Inventory Clerk/Supervisor (Former Employee) – Kamloops, BC – 20 October 2013
If you know how to count.. its pretty simple job. Its the travel and constant stareing at objects that can get to you. a typical day at work can be anywhere from two and a half hours long to 17 hours long.. that is including travel time. All sorts of different inventory locations from hardware stores to convenient store locations. I have learned that counting can be alot of fun with the right people around you.. I did it for quite a long period of time and stayed with it because you were at a different location and different kind of count everyday. You get to travel from kamloops up to three hours away and sometime longer outside the area, meet lots of cool people and have alot of fun on road trips. The hardest part of the job would be the wear and tare the travelling can take on your body over time. Also stareing at objects over and over again counting can do a number on your eyes. Most enjoyable part is finishing the large jobs in record times. That was always fun!

Working at WIS International was an amazing first career for me and taught me so much about the job environment and what to expect from future careers. The people and managers made my first experience very nice and made me feel comfortable with my self.
Commis à l'inventaire (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 8 June 2017
Trop impliqué et plongé dans un travail en tant qu'employer nous aident à comprendre que l'amour du métier compte beaucoup , peu importe la difficulté que l'on affronte Se réveiller a 05:30 et commencer à temps avec l'assurance que l'on sert à quelque chose. Continuer et participer aux activité quotidien avec les collègues en pensent qu'autant des chances d'avoir un travaillé nous aide à effectuer nos tâches avec ardeur. Moins des temps à offrir à la famille, hélas. Mais les peu des temps sont utilisé comme il en faut pour l'harmonisation et la stabilité de chacun.
Trés patiens et toujours pret pour toutes amelioration du service aux employés
moins d'employer et ça provoque beaucoup des gimnastique aux employer

management is absolutely horrid, shifts can range from 4 hours to 12 which is really annoying if you dont know ahead of time. co workers are alright. the workload itself is easy however it can be tedious at times.

The work can be long, and some days can be short depending on where you're working for that day. The times are varied, and the hours aren't guaranteed. Good place to work if you're in a bind, or a tight situation for a job.

I enjoyed working with people. I got to work with different teams every shift but the hours were weird. It wasnt the typical 8 hour shift. Sometimes it's short, sometimes it's really long. it depends on what store we're doing that day.

Excellent job for team players who enjoy competing to improve both yourself and your team. Different work environments each day that helps keep the job exciting. Great for early morning risers who like to be home in the afternoon. Traveling in company vans is a great way to bond with my teammates- some of the best memories ever!
flexible hours, home by mid afternoon, well organized, great technology

Ride in a van to a store count everything at store with a team that will get it done within 10 hours or less.
I like it because you're not always working with the same people or in the same area. There are travel opportunities that take you all over Ontario which is paid and hotels are decent. They are international so there are a lot of places you could move to many places and keep your rate of pay similar.
Hardest part is counting stuff on bottoms shelves, just hard on the knees.
Working at WIS can be stressful, but my shifts are flexible and compatible with my school schedule so I'm okay with that.
Inventory Clerk (Current Employee) – Windsor, ON – 9 April 2017
A typical work day at WIS requires long hours of counting inventory and reporting to the accompanying manager, working there has taught me the importance of making less mistakes and being more efficient in reporting. The hardest part of the job would be standing for long hours performing counts, and the most enjoyable part is the compatibility with my school schedule.

There is no typical day at work with WIS. One day you are counting car parts, the next groceries, the next clothing. Whatever the clients sell, we count! The work is generally easy. Patience is a plus. Training is done on the job. It is a physical job, so be willing to bend and/or climb stools. Reaching and light lifting is required. It's a great way to stay limber! The hardest part of the job is that the hours are unusual. There is no scheduled end to the shift--it is over when the counting is done. Often working around retail hours, there can be early mornings and late nights. On the bright side, you are usually done work early in the day. Management is flexible with scheduling. There is seldom any down time so your shift goes by very quickly most of the time. There is some travel (and opportunity for more if you are interested in joining the teams that are on the road). A company vehicle is used for out of town counts so you don't need your own transportation unless it is local. The team you work with changes so you get to work with different people from day to day. If you are motivated and eager to work, hours are available most of the year. There are a couple slow periods in the year, depending on the office you work from. Reviews are done regularly and guidelines are clear regarding raises. Uniform is comfortable and inexpensive.
