Do they expect you to do this for free? Or will you be compensated for it?

Placing an order for expedited service does not equate to requesting hard
won data to minimize research time.

As a teenager I worked in a warehouse. We had a sign on the front desk. It
said "Failure to plan on your part does not account for an emergency on my
part" In other words I am not going to bend over backwards to deal with your
lack of planning. The "Service Economy" has changed everything. I do not
think it is a "generation issue" either. Many of us are in the SERVICE
Bureau industry. Nearly every day I deal with customers (young and old) that
need their parts yesterday. Since we are now in a "service economy" you have
to try to get the parts to the customer yesterday. Otherwise they will find
a more service driven company to do it. My, what a web we weave.
