I did one job for them in 2008....they call me today asking if I could help out with an airport job in San Francisco. I tell him, I live in Los Angeles which is 400 miles from SF, 1 hour flight or 6 hours drive one way. Surprise, he argues... Continue Reading

DSG Associates

I have read through the old, closed thread from 2016-early 2017 and wonder if anyone has more recent experience with this MSC. I am seeing a lot of CU shop opportunities from them that might make nice additions to a route, IFF they are reliable.... Continue Reading

DSG Associates issue

I have noticed that DSG has been extremely slow in paying the last few months. Are they having money issues? I am now having to email and call to get paid for shops done early December! They don't pay much then add the time to track down payment and... Continue Reading

DSG Calling me but I am not registered with them

I did not recognize the caller ID so did not answer. DSG Associates was the tag. They called a few days ago, again today. On the message they left they used my first name. Today the gentleman that left the message sounded like he just woke up and he mumbled... Continue Reading

DSG Associates - BEWARE!

Any recent info about DSG?

Hi all. I did a search for topics about this company and what was available seemed to be old threads. Does anyone have recent experiences with this company? The info presented in the older threads didn't look overly promising. The shops that were open by me looked OK, but when... Continue Reading

DSG Associates

I haven't had any problems with the work I've done with them, but I've had it up to ** HERE ** with the outsourced schedulers calling me. Their voicemails are all but unintelligible. Sometimes, they call and all I hear is people talking to each other in another language, not... Continue Reading

DSG - As bad as funeral shop

DSG has changed - my recent experiences

So I've been shopping for DSG off and on for around 10 years. They used to have pretty sharp phone representatives who would call or who you'd reach when you needed to ask questions or call in a shop. I got a call a few days ago from a representative who... Continue Reading

DSG Associates

Has anyone shopped for this company? I use to love working for this company until they started hiring schedulers in the Philippines. It's soo frustrating working with them.

working with DSGAI - do you have problems too

I would like to know other shoppers experience with DSGAI. I did the smartphone shop with 3 different insurance companies.

Wow... what happend to DSG ??

This company used to be a neat one to work for. Didn't pay much, but the reports were short with just a short naritive needed. Even though you had to phone in your results, and their website looks like it's from the 90's, I always thought they were a great... Continue Reading
