I completed six of this type shops in 2007 for Trendsource; the pay was $65 per job. The mechanic, who accompanied me to the location, actually interacted with the independent garage, and I merely submitted a short report. How sweet it was!
Jbrz123 inquires--How did you recruit the mechanic?
Bob's reply--I was not involved with the hiring; it was Trendsource. It was during that period when they also paid $45 for a group session on Medicare gap products, $21 for business verification assignments and occasionally a PAD of $20 for grocery shops. They seem to have only become super tight with fees when they realized there were shoppers willing/needing to toil for a pittance.
