I've applied for 23 shops with Cirrus in the past 3 weeks. None of them has been assigned to me but the scheduler keeps reposting them. When I check my apps on Sassie, they've all disappeared but they're still on the Job Board. Why post shops if they aren't accepting applications?
When I run into SASSIE wonkiness I email the account manager.
I have developed great relationships with their primary AM as well as the owner. Issues or questions are always addressed reasonably quickly, and they throw a few extra projects my way each year that never show up on the Job Board.
Cirrus is typically my #1 vendor every year, and recently the bonuses have been huge. For the amount of money they pay me I'm ok with industry-worst payout periods (which are now a couple of weeks quicker it would seem) and having to occasionally remind them of their accounts payable balance with me.
Cool opines--For the amount of money they pay me I'm ok with industry-worst payout periods (which are now a couple of weeks quicker it would seem)
Bob agrees--As would I.
Cool adds--and having to occasionally remind them of their accounts payable balance with me.
Bob's thought on that subject--I have never possessed, do not currently nor foresee I will ever have the slightest desire to plead for what is rightfully mine. I do respect, however, the old adage that concisely states: "to each his/her own."
People have complained that at times Cirrus had to be chased. Once payment was more than 3.5 months out from the close of the month in question I would send a copy of my invoice to the owner. Funds would usually arrive within a couple of days.
As previously referenced, they are now paying inside 3 months, and consistently.
I only hope the bonuses remain big once I'm back in rotation. The pay for the past 6 months has raised my baseline with them.
