Has anyone worked for DJC or DJC's (a Sassie Site). I just received a job posting from them. The thing is neither my wife nor I remember signing up with them, yet they have all of our contact information and we can log into their site. We both have seperate accounts. Could they have changed their name AND their website address?

Thanks,
-Tim

DJC: PART of Hilli Dunlap was purchased by new management and part of the motivation of the transaction is so the remaining part of HD can cover its due payments.

I attempted to log in, and also have an account with them. However, I don't recall signing up with them, and the site has older information - it has my previous address (I moved in April), and it has my MSPA silver cert (I went Gold in March). It states my sign up date was June 2004.

There is no shop history for me, so I can't figure out what company it might have been, if it was a name change. I have never signed up with Hilli Dunlap, btw.

What a surprise this was. I'm there too. It looks like all the profile information is exactly the same as what shows on my Hilli Dunlap profile. shopper # and date signed up are the same. But also old information in my case too. My new address is there. I moved in December but still shows a silver certified. I went gold in may and just updated the HD site. Is this a second new company started by Doug?

Well I guess I'll see what happens. I was accepted for a shop with them (real quickly after applying too). I plan on doing the shop tonight.

When I got my first job offer from DJC's, I went to the SASSIE site. It had all of shop history from Hilli Dunlap. It has since been removed. But, they're obviously linked.

I also was accepted for a job and will be completing it tomorrow. The email stated that I would be paid on the 18th so I'll let everyone know how it works out.

O.K. I'm totally confused. I read this thread, and a Hilli-Dunlap thread. I clicked on the link Doug put for his address, and it stated, "site under construction". I, too, took a shop from DJC, even though I did not recognize the name. (Or BRIGHT green color!) But this website does not show ANY of my former shops. Including an oil change shop I did in April that I'm still not paid for. Anyone have any idea where this shop may have gone? Is there a sassie website someone can post? I looked under mystery shopping companies on here, (Volition), but saw no Hilli-Dunlap. This company gives me a headache...Lisa

Lisa...I found that to be confusing too. So did my friends. I think it is because the sassie thing looks the same and sometimes I forget what is what! I have done shops for Hilli Dunlap, IntelliShop, Reality Check, DJC's, and Professional Review, among others. All of them look pretty much the same when logging in because of the sassie screen we deal with. Maybe that is part of the MSPA or something. I don't know but it can get confusing. My answer would be to check out the different companies you work for. You may be looking at one company for something you did for another. And since it all "looks" the same (at least for some companies, you can look for things in the wrong place! I have done that WAY too many times to mention!

I hope this helps. BTW, the Hilli site is www.dunlapenterprises.com .
Reality Check is www.rcmysteryshopper.com . I have lots of others if you need anything else! Good luck!

I just thought I would let everybody know that I received payment for a shop completed less than 2 weeks ago . Since they have taken over HilliDunlap's FF client they have been a pleasure to work with. I will be doing more shops for them in the future.

I have found this company to be great so far. Communication is prompt and Jeff has been terrific when it came to changes I needed to make. Payment has been lightning fast. Completed a shop on the 24th, paid in the morning of the 25th.

Do the schedulers contact for jobs? When I have looked at Sassie site I see few listings, currently there are only 3 postings for the whole country.

I just performed a shop for DJC and received immediate payment. Staff was helpful in keeping in touch with me and the client was a fun one.

I'm very pleased thus far.

I'm in their database, too. How on earth did we get there with all our personal info, including passwords?

I never signed up with Hilli Dunlap, at least I don't have a record of it.

I received payment promptly for my shop and have completed a few other shops for them as well. I receive email notifications for their jobs and just signed up for another one. The schedulers I have worked with have been great and payment seems to be timely. I will definitely continue working for them.

I also wanted to add that I was also extremely hesitant to perform any shops for DJC. I never registered with this company and yet they have a complete profile on file for me.

It seems pretty clear from the prior posts in this thread that the company is somehow connected to Hilli-Dunlap - a company which has caused me great grief. When I saw that this new company was offering shops for some of the same companies that I'd previously shopped on behalf of Hilli-Dunlap, I came straight to Volition to find feedback. I was very relieved to read this thread.

I'm happy to report that I completed a shop for DJC on 8/13/06. I was promptly paid on 8/29/06!! I've since applied for a 2nd shop! Now, if I can only get paid for the 2 outstanding shops I performed for Hilli-Dunlap in January 2006...

Happy Shopping Everyone & Thanks For Posting Feedback. It Helps Us ALL!!!

A quick update on this company... I have done a couple of shops for DJC's. The most recent shop was on a Saturday night, and the reimbursement and shop fee were in my PayPal account the following Thursday. The shop instructions are clear and the reports are straightforward. Jeff is great to work with.

Just wish they had more shops in my area!

I have had such a positive experience with this company. I completed the job on Sunday night, and had payment on Tuesday. Jeff answered all of my questions within an hour, if not faster.

The shop was fun (even though the meal was quite a nightmare for the location because of poor ordering and delivery service). At least the food was fantastic. Jeff even increased the reinbursement when the deliver minimum and service charge were higher than expected.

I look forward to a long relationship with this company!

Happily shopping in North Orange County.

I just completed a FF shop for them. I was told payment comes via PP and takes 1-2 weeks.
