I would imagine you get paid. This is an awesome company to work for and their forms are simple and straightforward plus they pay really quickly.

I have received 3 (timely) payments from them and I received my third from them today. They have surprisingly high paying jobs for very little effort. ( i chose many of their drop box audits, very easy to complete and reuired very little effort other than driving to the locations)

Several of my locations did not HAVE the drop box, but Mintel paid me for them anyways, for my time and effort.

I really like them and they also paid me for a closed location when I drove there and found the shop had closed up, I just submitted the invoice and they did pay.

I put them WAY up there. I really like to do shops for them, they are great

Oh, and they pay 3, count em 3 times a month!!!!

I second Selena's comments. I have worked for them for about 8 years and have nothing but good comments. The schedulers are polite, friendly and always respond quickly. I too have been paid for a closed location. I only wish they had more shops in my area!

This is my second post regarding Mintel. I have now shopped for them close to two years and truly look forward to their job postings. The digital photo shops are easy and pay well. There can be out of pocket expenses but Mintel reimburses quickly.

Melanie has always been responsive and personable during our conversations. I'm glad to be on board with them.

I love this company. They pay quickly and I had just assigned myself one shop and was called by Gelson and asked if I could pick up two more in my area. I was afraid I would not meet all of the dead lines and he extended them for me with no problem. Schedulers are very nice and respond quickly to emails. Wish more companies were this good to work for!

Does anyone have a link to their shopper agreement? I looked through several pages and can't seem to find it. I need to figure out how many hours I have to submit the report and if I can do a shop on the due date.

Thanks!

Agree. Mintel is a well organized company. The schedulers are professional and quick to respond to issues. Payment is quick and reports are not complicated. I, too, wish more companies were this well managed.

Love them. I've done a few assignments for them, and have consistently had wonderful, timely communications. I can't quite put my finger on it, but something about Mintel is just so "user-friendly." The prompt payment is nice, too!

Logged in no problem. Probably my favorite company just because many of there assignments are not just mystery shops. Some of the friendliest employees.
