Mine usually come on Tuesdays, but I got mine on Monday this time. The one around Memorial Day didn't come until Friday. I realize it was a holiday time which messes up mail, but that seemed quite excessive. I heartily agree, however, that it is absurd not to have direct deposit.

I have two supervisors and only one of them do that. I also work for Driveline and sometimes they'll email or call asking when something is going to be done.

Driveline is an employer. Spar is not. They used to call and I put a stop to that. It was annoying. Now they email every time. I will send my DM an email and let her know when I am doing my jobs from now on. Why do that do that? I asked the person that sent me the email an got no reply.

New to Spar. How do you know what day is truck day for FD stores? Not a big fan of their site or app. Can anyone give me a hand?

I think it varies by state. Where I live truck day is Monday.
The simplest thing is just ask your store Manager when their truck day is.

It definitely varies by region as mine is on Friday. And yes, just ask the manager and they will let you know.

I agree, their technology is not nearly as cutting edge as they think it is. It works, but it can be very frustrating. Maybe the Apple version of the app is more user-friendly than the Android version, but it seems to be missing logic and user perspective. It is handy, though, to report the jobs in the stores and just sync it later.

Truck day probably does vary by area. Here it's Friday. Some managers will let you work on Friday but you better ask first. Some managers will even let you work the weekend if you're trying to play catch up or get a jump on a busy schedule. The best thing to do is to call and ask the manager.

As for Spar, a very good company to work for but their website is a bit lacking. I wish the jobs were organized by cut off date rather than begin date so I don't have to scroll down the list to see if there's something hiding that needs to get done soon.

How much do we get reimbursed for printing? I do more printing for Spar than anyone. I printed 19 pages for the prepaid project...not counting call form and instructions.

I've asked for a raise for the past 6 years and never have gotten one. I don't do the pharmacy.
On another note Have gotten a new manager. tne fourth one since Jan.
They don't seem to stay around for long in my district.Last year had 3 different ones.Way back years ago when I started with them 1 manager was there for 4 years before retiring.(She had been with them for over 15 years). The next one I had 7 years,she retired. Then #3 was 3 years,from then on about 2 a year.

I've been lucky to have really good managers with Spar. I can't say the same with some of the other companies I've worked for.

I've requested some of this pharmacy work. What is involved with it?
