New item for Maritz

FYI - As of today Maritz has added a motor oil question on one of the brands that had not required it in the past. Suggest you check the updates.

It is only a few questions. It adds about 2-3 minutes to the usual shop.

True, but if you don't indicate the types of motor oils the report will be rejected.
2-3 minutes here, 2-3 minutes there and 2-3 minutes over yonder add up. I am reminded of two tales: The frog in the pot where the temperature was slowly increased and the camel who had but a few straws added to his load every trip.

But took out the pump decal (tier) question.

I was referring to a different brand
I was a little disappointed that they did not add $.50 to the shop like I think they did when they asked for this is Q4 last year. Their other brand added it. They stopped giving us the extra $1 if a station required an additional check in the fueling area, too, with little fanfare. Still one of my preferred shops, though,

If it is the yellow shops....They added .50 for the oil/antifreeze questions. I just snap a picture of that section while I am there.
This is what I do. I prefer completing the shops at home on my pc with my nice cup of coffee and slippers. I could probably do these in my sleep.

I enjoy awkward questions and uncomfortable silences. This gas station pavement is $%^@*#& hot.

It's not the yellow shops. One of their other stations added this requirement a couple days ago. Not as intensive as what the yellow's ask for, but the same increase would have been nice especially when they took away our $1 for special checks in the forecourt when that applied.

I do the same though, I just take the picture of the section for both.

Actually, the "Yellow" gas station shops added this requirement for the September shops. They were kind enough to alert the shopper of this and, in their beneficence, added 50 cents to the shop pay. As others state, it may be wise to take a photo of the oil and coolant offering. I note that they ask for various types of oils along with the brand and sizes offered on certain types (quarts and gallons). For the coolant, just manufacturer is asked.
But, just in this past week the "Blue" gas station shops are now asking about "lubricants" without any additional compensation. They did this earlier in the year (I think) and then suddenly stopped. I had added a space on my worksheet for the question and continued to take the photo and fill out the space anyway.

BTW, in September there were some "Pilot Program" shops for the "Blue" gas stations. This was for the new year, 2020 shops. There were not too many different questions so to speak.

I do like Maritz gas station shops, I just wish they would increase the base pay. The base amount of $12.50 (and even $13) seems to fall short.
