Shoot! None yet in my area of SC. I'll be keeping me eyes open. Thanks for the heads up.
Which aggregator? I don't see it on JobSlinger. (And, I totally understand if you don't want to share.)

Self assign (yay!) Topped out at 5 for me and keeps telling me to take the certification. I did, and passed, Four times! Now it will not even show the quiz. Guess there are some bugs.

Yay!! I checked again and they were posted in my area!! I was able to SELF ASSIGN 5 shops!! That's new!! The guidelines are a PowerPoint presentation...can't remember if the last ones were as well. And there's also an animated 7 minute video of "Fred" and his guide doing the Regular PO shop. The certification quiz had less than 10 questions!

Hi ColoradoShops, and Welcome to the Forum! It is true, no one will tell you which MSC shops a particular Client, since we all work hard to find our own shops. But sometimes you can find the answer by doing a "Search" on a particular shop from the Search box on any Forum page. I will tell you this much. It is NOT a Sassie company. Hope this helps!
See a bunch of USPS in my area of Western NY.

Shopping Western NY, Northeast and Central PA, and parts of Ohio and West Virginia. Have car will travel anywhere if the monies right.
Thanks! Self assigned five after taking the certification. Hope the five limit is a glitch and can assign more!

@guysmom Gotcha. Thank you! I am still learning the norms.

I can't find the certification. Even though I already took it, there's no record if it being available or completed.

I found it but failed. And no retake available. It was the people-counting questions, I'm sure.

I failed it, too. I did not realize that there was a PowerPoint presentation in addition to the video. I'm going to miss these assignments!
Perhaps you shd contact the scheduler. There may be a glitch in the system that allowed self-assign privileges prior to taking the certification.

I did but the response was that I needed to take the certification (?).
Well that certainly wasn't a helpful response from them, was it? I hope you get some help from the scheduler, and soon!
Some times there is a wait before you can take one of those tests again. If you tried immediately and did not see a retest, wait 24 hours and try again. Not sure what the rule is with this msc.
Still no go and no further assistance from scheduler after another email. I asked Fabulous Fred but, you know how he is, didn't have much to say.

There is definitely a glitch with the system as far as the cert goes. I had problems with it telling me I fail so I kept trying to re-read the guidelines and could not find them printed again. Anyway I tried to retake it several times by using different shops and every time I failed, but it let me try more than three times. I then noticed all of the shops appeared on my assigned list. I went to the certification page. it said I was certified. I sent an email to the scheduler who verified I had indeed passed the test and were assigned five shops. He did state that there is a limit of 5 at a time. Once one is completed you can request another.

That’s not correct either though. I was assigned 9 shops and I haven’t even taken the test yet. Every time I login, it prompts me to take it. Just haven’t had time yet.

Maybe that's part of the glitch? Or they just like you more!

I'm confused. There are none in my state yet but I've checked others and they seem the normal request process, certainly no re-certification, power point or self-assigning. Or are some posted on the original company's newly purchased company?

Shopping domestic and international locations since 2003.
They are adding them gradually, likely as states open up. Arizona is now added.

Regarding the certification, it was super slow to load--I mean dialup kind of slow. I didn't give up because of reading this thread. Passed it first time.

I only watched part of the video because it was buffering so badly. I did learn that we are now supposed to check the trash and take a photo if overflowing.
