In most cases calls are made randomly to landlines or mobile numbers across Australia. In some cases when we call mobiles we will first need to check if you live in the area in which a given survey is being conducted.
While none of our surveys are compulsory, our clients and ourselves appreciate your participation. In order to ensure that our surveys are representative, McNair yellowSquares is permitted to call both silent numbers and numbers that are on the Do Not Call Register. However, you may request not to be called by us.
Note that for most surveys the Government require us to make several attempts to call your number. From time to time the system may mistakenly hang up on you. This may occur during peak interviewing times. We apologise for any inconvenience.
All telephone surveys conducted by McNair yellowSquares may be monitored or recorded for training and quality control purposes. Respondents have the option to discontinue the survey at any time.

Always hang up on unrecognizable callers. This one is persistent and a bloody nuisance of an evening. I am never interested in cold callers.
If you answer, you'll hear it put you on hold while it connects you to an operator. It's unwanted spam. lots of calls from this number (02) 8287 0802 i havent answered and now have blocked it see what happens I always check then block if it’s a scam or survey. They rang after 8pm thurs.
What a load of rubbish.
Keep getting several calls a day but mostly around tea time. No-one speaks. It is scary - like a stalker is after you. Caller: McNair
How do you these fwits get my personal info when I am on the DO NOT CALL register and have reported them before, and will gain and again and again until they realise that my privacy is not theirs. FCKM

Called and didn’t leave a message I let the call ring out. It didn’t leave a message Sick of these calls. STOP CALLING AND LEAVE US ALONE! Caller: (02) 8287 0802
They called me in the afternoon, I didn’t answer, I blocked their number.
Somehow they called again at 19:30 and left a message that went for 2 mins of breathing and heaps of background noise of workers on the phone talking
Caller: (02) 8287 0802
They call at 7 pm and again at 12.52am. I did not pick up and do not appreciate been woken up in the middle of the night!
Ive gotten so many calls from this number, months and months on end. Counted 25 calls in one day. I have answered a few times and told them im not interested and take me off their register but they continue to call. One particular night it was 8:30 pm when i got a call. Im just annoyed that they call outside of business hours or at all. Seems you can't have your privacy, eat your dinner , attend to a sick loved one. I have had a 2 second pause before anyone speaks. One time it sounded like a call centre and apparently about which power provider im with. They then tell me to stay by my phone after they hang up and wait until they call back, by this time its a private number. Why do they need to do this? In any case i didnt wait because i had to get to the doctors and in the waiting room they called me back from 02 area code. The person on the other end was agitated and having a go at me after already being told im busy and cant talk. Id already indulged them with my time on the first call. I got another 5 calls this particular day. What i don't get is the phone number starting 8287...im in south australia and my number begins with the same digits and you think its local but then theres the 02 added in front ( greater Sydney area code) . What's with this bull sh*te. I cant even block their number on my phone. usual f*wits. I never answer unknown calls - just block them Caller: (02) 8287 0802
Called 3 times usually after 6.00pm, left no message. I have now blocked the number. I am also on 'Do Not Call', but calls keep coming through!
Saturday night at 10.02pm.....Really??? They keep calling but don't say anything. Just send me straight to voicemail. I try give them a call back and it send me to their voice message!! I'm f*cking sick of it.

Hang up, it’s a scam. When I get these calls I just don’t say anything, and they hang up.
