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – 11 September 2015
Under the stewardship of the original founders, PICS was hands down the best work experience I have ever been party to. It is a shame that recent changes in ownership have led to many cuts in the tenured staff in favor of consultants, outsourcing experts, and other change management specialists.
Still, PICS provides industry-level services to its clients and the remaining staff is a pleasure to work with. I recommend this company to anyone that has aspirations to learn about the safety and prequalification industry.
good benefits, decent pay, free snacks, awesome team
Is undergoing structural changes, "consultants" ahoy
Supplier Enablement Representative (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA – 12 April 2015
great company, but not very good at recognizing potential, and already proven employees. Secure as long as you do your work. Management is pretty good, just tend do go through management changes quite often.
Cubicle styled workplace, not greatly stimulating, but steady and will pay the bills.
Inside Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – 17 March 2015
This was a good job when it came to the coworkers and support from immediate supervisors. However, the lack of acknowledgement from management, and the nature of the job behind a desk all day in a cubicle. Made this a very boring job, not very stimulating. High turnover rate.
Some opportunities for moving up in the company though.
Auditor (Current Employee) – Columbia, SC – 1 February 2015
Has a lot of benefits to it. The district managers in Columbia are great in their field and are willing to work alongside with other jobs depending on times. You work alongside around a crew of 20 and connect with many others in different businesses
Ken Herrold and Mayra Salinas are easy to work with
Good job for those who like to have a social life.
Inventory Auditor (Current Employee) – Hazleton, PA – 1 October 2014
Not much room for advancement at all. Holidays means no work for at least a week. Around Christmas it is like a month and a half. Get up early everyday, like around 4;30. But you are usually home at 2 or 3 PM. They have a ridiculous policy where they pay you minimum wage while you travel to the jobs, and if you are not the driver, you dont get paid for the first and last 30 minutes of travel time. Other than that, if you need money and don't want to do much, pretty good job here. They are always hiring because the turnover is high.
Inventory Specialist (Former Employee) – 4150 Grange Hall Rd Holly, MI 48442 – 7 August 2014
A typical day at work would consist of Inventory Organizer, scanning products and storing them in the computer base. I learned how to use a calculated hand held computer to keep count of inventory, and also how to work in a fast paced environment. Management was very hands on and determined to get the job done. My co-workers were fast-learners and focused people. Standing in the freezer aisle, and its very cold with no sweater or gloves. The most enjoyable part was working with friendly, positive people.

Auditiing Customer Care Rep (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – 15 May 2014
Co-workers are great and willing to help assist in any way. They work hours are good BUT you don't get 40 hours per week. The supervisor tries to get the employees suggestions on events for everyone to take part in outside of work. It feels more like Customer Service rather than the Call Center type office (which is good). They have excellent benefits to offer.
Company events, co-workers, benefits
low pay, plus work less than 40 hours a week, notice added task to your original job description
Auditor (Current Employee) – Columbia SC – 4 May 2014
I find the job to be exciting in some aspects, and repetitive in others, all employees are tracked by their productivity so it allows for some competitiveness every day. It helped remind me how friendly competition helps you grow professionally as we all want to be able to excel and perform our jobs well and the fact we are tracked every day makes it so that you are constantly trying to improve your skills and abilities and as a team we continue to grow everyday.
Inventory Specialist (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – 27 November 2012
I had more fun with PICS than Reliant. Transportation was more comfortable. PICS paid more per diem. The actual work is hard but not complicated. There's no clock watching because work isn't over until all the work is done. Virtually no customer service is involved. In my case at least. I worked with the employees at the store i was auditing. A relaxed environment where everyone is working together to get the store counted accurately. They are technically your employers but it's possible to have fun and work too. You get to meet some pretty interesting people while working and traveling. PICS gave us more downtime to relax at our hotels. We'd travel to a centrally located hotel and travel to our stores from there. Which meant that our days were free to site see or just relax. With that other company we traveled all day and worked all night. Getting a good hotel is a lottery. Almost never do you get one with both a minifridge and microwave(some neither), working air conditioner, more than two pillows, a tv with audio/visual outputs, and a clean water dispenser on site.
per diem, travel, hotel stay, relaxed work environment
