I totally understand a shop needing shoppers with specific demographics. What annoys me is when the shop posting does not list the required demographics. It is a waste of shoppers' time to NOT list those demographics. When a shop requires a male shopper but the shop posting does NOT say that, it is a guarantee that a lot of time will be wasted since most shoppers are female.
I wasted my time once asking for a shop, only to be told it required a male shopper. Next time I saw a similar posting from the same scheduler, I emailed her to ask if it again required a male shopper and she said "no." Then, when I asked for the shop, she came back and said it did require a male shopper.
Unless I am totally new to Curinos (and I am not), why hide the gender requirement? It's not like I can (or would) game the system.
digikiss opines--Curinos pays fairly well,
Bob disagrees--Curinos pays extremely well. I have completed five shops this year. the total time invested was approx. two hrs. and I was paid $175 to set at my computer. No travel time or expense, no repetitive or redundant reports and exceptional communication. Although I have never been annoyed with Curinos, they could just pester me almost to death.
All of their clients appear to require this. Apparently you missed the post about typing an addendum for all of the narratives and submitting that with the balance of the report where you just check boxes. Eay peasy solution that many of us have used for years. Recently posted for the umteenth time, btw.
Curinos Employee here! Just wanted to add that when searching for shops in Sassie there is filter that you can select to only show shops you are eligible for so your profile meets all the requirements. I am finding many shoppers don't know the filter exists. Hopefully that will save everyone time and frustration.
Those paragraphs are the very narratives that I was writing about! Type an addendum and substitute that for the handwritten paragraphs! DUH! The report will be accepted.
What we really need is the signature the client requires an actual signature so if you can type the rest and print the last page and sign it then use the typed form it will be accepted. We have been actively trying to get this client to allow for a digital signature for years and they are just unwilling to accept that even 99% of mortgage companies minus the final escrow signing all accept electronic signatures so I get your frustration!
