My job board is down to one gas station and the bedding store. What is going on with this company? I earned the most from this MSC in 2012, down in 2013, and now...the board is pathetic. I know early in the year, it's slow but I hope the shops appear soon.
I wonder if the transition to Stericycle caused friction with the clients. Business is built on relationships. CORI most likely had one account manager who worked with one or two people on the client end. With the departure of the account manager, the client may have no longer felt loyal to the MSC and decided to shop out their business once they reached their contract term. Would explain the departure of other clients.
Shopping since 1995; full-time since 2009. Blogging about shopping on www.myfrugalmiser.com.
All I have seen here are the 2 types of B, B and B shops along with the gas station/carwash combo that also entails an ADA compliance shop. There are a few other types of shops - low pay - too much time wasted for the pay.
BTW February has been up for a while - at least here - its worse than January - maybe as this month's end nears, it will have more - maybe..........
Even their schedulers report they have no idea what is going on.

Has anyone seen the gas station loyalty card shops? I actually did a fair number of these since CoRI/Steri does direct deposit and pays weekly, and I'm wondering where they went. Especially since I printed some extra forms by mistake and kept them around for the next time they came up...
The only shops that I have done for them are the hardware , the pool, and the recliner shops. Now that they no longer have the hardware there is not much for me. Its a shame because the shop fees for the Hardware shops were excellent once they escalated.
I'm not sure about that. I am guessing that Maritz is going to win this one.

Maritz never had any shops for me in my area until now. I am glad to see the DIY store since I am at the store every week. However, not sure if the schedulers really know if they have lost a client. I have worked with several schedulers that are not really up to speed on the job they are recruiting for, let alone what is going on inside the wall of the company they are recruiting for.
I just saw a shop on their site where you have to drive to the location. Check out the product, interact with the employee including asking questions and asking to be shown similar products, then taking a photo of the product. Then you go home and call the location on the phone to ask about shipping policies and then you enter the report and upload all the marketing materials you were given. Pay $5.00.
I got accepted to this MSC today and there was maybe 20 shops on the board. It was kinda annoying to have to take all those certification tests just to see the shop details. It must have taken me close to 3 hours to get through all their tests and reading and watching those videos. So, they have like 4-5 clients in my area as far as what I can see. The big bedding place, the car wash place, a baby store and a recliner place. The bedding place would take at least an hour when all is said and done for a whopping 5.00 plus reimbursement of 8.00. I wish I could see that before I wasted my three hours. I know that they pay on e a week but 5.00? It's not even worth the drive for that.
Floating around like a feather hoping the wind will set me down somewhere awesome.
Historically, as the month rolls on, the rates gradually rise - $5 shops become 7, 10, 12, 14, 18, and then $20 or more .....IF no one else accepts them at the lower rate. So keep an eye on the website.
