I applied for one of their shops last Friday with a due date of yesterday. It only said don't shop before 6/14, which was last Saturday. So I applied saying I would do it on 6/14. It sat in pending until Sunday the 15th when I was accepted. I e-mailed on Sunday and explained that I wouldn't be able to do it by the due date and could reschedule or would otherwise have to cancel. The scheduler replied that it couldn't be rescheduled and that it was cancelled.
I'm now wondering if this will go against me in their records for getting new shops. After all, it's not my fault the scheduler waited to assign it. If they're not going to look at when you say you're available to complete a job or only care if it's done by the due date, why do they ask when you plan to do it when you apply?
I'm guessing the scheduler had other plans for the weekend and never got around to checking the applications until later on Sunday.
There is a lot of narrative. But in my area the sleep shops have been generously bonused. Very worth it for me. (just don't buy the $4,000 bed as I was sorely tempted to do). That would be a lot of mystery shopping to make up for that purchase.
