Why isn't this work order approved yet?

There are a few reasons this could happen. The first thing is to make sure your work was deemed
satisfactory. By making sure the customer acknowledges you did the job (in writing) before you submit the bill, there is no dispute over whether the work order was completed.

The second issue has to do with chain of command. Your direct supervisor at the job site may not have the final authority to approve the job and release the funds. Always presume up to 72 hours to get from the person who inspected the work you did to the person who has the final OK. Some places take up to five days, but they are supposed to state this up front in the work order.

Feel free to follow up with the buyer if you have not heard anything after two days. If and ONLY if that
fails to resolve, feel free to follow up with Field Nation.
