Has anyone shopped for Cirrus Marketing

I am curious for those that have shopped for Cirrus Marketing, how was your experience? Did they pay on time? Out of all the companies I have worked with, this is the only company that I have worked with that takes months to pay. Specifically, they seem to pay quarterly whereas most others pay seem to pay between 2 weeks-45 days.

It is true this company takes a long time to pay. I have worked for them twice, one took 3 months, and the other we both missed, so that one took a year. They do pay well better than others for some shops.
Hi sheshops00. I no longer shop for them due to to their payment practices. Not only do they take 4 months to pay, I had to stalk them like a crazy ex wife.

Since there are nearly 200 legitimate MS companies, there is no need to do business with those that make you wonder if you will ever get paid., IMHO.

The only reason I did these 2 shops was because the pay was better than most when bonused. I just don't know if I will do anymore for them if, like others have mentioned they've had to hound them on top of their stated basically quarterly pay out. No one should have to do that. All of the other companies I shop for pay much sooner and only once did I have to follow up with one company and was promptly paid after that.
That's exactly why they are on my MSC 10-ft pole list.

I don't like long pay but will do shops as long as I know it will take so long going in and the pay is good for the work and wait time on pay. What I will not do is work for people where I have to hound for pay when they do not pay per agreed upon terms be it 10 days or 4 months. A good example is HS brands which can be 90 to 120 days after shop is performed. However it is their stated terms and you don't have to hound to get paid as they pay on time per their terms. I don't do many shops but will do shops that are easy and pay fair and don't envolve more than $25 in reimbursement.

Shopping Western NY, Northeast and Central PA, and parts of Ohio and West Virginia. Have car will travel anywhere if the monies right.
I believe I did one phone shop for them and was assigned on my login. However, I was told to submit the report using a different login. I thought this was kind of hinky and never got paid, Surprise!

They require that you submit a separate invoice to get paid and a lot of people think that filling out the shoplog is all they have to do. They require a separate invoice page for every month in addition to the sassie report.
I never did a separate invoice page. How is that done? Where do I find this invoice page I need to fill in? I tried searching under the "Help" tab and got nothing.
You create an invoice and submit it. I did a simple one in Excel.

Okay so it's not one that is in the Sassie system. How do I submit it, just e-mail it to their helpdesk?
I don't remember. I haven't shopped for them in a long time. Ask your scheduler.
