Caliber

Has anyone heard anything about Caliber? It is not listed on Volition. Does anyone shop for them?

Nice folks, they have very little here. I have done shops for them to check to see if demos are set up in grocery stores. Easy reports, pay on time.
I really like shopping for them. Lately though they haven't had anything in my area. I usually do a shop for them at least once a month, but not this month.
I do some of their taste test shops that are set up in a grocery store that I also do as a shop for another company. When the starts align, I can sometimes get both on the same visit. Easy shop; reliable payment.

Have video cam; will travel

Poor customer service? Don't get mad; get video.
Caliber has grocery demo's for you to do I even did a wharhouse club for them. There forms are easy and they do pay on time also and that is the most important.
I do a minimum of eight shops a month for them. These are generally supermarket, $14.00 each, sometimes bonused, weekend observations. The chain , at least in this area,is expensive and so I need to get the circular and plan, plan, plan. Deli and a realistic under the carriage item are the only required purchase.
The reports are fifty + yes/no ? and associate names or descriptions with a receipt upload e-mail and a small narrative.The data is mainly interactive , therefore time saving. You can easily do 4 shops a day between the required hours.Note: I only shop for two and the cat. So depending on your point of view you're earning $14 an hour not including travel or saving $14 on groceries. Payment arrives mid month via pay pal & covers the entire previous month and has always been accurate.

Only problem I've had was being assigned a warehouse shop that didn't have a demonstrator scheduled.

So now I stick to the grocery and have made Caliber a bread "n butter staple. ;<winking smiley .
They got the shop I used to do for another MSC, and lowered the age requirement, so, I would love to cotinue working for them, but cannot.
They are a good solid company.

Live consciously....
I just started shopping this month and have only shopped grocery stores for this company. My two main stops are both between 1 and 2 miles from the house so it works great for me. The deli item can be as low as a 1/4lb of anything and i usually put a cheap bag of kitty litter under my cart and then return the kitty litter on my next return shop and either re-buy it or grab a case of water. They are easy to work for. They even arranged a clothing shop and grocery shop across town for me that were scheduled for seperate days into the same day on my request so that I wouldnt have to drive out there two days in a row!

I recently re-assigned with them and did a few shops yesterday...

Shopping Eastern Pennsylvania and parts of NJ, since 2009
4 NJ,NY,CT I've seen supermarket, warehouse & kool (sizes up to L, home accessories) clothing store chains
I usually use my underbasket for something like water or a case of juice boxes and then donate them to my kids' school for parties, or my cub scout pack. I also got so many cases of water I was able to supply field day for my son's school. I do about 60+ of them a month and do not need any more toilet paper! There were also weeks that in planning for my husband's 40th birthday BBQ I bought 12 packs of soda and just stocked up that way. I HATE returning items and don't want to start being noticed doing it and not be able to do the shops. I consider them more bread and butter now than MFI.
After reading this topic I went and checked their job board as I have been signed up with this company for many months and never saw anything in my area. Same thing happened today and I was curious what supermarket they shopped so I looked under other states and nothing. I even did a search for all the US and it showed nothing. What am I doing wrong?

Triple Platinum Certified - Shopping South Central Kansas
They only do weekends and the ones that aren't filled they take down until the next weekend when they are available
Irene-L.A, what has Caliber's age requirement been lowered to?

I so know what you mean suzieboz, I have seltzer cans on the floor, a closet full of toilet paper and paper towels. I read and adopted the kitty litter under basket idea. Need to think of a new cold cut , sick of ham or turkey! What's an MFI?
Market Force Information; I was anticipating payment from them in the early part of last week but they pushed it out again. I've got plenty of kitty litter too, I guess I could start stocking up on the cheaper gravel kind for winter to put down over the ice. My daughter is a salami fanatic so I get her that. I also get all kinds of different 1/4 pounds of cheeses and make "different" grilled cheese combos for dinner (they have a horseradish cheddar that is delicious on some sourdough bread for a grilled cheese!)
Supermarket? Bread and butter? Toilet papaer?
They only do a clothing store in my area. Purchase and return withing ana hour. Kind of a pain if you have to go special.

I hit what sounds like the same wall some months ago. Caliber is not on Sassie anymore but [www.caliberinteractions.com]
@Pat - I hate doing purchase and return shops and that one shows up here all the time too and I never take it.
I just started mystery shopping and caliber is the first company i have worked for. I have mostly done grocery stores and just recently did a clothing store. Thye are nice people and very personable. They even rescheduled the clothing shop on the same day as a grocery shop so I would be able to do both at the same time on my request since they were both 15 miles away.
I love this company! Pay is consistent, the shops are fun, and communication with the schedulers is reliable and fast. I would do a lot more shops if they weren't taken so fast. I check their site daily, hoping for shops to pop before I even get emails. Highly recommended!
I used to get E-mails, but lately the shops are gone by Thursday night. I shoulda neva praised them!

Actually it's good to see good things happen to good people.
I received an email advising me that in my isolated area, there would be jobs available the next week. I signed up with the company, and sure enough, I did five shops the following week.

Since then, there has been nothing in my area. I am certain when there is, I will get another email. Until then, the forms were easy, the pay was satisfactory, and payment ws fairly quick. I give them a 9 or 10. Would shop for them anytime.
It seems that everyone is having quite a few Caliber shops lately. I haven't seen anything in my area from them for months.
I believe 55 for the fun younger style shop...used to do them all the time, no more..... marijaldm Wrote:

I hate purchase and returns as well. So I try to buy something I hate and something I like, preferably on sale. I return the "I hate you" item & keep the "I like you" and leave the store feeling good. A true win win.... except that debits hit my account in minutes and credits days later, even when returned within one hour and fifteen minutes.
My personal favorite with the P/Rs are the stores that will not refund with cash even if you pay with cash.
I am also a new sign up with Caliber. Signed up one day-got job next. It was a survey for an auto parts shop. Not hard--pay descent. From the comments, it looks like I pick a good company!
