Hi everyone!
I'd appreciate any feedback on this MS company. They are asking for some very confidential info for some new shops they're conducting, and I'm hesitant. Please let me know if you've shopped for them and how professional they are. Thanks!

Eileen

You can trust them 150%. They are absolutely fantastic. I just finished a project with them and I am so sad it is over. The contacts are great, the pay is great, the management is great. Don't think twice about giving them your information. Type as quickly as you can so you don't lose your spot.

I'm with Pam on this. We just completed the same six month project which was initially met with much skepticism on this board, but it was great fun, and lucrative to boot. The folks at Ipsos are wonderful to work with. And they even sent a Christmas card and a small gift. I would do anything for them in a heartbeat. They pay well and quickly. And if ytou get to work with Cheryl Scott and her team you are in for a treat. I've also spoken to Travis and he's pretty special too.

All the best,
Paula

I used to do any ongoing set of shops for them. Unfortuantly, they lost that account, due to the client making some economic cutbacks. I almost cried! I would love to work with them again. Hopefully, they will get another account in my area soon.

KimInAustin,
I almost cried when the assignment was cancelled also. Just the day before I got the email about the cancelled assignments, I had read a little booklet entitled "Deceived or Discouraged by Disappointment". It was a great inspiration and when I got the news the next day I was ok and truly not discouraged. Take care Jackie

I have to chime in with the same positive response about Ipsos. They have themselves together and have never left me hanging. The emails are answered promptly, they pay quickly, the schedulers always have time to speak to you, and the assignments (same project) were the most fun that I have ever completed. There are only a handful of companies that I would not hesitate to do jobs for (no worries of anything) and this one is definitely in that category. Cheryl is great!

Happy Shopping,

Angel

Hi,
Having just ended the same six month project as others have described, I would walk miles to shop for them, anytime. Cheryl Scott and her team are dreams to work with..never mind the Christmas card with a small giftcard inside. Talk about wonderful people, quick payments and caring...wow, it is rough ending this project. I am so hoping they will have another one. To be honest, I think many mystery shopper companies have something to learn from these guys, one of the few times I knew I was appreciated and not just someone who would do the shop.

I have worked for Ipsos on 2 different long-term projects since September 2003. They are absolutely wonderful. They train you over the phone, pay on time everytime, and are always happy to help you if you have a question. They are the best mystery shopping company I have worked for in my 3 years of experience.

I wanted to give two thumbs up for Ipsos. I did two of the highest paying telephone shops that I have seen in msing. I was paid quickly and today I received a $25.00 American Express Gift Card that I won as a result of completing a short survey! Thanks, Ipsos!!!
Great company!

Hi,
Yes, I saw the recruitment on the job board also. Because of all the wonderful reviews here on Volition, I just signed up with them. Hope I hear from them in the near future. It's such a breath of fresh air when all the reviews are positive

Has anyone done any shops for them in Florida?
They sound like such a really great company but I have been signed up with them for a while and have never seen any job offers.

Do they ever offer any jobs in Florida? I have never seen any, should I check their board? I usually rely on e-mail offers but haven't seen any of those either.

Roswitha, I became acquainted with I-I after responding to a board post somewhere seeking individuals with a certain qualification for a specific project early last year. I was selected to participate. They now email me with instructions when there is an opportunity for me. I don't think they really use own their job board as many Sassie MSC's do. Good luck, I hope you get on board with something.

Sylvia and Beverly - where did you see the post you are referring to??
