I just started shopping for Mintel last month. They have already paid me for the shops I completed then. They have been great to work with and very helpful in adjusting to problems with shop instructions. I don't know about payment problems they may have had in the past, but their current history is great as far as I'm concerned.

I think the company is great & I like doing the shops.
I did have a scheduler (maybe independent - posts on Volition) offer me a $20 bonus for a far away shop that I completed and then 'forget' when it was time for the check.

Actually, Karen, the web link posted by Jeff 68005 takes you directly to the registration form. I just completed it myself.
http://survey.mintel.com/shoppers_survey/shopper.htm

The confusion happens when you go to the mintel.com site, instead of survey.mintel.com . Don't know why there's no link to shopper registration from their home page, but that's the way they work. Try the above link! And BTW, thanks Jeff!!

I still do quite a bit of work for this company and receive my payments in a timely fashion.

They get my vote for being an exceptional company. The schedulers value their contractors. Shops are straightforward. Pay is made on time and has always been accurate. I believe this company sets the standard...correction, exceeds the standards of many MS companies.

My all time favorite company!!! And they like trendsource just don't add new shoppers unless they need them in an area. Other companies could learn a lot from them. You input your invoice after you complete your shop and then you can see the status of the invoice ie. pending, approved and paid. You can see the date the check was mailed to you.

Two thumbs up from me as well. Mintel is easy to contact with questions, pay rate is reasonable and checks are issued quickly. You can monitor the progress of payment online. I check the website every day to see if new jobs have been added in my area.

Excellent company. Easy forms, good pay rate, quick payment, nice people. One of my favorite and most steady clients! Been with them over a year and no problems so far. Once there was a bonus they didn't add, but I emailed them and they sent me another check right away. Lovely.

I haven't done any shops for them yet, and I have a question. There is a shop in my area, but I don't see anywhere where the shop fee is listed. Am I missing something obvious?

Shopping sunny Florida and loving it!

I'm in the same situation as KMartha. I can't figure out what the pay is for these shops?

In my opinion, Mintel is a great company and the fee is always worth it. But, since I am not at liberty to discuss the fees, I suggest you send them an email and I'm sure they will answer by the next business day.

I completed a job for them today where the location had their phone # FORWRDED to the new location that was handling business. I drove to location listed, location was closed. Called again and new location gave me their address, drove there and they did not perform the service that I was sent to do because ORIGINAL location ( which was a full service location) had closed up and moved!!!! The new location only handled the BASICS of what the full service shop did.

I reported location as closed.

Does anyone have feedback if they pay for a weird(y) job like that.

Do they pay ( a lot do, a lot don't) for closed locations....
