Job was convenient whilst completing school.
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  OntarioFebruary 22, 2016
Typical day at work consisted of counting everything in a particular store. Sometimes more than one store.
Learned patience and perseverance.
Management roles didn't particularly influence day-to day or in-store performance. It was supervisory roles which hailed to be the most important.
Many co-workers from all walks of life.
Hardest part of the job was the in-store supervisory role and customer service, both of which I excelled at.
The most enjoyable part was the hardest part.
Pros
Travel
Cons
One person's mistakes could ruin the day of 40 others.

very flexible scheduling.
Area Manager (Current Employee) –  Hamilton, onSeptember 10, 2015
The hours consistently are pretty decent.
The best part of working in this area is the people. For the most part, they make what is a slightly mundane job (counting things in a retail store) into a fun, decent day.
Pros
flexible scheduling
Cons
unpredictable hours

Great Company, Tough Supervisors
Inventory Auditor (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ONAugust 29, 2015
Worked at the company as an Inventory Auditor for a couple months. The pay was quite good for the amount of work that was done. As well, schedules were flexible and easily complied with my life as a student. However, the supervisors were a little rigid and did not take to kindly to mistakes or inquiries. Overall, the position of Inventory Auditor is quite good, if that's the career path you want to go into.
Pros
Flexible Schedule, Pay
Cons
Supervisors

Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ONAugust 17, 2015
A typical day consist of meeting at meet spot, driving a couple hours, then working 3 to 15 hours, drive back home, and repeat. I learned to take naps, and drink lots of coffee. The management is great, and flexible. Co- workers are what make the company run, also the hardest part of your job, is to deal with them everyday. Working was the best part of my day.
Pros
Different work places each day
Cons
Your On-Call no matter what your job discription is

Everyone is Disposable
Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Oshawa, ONJuly 20, 2015
Management just doesn't care. They follow the minimum labour law regulations and aren't afraid to break them. Travel places frequently in a cramped vehicle that is generally poorly maintained - and only get paid after the first hour of travel (minimum wage to boot). They have no problems ripping you off whenever they can to make more profit so watch your pay stubs! They employ the oddest people, mostly because the job is so simple.

The job is not for the weak of heart - you will be up and down and sitting crunched up 95% of the time. If you're not small or elderly, up the ladder you go! Is it safe? Sure. Hurry up and count.
Pros
Its a job
Cons
Travel, low-wages, unpaid breaks, hard on the body, shift, never know when you'll be getting home

Good part time job but very unstable
Inventory Auditor (Current Employee) –  Barrie, ONMarch 28, 2015
RGIS is great company to work for but with inventory business it is feast or famine and so hard to maintain a budget on this when one payday you will get full time salary and next payday you will be lucky to get 15 hours pay. Great part time job if going back to school but that can even be hard as some store counts can be all nighters and hard if you have class in morning.
Pros
Always some sort of work and little bit of money
Cons
Very long hours at times and on feet for 8 to 16 hours

On-call casual work with strict rules
Inventory Specialist (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BCMarch 6, 2015
The work environment at RGIS is very casual and employees you may interact with are friendly, however I found that when I needed assistance confusion would arise because there of multiple methods of procedure. Management was helpful when approached but often times while on shift I felt that it was implied there only one way to get a job done to maximize efficiency. Working with people is very much something I enjoy and is what stands out most for me in a job.
Pros
interaction with coworkers and simple tasks
Cons
unstable work hours and varying shift durations

Auditor (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ONMarch 4, 2015
A typical day at work would be getting the machines ready for the data it would receive for the day. I learned that it can be easy and hard to do inventory for different stores. the management were great to work for. Co-workers were very friendly. the hardest part was getting prices for different items that had no prices on them. the most enjoyable part of the job was getting to meet new people every day.
Pros
the people were great to work for and work with.
Cons
long hours.

workig with RGIS
Counting shelves/areas separately (Current Employee) –  SCARBOROUGH ONFebruary 23, 2015
working at RGIS gave me experience working with cash registers. its very similar just smaller and doesn't have products saved in them. I enjoy working at RGIS because its 2 experiences in one inventory and retailing the only thing we don't do is communicate with clients unless they need us to redirect them to one of the staff that works In the store. The management there is very organized friendly, caring and understanding. Working with RGIS I haven't dealt with anybody with negative attitude around me, everyone was friendly and outgoing. The job isn't anything really challenging about the job I find It simple and very easy. The most enjoyable part working with RGIS Is travelling to different stores and meeting new people and seeing how retailing employees work.
Pros
learning new things
