Thought my completed shops disappeared, apparently my log was set to current shops instead of any. Shout out to Ellen Barkhouse at Ath Power.

I emailed Ath with my concern that all of my completed shops had disappeared in my shop log. They use the Sassie platform. Turns out it is an easy fix. She emailed me almost immediately with instructions: In the Status/Job ID column of your shop log, click on the arrow to... Continue Reading

ATH Power- how can I get a shop with them?????

I've applied three times now to a bank shop near my town. The application sits and sits past the deadline and then, evidently, they assign it to someone else, because it disappears. These are well-paying shops and I want at least one! Any of you have any tips as to... Continue Reading

Has anyone done (regular) bank shops with Ath Lately?

They had the "customer retention" shops, where if you are a customer, you go in and (try) to close your account. I did one. (you are only allowed one of those). Ath is my bread and butter and I pulled in ALOT of banks. But in the last two months, the only... Continue Reading
