So, it has been extended until November 12th. Then I probably did not need to panic yesterday when I received my materials. My kit was missing decals,field forms and codes. I spend most of yesterday reading and re-reading the instruction book. Also sent off e-mails and made phone calls...

Wish I had not been so conscientious about taking the deadline so seriously. I should have taken my time and gone for the bonuses! I just hope that by finishing by the deadline (and, would assume, saving Stratmar some $ by taking the project's deadline seriously, that I might have priority on the next Discover Program (if there actually IS another Discover program??) Would be cool if those of us who busted it to finish on time would get a bonus:-) But that's OK. Just want to be there for the next one if there is one!!

If anyone knows of any new campaign coming up, please post!

Yeah, hopefully you dont get screwed like I did. I worked my butt off on the last Discover round. Had over 1000 stops. Made every deadline and hit most bonuses. Was promised first dibs on my area of whatever locations I wanted. Turns out I didn't get a single location. I guess our area got a new DM and they didn't bother to email me. So I got let with nothing. Not even a sorry. I was really looking forward to work. :(

Don't know what is coming up but I know I worked over a 1000 visits last year and didn't even get the starting e-mail this year. I kept schedule clear for them because i promised 4 days a week, just to find out that they started the program and didn't let me know.

That stinks! Im sorry. You must have got the same new DM I got. I was really looking forward to working the program again. Have you got any emais lately? I haven't even got one. I emailed and let them know I was disapointed and they said they would make sure the new DM had my info. But I doubt she has it, cause I still never got anything from her.

I finally got some info and got some work from them. i should know better than 2 clear my schedule, but i worked really hard for them last year so i thought i would get some consideration. Luckily i live in a rural area otherwise they probably would have assigned it all 2 someone new.

Any updates on this? I was just hired for this project but I don't know much about it, or even what it's paying.

The pay is based on whether the Discover visit is Successful ($7.75), Unsuccessful ($4), or Not workable ($3). Depending on how many visits you have, you can make pretty good money. Just plan your routes well(I use the Google TSP roundtrip solver) and, a GPS is definitely a plus. This job has been good to me.

I hope this gets seen by others working. How many of you haven't been paid for work as of June 2011? I am owed quite a bit of money and love this job and company. Since they merged with apollo I received two tiny (doesn't even cover my gas) checks and now this pay period no check at all. I am so bummed since this is my favorite job to do. But I can't work for free. You can't contact anyone and my DM can take days to reply. Anyone else?
