LoriB,
Did you mention in your narrative the difference between the address shopped and the one on the card? I have had to do so several times and never had an issue. If it was me, I'd write to the MSC and ask to be reinstated unless they can show that the employee was never at the branch you were supposed to shop. In fact, I might start by calling the branch and asking for the employee and then report your findings to the MSC with your request to be reinstated. I have usually found Ath schedulers to be very helpful. When I accidentally shopped the wrong branch of 2 that were less than 2 blocks apart, they went out of their way to get me rescheduled for the correct branch.

I did get told, once, that the teller name that I reported did not exist, but I told them that I had copied it right into my check record while I was looking at the ID badge, and they paid me. The next time I shopped that branch I got the very same teller, and thought that she looked remarkably well, considering that she didn't exist.

Does Ath Power ever grade/rate shops? I have completed 17 shops for them but the shop rating and reviewr comments column are completely blank. My rating has not been changed from the beginner rating of 5. For now I will assume that they like my work as long as they continue to pay me and schedule me for future shops.

I have never gotten a grade and I have completed over 30 plus shops for them. If there was something wrong with your report and it was rejected for some reason a comment would be made, but no visible grade.

I've received mine. I believe it was on 2/3. You may need to have them send you another.

It was at least 5 years or more ago. I told the scheduler it was the same woman, but she chose not to believe me. I can't believe they told you the person did not exist. LOL! She looked well.... I am cracking my side!

Well I was a little peeved with them - I did a business censes with them last year and they are scheduling it again. I figured I'd have a heads up having done it last year and most of the businesses are still there so I'd be able to do it super fast - but while they kept trying to hire for it they did not pick me.

Not sure why - but okay. I can live with that.

Finally a mention of the business census!

Do they do the same areas every year? Is this a once a year deal?

I finally managed to land one of them, and am waiting for the paperwork now. Just curious how often they happen and if the territory changes.

Apparently I have been paid for my Dec shop on Feb 4th, but have not seen a check yet. Does is usually take this long to receive payment?

I've just gotten my first grade ever from ATH with a positive comment from the editor about how she appreciated the amount of detail I included. Don't mean to brag - or sound too desperate for a compliment - but it was nice to get.

I completed two shops for them last week and they were not graded. It showed "received" so I know it's gone through okay. When did they start grading?

My graded shop was on 1/3/09. I've done two since then that were not given a grade.

Keep an eye on your payments. I received mine and went to the bank to cash today. It is dated January 2008 and the bank would not cash. Has anyone else had this problem?? Or gotten a message regarding this.

Yikes, Lisa! It sounds like a super-duper clerical error. I have caught myself entering 2008 on a couple of 2009 shop dates, even now.

Not sure who to contact. thankfully, mine was only for $3.75 (phone shop).

The scheduling company sent my request on directly to Ath. I also went to there home page and sent a direct message. Julie Goff is the contact who emailed me from the email she got from the scheduling company. Hopefully all is resolved. I was hoping for a corporat message alerting all to the error. If you need further contact info let me know.

If you check the shop log, other checks were mailed out on the 20th. I hope they do not have the same problem.
