I strongly recommend applying to this MSC. I have been contracted for several yrs. and state most absolutely they are TOP SHELF. Response to inquiries is rapid and pay is at the pinnacle of the spectrum. Last week, I completed six web inquiries, with a total time of approx. 90 minutesr and was paid $250. In addition, I flubbed one of the jobs, but the main editor, Frank, stepped in and salvaged the work.
In this age of low fees and non-communicative MSCs, Curinos is an oasis in the vast desert of this business.
I could not agree more. This is a GREAT outfit to work with. And, if you need parking fees for center city locations, contact them to ask. In my experience the answer is almost alway yes, unless it is too early in the cycle of shops for them to cover that. If so, watch those shops "age" thru the calendar quarter and then make another offer.

I work with them often and regularly, even as far back during their Informa days.
They're a pleasure to work with, and have spoken to many of their PM's and directors over the years. Never had an issue; professional, transparent, fair and competitive fees, guidelines that are straightforward without anything crazy tedious work, etc.
Also, if I recall, a couple of the Curinos folks are active forum members too! Shoutout to y'all.

It's odd but I've never done a shop for them. I received an email from an independent scheduler and decided to take two highly bonused shops thanks to Shopper Bob and this post. I was thinking about just deleting the email as usual but decided to try out a new company based on everyone's glowing review!
So, thanks everyone! I hope my experience is as great as yours has been.
Do not recommend. Took a shop with them and sent them tons of personal financial info (required for shop) and never got paid. I've been doing this for over 10 years now and there's a handful of companies I won't work with (most are super easy) and this is one.
Please reach out to me firstname.lastname@example.org I process our shopper payment files weekly and if you have not been paid there are a few reasons:
1. You have not linked your W-9 with JobSlinger
2. Your email address that is registered with Sassie wasn't linked to your bank as a way to receive Zelle payments
3. Your bank does not offer Zelle and rejected the payment, in which case it will be returned to us and we will reach out to find and alternative way to pay you by check or ACH.
