Dan St Pierre and Goodwin Associates

I must say I am shocked. I have shopped for this company for over 6-7 years, and only had one report returned to me, and rejected because I didn't follow the timeline. It was for campusfeedback. I wrote to another scheduler and I was reinstated, b/c she had seen... Continue Reading

Goodwin Name Change

I received an email this morning announcing that, effective 4/1, Goodwin and its brands (Customer Prophet, Campus Feedback, Goodwin, etc.) will be known as "360 Intel". One automatically thinks that the '360' tag in the new name refers to an all encompassing view of their clients' operations, but... Continue Reading

Goodwin Hospitality (via ISS)?

Hello, Reviews for them on Yelp and Google are HORRIBLE. They say that they find tiny little things to reject shops for and don't pay. However, they have quite a few bowling shops in my area that I thought would make a fun date night for my boyfriend and I... Continue Reading

Goodwin & Associates single date shops

Can someone tell me if they ever get this problem solved; A single day is specified for a shop. One applies for the shop using that specific date in the request, as required. One gets a message saying one can't apply for that (very specific) date because another shopper has completed... Continue Reading

Did Goodwin Lose Many Clients?

I have not seen many of the Goodwin Casual/Quick Food Client shops on the boards for January. Did anyone else notice this? Did they lose contracts? I am sure missing the simple and easy lunch shops I normally do during my working day.... Continue Reading

Goodwin Phone Shops

Hello! Has anyone done the Goodwin / ISS bowling phone shops? I'm just curious if they are simple or a PITA. They have had a lot posted for awhile. I'm in my second month of shopping and getting my feet under me now. Looking to try some new things.... Continue Reading

Dropped from a Campus Feedback/Goodwin Hospitality telephone shop

Hello all, A bit of background first: I have been lurking on this Forum and gaining incredible advice for ~ a year and a half. Thank you all. I have been mystery shopper for two years. I have completed mostly telephone shops, upwards of 1,000. I have butchered 20 or so,... Continue Reading

iSecretshop/Goodwin Hospitality

I accepted a shop with this company for a pizza shop paying $13. That's it--just $13 to cover the cost of (part of?) the meal and that's all. For that, I would have had to make a phone call that included a direct quote and a narrative. Then, I would... Continue Reading

Goodwin restaurant shops

I really enjoy the fresh, healthy food at a restaurant Goodwin represents and so have put up with a lot of issues. (No problems with the schedulers at Summit though, they have been great!) On the positive side: Goodwin reviews surveys quickly and pays according to schedule. ... Continue Reading

Cancel or hope to reschedule with Goodwin?

I was supposed to do a visit today for Goodwin that required a recorded phone call first. I attempted several times to call via the 888 number they have set up. Each time the system told me it was connecting me to the store, but I would get disconnected instead.... Continue Reading

Does Goodwin send you emails?

I like doing shops for Goodwin, however I never receive emails from them. I have checked my profile many times and I have the email notifications turned on. I'd prefer to get emails as I am signed up with so many companies and don't have time to log into each... Continue Reading

Advice on denied shop through Customer Prophet/ Goodwin Hospitality

I need advice! My shop was denied because I used a discount code. I conducted the shop through Customer Prophet / Goodwin Hospitality. They didn't state in their guideline that I couldn't use a discount code. The shop costed me $70 and they only reimbursed $45. I figured since... Continue Reading

Goodwin and Associates Hospitality Services, LLC

Wondering if anyone is current with them. Followed a listing from my jobslinger search, I have never seen a listing from this company in my area before. I wish I could give exact link but that would violate not mixing company with client, but I ended up at what appears... Continue Reading

Anyone know the time frame for reporting shops with Goodwin Hospitality? I did a shop last night for them for a good chunk of change out of my pocket and YES, I did confirm the shop twice prior to the date. For many reasons I was unable to report when... Continue Reading

Goodwin Hotel Shop

I had a hotel shop with Goodwin today. The number listed was for the wrong hotel, so when I arrived, they had no record of my reservation. I called the wrong hotel and cancelled, but it's holding over $200 (more than the hotel room cost), which made me unable to... Continue Reading

Goodwin Hospitality Shops

Is it just in my area that they offer a flat fee, rather than a shop fee plus reimbursement? If what I spend on the shop is completely covered with some left to be considered a 'shop fee', then I guess it might be worth it. My other... Continue Reading

Goodwin & Associates paid in 20 days....

Quite a change from the 3-4 months I was warned about back in 2011, when I first began mystery shopping. Everyone warned me that Goodwin took forever to pay.... I bit the bullet and took a few shops here and there...here and there... I never felt they took "forever" to pay... Continue Reading

Is the frozen yogurt shop still with Goodwin?

Question re: Goodwin's Process

Just completed my first shop for Goodwin yesterday, and am wondering where/how one finds out what status completed shops are in?

How is Goodwin these days?

I've avoided Goodwin & Associates because I've seen reports of late payment/having to chase payment around here. They have a restaurant in my area that I'd really love to try and I'm considering giving it a shot... Has Goodwin gotten any better? Do they pay eventually? Has anyone had recent... Continue Reading

Goodwin cell phone compare shop...$13 total???

Goodwin, Answer Every Question?

GOODWIN FYI: Their healthy kitchen client went to another msc

Noticed that Goodwin's former healthy kitchen client went to another msc. Wondering ( and hoping) this was a direct result of their shops being boycotted due to their sleazy disrespect for paying shoppers on time and trying to justify it with transparent and offensive lies such as "Problems in our accounting...
