IPSOS/Summit woes/call out to scheduler!

Last month, I applied for some shops. Working out routes. I didn't get any notification that my applications were accepted until AFTER I had completed every route! Not possible to reschedule (I won't drive 120 mile round trip for a $12-$27 shop!). Actually, I won't drive... Continue Reading

IPSOS 'smartphone' shops

Who else performed some of these shops recently? I was contacted shortly after entering the reports for additional information. The email said additional incentive would be given with 'details to follow'. Haven't heard anything about that yet. The additional info needed was very limited, but I... Continue Reading

Any idea what's up with IPSOS scheduling...

Approximately a week ago IPSOS (through their scheduling company) posted a multitude of the same shops throughout my state (five of which were in my hood). I requested five of the shops. I was awarded one. Okay, no big surprise. I assumed that the other four... Continue Reading

IPSOS Payment question

I was not reimbursed for a required purchase for pov. I was also not reimbursed for the cost of what I was there to do. (Hard to explain when you are trying not to give away the client) I'm sure 99 percent of you know anyhow. Anyone else have the... Continue Reading

Flummoxed by Ipsos; I think they don't like me :(

Is the Ipsos job-board system weird (as some have alluded to), or do they just not want me? I'm starting to feel paranoid. I registered with them a couple of months ago, and applied for one or two jobs, which everybody in the universe was applying for as well. So... Continue Reading

IPSOS Overwhelmed - Unresponsive

Are they reaching flatline after selling and stretching to complete the "Mailing and Shipping" client? I received an email (finally) from the scheduling company saying that, "...there are only 2 or 3 problems out of 12000 shops scheduled and completed with this program." I find that verrrrryyyy hard to believe..... IPSOS still... Continue Reading
