ICCDS has adopted receipt upload and online invoice!

I must have totally missed this update, as I have not shopped for ICCDS in a few weeks. I went to submit a shop today and was totally psyched to be able to upload my receipt and simply initial my invoice (a la MF). What an improvement! I know many don't... Continue Reading

Does anyone know how their job notification emails work? Do some shoppers get them before others? Twice today I happened to be checking my email right when one came in. I replied seriously seconds after the time it says it was sent. Both times I was told it was already filled.... Continue Reading

ICCDS Filters

I've finally gotten annoyed about this, particularly concerning ICCDS. I was told that the computer "gets smarter" as time goes on, that if you keep declining shops on the basis of it being too far away from home (one of the options provided), it will eventually stop those offers...

While this is just fine, the problem is that they are not acknowledging receipt of completed paperwork. With their jobs you are required to mail in an invoice... Continue Reading
