Schlessinger Associates

February 12, 2014 by Jessica from United States

I have been a member of that panel yrs and never got to do an in-person until last yr. Last yr I spent two hrs answering questions at their office and was paid $125. Then for the next few months I qualified for other things until they found out that I had recently done a study with them, and that got me disqualified (4 times). This yr I qualified for a $100 study. I called them two hrs before I was set to arrive and asked them how to get to the parking garage. The woman said that I should go to their office address, and the garage where they validate parking is just down the street. She said that she couldn't give me a street address for the garage. So I went to their office building and drove a little further down and there was a garage. I drove in and asked the attendant where I should park for Schlessinger Associates. He told me to park at the bottom floor. I did the study, and presented my parking card and they said it was the wrong garage and they would not validate it. I told them that I'd asked for directions and followed what they'd told me; he said that the garage I'd parked in was across the street, not down the street. He further said that in the contract they emailed me it said to use the Back Bay Garage -- the one I pulled into didn't seem to have a sign on it. I had to then ask for my Visa check card so I could leave and rush back to my car. I had to pay $28.

You do not qualify

Get used to that title a lot. 1 or 2 surveys a month and you may qualify for 2 a year.

Yep, Waste of Time

December 17, 2013 by Don from United States

Yet another one of those companies gleaning your information for free. They get you to answer all kinds of questions about yourself with the hopes of getting rewarded, but the reward never comes. Wish I had seen the other reviews before I joined.

Waste time

December 3, 2013 by Edna M from United States

Already I have been a member for several months, but almost never on my eligibility for the few times that sent surveys.

never qualified

August 17, 2013 by Jill from United States

They send out invites every once in a while but I have never qualified. the pay is really nice but once again, you have to qualify and I really don't know what kind of people they are looking for.
