Is it even remotely possible to remain inconspicuous while taking a dozen pictures during these shops or do employees see it so often that they just don't care at all?... Continue Reading

Does Ritter make it a habit of not reimbursing for shops?

So I just checked my invoice from Ritter. Most of my shops have not been reimbursed. Of course these shops are the gas station shops that tell you NOT to include the receipt with your pictures. Sure it may only be 1.00 per shop (and I can tell you I... Continue Reading

First time I've been angry with Ritter

I had a route of gs shops scheduled with Ritter today. Two of the locations had the wrong address given. The first one wasn't a big deal, as the correct address was only about 10 minutes away, and it was in the direction I needed to go. ... Continue Reading


Has anyone done their gas station shops I was trying to find out what has to be done and how many pictures are required. I asked and they replied information is located on line. What I could see was nothing unless you sign up for the job... Continue Reading

Ritter Lotto Tickets

I was thinking about how Ritter requires you to purchase a lotto ticket for one of their shops. What would happen if the lotto ticket was a winner? Do you suppose Ritter would want to claim that $50 million or more??? Oh how I hope to one... Continue Reading


So I applied for shops yesterday, the scheduler emailed me that it couldn't be scheduled without passing the test (even though I have passed the test and done these shops in the past), so I take the test and pass. All is good. Now I am planning my day so... Continue Reading

Has anyone ever not been paid by Ritter?

I've done shops with Ritter for 3 years now and have never had a problem. I was going through my calendar and noticed that I did 2 shops for them in August and never got paid. Has this happened with anyone else? I sent Ritter an email inquiring and... Continue Reading

The Redundant Ritter's

Just finished a shop with Ritters, and a very long section was NA for me, as I wasn't instructed to perform that scenario. Yet everytime I checked NA, it came up, you must provide an explanation for any NA answers. Also, oddly, you must write in all caps. So over... Continue Reading

Ritter gas stations

I am thinking of signing up with Ritter Associates.

Is this legit? I don't... Continue Reading

Ritter: fair or foul?

There is a shop available near my area that is being advertised with a gas reimbursement, even though the pumps are out of order for remodeling. The scheduler is aware that this is the case, and has not changed the description of the shop, or added anything that would... Continue Reading
