I am confused and wondered if anyone has experienced this. I got three separate emails from CORI today about gas station shops that have been gone for awhile. When I saw the email, I thought they might be back and so I checked and they aren't. The first shop was a bit far away, so I thought it just wasn't showing. Then I got an email about one very close to my house and immediately checked board and nothing is there??
I emailed the scheduler and asked him what was going on, but am still awaiting a reply. Did anyone else get these emails today? If so, were the shops actually on the board?
I got them. When I replied that I could not sell assign because the,y were not in the board any longer, I was told someone else had taken them in response to the email. They were highly bonused so I am not surprised they went. I assume they were direct scheduling the "last" of this round of shops and when they return to the board they will be back at $4 per. Just a guess.

Yes, there is more to NY than NY City.
Any help is appreciated.
I was thinking that too, except there was only like 10 minutes between when the email came in and when I checked the board. There was not a "B" for back up, so someone would have to take it and complete it in 10 minutes for it to be completely gone, unless someone grabbed the back-up spot too. It's possible I guess, but I will also say that I was on the road all day and checked the site at least 5 times and never saw any of these shops... seems bizarre.

I agree with you, it seemed too odd that all of them were gone almost right away. If one had still shown needing a back-up, I would say okay. I rarely see shops get the backup position taken around me, I figure people don't think they have a shot at getting it and don't bother. It would have been weird if all of the shops were taken right away, and had a back-up person right away.
Watch to see if they do show up as backup tonight or tomorrow. If they were actually there at all, the back-up symbol should be in place until the shop gets cleared. Also, there's usually a lag time of up to an hour between the symbol changing from a cart to a B on the board after someone self-assigns a shop. If you never see the backup symbol for the shop, it's almost certain that the shop was never available and that the scheduler goofed or was given bad information.

I checked last night around midnight and none of the shops were on the board; checked again this morning and the same...guess it was a glitch or mistake. When I got the emails I was really hoping those shops were back, I've missed them this month. I'll keep watching...
If we asre talking about the blue and yellow gas shops that have been off the board for the last 2 weeks,I understand it was a contract that was delivered late by the company in question. However the jobs in question were posted yesterday morning in my area(northeast). I signed up for 10, but the shops requirements have changes, so a new test taking is required.
Happy Shopping to all.
