When I last did them, I carried a Sharpie.... made a stripe on the weight when I refilled one. Two refills and then they went in the trash. Or sometimes sooner.

What is SPAR paying these days? I have a chance to pick up a few independent drug stores stores in my area but I'd like an idea before I go ahead with this. Do they pay mileage?

I was just looking at my payment detail for paycheck on 3/28. And I got a .25c an hour payraise. After 6 years of not getting one. I never even bothered to ask my DM the past couple of years, with always getting the same thing, no raises this year.

If you don't look at your payment detail, you may want to. last pay was still old rate. new pay rate is on the 3/28/14 paycheck.

I think it depends on where you live. I was offered a postion a couple of years ago and it was low double digit.
They don't pay mileage. They pay what they call an acess fee and it is a set amount.

Last I heard, all Certified was doing was theatre jobs.

I had a couple of DG's added.

I am getting a little aggravated now with this company. I was asked to pick up a store 45 minutes one way from my house for a weekly visit (balloons) until they could hire someone. Well, that was 6 weeks ago and they just assigned me a FD in that area as well. Guess it's about time for a come to Jesus meeting.

I had 19 DG's scheduled for end of April for HDA lost them and what I was looking at earning which I desperately needed. Not sure where to apply or even if I want to, seeing the comments don't sound good that I've been reading about for around last 6 months now. I am IC picking up alittle something here and there. Any suggestions?

Same thing here I had 34 scheduled from HDA and lost them too! So disappointed. I was told at one of the DG's that I serviced and shop at that Driveline had come in.

I tried applying to Driveline but have not heard from them as of yet. That was back middle of April when I got the final email. Guess I should have signed up before then. Is there another company also doing them? I thought I saw something somewhere? Not sure who I should try to sign up with now. Anyone have any suggestions?

Spar has DMM's in each territory. Each DMM has TONS of merch's to handle, so personal contact for each job is just not possible.
If you don't want a certain assignment that mysteriously pops onto your job board, just call or email your DMM and opt out. A lot of time these were placed by their automated system, and your DMM may not even be aware you were assigned.

Or, do as I do:
Look at each remote location as a possible expansion to my regular routes.

Another payday passed and still no check. Used to receive them on Saturdays, then always on Mondays. Now maybe on Tuesday?

Anyone else? Or do I just blame it on the post office again?

Why cannot a company as big as Spar not do direct deposit?

I get mine on Tuesdays, Spar mails them on Fridays.
Once in a while I don't get mine until Thursday, but that's the Post Office for you.
