Retail Grocery Inventory Service (RGIS ) is an inventory systems company that services Global 500 and Fortune 500 companies across the world. Since 1958, RGIS has expanded into one of the world’s largest and most recognized inventory specialist companies. Recently, RGIS was purchased by Blackstone Group as it branches into various countries throughout Europe.
As RGIS expands globally and domestically, they will need to increase their workforce. This is one of the reasons that you may see constant advertising from RGIS in your newspaper or local job boards. They are often looking to add inventory auditors throughout their numerous locations across the country.
If you’ve looked into working for RGIS, you may have noticed that RGIS is one of those companies that, after you type the company name in Google, the word “scam” appears afterwards. This is typical of multi-level marketing operations such as Vector Marketing, but what about an inventory specialist company? Is RGIS a scam, or is it an opportunity for the most gifted individuals?
