Does not pay

May 24, 2022 by Thomas from United States

Will have you sit through an hour plus interview with a client and then never pay up. Then they ignore all attempts to contact them.

Focus group

February 7, 2022 by Cheryl from United States

I did my first focus group via zoom. It was a great experience and I look forward to the next opportunity. Carol was great! Thanks for the opportunity.

Over Promises, under delivers, 48 months and nothing

October 19, 2021 by kris from United States

Hagen/Sinclair proved to be a Total waste of time, 48 months and close to 100 "offers" and I actualized nothing. I even sent feedback years 2, onwards that there wasn't any change and never a reply. I kept my profile up to date. I think Hagen/Sinclair draws participants with big payout offers, hundreds of dollars for each opportunity, just to pad the member base to appear more attractive to potential clients. If the clients read reviews, they should question how large the member base really is.
