I did one, injured my knee (not on the job) and had to forget the rest. I was told to spend no more than 45 minutes in store. I am a little perterbed that when I explained my situation, I did not receive any acknowledgement, the jobs just left my page.

I hear that they were to take "about an hour" I guess 45 minutes is close. Hope your knee is feeling better, hopefully not something permanent, especially with winter coming on. We are getting hit with the beginning today. Lots of wind.

Evidently I had signed up with them previously, I did not receive an email from them, but from a fellow merchandiser. I have applied and the stores are still open. Of course, the jobs are not until Dec. I am still hoping.

I just came back from doing the gift card audit. It was very easy. It took 45 minutes including the time I talked with the manager and the cleaning and straightening. The old cards had already been pulled. took my pics, got my report signed and gone.

The next one is in November and two in December...then 2 or more in 2009. I'm sure that those will be scheduled more time, at least in my store because the manager said they were getting a new fixture with another 8 ft.

I have done a job for on October 28th. I have another one to do in November & December. The jobs seem to be easy. Just pull old cards and put up back stock. They are saying not to take time to set POG because the companies aren't allowing time for it. So it doesn't really take that long. They pay $15 a store & they are saying November is going to pay $28 we will see. I can't really tell you about the pay I haven't gotten paid yet.

Good for you Kelly. It sounds like this will be at least a monthly assignment and could turn out to be more. I know that when I did my second assignment, the gal at the store seemed happy to turn her stock over to me and I'm glad for the work.

I received my first check from this company. The assignment I did paid once per month and I did it at the end of October. Paid on the 20th of November.
