INVENTORY ASSOCIATE (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – February 8, 2016
We work at our own pace, we learn to count inventory with our eyes instead of hands, the management is fairly nice and easy going. there is a very high turnover rate that you usually do not get a chance to get to know new employees and there are only a handful of old employees. the hardest part of the job is the travel because we work at different stores around the GTA. the most enjoyable part of the job is the short amount of work and the faster everyone does the job, the faster we get to go home.

I believe WIS is a great place to work. It is part time/season. Contract work( varies ) But overall i would recommend WIS for employment. Management is very understanding and willing to help. Plenty of room for advancement.
Inventory Clerk (Current Employee) – Barrie, ON – March 4, 2015
The most enjoyable part of this job is you get to travel to differnet cities to count certain stores. My co-workers are fun to get along with. The hardest part of the job is getting up so early for work.
Inventory Clerk (Current Employee) – Kelowna, BC – February 16, 2015
While I highly enjoy the people at my work, the lack of stability across the board makes it hard to give it any kind of glowing review. I have learned to adjust to working odd hours as well as just learning the basic curve-balls of work environments.
my co-workers, we get time off around the christmas season
not a stable source of income (one month we will work every day, the next we will have perhaps four jobs), not paid enough/properly
• Tiring work but its good and worth working • I learned accuracy is really need in working here • Awesome managers • Fun co workers they all good • The hardest part is counting 500pcs mini items • Most enjoyable is when our manager having a speech when the counting starts

Supervisor (Current Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – September 24, 2014
Team work is the most important for this job. for example, sometimes we do inventory counts for Walmart. Each small team focuses on one section. The most enjoyable part of the job is that we can let our customers satisfied when they see our accurate reports after counting.
It's a good temporary job, keep it while looking for other work

typical day, 50% of the time on your knees, if you're going to work here buy a set of knee pads (you'll thank me for this one). Your entire day is incredibly mundane, mashing buttons on a big black hand held machine that I guarantee will hurt your wrist in the first couple hours.
At WIS, you could be a hard worker and be loyal & dedicated and that still will not be enough. Those that pull no-shows, or "blowing a shift" as they call it, will get lots of hours while you get stuck with little to no hours at all.
Sure, they may be fast at times, but what good is that if they are unreliable.
Then there's the incredibly long shifts and not having adequate time off between shifts. Of course, if you mess up at the next count after not having enough sleep, you get yelled at and possibly written up or "kicked off the floor".
Road trips really suck because you end up spending money you normally wouldn't on overpriced takeout. You will ONLY get a meal allowance if you spend more than one day at a hotel.
Don't waste your time working here, unless you are just doing it to supplement your income.
not getting nearly enough hours, management playing favorites
