I am already signed up with several companies for Mystery Shopping assignments. Do I have to complete a separate sign up or profile for merchandising jobs? I never see these types of assignments on the job boards of the companies I am enrolled with.
Merchandising companies usually do not have mystery shopping programs. There are very few mystery shopping companies who have merchandising jobs. Most merchandising companies hire as employees, whereas mystery shopping companies contract ICs. Advantage Solutions, Acosta, etc. are a few examples of merchandising companies. Customer Impact is a mystery shopping company that occasionally has small merchandising jobs.
Thank you ...that explains so much. I recently completed a couple jobs that were merchandise-related (i.e. hanging coupons and counting dog treats at Walmart and re-arranging an ihome speaker display at Kohls) and I really liked those. I would like to do more of these types of jobs.
You can put your profile on World Alliance and merchandising companies will be able to find you. You can also apply online to Advantage Solutions or Acosta I do believe. There are other merchandising companies out there, some of which have been mentioned in the merchandising section of this forum. I am sure others will chime in.
