I just wanted to say that my pay discrepancy from a page or so back was resolved. My DM took care of it!

My wife and I finally heard from someone todat. I guess the lady that hired us no longer works there. Now our area is filled. Oh well. We still have two boxes of Discover signage. I will see if they want us to return it.

Has anyone heard when the restaurant addresses will be released? I don't think the project starts until the 8th, so they may not have it out yet.

I'm still waiting to hear too. I have emailed my DM several times but she never replies when I ask her about that. Has anyone received their checks this week?

Not yet, I think they were cut on the 1st and to be delivered on Thursday (today) or Friday.

Thats good. I didn't get mine. And last week my check didn't arrive until the following monday. I hope it doesn't happen again this week. Cause I think Monday is a holiday. I wish they would give us tracking numbers for them.

No...what is even better is that I received ONLY a bonus check of $150 so far...but of course I don't know if it is 2 weeks of $75 or the 3 week bonus of $150 AND I don't know which weeks either. So for the last couple checks they have supposedly lumped the bonus in with the pay -- NO WAY of really telling as there is no itemized list with the checks -- and now they send them separate? AND on a pay week? They sent this overnight and I am supposed to still get my paycheck overnight -- what a waste! I absolutely hate companies that cannot break out a check for you for accounting/tracking purposes...arrrgghhh....

This probably won't work for those of you covering huge amounts of stores, but for me I write down whether the visit was successful, unsuccessful, unworkable (S, US, UN), the amount of pay, and the date at the bottom corner of my sheets when I get to my car. Then I can track my pay. It isn't the most convenient solution, but then you could know what you are owned in a given pay period, and the remainder would be bonus money, so you could figure if they have kept up with your bonus money. It really would be nice if it was set out for us. On the synergy site, all of the closed visits are still there with their dates. If would be a huge pain, but you could go back and figure it that way too, providing you have kept all your visit sheets. This was the only way I could prove my pay discrepancy a while back.

I do understand what you mean. I only had about 200 stores total, so mine were pretty accurate. Any word for you on the restaurant visit? I haven't heard from my DM. I thought it was to start on the 8th.

On August 22, YClayborne wrote that their DM had told them there would be 40,000 restaurants added after this. I had heard the same thing. It is my understanding the restaurant list is supposed to come out in the next week or so, but they might be trying to tie up the rest of these visits. I don't know that there has been any news on what the exact instructions are for it. It is still part of the Discover project, so probably something close to what we are doing now, but I don't really know. I will be happy to have more work!

I got this email on september 4th. If anyone needs the xls list let me know.
Please find attached a list of 25,000 stores........If these stores have not been visited by Monday night......they will be disappearing out of Synergy. Discover has asked us to STOP service on these store. If they have been visited, so be it but they need to be reported by Monday night.....if not they are coming out on Tuesday morning.

Please break the list down into states for your reps and advise them NOT to do them.......

There will be an additional 15K being added next week as well as the restaurants....... <<Stop Service 25K.xls>>

I got my first check on Friday, and it was MORE than I expected. I'm wondering if I did get a bonus even though I didn't hit the 60% success rate -- I did a lot of locations in my first week, so maybe I got some bonus money.

I'm not complaining though!

I had quite a few restaurants pulled including many that I had already done and reported so not sure if some will get revisited.

Earlier in this thread someone posted about 40,000 restaurants being added to the Discover project. I haven't gotten anything in my area on those yet. I am wondering if they are pulling the current visits so they can do a different approach for the restaurants. Have you had any additional added since they said there were more coming?
