[They are time consuming because you have to go to two different departments plus make a purchase and then return 20 minutes later. ....You have to record everything from the moment you enter the store (timing everything) and what was said,etc. The bright side is you get paid within two weeks.
I consider any purchase and return shop as two shops. Unless the price and bonus reflect that I stay away from them.
I wish they didn't have the no shopping for 60 days restriction. I did one in the appliance dept last month. We only have 1 Lowes in our area and all mystery shops with all companies is sparse. A $20 one is pretty good around here and I can't take it. It's driving me nuts.
I need to go to Lowe's for a personal purpose. I need to keep the items I purchase. Ah, well...
I attempted to do a lowes yesterday. My assigned scenario indicated a particular brand with two sets of features. The salesman had no idea what I was talking about with the two sets of features. He actually walked me over to some pads for the bottom of the washer. I sent support a ticket and haven't heard back. I sure hope they pay me a stipend for even going there. Wonder if I should fill out the report as is, given that support hasn't gotten back to me yet.
