Still waiting on a receipt reimbursement...

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Nov 08, 2012 7:27 pm

...sent in on October 2. Sent an email 2 days ago asking about it with no response yet. NYC. This is a firm mentioned here as being one that is potentially imploding. Big Vault firm.

What should I do now? How long should I wait before sending another communication and what should the second one be? Phone? Email again?

How big is the receipt?

If you paid for your own hotel room, that's one thing, but if this is for a $12 cab ride...

You can do that?

Also, did anyone else feel a little bit of spite when they were sending in their reimbursement stuff after being rejected? haha

NYC V10 took ~2 months to send me a reimbursement check. It'll get there.

It was like $120, so I would like it back. 2 months? Really? All my other checks came within about 3 weeks.

Chill.

As much as it sucks that it's taking a long time, you will not get it faster by doing more than is reasonable (which you've already done - mailed it and followed up).

Has the office even re-opened after Sandy?

I waited 7 weeks for three reimbursements, including one that was around $2k.* Ended up calling and emailing to follow up personally, with no response, until it showed up in the mail a couple days later. (NYC - V15s)
That was fun.
(*Since the question might come up, I scheduled 5 CBs on the same trip, and rolled it all into one reimbursement request.)

Is this a W&C in NYC? By the way you describe it, it sounds like it. If so, I emailed them as well recently and they got right back to me and said it was going to go out in like a week or 2

This reminds me that I haven't gotten one from a V15 yet. Interview was on Sept 10.

Random comment:

I know a guy that had 10+ callbacks, he sent receipts for everything: shoe shines, dry-cleaning, haircuts, alcohol on plane, flight upgrades to first class, pay-per-view in room, room service, a mileage log to and from the airport and mileage spent "running errands" in preparation for callbacks, and, here's the kicker, he locked himself out of his apartment and had to call a locksmith when he returned from a callback, the locksmith charged 100 bucks and he sent the bill to the firm. For every firm he dinged or turned down, they all reimbursed 100% no questions asked . . . even the locksmith. The firm he went with he just send a "normal" expense bill.

Kind of an asshole move but, really, if you aren't going to work there, why not just send every single receipt and see what happens? If they pay it they pay it. He lived like a king for three weeks and only ended up swallowing 1-day's-worth of extravagance costs.

Might as well send it. You have nothing to lose.

Apparently the time period is 90 days. I checked. I was super lazy about sending in my receipts; I just sent most of them last week.
