Sites that appear to be something they’re not are one of my biggest pet peeves in this industry….I’ve come across another site that fits the bill and wanted to share.
Shopper Systems is a site to avoid for mystery shoppers. At first glance, they appear to be a mystery shopping company. When I tried to register, all I got was a telephone number to call. Not a good sign.
Upon further reading, I did find out that they do not claim to be a mystery shopping company; instead, they provide “academic training” and “practice shops” for new shoppers. I can’t tell what the fees are, but they do mention registration and “tuition” – definitely red flags in this industry!
There are many reputable and free sites that compile shop information from other companies, and these are sites where company members actually post their jobs, unlike sites such as Shopper Systems, where they compile shop postings from other companies without our permission.
Just a friendly warning to all mystery shoppers – this is one site to avoid!
If you are looking for new companies to work with, try Jobslinger – it’s free and has up to date shop information from legitimate mystery shopping companies.
Until next time…happy shopping!
