It has been a while since I took an assignment, but not because I've been declining, but because there were so many shoppers in my area that I never got any assignments!
BirdyC, glad to hear they are streamlining the report some more. That situation with the lengthiness of the report is my main issue with the shop as well. Last time they streamlined it helped quite a bit. And I personally was given a raise years ago when I was contacted by one of the top people who said I was a good shopper for them and I deserved a raise. Within a month after that they raised everyone it seems to my new seasoned shopper rate. So suddenly I was back at the newbie rate which has not changed despite prices going up in my local market.
I can only imagine that there are lots of shoppers right now declining shops due to the health scares. So that, rather than not enough shoppers, might be heavily impacting their being able to get all the jobs done.
I'm guessing you may no longer find that to be a problem! From what I can see, and from the e-mails I've been getting from my scheduler lately asking if I can pick up declined shops/orphans, it seems that they're having a problem filling shopss!
Can anyone tell me the best email to use to get in touch with Ardent? My account isn't activated, and when I tried to re-apply, my email was already in use. I tried emailing "email@example.com" but have not heard back. Thanks!
