I haven't shopped for Mintel in about 18 months, although I have logged in from time to time to consider a shopping opportunity. Now, it doesn't recognize my email address. I've never had another MSC do this, anyone else experience this with Mintel?
From time to time I notice that companies say they will deactivate you for inactivity, but have yet to have that happen to me. I, likewise, have never found a shop I could complete for them. I haven't been with them too long yet (maybe 9 months).
I agree, I really like them. Not too much work available but definitely varied and interesting when you do get it. Pay is fair, fast and they are nice to deal with if there is a hitch. Wish more companies functioned like theirs.
I've had two companies deactivate me for inactivity: BARE and Gapbuster. The latter, I think because the phone number I gave them went out of service and I never updated it (they did not have any jobs I cared to do at the time).
Now, Mintel? I've always wanted to work for them but they almost never have work in my area.
I have a few consistent monthly projects with Mintel. The shopper pay is good, on time and consistent. They are easy to work for and they don't nitpick for details. I have done more shops with Mintel this year than with any other company.
I, too, wish they had more shops. I've got a few of the ongoing month shops which are like "bread and butter" shops. Easy, peasy reports. I keep trying to qualify for some of their other shops but so far to no avail.
They only have bank shops in my area and I haven't been real interested in the scenario the last couple of months. I did a few of the shipping returns shops for them that was soooooo easy and paid very well. And I always do their cell phone text message collection shops when I have them.
