Has Anyone Done One of the SeeLevel 2 Question Shops?

My email has been blown up by SeeLevel for the past few days. They have a "super easy 2 question shop with GeoVerify", but there's no job description. It only pays $5, but I'm curious. However, I don't want to apply, then have to cancel, as I have the feeling the job isn't worth my time or the gas to get there, even if I might be passing by anyway.

I passed on it. The only way I would do it was if I was already going to that store for some other reason. It's not worth driving 8 miles round trip, parking my car, and walking in the store for $5, LOL.
It really takes no time except that it can be difficult to get service. If you could go early in the day and not on weekends, you'll be in and out. You just have to ask one question of two different employees and it is a yes/no question about each response.
really easy. one question to assigned dept employee and same question to cashier. get geoverify for POV and leave. The question is yes or no. report takes 30 seconds. Great for route shop if passing by or really close. It only pays $5.

Shopping Western NY, Northeast and Central PA, and parts of Ohio and West Virginia. Have car will travel anywhere if the monies right.
I took it then canceled. It's not "easiest shop ever". You have to put a big ticket item in your cart, then ask both an employee and cashier a question, put it back, and leave. Too much time for $5 to me.

Thanks for sharing that detail! I had considered taking one, but with this added info, I'll pass for $5.00.
You don’t have to put it back. Just leave it at the register. And you can literally grab anything.

Still not worth $5 unless you’re very close. I don’t know what would be worth doing at that price.

Well, I'd feel like a jerk if I just left an expensive item at the register because I "forgot my wallet" and never return. Still ridiculous advertising as they don't tell you the details of the shop in the advertisement email.
I took this one because I was curious. It took me over 30 minutes to complete this shop. The guidelines call for a photo of the sign from your assigned department. The problem with my assignment was that it was the "Seasonal" department. There was no sign in the store that stated "Seasonal". I walked through the entire store even though I knew where the "Seasonal" department was. And trying to find someone to ask the question was difficult. I went during a non-peak time and there weren't that many employees around. The second issue was finding a big ticket item that I could lift and place in my cart, from that department. It was mostly deck table/chair sets. Not worth it in my opinion, even if you're already there.
Such great feedback! I almost signed up for one of these this weekend. I didn’t, because there wasn’t enough detail. Hmmm. Now I know why.
Well, here's one tip. The store has some items that they don't stock on shelves and just provide tickets with the barcode. Any customer buying one of those items has to pay and then wait for it to be brought out. Totally normal and easy to leave. But it's also ok to leave something. Go backs aren't such a pain. Just don't take the last of something off the shelf.
Even if it was the,easiest of shops, I wouldn't take. I have no desire to assist MSCs in their race to the bottom. Others seem not to care, I do.

$5.00 is not worth the time it would take to look for the car keys let alone drive it.
I thought about taking one if it turned out I would be there anyway. But then I have no idea how I would "geoverify". I have never had a job that required that and for a $5 job did not want to bother starting a thread. But what do they mean by that? Would I just have to turn something on when I take the pic? Not even sure I have that on my phone or camera.
No, there is an app called Geoverify that is used for some Sassie MSCs. If you have a smartphone you can download it and the app is free.
I did of them recently and it could be easy if you get service fast, but if not, it's not worth it. Do it only if you have to go there or that area for something else. I actually did the same shop at the same store for a different MSC last year for three times as much!
The GeoVerify app is very easy to use. I have it on my current Samsung S9 and I would bet that I have been using it since 2010 or so, one smartphone after another.

I too have a Galaxy S9+. Nice phone. I like it much better than my old phone (LG). But the Geoverify app works well on any Smartphone I ever had.

I also did this shop for another MSC for $15-$20 at the same stores and can't see myself doing it for $5. It might be simpler now, but still, there is my fuel and drive time. Like I said, I won't even do the one that's 8 miles round trip for $5.
One of the simplest shops I've ever done! As long as you aren't driving out of your way to get it done, schedule it in a route and it's an easy $5!
For $5 I would have to already be in the store, not just driving by. And then I'd have to think about it.

Yes since I was already in the area. Simplest job ever. I wish I could’ve shopped the employees. They were not helpful at all!
These shops remind me of the Bed Bath and Beyond shops where you had to carry around a large item until someone offers you a cart. I spent 20 minutes lugging around a bed in a bag until an employee asked me if I wanted a cart. No thank you.
Also, go backs are a pain in the butt! I'd feel like a turd leaving something at the register, also.
