Maritz and closed stations.

OK. I have been doing gas jobs for years now. Probably since 2007 with Maritz. I am not being paid for a job and as piddling as it is, it is irksome. I went to a gas station, that the website says opens at 6AM. ... Continue Reading

Are vertical photos okay for Maritz gas station shops?

I have a quick question and I'm sure someone here has the answer. When taking photos for Maritz gas station audits, is it okay to take vertical shots? I've been taking them all with a horizontal orientation because the guidlines specify 640x480 pixels. This doesn't make sense for capturing images... Continue Reading

Maritz Travel Bonus for Gas Station Audits

I passed the screening test after proving that I could email a 640x480 jpg. I was told that they audit the yellow station, the green/teal station, and the red, white and blue station. I was surprised that the shop fee is just $11. A reimbursed 2-gallon fuel purchase and a... Continue Reading

Maritz- Why?

Fewer Maritz Phone Calls Thankfully

Maritz Petrol Shop

Maritz gas station

So three of my normal announced audits just got rebranded. They went from a brand audited quarterly by MF, to a brand audited by Maritz. I enjoyed doing these for MF, as the reports were very straightforward and easy. Does anyone know how hard or easy Maritz shops are? The... Continue Reading

I am so stinkin' frustrated with Maritz right now! Obvious rant :)

I did a bunch of gas station audits last week and 3 (the only 3 edited at this point) have been put on hold. The first because ID pic was blurry and dark. I just checked my pics against what I submitted, no it wasn't. Not one bit of it... Continue Reading


Am I the only one who finds their pay ridiculously low??? I have never performed a shop for them, but have heard good things from many on this board. The only reason I haven't done a shop is that I can't justify the work for the pay. ... Continue Reading

Maritz requesting

Anyone know how long it takes to hear back when you request a shop from them? They have a bunch I'm interested in and I requested a few of them a week ago. All it says on the status page is "Not Scheduled" and most of the shop dates have... Continue Reading

Maritz - New Bank Shops

Please don't mention the client, since I have mentioned the MSC. I see Maritz has a bunch of $20 bank shops with a different bank (not the normal one I see). Does anyone know anything about these shops? And what they involve?... Continue Reading

Maritz bank shops

Just found these: $20 shops. Open an account and cancel w/in 48 hrs. All deposits reimebursed. Wondering if you can do more than one in a week b/c I would think it would show up on their database if you had just opened one at another branch.... Continue Reading

Bare with me while I give you guys all the details... I am a regular shopper for Maritz performing bank shops on a monthly basis. A new branch opened in the town where I live back in March 2012 so I jumped on it. I must have forgotten to... Continue Reading

Maritz Invoices (and other Matitz stuff)

Thumb up for Maritz

I have worked with this company for few months. Unfortunately I will have to skip the next two months (hopefully only that) because I have to have a tumor removed from my brain. Maritz is the only company that actually called me home in three different occasions to ask me how... Continue Reading

Maritz Research won't forgive me

I was a brand new shopper (about 5 years ago) and I was contracted to do a hardware store. The scheduler rang me and said "if you see lawn tractors and mowers outside the store, just keep on driving." I got to the location and there were lawn tractors... Continue Reading

What is with Maritz

EDITED: ICA Violation...... Continue Reading

Dear Maritz... requiring my friends' and family's email address for a shop form is not cool.

It's the last section of a certain questionnaire. I entered "I value my friends' and family's privacy" instead of an email addy. Are they having trouble finding shoppers? That particular shop used to have a higher fee plus three gallons of gas and half the questionnaire length. Maybe that has something... Continue Reading

First Call for Shops in 5 Years from Maritz

Maritz 2010 changes

As I recall it was in 2010 that Maritz decided to strongly suggest that shoppers obtain a FEIN and business name, different from our SSN. And those that did so would receive some sort of preferred shopper status. I chose to ignore this and now notice that the only shops that... Continue Reading

Just wanted to put my two-cents out there about dealing with some nasty, incompetent people with Maritz. 1) I think this is the second time I've spoken to this women, and aside from the fact I can't help but think she probably lipstick on her teeth, she's nasty. No name given,... Continue Reading

Maritz - Gas - No pics

There have been other topics on this, but not one with pics. Couple of questions? Since it says no pics, should I expect the report to be an insane PITA? Another question: It states "Project Description:$12.00 SHOP! Includes GASOLINE, inside purchase AND shopper pay! NO PHOTOS!" and then... Continue Reading

EPMS and Maritz but fair PITA but fair.
