If you’ve ever had a horrible experience at a store, or a wonderful experience at a restaurant, you may have wished you could have told the owner of the store to let them know exactly what was going on.
The good news is – there are people who do exactly that! This is called Mystery Shopping.
Mystery Shopping is where you get hired to go into a store/restaurant/etc. and complete a shopping experience, and then tell the mystery shopping company about your experience. It’s called Mystery Shopping because you don’t tell the store or restaurants who you are, or what you are doing. It’s completely undercover. The company will tell you where to go, what to do, and what to watch out for.
What are some things you could be doing? Well, at a restaurant shop, you would probably note how long it takes from the time you ordered to get your meals. Did you get everything you asked for? Did they server check back with you? You would have to report things like that. When you get back from a shop, you will usually fill out a survey (which you can see before you go so you know what to look out for), and then usually give them your receipt as proof you were there.
With Mystery Shopping you usually get a free meal (if a restaurant shop) or product (at a retail location). Sometimes you also get paid on top of it, depending on how complicated the shop is.
It’s a lot of fun, and you can make sure that retail stores and restaurants are treating their customers like they should be.
Here is a list of mystery shopping companies you can join, all for free.
Remember…you should NEVER pay for a list of mystery shopping sites. These companies are paying you!Here are some similar posts you may be interested in:
