Hi sestrahelena, without giving too much away, I'm in the Northeast. Absolutely NO L.O.A. with this client/project.@sestrahelena wrote:
Not sure which project this is, possibly not in my area, but don't all gas mystery shops provide a LOA for just in case? KokoBware's situation sounds like the right time to whip out one of those letters.
Ever do a Dash In shop?
Is Dash in a store or a type of shop? I guess I haven't since I don't know what it is.
Gotcha. We don't have that chain in my neck of the woods.
Yeah, during daytime I can generally shoot pump-area infractions and maybe window infractions (if you can tell whether the clerk is looking out) but in-shop photos are pretty much a no-go, the "stores" here tend to be quite small, you can't hide in them. The bathroom is easy of course.@ceasesmith wrote:
I'd like to find a c-store with anything in it I can still buy for $1 or less! These reimbursements are horrible. And when they are NOT reimbursing, it's even WORSE.
Marketforce now wants photos of every infraction you find on the MS. Not doable! Not without getting caught. It was OK when you just had to get an overall and the price sign, but how do you take photos inside without getting caught? I use a digital camera, not my iPhone. I guess if you're using the app, you can just walk around and photo away, because everybody carries a phone anymore. Ugh. Employees ASK, why you takin' that photo?
If you don't get reimbursed but have to make a purchase sometimes they have some type of suckers or lollipops near the register. Yesterday I did a shop that had no reimbursement so I bought a Tootsie pop for 20 cents.
