I use to do shops at a casino in North Carolina but can not seem to find the company that shops them anymore. It has switched hands two times prior. Any suggestions for companies to register with?
Well good for you then. even a simple smoothie shop takes me more than 10 minutes to get there and back at least 40 minutes to fill out the report and upload my receipts. Not to mention the gas I have to put in my car. Worth 20 bucks any day of the week
Guidelines for a dealership assignment say that if you are unable to reach the contact person for an appointment, fill out the report with all 'no' answers. OK I did that, and commented in each section that scheduling an appointment was not successful. It was kicked back to me, with a note that I need to write 4-5 sentences of narrative telling what happened in each section, greeting, presentation, test drive, etc. Editors like this piss me off.
Back in 2005, I accepted a comparison shop for bedding from an MSC no longer in business. I completed both forms, only to discover a third that asked why I did not select the client for my fictitious purchase. I typed "price" and then attempted to submit the report, but received the red warning and learned the box required 800 characters. While I am able to expand from six to 800 with bull, it is very time consuming. When the scheduler later mailed me about another such job, I replied it would be double the fee; I never heard from her again.
I agree with Jenny. People do this for all different reasons. You want all shoppers to not shop unless they offer $20 on top of reimbursement? Dream on. Though personally I do not take the jobs that do not offer reimbursement or pay, just a gift card to use at the same place. But that is my choice. Other people may really like eating at the place so take the job for the free meal.
