Has anyone shopped for Creative Image Associates? Did they pay on time? Is it a company that you would shop for again?

They have postings on the MSPA site. They replied to my request by sending an email with an attachment including an application and form letter. I haven't opened the attachment yet, since I hadn't heard of this company before.

CIA is one of my favorite companies. They have plenty of work in my area. They are exceptionally friendly and pay within 30 days. At the beginning of each month they send me my assignments which are usually due towards the end of the month.

I have worked for Creative Image since last summer. They are great to work with. They pay like clockwork and are quick to get back to you when you have a question. I highly recommend them

Does anyone know how to sign up with this company through the website? For the life of me I couldn't find an application link.

Rachael,

I went into the contacts link and e-mailed them directly inquiring about signing up. I received a response within ten minutes.

Give it a try

CIA is one of my favorite companies to work with. Kate is wonderful, answers emails faster than lightning! They have a very professional book for their guidelines, and Kate is quick to give you ideas to make your shop successful. They pay quickly! They are A+ in my book!!

I would like to bump this post up. I shop for Kate in the Treasure Coast area. She is in desperate need of shoppers around here and has posted today with jobs available. I can tell you that she is one of the best schedulers I have EVER worked with and Creative Image pay quickly and fairly. I wouldn't take the shops if they weren't worth my while! I hope anyone in this area will contact her; she needs dependable shoppers!

Another vote for Creative Image Associates. Their direction booklet is packed with tips to make the shops easier and keep you from getting made. I enjoyed meeting Kate, my scheduler, at the Florida conference. The company has a very personal and organized presence. I've been 100% pleased with pay, directions, and contact. I highly recommend this company.

Kate is great to work for. She also does some of the mystery shops herself, so she knows what we go through in "the field".
Good pay, good company and a great scheduler.

This is a wodnerful company to work for. They explain everything early, the pay is very well in line with the work required, and Kate is wonderful. As others have mentioned, you get your assignments and have a few weeks to complete them. I love working with CIA.

I have to agree with most of the posts so far. Initially, CIA did not have shops in my area. I met Kate at the Orlando conference and she contacted me a few weeks later about a new client in my area. I now have a new contact at CIA - Jennifer, and she is just as great to work with. I have enjoyed the shops I've done for CIA (only 2 months worth) and look forward to more shops with this company. They are available - phone or email - you have a realistic time frame for completing shops, and the pay is reasonable and paid in a timely manner. Plus, they reimburse mileage.

I have done one shop for CIA 'so far'. Jennifer, my CIA contact, has been great to work with. She responds to emails quickly and provides good feeback when asked.

The reports aren't bad at all if you follow their example.

I hope to do more shops for them in the future.

LOVE CIA! They pay like clockwork, give you your assignments at the first of the month so you can schedule your month. Pay mileage, and my scheduler Jen is fantastic!

They are awesome. They give you an e-mail at the beginning of the month, plenty of time to complete an assignment. Most of all, they are very helpful when you have a question.

Please add my Kudos to CIA! The scheduler I work with is wonderful about responding quickly to questions, and they pay quickly. I have been shopping for them since September, and I hope to continue to do so.

I've done quite a few shops for them this months. I'm not sure about payment (it's not due yet), but Leslie is great to work with. She responds to all questions quickly and I've never had to wait more than a few hours to get an answer.

I'd work for them again in a heartbeat.
