I was scheduled for a targeted cosmetics shop and I could only be in that town that day. Couldn't get an appt with the target, so I asked to cancel, and instead she gave me credit for a phone shop! Thanks Holly!

Never try to teach a pig to sing. It's a waste of your time and it really annoys the pig.
I tip my hat to Market force. Their website is the best and allows you to reschedule some of your shops without having to call in. The few times I needed to contact a scheduler they have always tried to accommodate any reasonable request.
Thank you to all the nice folks at Maritz that never get upset when I pull a rookie mistake and forget a photo. They always give me a chance to make it right. Maritz has surprised me, and in a good way. They are becoming one of my faves - never thought I'd say that a few years ago.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away
I've enjoyed working with Kimberly from Coyle as well. I'd also like to commend Aileen at Confero, Jen Gladding from Summit, Joe and some of the other TrendSource schedulers, Alicia from A Closer Look, and pretty much everyone at Buckalew and Quest for Best. I'm sure there are others that I'm missing, but those are the ones that come to mind. Great schedulers make such a huge difference in this business!
ETA: And I agree about this thread being an awesome idea!

I would love to give Kudos and thanks to all the wonderful schedulers at GFK, Intellishop, Second to None, International Service Check, Athpower, Beyond Hello (new name Seelevel), Technology Store, Consumer Service Analysis, Norfork, NSS, and Bare International.
My applause goes out to Judy at Ardent Services. She is easy to work with, responsive to questions, laughs at my jokes, and she's done enough shopping to understand the difficulties we sometimes face. She'll rarely ask for help, so when she does I try and go out of my way. It's starting to feel like...like...a relationship?
No. Not really. I just pester her too often and she lets me.... Wait, for a guy, that IS a relationship!

Kudos to Angelique Arthur of Premier Service! Time and time again she managed to iron any wrinkles in my shops. Recently, because of the bad weather, she extended my shop date. Yet, I could not help her with a very rare request for help with some overdue shops, even with a bonus. I will do better next time, I promise.
I have always had the best luck with the folks at Trendsource/MSI. They've always responded in just a few minutes to any voicemail or email I've left. They're honest and upfront about extra pay for distance requests and whether it's a possibility or not. I especially love working with Jacquelyne Dalaten and Erin Biszak.
