I've had trouble with submitting reports for the grocery store audit. One time it took me almost 3 hours to finally get the report in. I like doing the other (just reimbursement shops) but I'm tired of buying something big enough to put on the bottom of the cart.

It finally happened. After 10 years, I no longer have any shops showing up on the page. I haven't been able to do the burger shops since my son worked for a fast food rival, even though it's been 3 years since he quit. There were the Chinese restaurants and the wings restaurants that I enjoyed, but they're not really good choices for me. I just couldn't say no since I enjoy their food. I had a shop scheduled, forgot it(where was the reminder email they were always good at sending me, no excuse, I know?). I clicked on the link in the email they sent telling me it was overdue, but it didn't show anything so I couldn't reschedule it. All in all, it is better for me. I couldn't do the grocery shops because the last time I did one, the employee recognized me from before. Now I just shop there because I really like them.

I guess I spoke too soon. I had turned off the email notifications and today I decided to check and see what they had available. I was able to see the shops that were available in my area. I guess I'll be tempted again to do the shops I like.

McBarb, they have added another one. It's a low pay reveal but if you like the food, the reimbursable covers a good choice of selection. I did these last year and they were fun but I think I remember they paid a lot more.

I checked to see if they had any grocery shops and they lowered the fee from $5 to $3. I will let them sit there for a while til they go up. One location has a grocery shop for $6 ... offered for the next few days and for October the fee is $3. I see they are not doing well without McD's but this is too much. $3 fee? Come on.

I wouldn't walk out the door of my house for $3.
They got to be joking.

I emailed helpdesk and got a reply about the new "Make Me An Offer" link for certain shops. I never saw that on their website. Has anyone seen that?

Might that be something from their mobile app? I don't use it but perhaps someone else knows.

It makes sense that it would only show up on the time-sensitive shops close to a deadline. They need them done and if your offer is somewhat reasonable, they might take you up on it. They certainly aren't going to post that link with shops at the beginning of a period.

Has Market Force really lost their big fast food client?

Wish I knew who has them now... I could always count on the cash (and the calories).

KathyT, I don't believe anyone is doing McD's now...I believe they stopped their MS program....for now. If I am wrong on this, someone please correct me!

What do you think of their new website? I had a little trouble finding job details, such as guest information, like who should accompany me on the job.

I found it confusing at first, but not now. I am used to it and like the features.

MF must be rolling out the new website in waves, because my view of the site is that same as it has been for months and months...nothing new yet.

I do not think everyone is seeing it at the same time. Barb, what do you like about the new features? Maybe I am missing some things.
