It took a long time before I actually got jobs dispatched to me too. One day I tried making my completion date earlier than what they were asking for, and they chose me. I made sure I got them done by the time I said I would, and I got some next time too.

I FINALLY have been accepted to work in my area for 3 stores. The job desription details are to arrive before the 19th. This morning UPS delivered an envelope with 3 rolls of the hanging tags that affix to product, where the tag has been torn, or broken off the product box. There was not a single thing else in the envelope. Does that mean, I may also receive two, or three more envelopes, before instructions arrive??

Well, after applying for jobs for over a year with CAST, I have FINALLY been assigned the store I requested. Supposedly if I do good on this one, I will be assigned the next 7 visits for this project. Just got my notification this morning and needs to be done by 10/10 and my weekend is already booked solid, so off I go to " git er done" lol.

Karito, I also got 2 of those assignments. Was supposed to have paperwork by noon on Monday, it might have noon in CA but it was late in IN. I did both jobs on Tuesday.

I did two green dot jobs for them yesterday and tried to report. It says the report will be available by 10/15 but it wasn't. I called the help desk but they were closed (even though they are supposed to be available during the time I called). Is anyone else having a problem reporting the green dot job for Circle K's?

I have been doing the green dot jobs for CAST for over a year. I really like them but I have not had an offer for the CVS's in a few months. I'm getting a bit worried since I noticed a new endcap display for all the gift/green dot cards at CVS. Does anyone know if CAST lost the contract with CVS?? I have had Green Dot offers only for Kmart and Walmarts but those are such a pain to do because you have to wait forever for a manager to sign paperwork I just don't do them. I have 14 CVS in my area and also 6 Rite Aids which gave me a nice paycheck. Anyone know???
Thanks.

They have work at the CVS stores in my area also. The "Amex Holiday Gift Card Project" is what I'm mostly interested in but I'm concerned about one thing. They have 4 or 5 stores about 40 miles from me that I could do on a route but they specifically say to NOT pick a store based on a route. Now why would they say that?

It sounds like they want to get away from people taking an 'all or nothing' approach to the stores list. You might want to try calling them and proposing the route, or note it in the comments when applying. All they can do is say 'no', so you haven't lost anything except time by trying.

What I understand is they don't want anyone taking routes because after the initial set up of the display, the stores will have different numbers of revisits. Store A might have 2 visits for December for replenishment and Store B might have 4. If all the stores had the same number of visits for the month it would be great, but that is not the case.

I did some office store GC resets about 6 weeks to 2 months ago. The pay came through just as promised.
This morning. I was auto-assigned those stores for regular visits. The pay is a tad low, but since I service the same stores for other companies anyway, I will make it work.
My concern is the telephone reporting the OOS. How has that worked for others?
Start date/completion deadline Nov 29-Dec 13.

I've been doing the PillowPets/Snuggie work for awhile now, I received my 2 checks right on time, and expecting another 2 checks between mid-Dec and mid-Jan.

Sorry Jeff, I haven't done any of those. I agree their pay isn't the best, but I was going to be working in the stores that I was assigned so it just helped out.

I'm a little confused about this assignment. I started getting emails from CAST offering assignments in my area. So I requested the ones that were close to me. Then today I get a shipment of American Exp cards. There is no work order or anything...I'm just supposed to do this by Friday !
Has this happened to anyone else??

you will most likely get a another email from them stating that you have been 'awarded' the following assignments. I usually get mine the day that the assignment starts. 1 time I received the awarding email the night before.

Harold, just keep trying. I received 2 stores for the PillowPets/Snuggie jobs. I've done a couple of other jobs, but not much.
