Post Office shops? Is it ok to tell me the company that has the contract now?

Mod note: Welcome back to mystery shopping. Your post was removed as it breached the Forum guideline which states, "Do not reveal the clients of mystery shopping companies". Additionally, it is usually an ICA violation to name both the MSC and client.

Yes I do know, but when you post, the forum posting guidelines appear in a blue box next to your post that states: Do not reveal the clients of mystery shopping companies. That means no one can tell you.

I think it might be best mark but I am not sure....so aside from digging through every companies' 100's of postings!!! I figured I would ask here directly to save me some time.

The short answer is NO, it's not okay to tell you.

The longer answer is that it's against the forum's posting guidelines. In addition, when mystery shoppers register with a mystery shopping company, they sign Independent Contractor Agreements (ICA). Almost all those ICAs contain confidentiality clauses that restrict mystery shoppers from releasing proprietary information about their clients, shops, etc., to anyone. The company who has the client you are asking about does have such a confidentiality clause. That means anyone registered with that company cannot reveal the information you are seeking to you in an email, a PM, or on an open internet forum.
I will give you a hint: The MSC is listed in the "Official List of Mystery Shopping Companies" at the bottom of this page.
Here is another hint...it is no longer on a Sassie company, but IS on a company that uses another well-known platform. Also, in my area at least, none of these jobs are posting right now. So you may have inadvertently searched the correct MSC but not seen anything because they are not posting any at this time. Hang in there and keep searching!!
On that note.......has anyone seen the regular shops posted? I haven't seen anything in my area since August.

Shopping up and down the Colorado Rocky Mountain front range.
I did see some posts in Federal Soup recently about the bonus program for the USPS and their mystery shop scores. *feels sorta bad as the nice post master ships off my batteries and perfume or mystery box via priority mail*

Thank you so much. I had a feeling....NOW-I understand we can talk about the shops and talk about the companies but not both linked together in a post.

And not linked together in the same thread, either. There is a bit of discussion about this company in the forum and they do other types of shops as well as PO shops. I wish you well in your search. Meanwhile, while signing up with other companies, you might just find some other types of shops!
when previous company lost that shops they sent email to everyone saying who will perform those in the future..

Shopping Eastern Pennsylvania and parts of NJ, since 2009
The previous MSC didn't lose the client. The current MSC was subcontracting the work. Naturally they would inform shoppers of the change.

I can't imagine that any company than the current one has ever been, or will ever be, the company that does these. It's a helluva job to get a gov't contract!
I think they stopped subcontracting beginning in 2016.

Yep. When the change was made, there was a scheduler with the "new" company posting that she would provide the name of the "new" company if a shopper were to PM her. Perhaps she still will. Search the forum to find her posts.
Thank you all. Like I said it has been 2 years plus since I had to stop due to medical reasons so I was inactive so may or may not have received and email from BI. Thank you very much!!

Hey, even past MSCs can't be mentioned if the client has been discussed...remove the MSCs initials in your post. ☺

Whew. I thought it was just me.

I think the regular shops are only posted 2 times each quarter. If I am right tgeu will be back in October.

It's a 3rd party scheduler, Judith@summitscheduling.com

Yup, email me and I can help you find them.

As a side note, it's the same company who has had them for years, nothing has changed recently. Some shoppers have contacted me thinking there was ANOTHER change because this has resurfaced but that's not the case. We are just winding down one quarter and about to launch another.
