I did my first ones today and took multiple pictures of all the items they asked about except the pumps. But when I did the report, they only asked for one of them. I would have been fine taking only one of each required picture and it would have taken much less time.
I do a ton of gas stations, yellow, blue, green whatever. I've done 160 of them since Jan 1st. I've gotten it down to a point that I can be in and out in an average of 14 minutes. Sometimes 12, sometimes 16. Very rarely over 20. Reporting takes me about 10 mins per shop. Forget reporting on my phone while there, uploads take way longer on the phone than on my home PC. Get a system down and you'll be fine. My biggest keys are to make sure I stop and verify I have a picture of every pump especially if I'm far from home as that is the easiest to miss for me. I make my own checklist of every required picture for each brand. After doing a few I don't need it but if I haven't done a Shell in a month for example I might look it over while doing the shop just to be sure. I also take a picture of every single problem I see even if I don't need the pic, that is my way of recording what issues there are. Take a few extras here and there. I'm also willing to drive and can make a solid $400+ day route pretty easy at the end of quarters going to small towns with bonuses, granted that could be a 14+ hour day by the time I report it all. Don't be afraid to ask for bonuses if the shop is a ways and you're willing to drive. The closer that deadline gets the more desperate they get. I'll start really trying to negotiate long routes about 2 weeks before the end of the deadline. I just plan on doing it in my head and leave time open specifically for that reason.
They shot themselves in the foot with the BP shops and that ridiculous test they had for the past year which they wouldn't tell you what you had wrong and refused to help. If I couldn't pass it despite gas shops being my main interest I don't know who could. When they eased up the test a month ago and opened them up they were desperate to get them all done in a month. I did 61 BPs in the last 2 weeks of April for over $2k and never went over an hour from home.
