Has anyone submitted an application to Goodwin and also heard back from them? If so how long did it take? TIA

I think I was approved as a shopper within the week I applied.

Keep careful records of when you're to be paid, follow up diligently if you're due a payment. They pay well but like to forget payments.

They pay by Paypal, between the 10th-15th, two months after the shop.

They have been paying like 1 month faster lately. I enjoy working for them and didn't take long to be approve when I first applied -- I think so long ago.

Shopping Western NY, Northeast and Central PA, and parts of Ohio and West Virginia. Have car will travel anywhere if the monies right.
I've never had issues with them regarding pay; however, this is another MSC that doesn't appear to provide any feedback when you turn in an acceptable report. This doesn't bother me because I've been paid for all my shops for them so far, but just so you're aware.

Shopping the Greater Denver Area, Colorado Springs and in-between in Colorado. 29 year old male and willing to travel! Badged for Denver International Airport.
LOVE this company! Not for the maybe typical reasons, but I have enjoyed have a nice little ice cream shop / break during a hectic day!
The only time you hear back according to them no personal experience is within 72 hours if their needs clarification on something or their is a problem. I have done many shops never got contacted so don't know. But site has a internal rating which only they know.

I like this company too, though I would never say that they pay well. I take some of their shops because I like the restaurant or the product but usually, after reimbursement, the pay is only ~$5, if there's any money left at all.
Come to think of it, I have done a number of shops for this MSC but somehow stopped doing any for them after signing up with other MSCs. I recall having had an issue with much delayed payment for a number of successful shops. They paid eventually but they were upset that I asked. What I did not like was being referred to someone else and that someone else pointed to another. Eventually, I was not the only one upset.
I have been getting paid in about a month. A few years ago, I never got paid until I reminded them. Then they cleaned up their act. In my area, they tend to have flat fee food shops (no reimbursement), but if I want a burger or a snack and it is convenient, I do them.

Shopping Southeast Pennsylvania, Delaware above the canal, and southwestern NJ since 2008
I have applied with them but never heard back from them. Followed all the instructions on the application page. Was wondering if they are worth a follow up

I would say yes. At one time, they did not pay timely and getting paid required contacting them. I did not accept jobs at that time. They've improved and now pay according to their stated terms. Most assignments don't pay much - or reimburse much - but they have a few interesting clients and they make good fillers in my schedule.

Well I am not going to beg anyone to respond to my application.

They gave time to spam job boards. I guess they have to many shoppers to worry about communication with new applicants.

@isaiah58, as I remember, I applied through one of their sites and it was a bust, but somehow I found the application form through Prophet, and that's where I got accepted. Just FYI.

They don't pay well, but they do have some shops that I like to do regardless of the fee. I also find that they're really nice.
It may take forever. My daughter sent it to them and they had never reply back to her.

Shopping Eastern Pennsylvania and parts of NJ, since 2009
I notify them when I am going to do airport circuits. For instance I am at the airport next Saturday doing some other shops. I notified my GA scheduler and got an airport shop location assigned. I will do it during my lunch break time that day. I agree they have become more reliable meeting the payment schedule terms.
