I'm receiving job offers from them. I'm applying. My dashboard says those assignments have been APPLIED for. But I'm not hearing back from the schedulers. The FAQ says this can happen if one's settings are filtered incorrectly. But I can't figure it out beyond that. Can anyone who's been through this help me?

Alot of the time the jobs they have never pan out. They are a third party merchandising company. I have applied for plenty of jobs and have only actually done 3. I spoke with another rep on a Frito Lay reset a month or so ago. He had the same issues. He said he has gotten the work and then shown up and the job be cancelled. But they paid a 4 hour mininum. You should hear something if the job actually happens. Good Luck

There is a job posted on this site in my area at Sam's Club. It is offering $40 for the job. I had the same job offer from another company making $60. Strange huh?

I've worked with them a number of times with no problems. The company rep showing up (ie FritoLay) is not their problem. It's FritoLay's problem. A lot of time on the smaller stores, the sales rep never bothers to show up because it is a small store.

That is because IMO, SASR is more of a temp employment agency rather than a merch company.
They send me offers from companies that I am not listed with. The benefit is work that I had no clue was available and the actual merch company gets a worker not in their data base.

I like the thought that they are a temp company. I never knew that there was a company like that for merchandisers. I'm going to apply,they have a listing on Narms in my area. Hopefully there might be some work around here.

Kelly... I've been working for SASR for 4 yrs now. It used to be great before they changed their strategy. There used to be a constant flood of emails for jobs. Now it's dried up to practically non-existent. There are rarely any jobs available and when they are the hourly wage stinks and there is rarely any travel compensation. They used to hire a lot for Lowe's and Petsmart. Lowes stopped using 3rd party merchandisers and I haven't seen a Petsmart remodel or project in 2 yrs. Seriously, they're not worth signing up for.

Don't let them make you work for free. YOUR time is worth $$$. Demand compensation for it.

I have been signed up with them for over a year and have yet to get an assignment with them or even see one for this area. Most of the jobs have been way up north or east of the mountains and seem to stay on the board for quite some time. I did get an email a few days ago saying they are revamping their website.

They have some work in my area, but it requires lifting 50 pounds several times per shift. My wrist cannot do that.
There have been overnight store department resets including display removal and reinstall of a lamp dept overhead items displayed including assembley of the replaced items. Too much overhead work for me for the same reason.
There is a lumber delivery route that comes up often.

I remain listed in case they come up with normal stock resets or merchandising which I have seen offered in neightboring states too far for me to chase.

You should log in at least once every 30 days or you will get an email saying you may be dropped.

I get jobs for the big box home improvement stores, which state that you have to be able to move "warehouse shelving". and lift 50 lbs.or more, and they are always overnites. I have only did 1 of these and I got to do the items that hung, so only had to move peg hooks around, otherwise I wouldn't have signed up for the job. At my age I can't lift 50 lbs. anymore, Used to be able to.

All that seems to pop up for them around here is the 'lumber route' -- must be either high turnover or a hard slot to fill.

I just got called about the Lumber route servicing today. Thing is.. the company that it's for wants you to travel all over but not give you any compensation for travel/mileage. I told them I'd be willing to travel up to 30 miles and anything over that needs to be compensated w/either a per mile rate or a flat rate to cover my gas expenses. I suspect I won't hear back from them. I told them... I don't work for "free". Some of the stores they want me to do cost me about $20 in gas RT and for a 4-5 hr job at $12.35/hr minus taxes, you do the math : $61.75 wages - 13%taxes ($8) = $53 - $20 (gas) = $33/5 hrs = $6.60/hr

Thanks but no thanks.

I agree the lumber route keeps coming back around. This week, they came up with some 9 hour wonder - 1 day jobs in our metro area and Lincoln some 60 miles away.
The wonder is how anybody can lift those loads for 9 hours per day.

Any thing new on this company? I just got a job offer(well on their site to apply for it) 11.00 per hr. and a whole $5.00 for gas!! It's doing a reset in a town over 30 miles one way from here and come to find out it's resetting paint. Sounds like alot of heavy work,gallons of paint.
Yep,just looked at the fine print-even tho they say you have to apply, be chosen by them and THEN they'll tell you where. But the find print reads and it says Lowe's vendor vest needed and it's moving beams to a higher level and resetting gallons of paint. I'll pass,especially since it'll cost over $20.00 just in gas to get there and back.

SASR is a very good outfit to work with. They are a temp agency for merchandising groups who need extra help. SASR pays W-2, and always on time. Wages are very good, and the staff is very pleasant to communicate with. You never know what job may pop up next. I had done furniture assembly in Sears and K Mart, electrical wallplates in Lowe's, and set a new Yankee Candle store. The only thing you need to watch for is if you have to work with an "idiot company rep". Sometimes that happens. I was fortunate. Everybody I worked with wanted to hire me. SASR can assist with aspect, also.

Sounds to me like a creative name for a demo rep. No slams against demos, just not my "cup of tea".
