Hi all! I am new to the secret shopper society (ha!)

To the people that aren’t so new: what’s your favorite thing about being a secret shopper?

Hi there, welcome!

To me, it's the excitement of "playing the part" on a shop, and the fact that I'm doing something good and contributing to the improvement of someone's business :)

I hope you find plenty of exciting shopping experiences and then tell us what's your favorite part!

I like the fact that there are always new challenges. Just when you think you've done them all, a new type of shop will come out that is totally different. And then you can get into video which is a whole new world!

Greetings fellow shoppers

Not sure why the rest of my post didn’t appear but I wanted to add that I signed up 1 month ago and have completed 2 assignments- a candy shop & a gastropub/restaurant. I’m enhouing my experience- it’s challenfing and the tasty delights are a bonus

You should take one of the video courses, either through MSPA or IMSC. Then change your profile in the companies you work with to show you have done it and have the equipment. If they have any video shops, they will start to show up in your searches on the job boards.

My favorite thing is the flexibility to make my own schedule. I travel frequently, and I can't imagine any 9-5 office job that would let me take a vacation every month. Or let me sleep in til noon when I feel like it. I also appreciate the independence.

Yes this isecret site has given me also my much needed independence from my nine to five job.
