I have applied for a few jobs from them. The first job, I got a response from quickly that I had been awarded the job. I have since applied for 3 more jobs from them, but two of the jobs sat in pending for 3 days then finally dropped off, and the 3rd job still says pending, even though I applied for it almost 5 days ago. If I haven't heard anything by tomorrow, I'll attempt calling a scheduler. Are they normally slow to assign jobs?
I have always been awarded quickly, with the exception of dining. Those sometimes take 24 hours for notification. Now, if you don't get chosen/assigned, you are supposed to receive an email saying the shop was "closed".
I have received closed e-mail notifications for a couple I tried for, and one that I did receive an e-mail on that was closed still appeared as pending. I noticed the due date on the one was changed, so now it's not due tomorrow, but is still pending. I guess I'm spoiled by the instant gratification of Market Force
I have completed various assignments for Intellishop and sometimes they award them quickly but sometimes there is a wait. I have gotten emails that the shop was assigned to someone else. I have found the car shops reports to be frustrating, and not worth the pay when considering the time it takes.
I have been doing assignments with IntelliShop since I started MSing; I just had this critique from an editor, who on one hand said not to write a long narrative and then immediately after stated it was not long enough. Go figure. I still believe it may be a control thing with some editors. Not all editors. . .but definitely some editors. In addition, it is only with a particular assignment that I do. It is a job never picked up right away, pays good so I always wait to take it.
Yeah, I think it is up to the scheduler: how busy they are , might be sick etc. I suggest if it is in pending for 2 0r 3 days you cancel and reapply if it pops back up. All Mscs do not consistently send "closed" emails. Be vigilant.
Yes, MCP is stalling out on approving/declining assignment requests as well. Some have been in limbo for over a week and a half now, yet they are still posting email announcements about these same jobs.
