Insula Research Acquired by Mystery Researchers

Has anyone else received an email about Insula Research being acquired by Mystery Researchers? I received one today, and it linked to this release by Mystery Researchers: http://www.mysteryresearchers.com/news/2014/8/12/mystery-researchers-acquires-insula-research I don't see any information in the Insula website about this. This would be disappointing, as Insula has always been great to work... Continue Reading

Insula - bun substitute question

I have done several menu board shops with the bun substitute question. Very few employees know whether the new buns are allowed to be substituted. When they do say "yes," I have not found one who knows whether there is an upcharge or not. It's such a pointless exercise in... Continue Reading

Got caught w/Insula shops

Ok so I just did a fast food audit with Insula. I ordered my required purchase and began taking the pictures. The cashier said, "oh you want to take my picture?" through the speaker... I didn't know they could see me. How embarrassing... Has anyone else had this experience?... Continue Reading

Insula Menuboard Price Audits

Is anyone else doing these? I cannot get the silly form to submit. It doesn't like my 1.99 Strawberry Lemonade and it doesn't like it blank either. *********************************************************************************************** Insula support is a class act! They responded and fixed the problem within 2 hours. The scheduler even tried to duplicate my issues... Continue Reading

Insula-Menu Collection shops

Hey everyone, I just looked at these menu collection shops in my area. You have to take 3 photos of the drive-thru menu board and then they want you to list the price of every item on the menu, they state between 78-89 items. This seems like a lot of work for... Continue Reading

Insula Research WTF????!!!!!!

Never had this one happen before. Last year (well 2010) I didn't do much for Insula. I was paid $650 by them. However they reported that I was paid $65,000. I got a letter from the IRS today. It seems I owe them $29,000.... Continue Reading

Insula calls me on the phone, assigns me a fast food shop without my permission, and then tells me that I'm late, threatening to remove me from the database for lack of timely completion; and I've never even worked with them yet.

I suddenly receive a phone call from Insula Research which interrupts my busy day. The shop recruiter doesn't even speak understandable english, nor can he adequately understand me. Approximately one-half of every sentence is incommunicable both ways. He then assigns me a fast food shop that needs... Continue Reading
