We often decide where to shop or who to do business with based on our previous shopping experience with the store.We remember if our waiter was rude, or if we stood at checkout for 10 minutes waiting for the sales person to finish talking on the phone with her boyfriend. Because our bad experiences will keep us away, and good experiences will keep us coming back, companies want to know if their employees are acting as they should.
To accomplish this, companies hire mystery shoppers to visit the stores and report back on the experience.There are wide assortments of businesses that utilize mystery shoppers. I have done an assortment of shops that include apartment complexes, fast food restaurants, large department stores, sit down restaurants, online services, travel agencies, convenience stores, smaller retail stores, gas stations, outlet malls, hotels, grocery stores and even amusement parks. And there are so many more that I haven’t experienced yet. Imagine getting a job as a shopper for a cruise line! Those jobs are out there, and as you establish your name in this business they will become available to you.
