Inventory Counter | Tampa, FL | Jun 21, 2013
it's a job...if you need one that bad
Hours and schedules are obtained off of a computer and if you do not have a daily access to a computer, You can be in trouble. schedules are available, management does try to have something out weeks in advance, but there are times where the schedule is posted hours within an event. the times vary and arent consistant. One day you can start at 4 pm, thenext 2 am. You may work within a couple miles of your residence or hours of driving. Chosen employees even are allowed the chance to to work in Puerto Rico or the Bahamas. Employees are allowed the chance to meet at the office where transportation is provided at a cost to the employess and the employee can opt to meet at the business location. If the employee chooses transporation, the employee forfiets an hours worth of discounted pay for the excuse to pay for the gas and up-keep of the company vans, which is filthy on the outside. Employees are required to wear certain color of clothes to help identify their company without any allows or reimbursements of up-keeps or purchases. Most hired are the young who couldn't finish school, have a personality issue or are mentally off balanced. The other half are older people, who cannot find anything because of age or disabilities. No one can work another job because of the varying time and place schedules. The majority of the work, but not soley is preformed while store / business hours are closed. Employees are stressed to work at an accurate and speedy pace. As long as it "looks

Area Manager | United States | Jan 31, 2015
My first hand experience with this company.
I would like to just start out in the beginning and make very clear this my experience as a manager with this company. I was hired as an Inventory Manager and shortly after was promoted to Area Manager. Although I never held the title of inventory associate (counter) I can say I have done this job also. My initial position of Inventory Manager started out actually somewhat enjoyable. The end of the year is the slow season for inventories so my schedule was actually very acceptable. I ran a few inventories and helped with the hiring/training of new employees. This process should have clued me in how my experience was going to be with this company. I can honestly say I rarely got to know my new hires because they were gone with in a month. I have to say this is not just the companies fault. For every good employee I hired there were 9 other employees who were useless. They would all be excited to work and when the time came for their first shift, no show! After a few months I was "promoted" to a position similar to Area Manager. All the responsibilities of that position, but very small change in compensation. My boss had just up and left the company like so many other managers do. This was just in time for the start of our incredibly chaotic first of the year. As the only manager in my office it became my responsibility to do everything. Every office in this company has hourly supervisors that run certain inventories and help with running cr

Manager | New York State | Jun 8, 2013
Beware.
Do not work for this company. It is awful on every level of existence. Compensation / Benefits is not competitive for the field. Their culture and values are to make as much money as possible with a complete disregard to employee safety. Yes, I was forced to drive 6 hours to a get to a job, work for 8 hours, then drive home for 6 hours. Since i was on salary, no break considerations were made. Then I would be questioned why I didn't answer my phone immediately 3 hours after arriving home. The District Manager needed people at the store, so there were no considerations made. As far as job security and advancement, this is the one category that could possibly be rated better than one star, but ultimately isn't. If you do a good job as an Inventory Manager, you may get promoted. Ultimately, though, that is where the line ends. There are so few District and Regional managers that there is not a lot of opportunity there. The "corporate bs" really begins at the DM level, so if there are problems they don't take as much responsibility as the Area and Inventory Managers. Moving on to management, all of the upper management are very poor managers for the most part. They have very little fiscal sensibility, which leads them to only look at a small portion of an overall financial statement. They also only look at problems after the fact, complaining when a P&L statement is unsatisfactory. However, they never take the proactive steps beforehand to improve the P&L and help to work out pro

Review from someone that worked there for 7 years and everything you need to know (long review)
First off, if you have a family or responsibilities at home, this job is not for you. Regardless of what they tell you, the hours are very inconsistent and some days you'll be asked to show up at 5am and be asked to show up at midnight the following day. Every day has different hours and if you are expected to travel out of town, know that the first hour leaving town and the last hour returning home YOU WILL NOT BE PAID FOR. They count it as "Commuting to work" so if you travel 6 hours for that day, you will only be paid 4 hours of travel. Some days you will be working for 3-4 hours, other days you might be working for 12-16 hours depending on the store you are scheduled to work that day and how many people show up. Favoritism: Some people will be reprimanded for breaking the rules or for not showing up. Others will not face consequences. Expect many of your days to be short staffed due to lack of attendance, and if upper management likes the ones that are absent, then they won't be punished. Scheduling is based off of if the managers like you and not if you are able to be productive, as well as training. Most managers won't take the time of the day to train you to improve if they don't like you and you will be scheduled because of it. On the other hand, if a manager likes a person, even if they are not as productive, they will be scheduled more and sometimes even get double shifts. Pay: Managers are responsible for your payroll. Managers are the ones who clock you in out
ProsA good way to kill time, make a little pocket change, and travel around while getting paid
ConsBad work culture, lack of training, favoritism, lots of drug addicts, inconsistent pay, inconsistent hours

