Helion Covid Surveys

I was kind of skeptical when I did the first survey, I think I did three for Helion. I had only done one mystery shop for them and they paid in Euros converted to dollars on PayPal. But today I got this e-mail: "XXXXX, you have been selected as one of the... Continue Reading

Helion, anyone?

As I am increasing my list of MSCs I've signed up with, I began the process with Helion today. There is a HUGE amount of required information before I can actually see any jobs. It would take me, I'm guessing, over an hour to have a completed profile. I didn't... Continue Reading

Helion Processor Chip Audit

Has anyone done one of these audits before? Can you give me any insight into the report complexity. It sounds relatively simple; although lots of observations and counting. I'm just worried about narratives, although I can't see there being too many. Thanks for any input.... Continue Reading

Helion's website is a nightmare.....

I recently signed up for Helion. Their website is the most user-unfriendly of all the msc sites I've seen, and I'm signed up with over 100 companies! When I want to see available assignments, it takes several minutes for the locations to pop up while it is "synchronizing. I... Continue Reading
