Does anyone knows why Corporate Research International does not provide payment information for shops that involves training? Maybe I am missing something here but it seems foolish to watch a video presentation for almost twenty five minutes not knowing if the payment will justify taking the assignment.... Continue Reading

What companies besides Corporate Research in NY and TES do movie Checks?

I'm badly needing some work and I've done hundreds of Movie Checks. I do NOT prefer the trailers, bad pay.. too much driving.. too much paperwork. The open checks and IF i'm desperate, the Blind Checks are okay, as long as they pay well. If you are a scheduler, you... Continue Reading

Corporate Research International

Has anyone noticed their job board does not list the reimbursement for most shops, especially if the shop requires a training session?

Another BAD EXPERIENCE with Corporate Research International

This is really frustrating. I was assigned to a Dunkin Donuts shop that had to happen from 4 to 7 pm. I had to buy a ice cold coffee and a "breakfast" sandwich. Yes, I know...a breakfast sandwich after 4 pm? Anyhow...I proceeded and started the shop. I ordered... Continue Reading

I used to do retrievals for Sedgwick (formerly Stericycle), but now they pay $4 less than minimum wage in my area so I haven't taken anything in quite a while. (Source). September 11, 2023

So now that it is $3 as the first bonus, should we expect $6 for the next bump? I remember that company CRI which became Stericycle (that was based in Ohio) and they would bump it by pennies each day for their shops. (Source). June 29, 2023

.. Mousegal, I don't have the link. It's a long story, but here is the short version. I was with RQA back in 2009, they got bought out by Stericycle. (Source). April 20, 2023

Companies like RQA and Sedgewick (Before this was under Stericycle) do product recalls for companies. (Source). April 17, 2023

I used to work for Spar, Hallmark, In store, SRS and Stericycle. (Source). March 13, 2023

I miss Corp Research and Stericycle as well, they would REALLY bump of commissions on their blue & gold gas shops to where it was uber lucrative. (Source). September 26, 2022

Plus retail shops on their regular side. I was really disappointed when they were bought by Stericycle and their assisted living shops were no more. (Source). September 20, 2022

If it was a gas station shop, which is the only thing I saw with Stericycle, KSS schedules that gas station now. (Source). September 16, 2022