Counting down products and items while putting info into the wizard so that the stores will know what items to order and what items not to order.
The job is good for a person who wants a part-time job and not worried about the hours. You are not guarantee a whole 30 to 40 hrs, you could be schedule maybe two days out of one week and two weeks could go by before you are scheduled again, so if you are looking for a part-time work with more hours this is not the job for you. Not only that but you have to check your schedule online, you do not know when you are schedule for a job until you look it up so that means you have to check every day and see if your name appears on the schedule list and if you have an appointment on that day then you have to email the manager because there is no-way to contact any manager by phone, only by email and sometimes you do not know which manager you should contact if an emergency should arise which I was finding it very difficult. You have to be fast in counting each items on the rack and shelves inculding little items. You also have to work with people of different age and race, in my opinion jobs like this should closely monitor new employees before making them permanent. When you have some employees cursing while customers are shopping and managers are more worried about being on top of other Inventory Companies, that will make the company very unprofessional. The most hardest part of the job is when you first begin a Inventory position, you have a quota that you have to make, if you do not make that quota it is count against you which I do not believe it to be unfair to any new employ

Where do I start?!
This "job" was the worst I have ever had. After being laid off from a decent job and not working for 2 years, WIS came along and gave me a "job". It had its okay days but normally they were bad days. The veterans will warm up to you once they realize you are not going anywhere but until that point be ok with sitting by yourself on breaks and not talking to anyone on van rides. You wont be included. Speak up. Learn to be quick at this job otherwise you will be made fun of. Honestly, you can do great at this job and they will still fire you for anything. I lasted 10 months, still not sure how I made it that far. I never got a raise because they kept looking me over. Co-workers can and WILL include druggies, criminals and people you would never associate with on your personal time. Upper management from corporate comes in rarely but when they do, you know its them driving up in the BMW or Mercedes. And they are rude! Supervisors can be someone who has worked there a year or someone literally off the street. BAD BAD management. They care little if your sick, have children,etc. This is a rush-rush job- rush to get to the job, rush to get the job done, rush on your break to find something to eat(you are usually in a publix, if they let you buy food from there), bad looks are given when you go to the bathroom during count time and rush to get home. The "friends" you think you make at this job will stab you in the back to make themselves look better. I once worked a whole week with b

Stressful Beyond Belief
If you want to be extremely overworked,extremely underpaid and talked to like you're a 5 year old, then WIS International is the place for you. I started working for this company in November of 2015, from the very beginning during my interview, I should have known I was making a huge mistake. When I arrived at the Marietta, GA location for my interview, I sat and waited for 35-40 minutes, my interview was scheduled for 11:00 am. During my interview I was told that I would receive a company issued shirt(polo style) and a name badge, neither of which I received and I stopped working for the company 4 days ago. The scheduling is absolutely horrendous, you are scheduled for an assignment scheduled for 5 am and depending on how many people actually show up if they are scheduled, you may be lucky enough to finish the job by 12 noon. They will schedule a job for 5 am and you won't get out of there until 4 pm that afternoon, maybe later than that. Then you are either scheduled for another job that evening with a start time ranging anywhere from a meet time of between 5-8 pm and the job starting at 9pm. You may also be scheduled for another job right after that assignment for the next morning. Once the schedule is sent out for the week, there is a notice on your schedule that if you have a conflict with a job that you are scheduled for, to please notify them immediately so that they can arrange for a replacement. If you do that, you will get written up, no matter what. They do not car

Lack of communication, blatant disregard for human life
Managers Lack ANY empathy for real life issues. like:: a high risk pregnant wife being emergency transported to a hospital and the managers (Jacksonville FL area managers and region manager of Florida) having to figure out if the husband of said pregnant wife could go be with her after FINISHING a store that the husband was only support in. You will be LIED TO continuously about pay, like if the managers screw up and input pay wrong or tell you you'll be paid for different hours you'll get even LESS on your check. You'll get the run-around from both the area managers only to be literally screamed at for someone else's short comings and mistakes, and have BOTH area managers blame the other AND the regional manager then turn around and tell you other co-workers short comings are on you as well... They'll make you go days without proper sleep from over working you store after store for days on end and then complain that you didn't count accurately and write you up for basically being human. I even have write ups from stores that cancelled due to unsanitary conditions of the store or low staff that were promised to be removed. Co-workers, actually store SUPERVISORS (Wis supervisors not the actual stores), can harass and literally physically threaten you and when you bring it to your area managers attention nothing will happen except them asking "well what do you want MEE to do about it" But they'll literally yell and scream and fire you for the day for actually listening to what

