Hello,

Is there an update on this company?

The last shop I did for them was in 2008 when Antonio from CTC was scheduling. Now it seems they are back to scheduling themselves.

Thanks!

Guy, I shop regularly for New Image Marketing. They pay "like clockwork," and the scheduler, Dawn, is very helpful.

I find Dawn very helpful, and she's called me directly when they have had problems and needed someone to reshop.

My current problem is that they only have one store in my town. I try to schedule it when Dawn announces that she is scheduling, but I can't seem to get it. There is only one store in my town, and I am happy, willing, and able to shop it, however they are constantly sending out blasts trying to get more MSPA, etc shoppers to sign up.

I would think that one or two shoppers is plenty considering there is one store that is shopped. I don't like that I can never seem to self schedule anymore but that they keep putting out blasts to hire and call me if someone else screws up.

Very few shops in my area, too which is a total shame! They pay fast, Dawn is SUPER, and this company would be my favorite if they had more jobs around here.

I see one shop in my area; it pays $12, a small purchase is required, you have to pass a test and the report seems lengthy. I can understand why two shoppers have cancelled out. I find it difficult to pull out of my driveway for $20-25 let alone the time involved for testing and reporting.

If it's for a convenience store, don't worry about taking it. The test took maybe 2 minutes (total common sense, just to make sure you read the extremely clear instructions), the assignment takes about 5 minutes, reporting takes another 2-3 (you tab to the choice, hit enter, no narrative involved), and pay is received timely in 2 weeks. A very easy $12. I use them as fillers as I am driving by and the purchase is something that I would pick up as a snack anyway. I'm not pulling out of my driveway for only $12, rather combining it with other assignments for which I am going that way anyway and supplementing what I am already planning to earn. IMHO the fee is well worth the amount of work involved.

Those convenience store jobs were great. I only got to do them for a few months before they quit shopping my state. I was sad they were gone.

Hello Again,

Any new updates? I am really tempted so I took the certification test for the clients in MA. The only issue is now they are reveal shops which I am not fond of.

I did a ton of work for them between 2006 and 2008.

The scheduler now is Deana Moore.

Thanks in advance.

I've done several jobs for them. They pay on time and are flexible on scheduling. I will happily do any work they have in my area.
