I did the McDonalds shop yesterday. Options were either drive thru, kiosk inside, or on the mobile app; other options were breakfast, lunch, or dinner; and small, medium, or large drink. I figured I’d do do the lunch at a location near home on the app, since I occasionally have lunch there this way anyway. I ended up taking 59 pictures to complete the shop. One item was not on the menu, and one item category was not available at the particular restaurant branch. It took me nearly an hour and a half to complete the form, and you have to do it on a phone or tablet. It was the most tedious shop I’ve done this year. I will not do it again.@nolimitem wrote:
I did this today with the Mcdonald's shop on the app. I was 35 screenshots in and still not even to the 23 required beverages. I spent over 50 minutes there and was almost late to work. For Mcdonalds? Absolutely not.
I'm dealing with someone at coyle who sent me another 40 questions today on a shop I did 2 wks ago with 176 questions. sz wont pay me any more fee for my time ($15 took me 4 hrs to complete survey). sz survey is being edited but she is asking me duplicate questions. any suggestions?
I've canceled a couple phone shops along the way when various MSCs decided that I would make an infinite number of calls to reach an unreachable target. One was an apartment manager who was clearly not answering the phone (and still hadn't after six attempts). That MSC's apartment call shops are now on my ten-foot-pole list. Another was to a target person with just as many attempts that I later found out had quit (and was not coming back), another on the ten-foot-pole list. A couple were completely unreachable because of perpetually unresolved phone system errors and issues. They are mostly good MSCs, but with some of them, you might as well hang it up if somebody up the ladder enters something incorrectly into the phone system.
The Bowling and Amusement place that had a four hour wait to be assigned a bowling lane. A one hour wait could have been filled with the other requirements of the assignment. And the location was too far away to drive back & forth.
Then there was the assignment to take photos of menus. The report was returned to me with a question. Then it was returned again with a different question. The third return came with a request to drive back and redo assignment. I realized no matter what I did the editor was bound and determined not to pay me so I declined.
Usually I slog through awful jobs so these two stick in my memory.
