Does anyone have any info on this company (www.merchandisingsol.com)? I am supposed to do a gift card reset in a grocery store chain, starting tomorrow. I received the planogram via email, but have not gotten the W9, new hire form, time sheets, reorder form, or letter of authorization. I've called all numbers given on the email, and emailed both people, several times today, and nothing. The pay isn't bad, but I don' want to commit several hours to a job if they are so unresponsive. And of course, I can't even begin the job without the previous mentioned paperwork.

I had the same problem with the paperwork, and it was hard to download. BUT... I started these jobs and within 10 DAYS I received my first payment!! I am impressed!!! I would do work for them FULL TIME! The lady who sent my paperwork later sent an email saying she was having trouble with her email and that might have beed the problem. The work is nice and you can do it at your own pace. I really like it.

I did manage to get the paperwork finally. But I found the pay to be only so-so. I spent 5 hours one day with drive time, but could only bill for 2.5. It worked out to less than minimum wage in Florida. I emailed the scheduler that for one day I was assigned, I could not do them unless I was paid for door-to-door time and all mileage. She said there was nothing they could do about the mileage, but to add my drive time to the store hours, which I did. They processed the payroll yesterday, so I should get paid in a week or so.

I would only work for them again if I got paid for my total time, or I was doing stores really close to home. Traffic here can be awful, and we still have issues with traffic lights not working, not being timed properly, or just plain missing due to Hurricane Wilma. And all mileage would be nice, not just over 50 miles.

Lake Worth is just south of West Palm Beach.

They have actually already done their payroll, so hopefully, I'll get a check soon.

That's not too far from me, and try to get them closer next time, they really were a breeze.She sent me to places like Liberty city, little havana, etc. but, I honestly would do them again. I had my fist day on a wed. and got the check the following fri. which was after a holiday. That area is pretty populated, ask for some closer, one thing I have learned is to stop driving so much, the other day I put 150 miles on my car!

Anything? I signed up and was immediately allowed access to the available jobs, applied for several, but have not heard from anyone. How and when do they notify you that you got the jobs?

Russ, have you heard anything more from them. I was referred to them, and had forgot that I had applied previously. I applied to SO many, can't remember them all. I need to know what phone number they have for me. I have not filled out any new hire paperwork, that I remember. How long did it take for you to get the hiring paperwork, from the time that you applied for a job? Are they ones that require the "notarized" I9. IC or employee?

I still have not heard anything. But I don't see the jobs I applied for on my dashboard anymore, so they must have been assigned to someone else.

Did not have to do any notary at all or fill out 28 pages of an application. It was quick and easy. Heading out to work but will check when I get back and let you know.

Thanks Russ. Cari, what I heard was $15/store/about an hr. You have to sign up, I did a while ago, even forgot that I did. I applied for stores in my area, still waiting for email or something.

Yes. I just started with them. It's more audits than it is resets. You check a short list of things, take pictures, get your paperwork signed, unload pictures, upload more pictures. The paper work at the beginning did take some effort. So far so good.

Thanks for the info. I applied for several stores but have not heard anything. The job board says November/December assignments, so I hope they respond soon.
