I have 2 other reps in my town, but I'm not complaining because I have another company that is going to fill my schedule to 75%. I'm almost hoping that Spar doesn't add much more to me. I have 2 other companies, but I can choose what I want with them.

I agree with the fact that they could let us know when a company leaves. I have worked for other companies that do the same thing though. I also work for several companies, so that I am not left hanging.

Big Sue, I'm glad to know it's not me about the PepBoys. The last time this happened is when I found out that my DM had replaced me.

I would recommend Channel Partners, they are getting alot more work and will be my main source of income started Nov 1 for at least 2 months. I used to get about $100/month from them, but they have picked up work that other companies have lost, so I've have over $230/month besides the seasonal increases. Between Nov 1 and Jan 1, I'll be getting about 1,200/month or more. The $1200 is just what has been confirmed so far, with other work possibly coming in soon.

Hi Marla, How do you get the work from Channel Partners/BDS I know I've done work for them before, but I can't remember if they contact me or if I find work on their website. I got to the home page but didn't see anywhere to log in other that to report work.

Thanks,
Terri

My RM assigns it to me. Do you want his email? How long ago did you work for them? The RM was new a year ago.

Yep,just checked again,nothing work wise. I think it's going to be like this until Spar gets some new accounts-at least in this area. The movie cube has been removed and the Rand maps are gone to another company.

What I like about Spar are games as this one emailed to me.

All I have had in the last 2 months were Phillip's endcap, Icon eyeglasses and Sony vists that have went from weekly to bi-weekly.

They sure do. I'm glad I don't have many of those jobs. Plus that is another reason to schedule work with mutliple companies. Of course, at this time, we should be grateful to have work. I know of one rep that had to travel about 40 miles roundtrip for a 15 minute job. Glad it wasn't me.

What job is that...I have never seen a job less than 30 minutes from Spar..Icon comes up all the time..We only get assigned work when there has been a delivery. P&G are only every 3-4 weeks. I have at least 15 hours a week from them.

Gayle, you're one of the lucky ones. I have 2 hours every other week and nothing in between.

Almay; They did not have new product when I went first time. I left sign with manager and he probably threw it out.

I was getting Rite Aids P & G audits every month along with other things in the store. I had the ICON job too. They change things around for their friends in assigning jobs many times I find.

Gayle what work are you doing this week?
