Guest 28 Thanks for your article.
I understand very well that you quited doing mystery shopping because of lousy salary. I still do some mysteryshopping but I am constantly telling people to ask for better compensations. I started my Mystery Shopping blog few months ago. I have been doing it for over 10 years.
There is no free lunch as the saying goes. The high and dining shops require extensive narratives as stated above. They also require observations, timings and details that make the experience a little more than simply going in, eating and leaving.
If you do a really high end shop, the narrative requires a detail of the entire experience in terms of who delivered the bread, who cleaned the crumbs, if the water was refilled, at what intervals and by whom. The biggest challenge is reading name tag in dark dining areas and recording the information without being seen.
The company asked you to go to the rest room several times to make notes and send your partner in alternating trips to do the same. If thee is a delay in some set time point, you are asked the reason for the delay.
How should you know the reason for a delay in the payment process for a car 3 cars in front of you?
The shops also require you enter the times in and out two times, have warnings about managers watching cameras to be sure you are sitting there for 15 minutes and also cameras to check that you shopped alone.
If the company decides you did not time properly or explain in enough detail the report can be rejected and you are out the out of pocket expense.
There are also time perimeters and if the location's clock does not match your watch and standard time- and believe me- I have shoppped fast food places where the time on the receipt is off by one hour- especially when the time changes- you risk not being paid.
The money you put out for food that you may not even eat as the company dictates exactly what must be ordered at each of the order points is in limbo until you get paid- which can be weeks in the future. You are to remain unobserved despite the fact that you go thru the drive thru and then eat inside within a period of 15 minutes or so.
I was taken off a fast food shop recently because the manager IDed me. Well, I had been there twice in the past and I was the only white person who ever went into the place.
The rest room was locked so I had to ask for the key each time and well, they figured it out. That did not take Sherlock Holmes to investigate!
