I really, really wish all schedulers would specify which shop they are calling to schedule when leaving voice mail messages. It would save so much time. Lately, I will not call them back unless they tell me what the shop is for.
It is a matter of time management. I work full time plus, and then squeeze in shops whenever feasible, without killing myself. I love self-assignment shops, which are easy to schedule at the last minute. If I have to chase down a scheduler who doesn't tell me what the shop is, I just move on.
Luckily, there are more shops than I have time for. Otherwise, I wouldn't mind the phone tag to get details.
Right there with you, IMT. What's the shop, where's it at, when's it due, what's it pay?
"Grocery shop in Podunk for $30 needs done today or tomorrow" = return call.
"Some shops available in your area" = delete.
Difference in time leaving the message = 2 seconds.
(Email offers without price also get deleted.)
Honestly with me it depends. I get tons of emails but only get phone calls from one company that has west coast numbers that give crappy amounts and east coast numbers that are super nice friendly people. If I get a missed call from the latter without even a message I call them back.
