Does anyone know if they paid mileage when they were RMX?

I have got the mileage back to middle of September 2010; that is all the Jet system would let me. but I should receive the mileage for the couple of years before that.

Also are less opportunities showing up on Jet for you; it is way down for me. I'm trying to find out is it just me or everyone else too.

I am moving to Colorado in five days, and saw they had an opening in the town I was moving to. I applied, did I just make a mistake?

It was for the part time project merchandiser position. I am going to still be working full time, figured this could just help with money, since I have 4 day workweeks and go nuts sitting around LOL.

BrianHanson37...No, I don't think you made a mistake, I a RPM & love working for ASM. It's just some weren't told of being paid for DT & mileage.


ActorMichael...My work is up a bit because of Halloween but otherwise it is less work. I don't know about your area but I know I'm competing with more people for work, now. Over hiring seems to be an issue.

With lay offs and hours being cut, I think that a lot of us are jumping on the dashboard and grabbing work that we ordinarily would take a pass on. Also, there is some "over-hiring" going on. I've seen postings for the area that I cover now, and various other people signed into the vendor log. Thank goodness for Mars and holiday candy, things should stay steady thru March.

I talked to someone in management and I was told that the jobs should reappear; I was told when they when they upload new jobs into system they have to take some down temporarily because of system overload.

Was also told that hey have a lot more work but they have hired a lot more reps.

I have been servicing a gourmet coffee company in a large grocery chain here in the midsouth. Recently all those jobs disappeared off my calendar. I noticed that in several of the stores, they had removed the fixture and replaced it with another company including a grinder. My supervisor would not answer my inquiries. Has anyone else seen this in their area?

Does anyone work on the superfridge team? If so do you spend 30 minutes in each store,or longer? How many stores do you have? Was wondering if it's a dedicated team only or if you have other work as well?

Thanks Maralyn,so it must not be a dedicated team. Was wondering how it could be a dedicated team if the store visits are about 30 minutes each,at least that's what the rep said who was in our store 2 weeks ago.

I work for advantage in so cal and not liking management at all!!! I feel like I am being micro managaged and my manager is trying to get promoted and she has lied to cover her butt lots of times and I am about to let her have it. I do enjoy the job and would like to keep it but I dont know how much longer I can keep my mouth shut. Good companies dont have a huge turn over rate.

Is anyone else locked out of their calendar? I get to the calendar, but none of my call reports will open, I can't accept any work, and can't print tomorrow,s call reports. Also, the old help desk number is not working, can someone supply me with the new one. I have 800-786-7769. GRRRR I hate putting in work late.

I think it was an issue of 10,000 of us all logging on at the same time to print out the recall call reports. Like it when problems resolve themselves but exiting the browser.
