Monterey Mystery Shopping

Hello all. I've noticed lately that the Monterey Mystery Shopping job board has been bone dry...and it's a shame, because I really liked working with these guys. They're one of the only MSPs I've found that always answer the phone, offer to extend due dates for you, etc. Does anyone know... Continue Reading

Can anyone help with this Monterey report?

Under the section that says "Followup", the directions are clear: answer these questions NO and submit your report. So I answer the questions all with "No", hit submit, and they come up as the equivalents of "Ooops" -- red boxes around them, demanding the first and last name of... Continue Reading

Horrible Experience with Monterey

I have done multiple high end car shops for this company. Last October, I did a $30 motorcycle shop and a $30 car shop for them in Northern Ca. By February of 2015, I had yet to be paid. I contacted Shannon who said, "You did not do those assignments... Continue Reading

monterey mystery shopping (Deactivation?)

they deactivate since they said that tried to contact me since they had to edit my shops. I had no emails or phone calls from them asking for any information. I would have made any corrections that they would have wanted to made. Then some manager named... Continue Reading

Monterey Bay Aquarium

Anyone have experience doing this shop? This is my first shop with this MSC. I'm hoping it's not as complicated and tiring as the IKEA shop was (like is it closer to doing a grocery store, multi-department shop?). I signed up for it to do something fun... Continue Reading

Monterey problems

Anyone else having trouble reaching Monterey today (July 9)? I can't log into their web site with my regular username and password. Their system of sending the same if you're forgotten yours isn't working, and they haven't answered a recent phone call and email. I can understand if one or... Continue Reading

I Recommend Monterey Mystery Shopping

When I perform shops for Monterey the instructions are clear, the forms are coherent, the pay is reasonable AND they always pay on time. I get an email telling me what date funds will be in my PayPal account and what shops are being paid for. Wish all... Continue Reading

What's Up With Monterey?

Anybody know what's up with this company? I did a number of car shops with them last year, all sorts of brands (edited for ICA violation.) and found them very easy to work with. Lately, however, like the past two or three months, all I see on their job boards are a... Continue Reading

Beware of Monterey Mystery Shopping, BestMark and Marketforce

Stay away from these companies. They are frauds. They require a lengthy shop, then bullshit you that the form "needs more information" but they refuse to tell you what is missing. That was Monterey. Bestmark unilaterally withholds payment after the work was done and the form was sent. They are frauds.... Continue Reading

Monterey any comments?

Beware of Monterey Mystery Shopping

Be very wary about accepting mystery shopping assignments from this company. They will not fully reimburse shoppers for required out-of-pocket expenses. I have done well over 100 shops for various companies and this is the first time the company failed to reimburse for legitimate, documented expenses. Even... Continue Reading
