$12 energy shop potentially taking 35 minutes just on site? Ha!

"Super-easy shop" paying $12 for a (supposed) 10 to 15 minute interaction plus report. Maybe sounds attractive to some, maybe not. to others. But: "If the agent is not present, you must stay for 20 minutes to see if they return."

Yeah, right. I'm going to possibly spend 35 minutes on site, then fill out the report, all for $12? Thanks, but no thanks.

These shops have been sitting and sitting, and I've been waiting for a bonus to be offered. None forthcoming.

Birdy, on a positive note, a shopper can walk around and do other tasks to fill the time.

In my opinion, only a small fraction of shops are actually worth base pay, and that is even if they are really close to home. This is certainly one that could turn into a really frustrating experience for $12.
I have to check. I delete as soon as I see the email, and I don't remember. See how much of an impression it makes on me! Not.

MSC? Since you haven't mentioned the client? Pretty please?
Cease, I can't for the life of me remember which MSC this is, and, naturally, I haven't gotten an email in two or three days for one of these! Damn! Must be some sucker, er, shopper, took the one near me.

If it were $12 and you didn't have to wait around for up to 20 minutes, it might be an OK shop for many. But I did a similar shop once, where you had to wait if the representative was with another customer. As bad luck would have it, a customer asked the rep for help literally (not figuratively) the second I walked into the department. I ended up spending almost an hour on site, then doing the report. All for a whopping $15 or $16. Not gonna do that again. Nope, nope, and nope.

Found it, as they need it done this month, too, I guess. It's IntelliShop. Naturally. LOL. Same company I did the paint shop for.

I do these all the time. If you go at the beginning they probably aren't even on site. So I walk around and do my shopping and then I'm done.
