Panda Express shops

I believe the other thread was closed because it went way off topic.

Anyways, I am wondering if anyone has seen these bonused yet? I

'm wondering what the bonus will look like. I will be traveling in a few weeks and going thru an area that has a hard time filling fast casual shops for other companies, so if shoppers are NOT doing the other ones (that pay better than these Panda), I'm expecting the Panda to NOT be done either.

I haven't seen any bonused so far. They seem to be sitting on the job board in my area.
No bonuses where I am. Some shoppers are taking them, but many of the lobbys are still closed. Those will only pay as a closed location.
I got an email with maybe 100 locations or so left, and it said that Friday was the last day. But there was no bonus. So I'm guessing this is a program that doesn't have to get every location done. At least not every month.
I haven't seen an email recently about locations still available. Was it sent by a particular scheduler or an automated email like some of the shopmetrics stuff that is "notifications@msc.com" I know this particular shop is not on shopmetrics platform, but i was curious if it was generic email or a particular scheduler.
The emails I have been receiving about Panda Express have been coming from a specific independent scheduler. However, there have been no bonuses added. I might could ask for bonuses, but I have bigger fish to fry right now.

Where is the "closed location" rate?
The MSC is tight with bonuses. May you can contact the scheduler and ask for one?

I just did an online order. They didn't offer online so it becomes a closed location. I'm getting $2.00 and can't do it again for 90 days. ☹
$2 for a closed online shop location is OK if I find out when I am trying to place my order that the location is closed. I would not be pleased at all if I have to get there before finding out it's closed and then I'm paid only $2.

I'm ok with the $2. I wish I didn't have to waIt 90 days since I couldn't do it.

One of the dine-in shops that I couldn't do close to home because the dining room was closed I was paid the full $6 for, and the second one, the one that is 2 hours from my house, also a dine-in that the dining room is closed, they are only paying me $2 for. I don't like it when the rules change randomly in the middle of the project.
I too am bummed at the 90-day rotation. I just wish the MSC reimbursed what the plate actually costs. In my location, the smaller plate costs $8.55 without a drink. The reimbursement of $7.50 is not enough.
$2 on a long rotation is wild. Same to me. I wonder, if it was “closed” why do we have to wait?
Agreed!

I am so happy that none of these are being picked up in my region. The pay is laughable. I hope they wait until the last minute to start adding bonuses and then a massive snowstorm hits the country. And I hope the client gets pissed when lots of locations don't get done.

I am glad to see that these underpaid shops are largely sitting on the boards,
I signed up for a Panda shop, but once I read all the timings involved (hh:mm:ss), I declined it. Not worth the piddly pay, as much as I enjoy the food.
My plate was 9 and change. I waited 30 minutes( outside) to order on a Sunday. It was ridiculous. I won't take another one.
Contact the scheduler with a bonus offer. You decide what it’s worth to you to stop and fool with that. And u say it that way because I did a panda , the food wasn’t that good even though there is a reimbursement and yes the pay for even messing with it is pathetic. I don’t even look twice at the pandas.
Are these Panda shops being offered by the same MSC that was posting them pre-pandemic? (That was the "Who wants a burger?" MSC.) I only ask because I did them regularly in the past, but I have not seen any posted for about 20-22 months. I am not sure if they are using a new company, if they are simply not having locations in my area mystery shopped anymore, or if other shoppers are grabbing them up faster than me. Thanks!
Is it the usual company posting the Panda Express shops? If so, I contacted them and they told me they are not doing Panda Express shops yet.

No, it is now a Sassie company.
