Issue No. 1 for me: Increasing the requirements for the same fee.
Issue No. 2 for me: Increasing the requirements considerably for a pittance more.
Issue No. 3 for me: Not being straightforward about the increased work load when changed programs are first released.
Ran into all 3 on an audit this week. What used to take 90-120 minutes (their estimate was 60) now takes 6-8 hours (their estimate is now 90 minutes). Pay only went up $15. Uhhh, NO!
If you're referring to TS grocery shops, those actually did go up from $5.00 to $6.00 once they started requiring the checks of the 3 items in each of 4 depts.@SunnyDays2 wrote:
Lets take a certain grocery shop:
The money never changed. Every time I see the guidelines, more work is added but the same $5 bucks for the fee.
Irene, the ones I do are paying $6.00. They upped the fee by a dollar in my area when they started requiring checking on those extra items. TS has different Clients in different parts of the country. For the shops that I do for them in my area (SC), they ARE paying $6.00. I did 3 of them yesterday.@Irene_L.A. wrote:
They still pay 5.00, but rules have changed a bit.....not so crazy about them at this point...doing one Sunday, we'll see.
Irene, that's interesting about the Boar's Head....the grocery shops that TS has in my area does not require any deli purchase...only $9.00 minimum purchase of whatever. There is another well-known MSC who does grocery stores...with their off-shore phone callers. THAT MSC in my area does have grocery store shops that may or may not require a deli purchase. It's always interesting to me to see how the very same MSC has different requirements for their different grocery stores in various parts of the country. Yeah, I could only buy so much Boar's Head, too, Irene!![/quote
There is still one that doesn't require Boars Head but the other five all have it in their Deli and really push it....
however, you can get cheese and I do like grilled cheese sandwich's.....so, you spend 12.00 and get back 17.00
I realize I don't have to doubt how far I can go. I just have to remember how far I've come.....
