Mintel - Just got my first invite for shops- Info?

All the threads are old. Does anyone have any current feelings about them and how/when they pay? The other question I'd like answered is how flexible are they when bad weather occurs? I'm looking at some sort of mailing shop where you mail unimportant documents to Mintel and the pay is good. I'm having a hard time understanding what actually needs to be done. Thought I'd ask for opinions about them before getting hip-deep into the requirements. TIA

Great company, just all around outstanding. Go for it without hesitation. If you have issues they are responsive and willing to help. They pay well, too.
Thank you. I've gone back to wading through the materials. The constant [if metadata= blabla] is very confusing.
I jump on everything Mintel has to offer me. I love working for them. By far my favorite company. The only problem is thy don't have enough shops to keep me happy.
The shops they have all and I do mean all pay Fair at worst and usually good to great. The company pays 2x a month like clockwork. They too are my favorite company although jobs and projects can be few and far between. They are quick and responsive. Honestly probably the best and I do mean best MSP I have ever worked for and I have worked for over 200. I also signed up for one of these new package drop off shops. Read the preview and the simplified guidelines. All there shops are easy as well.

Shopping Western NY, Northeast and Central PA, and parts of Ohio and West Virginia. Have car will travel anywhere if the monies right.
My sister did every shop she could get from them for the 2 years that she was doing MS and was always happy. They do not have much near me, so I don't have personal experience.

Based in MD, near DC
Shopping from the Carolinas to New York
Have video cam; will travel

Poor customer service? Don't get mad; get video.
Great company...shops fly, I mean fly, off the board when posted.

They pay well and they pay like clockwork. Check their ongoing recruiting page also. Sign up for what you qualify for.

Love this company and its schedulers. They pay well, their assignments are interesting, and I've yet to have anything rejected (even when I misunderstood a photo requirement). I'm sorry that their name is out there because I'd like to keep them all to myself.

Mintel is awesome — one of my two favorite MSPs (other being Informa). They pay fairy and fast. I only wish they had a bit more work around here. Also if you have never shopped with them before you’ll probably want to take your time and figure out their reporting system... it’s just a bit “different”.

Thank you, everyone, for such positive responses! Unfortunately, the crappy weather has prevented me from accepting the job. If the date gets extended, I will try to snap it.

Different? I'll say.

I just picked up my first shops with them and can't find the reports. Maybe I'm overlooking it. I e-mailed them late Friday, so hopefully they'll get back to me tomorrow. I had hoped to do a couple of the shops this weekend.
I have not worked with Mintel, can someone provide a link to their sign up page? I would love to check them out. Thanks!
Sassy, they are in the list of Official Companies (below). The website link is listed on this website, but here it is for easy reference:

Just got invited to do some shops for Mintel and I hope they are accepted. Been mystery shopping for about 5 years and this is the first time they have reached out to me (must have finally got some shops in my area) and it seems almost too good to be true. Fingers crossed that I get the assignments.

Be sure and check their open recruitment tab too. There are a couple listed there that I think most people can qualify for.
