Just to give you all a heads up--There is a message now posted about Dec. payments. It says there was an error on some of the perm. assignments and that they will let us know once the error on the amount has been fixed.

I had a DD yesteday for a whopping $8. This was for a balloon assignment done on 12/14. Nothing for work done 11/30 -12/2. I was all ready to come on here & vent about it when I saw the message about the screw up. Problem is it didn't mention the 11/30 dates. Only those in early-mid December. I'm hoping that when they get it straightened out the Nov pmts will be incl. Nice Christmas present huh? Oh & for those of you doing the DG DVDs I also got a message that they are doing away with some of those. Apparently we will be returning everything in Jan. So far I am losing just one of mine.

Haven't heard that Gayle. Hopefully none of mine are affected.

My check was very light also. They paid for all my FRE's even thru the 16th (which surprised me!), but paid for none of my permed DOL's. Really knocked my gift shopping in the head!!
Last time this happened they just sent another round of pay out a few days later for the difference.

Haven't heard anything about the DG being cancelled. All of mine are still scheduled for the month of January. I would think that the stores that are being cancelled are the slow moving sales stores. Especially since it is a pay by scan program and the product is not paid for by DG until it is sold so when there is a high theft volume the provider has to eat the cost.

I was informed today that the client has cancelled the remaining WCF assignments due to not being able to get the trays shipped before the due dates.

The payroll error was due to an upgrade of their system. It seems (from what I was told) that the proper rates weren't paid for most assignments but it is being corrected. I can remember this happening once before to me and they sent me a second check afew days later.

The two of my Dg that were cancelled had serious - and I do mean serious theft problems. I was surprised Sony tolerated it as long as they did.

Re: this week's pay--
I was paid at the correct rate for 12 assignments, however, I completed 26 other assignments during that same period for which I was not paid. That's a big chunk of change!

My son got paid for his work, but I haven't seen anything. I haven't been paid for my work was for 11/30 thru today. I also haven't seen anything regarding the DOL work for January or any being cancelled. But I would not be surprised. By now, nothing surprises me, unless it's something positive.

None of my 17 DG stores have been cancelled as far as I know. I just looked and I have a 2nd check posted today that has the other assignments and corrections. It included work that I did on 11/30.

Re: Pay. It was the permanent assignments that were messed up. No 2nd check for me yet. The DG store that is doing away with the DVD program was one with a very high theft problem from week one. The rack is half way down the aisle facing away from the registers. Very difficult to keep an eye on it. What is weird is they have it scheduled for a reg visit next week & then a "take down" the week after that. Why bother with a visit next week at all? Also 2 of my stores still have the "Planet 51" Promo in them because of the schedule change for the visits I haven't been to these stores for a month now.

Got the rest of my pay, well kinda-- they paid the 60 minute Krogers at the 45 minute rate.

Found record of that payment & the other 'mystery' Sony payments at the very bottom of the Payment Info page, underneath the record of mailed checks. They are listed as checks, not DD, but each of mine was electronically deposited.

Hope that helps & Merry Christmas!

Thanks Winona, I just checked the bottom and I got a payment under the 'new checks', dated 12/23. Now I need to check the bank account. I didn't even think to look there, again Thanks.

Just checked, it's there. YEA!!

Gayle,

Most of my stores have the Planet 51 promo still in them too. I guess we process them as a "regular" return since there isn't a spot on the field form for those returns.

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

I get automatic deposit. I thought I knew the website, but is there a place where I can find out for sure which assignments they are paying for. I do a lot of work for them.

I don't think they would cancel anyone's check payments, since they can't do that to our automatic deposits. I think they would just adjust the payment accordingly. I had another company that paid on the wrong time period, a later one, so they just notified us and paid for the earlier one the next time. I'm not sure what kind of mistake Certified made, but I suppose they'll just adjust the payment.

I had not heard about losing the Sony assignments, but I have another company that has picked up assignments suspiciously like them, but for another client. I didn't know if it was the other fixture at DG or what, since I haven't looked at the paperwork yet.

They can't cancel DD, but they can withdraw a DD. I know I've other DDs deposited and then withdrawal due to a mistake. Usually this happened almost immediately. I've also had DD deposited into my account that were not mine, and I had to pay it back later.

Sandra on payment information. click on the payment ID # and it will give you a list of what assignments that payment is for. I have to go see if any more money had been deposited in my account. Yep there it is. Also the "extra" check that showed up in my bank account in November that really wasn't "extra" after all. LOL I wonder why they put it all the way at the bottom?

Well, the pmt is listed as I said above but the amount is still incorrect. During this period I had 3 DGs & 2 FLs which needed promotional corrugates taken down & the DVDs returned. It used to be the allotted time on the reports would allow for this task, now it doesn't & you have to call each time, which I did. I only asked for 15 add'l minutes per store & was told it would be recorded in my file & "no problem". But the pmts rec 12/23 did not include this extra time. I sent a pmt inquiry. Wonder how long it will take to hear from them? It's not a lot of money but it's mine for work I did.

Who knows how long it will take. . .You may have to wait for the 6 weeks period to pass and then send another inquiry. I thought I read somewhere that inquiry's made less than 6 wks. after the completion dare will be deleted, but I may be wrong??

I've always received responses within 7 days or so, but I have always waited until 6 weeks have passed.
