I know my way around most of the other gas shop MSC's but I've never worked for Steri.
Seeing as I never take a gas shop at face value, is there a process to getting Steri to add incentives to take whole routes? I never see or hear of them incentivizing these jobs.
Seriously, nobody cares that you're offended.
Stericycle regularly bonuses the shops within a week or two of initially posting the job and again every few days until either the shops are taken or the quarter expires. Emails are sent out on a regular basis with the new amounts posted. The only thing I don't like is that they drop the rate back down a few dollars when the shops move from one month to the next. For example, they might be offering $15 on the last day of the month, but the exact same shop will be offered for $10 the next day. But again, they'll bonus the shops as the month goes on. Depending on where you live, the shops are monthly or quarterly, and the longer they sit, the higher the bonus. Right now, 4th quarter shops are $35 (started at $6) and they have been offering a "daily" incentive via email on top of that (I didn't see the incentive yesterday, so it may just be during the week). The quarterly shops will not move into the next quarter though, so if you're thinking of doing any of those, do them now, because they won't be available in January; the new quarter shops will be available at the starting rate. Any time you pick up 15 or more shops, ask for a bonus. They'll often give an additional $3 per shop for longer routes. And it doesn't hurt to ask for more if the shops are hard to fill.
This is a really good explanation. I love this company and frequently get high paying shops at the end of the month, but make sure to snatch them up before they go as they are right back down to much, much lower fees at the start of the month. It's a bit of a gamble. I may wait for something to get in the $20's and when I check back a day later, it's gone. The past few months haven't been as great, because for some reason someone is snatching up all of them around the 4th or 5th day of the month in my area! I love searching for their gas shops whenever I travel towards the mid to end of the month, as I am often traveling to see family.
