You go from working massive hours to no hours
January no stop work lots of overtime to July 2 shifts a month. They talk culture but doesn't exist managers have no management skills and prefer to bully and threaten staff. If you need money and it's January you can make money but unless retired or on a pension of some sort you can not make a living after a couple months

- Extremely easy
- Perfect for students
- You can meet some nice and friendly coworkers....and these are the only good things about this job and company
- Perfect example of modern day sl***ry
- Certain supervisors are very offensive and disrepectful
- Most supervisors are highly incompetent and I wouldn't hire them to clean toilets
- If you own drivers license and you are able to count fast....boom...few months and you are supervisor,...yep that's their criteria
- I personally witnessed area manager, guy with italian ne, calling a group of counters d**b I***TS behind their backs...very professional mister.
- Salary?.....well I'm actually surprised that people that work for wis ''full time'' are able to make a living
- They excpect you to count fast and keep certain minimum but it's quite difficult when you have to work with devices that are faulty and old
I could write a whole book about WIS. If you are reading this just trust me and avoid this hole. This company shouldn't exist but unfortunately they will continue this mess because they are fully aware that none of them poor people will have resources to take legal action against them.
Can work in the beginning for earning unless you find a good job. Not that bad! They give salary fortnightly and you have to travell a lot as you will be working at different locations but they will accomodate it.
I don't know where to start.
"Training" seems fine for the first few days but after that all falls apart. You are constantly micromanaged without any real training, except for what you learn from your coworkers who've been there for a while. You go for breaks when they tell you to, and hopefully there's a bathroom you can use. But a bathroom break costs time, which affects how fast you're going, which messes with your count quota... thing. If you don't get the numbers they want fast enough, you're screwed.
You get to go home when they tell you to. You could be counting a London Drugs inventory at 6am, but that doesn't mean you can leave 8 hours later. The team leaves when we're done counting everything.
The unreliable and sporadic hours make it very difficult to budget anything. I worked full time there. I got 6 hours TOTAL one week, then got 12 hours every day for 4 days the following week. Those weeks also weren't on the same pay cycle (i'm lucky my landlord was understanding at let me pay rent late).
So say goodbye to your feet, knees and back, as they'll all get destroyed doing this job. And say goodbye to your social life, as you'll be too exhausted to even move once you get home.
This is a fairly straightforward job. Scan and count. A lot of travel though....90% of the jobs are out of town. Not bad since you get paid for travel time as well, but if you have kids this is a tough job.
WIS International is a U.S. based company that provides the service of inventory counting for different stores. It has a nice workplace culture and a fun environment. the hardest part of this job is that we need to stand for really long hours. I learned here to work as a team collaboratively.
There's tons of micromanagement within the company. They have no idea how employment laws work in Canada as well the benefits aren't worth your time being in this company. It's only good if you're retired but honestly theres no positives for working for a company that has zero clue on how Canada employment laws work
I love working for wis it's a good job days can be stressful and long but it's an amazing environment to work in hours vary though in the months almost everyone I have met at this company has helped me understand the work better and other jobs that work with inventory
