I completed my first reveal shop for a restaurant. I was super nervous as this is a place that I frequent often enough to be remember. Also, no one besides my bf and mom knows that I mystery shop. Well, I had to tell my friend that I was a mystery shopper because she was my dinner date. It was slightly embarrassed. She asked if I got paid for it and a thousand other questions.
The reveal went fine. The scheduler said I'd be able to shop the location again in 90 days.
Glad it well for you eyelove, but personally I would avoid reveal shops for locations I normally frequent. And also any shops at all. I would be concerned about my personal opinions skewing my report if something went wrong, and also about the reaction if I returned to the location as a customer after I had revealed myself as a shopper.
Don't want to alarm you but if the reveal went bad in terms of what points the associate missed and you returned to the restaurant as a customer, the food staff might do something to your food. I'm just saying.
