ericaalexander, if you noodle around on their site, you will see ~
"Our payroll department begins processing paychecks around the 27th of each month for all shops completed the previous month. For example, any shops completed in February will begin processing approximately March 27th-30th after the client has approved all shops for the prior month. An email will be sent when checks are mailed."
"The Pay Statements link on our website is updated at the first of each month to show the pending payments for the previous month’s work."
Further, they pay by check, from the 27th-30th for the previous month. As stated, SR emails when checks are on their way.
While it is true that SR's checks are generally dated around the 30th, don't expect payment to be in your hands sooner than the 7th or 8th. And no, that is not a mail delay. I live close enough to SR's main office that I get their check the day after the email goes out, and the last 3 checks that I have received have been on the 9th, 8th and 10th. Meaning, the email was sent on the 8th, 7th and 9th.
They must have a long walk to the mailbox or something.....
