Mystery shoppers accept assignments to follow a prescribed pattern of interaction with employees at specific business locations, then report on what they saw, heard and experienced. Usually they go to the place of business, such as a restaurant or department store; sometimes they make phone calls and sometimes they both call and visit the locations. Shoppers are usually Independent Contractors who are paid a specified amount for each assignment, including a fee for completing the visit and filling out the questionnaire correctly and reimbursement for required purchases. As Independent Contractors, they may accept or reject any assignment. Mystery shopping is fun and rewarding, but usually not meant to be a full time job. Those shoppers who work at it full-time normally accept assignments from a variety of mystery shopping companies.
Successful mystery shoppers follow directions carefully without being discovered, are observant, have good memories, and are reliable in completing assignments and prompt in reporting them.
