I've had the same experience. I've been signed up with them since 2008 and have never performed an assignment for them. I get e-mails sometimes, usually about jobs other places. They've had one job here that I have no interest in performing. I never bother to check their job board these days.
I've been signed up for 2 years and the only shop they have offered is the same in home flooring shop. Considering I'm not a home owner and have no authority to change the flooring in the places I've lived, I cannot do the shop. I'm surprised to hear they even offer other types of shops considering I've never seen one.
Do not read so much, look about you and think of what you see there.

Unfortunately most companies will not pay tolls unless you get it approved before the shop. One of the responsibilities we have before completing a shop is to figure out what are costs will be. At that point, communicate with the scheduler and state I can't shop for less than $XX dollars. They may agree or the may not, but you have a much better chance of getting expenses covered before rather than after the fact.
