CUSTOMER IMPACT - BUY BACK SHOPS - FEELS WRONG

Late to the party, here. Thank you to Daniel Price. Is the increased pay just for the one poster, or is it for others? tia.

The only real universal concern: potential monetary cost to the worker. Are you driving a great distance? Are you purchasing a significant number/expensive amount of stuff? (I have an unlimited card and would not wish to push this issue, but I could if necessary.) Do these gigs fill in a larger schedule for you, or are they stand-alone or just a few for you?

Just for me: Easy peasy! In the first round, only one location had the designated product/specific size. All units were acceptable. In the second round, several locations had the designated product/size. All units were acceptable, and there was nothing to buy.

YMMV.

Hi Shop-et-al! I meant that more as a general goal for CI, not necessarily for this specific project. I'll continue to look for more projects/customers/business that can provide all types of shops/visits, including ones that we can pay higher on. We hope to be able to provide a wide range of opportunities for all our shoppers.

My frustration is I’ve applied for 10 and was only assigned 1. If I’m trying to put together a route it’s really annoying to be declined all but 1, two separate times, especially when I apply as soon as I get the email. I understand first come first served, but something about the whole thing does feel janky to me.
I am aware that product recall assignments exist. I have not completed any of those. Perhaps another merchandiser who has completed that overt task will tell us about it so that we can compare it with this merch/performed as a regular customer task.

The same thing happened to me almost two years ago. I asked politely for an explanation knowing that I had applied for about a dozen locations within a few minutes of the time I got the email. I also only got 1.

I was told that schedulers don't get the list of applicants in a time order of when they applied meaning it's not first come first served basis.
