Did they just land a new BIG client? I googled some of the addresses and see they are locations that I thought were shopped another big company. I'm wondering if this is a different project or if they were able to wrestle away this international client.

I have yet to take the quiz. I saw the email.

Yea, it is a big client. I cannot take the test again. Someone did finally reply to my email but did not send me the link to retake the test. I can do these shops with another company and do not do them in my own hometown. They do not have many locations.

Once I saw who the client was I backed out of the test. Don't do them for the other MSP, no point in doing them here either.

MichaelinNH - How about a hint as to the client. I would be interested in who it is that you refuse to do. "BIG" wasn't enough for me to guess it. Or just send me a PM.

So is this a trial run for Intellishop or a joint venture between Intellishop and the other MSC? I can't imagine what the other MSC must be thinking if they lose this behemoth contract.

Isn't it ironic though that intellishop would pay DOUBLE the starting rate for this fast food client and not the other one?

I am sad we do not have that burger chain in my state. I used to eat there when I lived in the west coast.

They will not have many shops to do unless they change their policy. I still have no reply to any of the emails I sent.

TinaMarie - You have the wrong chain. Think bigger. The new client we are discussing has locations in every state and almost every country in the world.

Russ Courtney is running the project. I asked him several specific questions. He never answered my questions, but responded telling me he would send my info to the schedulers. I am dying to see how many clowns are going to put in this much effort (7 page detailed application and quiz) for this nonsense.

I still get the $15 fast food pay on the other chain without all the ppwk hassles.

I only see one FF chain posted in CA. That chain is not in Florida.

Tina Marie,
Apparently there are only a few of these shops listed (there was just one in my area of Southern California). I can see the client if I go to the Intellishops testing center. I took a peak at the test and stopped on the first of 7 pages. They start off by asking for two references and your 10 year employment history.

Up until today, there was zero test in the testing center. It just showed up tonight. Wow...I am SHOCKED! REALLY, they're moving msc????

I see the test, but where's the guideline to read for the test?

After you click on Take The Test there is a bright yellow link to the Test Guidelines. Very interesting, it explains why they are asking for the information being requested.

I passed it on my first attempt, because I have done waaaaay too many for the present msc. It takes about 15 minutes if you can pass it like I did, without reading the guideline.

FYI - If you don't have a smartphone, but have considered getting one this is one shop where it will be invaluable to you.
Download a "Stopwatch" App for the phone, then under the pretense of "playing" with your phone you tap the screen for the stopwatch to capture the timings. I can't imagine trying to memorize these times in my head using a digital watch or clicking an actual stop watch while standing at the counter. You would totally be outed as a shopper!

Has anyone tried the Baseball shops (esp in Chicago) that Intellishop is offering?

Just curious as to how these shops are (easy, hard, time consuming)...might consider doing one of these if it isn't too bad.

Thanks in advance!
