Personally I don't like to do surveys at al. If I ask to be removed then I expect to be removed. That is usually not the case though that happens and with so many calls from scammers, frauds & extortionist going on its gotten ridiculous. And BTW, only some survey's are actually legal. Please use the DNC list and please respect us first, then we'll talk about respect for you!
Another PSA Employee
I am an employee of PSA as well. I can understand where some of you are coming from as I am reading your comments on here. Life is busy and hectic enough as it is without coming home or checking your cell phone only to find several missed calls or even voicemails from people like us. It takes time and effort to then do the research (on websites like this) only to find it's just us, wanting waste time that you'll never be able to get back.The truth is, this job isn't an easy one but it's a real job and most of us take it seriously. What I mean by that is we don't intentionally try to call you in the middle of preparing or eating your dinner, when you have company over, when your not feeling well or when your sleeping. I know there are several types or phone agents, I personally don't have any control over who I call, where I call, when I call or even what I am calling about.
There is a need for the type research we do, there is a whole industry dedicated to it. With your help and a few minutes of your time, together we can make changes both large and small in many different kinds of industries from what features you think needs changing on the latest technology, how to make big government programs more user friendly or even who will run for president (would be some examples).
It's simple, if this is something your not interested in that's perfectly acceptable, just say that and we wont call you again and again for the same thing. We are people to, we don't like being yelled at with profanity, so let us know instead of just hanging up or just not answering and the multiple calls a day will stop. Once last thing I don't understand, If your in the middle of dinner and you don't want to be bothered (which I get) then why would you answer the phone for a blocked number? In this day and age Caller ID is everywhere. Hopefully this lets me help you to help me to help everyone. Thanks for reading!
Got a message from PSA - they said it wasnt a sales call. For those PSA people that reply here, clearly your company is getting paid to solicit people to take the survey. In my book, that is a telemarketing call. Providing a reference number to make is sound important is misleading and while not against the law, it certainly isnt ethical.
dont bug me
Dave Lovato in Denver calling from PSA.
Didn't pick up but he did leave a message on my vm.
I got a voice mail from a Christine but the company sounded like "DSA" and they left a reference number - sounded like a research company.
Got a message on my work number last week from someone named Kathleen or Kathreen; given I'm in Canada and on the do-not-call list here--and don't answer survey questions here or from U.S. companies--they're wasting my time and theirs--assuming it's just a harmless survey, which I doubt. Who calls at 7:00 a.m. to do survey? Besides, the gal couldn't even get her company name right--she first said it was was PSA or something, and then corrected herself to PSB. Which makes me think it's a boiler-room scam with a number of angles and "companies."
The difference between a called person verbally abusing a telemarketer, and a telemarketer scheduling a callback at a 10 PM, is the latter is violating telemarketing rules while the former isn't regulated by said rules. You are breaking the law, the person who screamed at you isn't, get it?
Ok, I work for PSA interviewing. If you want them to stop calling, ask them to put you on the do not call list. The national do not call list does not matter because if people were allowed to see the national do not call list it would have to be public. Duh. If you hang up on them YOU WILL BE CALLED BACK! because, ya see, even telemarketers (although we sell NOTHING) have feelings and when you scream at them or curse them out or just hang up, they set you up for a callback, sometimes as late as 10:00 pm. The moral? Treat people like people and they will actually try to not intarrupt your dinner.
Hi, I am a PSA employee. We are a corp research company. We compile Interviews (Surveys) for different companys that want input on business to business, upgrading and or exploring. The Incentive PSA offers for Qualification and completion of the Interview is not a scam, PSA does send a check for the amount offered 7-10 weeks from the completion of the project. This is not a scam, this is a easy way to make money at the very least

Looking to set up a conference call re: cloud computing services
Re # 50016
888-871-0767 ext 223
Is on mountain time and refused to send an email.
Have them remove you from ALL their "lists".
Got a call as well from PSA. It is very annoying in thinking that we need to call back because they have a "reference" number for us!!! Will not call back - but hoping that they will stop calling me!!!
Got a call from "Michelle" from 888-871-0767, Ref #385 - called early enough that I got a voice message - PSA Interviewing.
got a call from 888-867-0767...from a chad who left a reference number..I won't call back either
A really annoying surveyor who called 2x in 2 days without leaving any details for the reason for the call. Wanted to talk to me about the pharmaceutical industry. Don't answer the phone and don't bother calling back.
888 871 0767 - says his name is Michael Lowe. Be careful as it seems this is SPAM based on whatever info they find about you on the internet. Do not answer.
Got a voicemail today from Gary at PSA with reference number 5581. Never called back after checking here first.
I thought it was the TSA calling, asking for an urgent call back. Replayed the message it still thought that. Very unethical. Don't bother calling back.
Got same call today from a "Michael Lowe"
This is a company that collects information about computer systems, and there is a "12" minute survey, just call and ask them to remove you from there data collection lists.
Comments about 8888710767 number
I received a call from Rachael Sullivan with reference number 1029 this morning when I came into the office. I deleted it but did write down her details. Maybe she will call back but it is doubtful.
Did anyone call back? hope not. probably a trap to capture the call back details to steal information about you.
trying to sell you something I assume!
"Michael Lowe" left a message for me today. Never said what the call was about. Never heard of him or PSA.
I first thought he said he was from "TSA", which of course would suggest the Transportation Safety Administration, and would make the average person curious enough to call back. But now I'm thinking he actually said "PSA".
I guess he'll be waiting a long time for my callback.
