I got a call last week for a shop with Marketforce to do a gas station install of a jerky display. They mailed me a box UPS and gave me address and phone number.
I went to the shop on there deadline and the gas station didnt exist at the address they gave me. Accross the street was a gas station of the same name. I called and sure enough the number matched that gas station, but the address was differnet.
I went inside and they already had a jerkey display just like the install I was supposed to do.
I called the number provided on my sheet multiple times and left multiple messages on Friday asking for a call back. I updated status on the webpage asking for a call back.
I finally got frustrated and decided to close the shop reporting that the store did not exist at that location. It did not have any spots to add details so I just attached some pictures of the spot that they sent me to and the store that already existed.
Its now a few days later and I still have not heard back. I have a giant box of beef jerky in the car that I have no idea what to do with. And I have no idea if I will be paid for this install? The only reason I took it was for the price they offered as it was pretty far away.
Anyone have any experience with this? I know they were just taken over by SPAR and the lady identified as Marketforce/SPAR research, but the phone lines dont seem to work or be valid anymore.
Trying to figure out what the heck to do with the box and if I will get paid! Guess I just have to wait it out?
First thing first, I had the same problem, that is not a box of jerky but rather a display to put jerky in. Inside the box should be a prepaid fedex label to send it back. I went to the gas station that had one, so I submitted the report as though i completed it (by direction of marketforce) and I sent it back. I got my check in the mail last week. Hope this helps
