Nothing here either. Maybe if the people that process our payment would get paid like we get paid, our pay would be regular. Since we haven't been paid yet, I'm expecting MAYBE Tues/Wed. I hope. I know the bill collectors don't like the not knowing either.

Marla I said something similar to them a while back on the phone & they told me that they get paid in the same manner we do. Yeah, like I believe that.

Of course I have "ocean front property in AZ" Marla! Would you like to buy it. . .I'm looking to sell
I figure if we got paid on a set schedule that would take all the fun out of guessing when we will be. . .You know, I think I could do without that fun.

sorry, can't afford it. I have a few bridges tho. I think I could live without the excitement of not knowing when I will be paid. But it is cardio exercise, isn't it? I would consider not working for them, but son only has this company.

I look at pay dates as a variation on Murphy's Law... The likelihood of a payment being delayed is directly proportional to the need I have for funds to do more scheduled jobs.

Dar-L, that sounds exactally like their pay schedule. I did notice a DD showing today, of course, not in bank yet.

Mine neither.

Also, Did anyone else note that when CRI changed around their phone menu, they left out the option #3, the "in-store urgent help" line?
Job today, instructions said to call CRI for tracking info if a product had not arrived at the store. I did. After my time on hold, left a message. Got a reply call just minutes after I left the store, too late to do any good.

Pay does not seem to reflect the extra task added to project BAL101909, though. That seems to be par for the course when extra tasks are added to the balloon inflation assignments, unfortunately.

Make sure you call them to get the extra time authorized, best if done on site.
They have several times paid me for extra time with a second DDeposit, within a few days of regular payroll.

Jonathan its been so long since I've done the ballons. I've probably forgotten how. Can't get the store to order helium. I'm scheduled again next week. We'll see what happens. It'll probably be removed again. I would give the store up but it is only a couple of miles from some other stores that I go to every week. Irec a message over the weekend that delivery of the RFD supplies wouid be delayed in my part of the country, not likely to arrive till Mon or Tues. Didn't say why. I had to change my schedule all aroound because of this & if they doon't get here tomorrow I don't know how I am going to do them. If thy come Wed I won't get them till I gert home Wed. night & I have things scheduled with another merchandiser for Thur & Fri with a different company. That can't be changed. I've already put iot off till the last minute. I'm considering doing the visits without the supplies on Wed, if necessary. The stores never need brochures or chit cards. Most of the time I destroy these. But there are some new airtime cards to put up(at one store only) & one of my stores has phones to be returned. Any other time I would have dozens of those return labels but I just cleaned my desk drawer out last week & got rid of all the extras. I could get them all ready to go & then go back to the store when I am in the area next week & send them off. I don't know what to do. I don't think I should have to make a return trip to these areas on the weekend for something that wasn't my fault.

Gayle, maybe I should correct my statement. The DD usually doesn't show in my bank account til the next morning. There has been times that it shows the same day, and times when it shows a couple of days later. I don't trust well enough to use that money, if it not showing in my account via the internet banking.

Hello Everyone,
I have completed many assignments from this company. I have recently noticed that the assignments I accept, take far longer and more complicated than listed. The job description seems very simple. Once you accept the assignment and download, steps and other details are added. I have started to "second guess" if I want to accept jobs in the future. Is anybody else on this forum feeling the same way? Although, I don't post often, I have read and learned so much from all of you. Thank you in advance for any guidance.

Robin, I go thru those thoughts every once in a while, especially since I work for other companies that pay more and more regularly. Right now, I only do certain work for Certified and let the other work go to someone else that might NEED it more than me.

I'm getting sick of their assignments that seem really simple, and then they update the duties multiple times before the visit date, doubling the amount of work and time necessary to complete it. We should an "opt out" option when they drastically change the duties that doesn't have any negative effects on our account.
