This kind of scares me. They pay for all contracted work 60 days after the
completion of the project. That is a long time to have to wait to get paid.

I believe the reason for the long wait is because Infoco has to get paid by the client which takes about 6 weeks. You don't get paid until they get paid. It is pretty long though.

I think it would be hard to work for someone and wait 60 days to be paid anything at all. Plus, it is commission-based, right?

Just some info regarding waiting for commissions....
From my experience as an employment recruiter, generally once a job offeris made anda new hire starts working, the customer has between30-60 days to pay the company (many companies have a certain amount of agreed upon time to keep or replace a new hire based on performance) and then it's generally another 2 weeks before the recruiter sees any commission. If anyone is thinking about this kind of job, it's best if you have a little money in the bank ahead of time to tide you over or another hourly paid job to work around until the commissions start rolling in.

For me, it's very worth it to hang in there on this one because it's not like regular employment recruiting - it's finding people who will participate in paid research panels; not just spending countless hoursresume mining, calling and emailing job applicants, trying to convince companies to interview candidates and all the new hire responsibilites to deal with.

With that said, this recruiting job with InfoCo will allow for a higher volume of recruits, plus faster turnaround of payment from clients = more frequent commissions.

Anyways, how hard is it going to be to find people who are willing to participate in paid research panels, most of which pay $50-200 for a couple of hours? Everyone is looking to make a few extra bucks nowadays thanks to gas prices and the like!



Hope I haven't lost anyone there - sorry if I was rambling.

Tess

yep, heard back, got the test, did the survey even interviewed but didn't get selected. There were not looking for many people though...
At least I don't think. Very nice people though. Mary is wonderful. Hopefully in the future when there is another open position I will apply again....

If anyone has recently submitted the test, be patient as it takes at least a week tograde and then they email you asking for a time to interview via telephone. That was my experience.
