They are still around. Picked up a grocery store that I used to do regularly with a different MSP who paid $25 + $2 and occasional nice bonuses. Sinclair pays $6 + $5 for essentially the same shop... needless to say -- I haven't done a shop yet for them... and they call constantly. I told them once they can bonus it to get it within the realm of what I used to do it for, I'll bite -- but it hasn't happened yet, so they must have plenty of shoppers.
I have never found a shop worth doing on that site, but maybe they don't have much stuff in my area. All I've ever seen is a bank shop that pays way too little, and a local car wash company that pays you $6 with no reimbursement when the cheapest service at that place is almost $20. It rapidly moved down to the "I'll check it if I'm bored and can't find anything else to do" section of the list.
I have a question regarding their bank client. Let's say I am interested, but need more details....the website does NOT give any further details other than the fee and dates. How am I to know if it's a new account opening or current account holder??? Or another scenario?? Would I have to email the scheduler each and every time?? Or if I hit the "I'm Interested" button, will I get more info?? I've been hesitant to click that button for fear I'd be assigned without having enough info to make up my mind first. Thanks in advance!
Haven’t seen their pizza shops in almost a year now. The scheduler said the shop locations in my state are franchised and the locations have not opted in again yet. Call me crazy, but it’s my favorite pizza!
They have been sending emails for a new shop recently.
They're still there. Got a call yesterday for a grocery shop. Told the scheduler I couldn't do it for the lowered fee and greater requirements. She added a few $. Still wasn't even close to worth it. She couldn't understand that lowering fees and increasing requirements was a disincentive. "Offered" to remove me from their database. /smh
Sinclair sidenote: Don't they have an app? I keep seeing it mentioned in some of the briefings but a search on their site as well as the Apple app store doesn't turn anything up. Does anyone know what it is, if it exists?
I did a job for them last month reviewing apps. (It was posted so I don't feel that is a violation) I have a $260.00 check sitting here for basically the easiest "job" I have done to date. I am hoping they have more of this type of work because I am IN! I came upon the job at the tail end of it, so that was disappointing.
I just finished a whole slew of shops with Sinclair for the same client. Albeit there was some driving, but it was one of the best shops ever!!!! I wish it was a regular rotation. Mine wasn't posted either.
I have found Gina to be wonderful; organized, responsive and knowledgeable. I have recently had contact with Sergio and Felecia, who appear to possibly be newer. They did not exhibit any of the qualities I mentioned Gina has..... I will definitely be thinking twice about taking a project with these schedulers in the future.
