There are no shops in my area, but I just completed the fast food quiz to determine this and there was a question that interested me. Everything else was just like the company I shop this client for, but one question said, Can you bring anyone with you to complete this shop (or something like that)? And, the answer was yes... Is this for real? If so, I'm so jealous!!! I also liked the fact that you get the answers before you take the test and then if you miss one (which I did because I wasn't reading the questions on the real test), it tells you which you missed and you can try again. Very cool... I want to work for them!

I got another email this evening, for a restaurant that is in my area (makes 2 total restaurant companies in my immediate area) and I have no log in information. I wonder if I can contact them and ask them why I get these emails in my Inbox and Bulk folder..?...

When I lived in Indiana, I absolutely loved one of the new clients. I am so jealous that we don't have them!

I love working for this company, but due to rotation requirements,I was doing it on a once monthly basis. I was very excited to see that they have picked up some new clients and have lots more shops in my area now!

I am disgusted to see the fees for these (potential) clients dropping so drastically.

Hey guys! I was interested to receive an email from Gapbuster recently about the shopper rewards program. Top prize is a trip to one of the 33 countries where they shop! Pretty good prize.

Do you reckon there's a catch?

I don't think there's a catch. Gapbuster is a very large company overseas and so far they have always kept their word with me!

Yes Terra, unlike the other compnay you can take a guest with you. And the pay is not that much lower MaryLou if you consider the fact you are NOT wasting food you can not possibly eat as you can now give it to your guest. I for one love this company.

I noticed that when initially registery to be a shopper for this company that they do not ask for your bank information in the application. However, their guidelines specify that you must give them your bank information. Then, I received an e-mail from a banking company, asking for my bank account information, but to give them the information, "You mu#8238;ts#8236; c#8238;lpmo#8236;ete th#8238;si#8236; pr#8238;sseco#8236; by
c#8238;kcil#8236;ing on the li#8238;kn#8236; b#8238;wole#8236; and e#8238;etn#8236;ring in the sm#8238;la#8236;l wi#8238;wodn#8236; y#8238;ruo#8236; XXXX Membe#8238;sr#8236;hip n#8238;ebmu#8236;r, p#8238;cssa#8236;ode and me#8238;elbarom#8236; w#8238;ro#8236;d." Is this company associated with GAPbuster? If it is, I don't have the information you have to key in, so do I assume I'll receive that information from GAPbuster later?

Thanks!

Hi!

I am supposed to do a shop next week and some fast food in May or June. I didn't see a pay pal instruction. I was wondering if they are still taking out because they are overseas. I was wondering if anyone has any feedback how they pay.

I have always been paid by paypal, and very quickly too. I would email them and make sure that they have all of your paypal information. They always got back to me quickly from all of my questions.

Yes, I updated mine last week to be bank routed. There are no problems with this company.

I did the bank routing also. I have an easy shop scheduled this week and some FF in June. The pay seems fair and they e-mail me and let me know what is going on. I will have to see how quickly they reimburse!

Debbie, that e-mail you got sounds like fraud. Was it Barclay's? I've been getting e-mails from them telling me to provide my account information because it needs to be verified. A classic scam. I don't even have an account with Barclay's.

Yes, it was Barclays! I sure am glad I didn't respond to them!!! I'm pretty new at MS, and I hope other newbies take Volition seriously. I've learned so much from this site! Thanks to you all!

Has anyone had trouble w/ their website today? I completed an assignment for them, but cannot login w/ my XE code and p/w. I called, but the machine said to email them and I did, but now I am stressed about making the deadline. They are great to work with, so I do not foresee any problems with it, but I don't like to make a fuss.
