Reality Check for Me

We read a lot about the horrible things MSCs do, how about a positive? I am very happy with the editors at Reality Check. Recently, I did two shops at retailers with names so similar they are only one letter off. Example: John's Store and Joan's Store. I did my... Continue Reading

Reality Check payment delay?

Is anyone else seeing a slower pay rate with Reality Check this month? They were among my most reliable on paying that last week of the month following a shop and now I have no pay on any June shops. Is something new going on with their... Continue Reading

Reality Check

Do they ever let you auto assign shops? I recently signed up with them and have applied for 2 different shops, both of which were assigned to another shopper. I did choose a different location for one of them, so I will be doing my first shop with them this... Continue Reading

Anyone else still owed money from Reality Check?

These guys have always been super reliable with their payments. Looking back over my spreadsheet (I track date accepted, date due, date supposed to get paid and actual date paid), they have never paid a shop from the prior month any later than the 25th of the following month.... Continue Reading

Reality Check- UPDATE

I'm soooo done being treated poorly by one of their reviewers. Snotty, mean, overly critical and tonight she tells me she had to "guess" at my receipt. Really? My pic is crystal clear, and I even attached it to her email. I need to speak to a live person. Never... Continue Reading

Reality Check Now is Grade A

Reality Check has now paid the last two months on a new pay cycle. They state that they will pay by the end of the second month after the shop(s). They are now paid for OCTOBER 2010. This is 24 days earlier than quoted. I now rate Reality Check ... Continue Reading

Reality Check

Anyone know how and how often they pay? I thought for sure they were by paypal for the end of the month following the month of the shop. They owe me quite a bit for June, so just anxiously waiting. I have only been paid for one shop I have... Continue Reading

Reality Check and their picky feedback

I am getting tired of Reality check and their picky, picky feedback. You can tell when you get a different editor/evaluator. I have had probably 8 assignments there now. I think 4 of them received feedback of just "thank you" or "excellent job." Those of course are rated 10. Now... Continue Reading

Reality Check Mystery Shopping

Has anyone else had delays in payment from Reality Check Mystery Shopping? Seems I have to email them each month I do shops for them to get paid. Their policy is supposed to be the end of the following month, but I never get until at least the 10th. I... Continue Reading

I had a shop reviewed once 15 mins after I submitted it with Reality Check, it was so fast I was worried it was some type of bounce back message about the shop, but nope, it was a fully reviewed shop and scored. (Source). November 19, 2014

I'm not sure what everyone's professional experiences are, but this was a reality check for me when I jumped into my career; most communications / feedback was through email and I had to learn to not take things personal when I received comments on my work. (Source). November 07, 2014

The client decides what information it wants on the report, not Reality Check or any MSC. (Source). November 02, 2014

I find the Reality Check approach disturbing if you really care that the client company that you're ultimately being paid by gets an accurate portrayal, as well as its employees getting honest, fair, and full feedback. (Source). October 31, 2014

Remember the guy who shot up the Omaha Von Maur store at Christmastime a few years back? Ferguson, Missouri is still in the news. It was a reality check when I visited my son's (Iowa) school to find all the classroom doors locked from the inside, I had to be buzzed into the building, and they practice "crisis drills. (Source).
