Does Cirrus EVER pay it's shoppers?

In March, (3/8, 3/19. and 3/20) I did five telephone jobs for Cirrus. I thought it was somewhat strange because I was asked to log on using someone else's user ID and password. I did the five jobs per the instructions. I forgot this antiquated company requires an invoice at the end of each month, so I did not get mine sent in until April 7. Supposedly, the company was going to pay me between Aug 5-7. WHERE IS MY MONEY CIRRUS? Geez, I did these jobs over five months ago!

I was paid this Monday for a job I did at the end of April which was timely based on their pay schedule.
Yes, here's the schedule: April: processed last day of July, hits PayPal 5-7 day later. There might be a better contact to use, but here is one... questions@cirrusmktg.com
I feel your pain. I just sent an email this morning asking if they sent my payment to paypal yet and no response.
It is surprising people still shop for this company after all the negative posts. I had only to read a single thread a few years back to decide to avoid Cirrus like the plague.
I have always been paid by this company. However, I have had to chase down payments on more than one occasion. I have always had immediate results by contacting the owner, Monnie Howard: Mhoward@cirrusmktg.com.

Hard work builds character and homework is good for your soul.
That is just horrible! I did one shop for them last year and it took almost 3 months to get paid. I will never do another shop for them!!!
They took 5.5 months to pay me...they pay but it took forever and I had to remind them twice.
I don't mind if it takes 3 months, but I absolutely will not chase payment twice. Once and I'm out. Deactivated, whatever. I have enough to remember without having to remember that.

I enjoy awkward questions and uncomfortable silences. This gas station pavement is $%^@*#& hot.
I have never had to remind them.

But once I submit my invoice, I just figure 6 months. Then I'm pleasantly surprised when it arrives in 5.5 ( smiling smiley )

And, I've never...ever....ever had a MSC NOT pay me. Even when Goodman was going out of business, and they took like *9 months* to pay...I still got paid. Without chasing it down. I just followed posts about how they were having issues. Not only did I get paid, but I also got $20 extra for each shop I did. It ended up being a windfall of over a grand.

So, I do shops for Cirrus once in a while. It's nice to know that money is coming, even if it's coming later than I would like....
When I first started doing mystery shopping in 2013, I did a few of their shops. On the first apartment shop they told me I talked too much and would not pay me. On the second shop they told me I didn't talk enough. Again they refused to pay. I never did another shop for them again. They also wanted you to call the apartment complex 12 times to try and get the target sales person. If the target did not answer they wanted you to just hang up. There's this thing called "Caller ID". I did not want the cops showing up at my door. LOL
Was that Freeman? I don't remember a Goodman.

@JASFLALMT....hmmmm. I think it was Goodman Freeman??? Now I can't remember. Yes, it was Freeman. IDK how I got "Goodman" out of it. :shrug:

Just googled....Freeman Group. Sorry about the wrong info there smiling smiley
It's okay, it's good to put negative experiences into the past and not dwell on them smiling smiley I did the same with Franchise Compliance when they went under (I did NOT get paid...over $200 they owed me). I rarely think about it now.
There was a mystery shopping company called Goodwin Hospitality that went out of business some time back. I remember doing food and beverage shops for them.That's probably who you were thinking of.

No, Goodwin changed their name to 360 Intel. They did not go out of business.
Correct, and they are on the iSecretShop platform.
I enjoyed the furniture shop. The pay was good. I also did some storage audits. I did not like going into stalker mode for my money.