If you have other options, STAY AWAY.....
If you have a family or any type of hobbies or social life then this place is not for you. As a Inventory Manager expect 10 plus hour shifts with ease. Expect to come in at 3am and not end your day until 7pm, then have to be back in at 3am again the next morning. If the job is out of town expect to be forced to drive the crew while you are still exhausted, while everyone else including the Area Manager sleeps (nice to hear those snores for 2 hours). No formal training when you start, you are thrown in left to figure things out and help with no clue. As a manager that's not a great perception to the inventory staff, but you try. They rather have you in stores standing around versus taking the time to learn the business in a nice training platform. Your training class is at home on your own personal time...No Pay...you're on salary they got you now... Not a great compensation amount for what they expect from you. Now if you are a loner and don't sleep much, then this is perfect for you... I'm in a long list of Inventory Managers that have come and gone. Once I heard from the staff that have been around for years, about how they've seen so many IMs leave and they are surprised that you are still there...RED FLAG...it's almost a running joke. Prepare for some office politics, working with a few ex-cons, some staff with poor personal hygiene, a junky office, junky work vans and of course the many equipment breakdowns that will mess up your day...

Don't do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This company is one of the worst they will schedule you to at different times of the day, one day you will be working late nights when stores close around 9 or 10pm and you will get our around 2 or 3am and then have you do jobs as early as 4 am and working usually till 10am while they open and customers are around asking you questions thinking your an idiot not knowing where anything is and all you can say is " sorry I don't work here". Normally you will get few hours or too many hours(at a cost). If they are understaffed prepare to do back to back shifts, but hey you get overtime right? depending on the time you can get overtime pay if you start your day in the morning yes but lets say you start your day at 4pm you work 5hours get unpaid lunch at 9pm and get back to work at 9:30 and work another 5 hours(which will happen) and you and your team finishes the store you are doing at 2:30 am and worked worked a total of 10 hours and earned a total of 8 hours pay and 2 hours overtime right? well according to them its all regular pay because their policy is that once midnight hits it is a new day so they start you as hour one is this legal well that's why they always have lawsuits on their hands. There are also days that you will get a night shifts and want you to work on a morning shift as well with little to no rest. There are also time when it gets busy where you will get alot of work but once you hit November/December you better start looking for a new job because you basica

Boring, repetitive, and very unreliable
I didn't particularly find this job "hard", but I found that the management gave hardly any direction on how to properly count. Sometimes you'd be counting clothing stores (count every item) or department/grocery and count in multi-quantities. I was only trained on clothing stores, so I literally had to teach myself how to count grocery because I got a 5 minute run down at the beginning of my shift, and was left to myself for the rest of it. The hours are incredibly unreliable, I counted a lingerie store for 11 hours one weekend, and then counted the same store (different location) in 6 hours. You NEVER know how long your shift will last, and if you take the company vehicle, you could be stuck there after the count is finished, until the manager is done all his/her computer/paperwork. There have been situations where I am scheduled during times I am unavailable, or scheduled far away when I have requested to not be scheduled past a certain time (i.e. requested to leave at 1pm to get to an appointment/class at 2pm, and they schedule you an hour away from home so not only do you have to leave the shift even earlier to make it back home in time, but you have to drive yourself and not in the company vehicle, because if the count lasts longer than your availability says, you have to miss the appointment/class....so drive an hour both ways to work 5 hours? I feel that is just not worth it.) I have gone weeks without being scheduled, sometimes even longer than that. If you don't min

Friends don't let friends work at WIS International
I was looking for a part-time job to supplement my 9-to-5 to earn some extra money to pursue some of my outdoor passions. The ad which regaled the masses of tales of flexible working hours while working other jobs seemed very promising - just what I was looking for. Fooled me once, but not again! First let me say that the "interview" is in all actuality a free, unpaid training session of about 6 people. They tell you about the company and the job, train you on how to use the scanning guns, teach you inventory and scanning techniques, and at the end of the session ask if you want the job or not. Can't really get paid for training if you're not an employee yet, right? Training before the hire - that's where they get you. And when you actually get to work your first shifts, everybody is too busy trying to keep their numbers up that they don't take the time to help out the new people on the floor. Working for minimum wage, the shifts are not even worth showing up for. The first couple of shifts vary between 2 to 3 hours. So when you take into account transportation costs (gas, tolls, parking, etc.), it's actually costing you money to work for this company. Totally not worth your time! Now back to the flexible hours part. I was told to indicate my hours on the application form - fair enough.

Completely replace all the software infrastructure with something that makes some vague semblance of sense to human beings.

I would provide better pay for the employees. especially the ones who put in the long hours and also go help other managers count the stores that they are at. I would increase the travel time pay to 9.25 a hour instead of 7.25. this is a good company to work for but it needs to also treat its employees fairly. and also get new shirts for the employees instead of them having to wash one shirt everyday that they get home from work. and they should also let the employees wear blue jeans on fridays.
