Mystery Shopper Gigs At Christmas
It really is just the odd mystery shop between now and the New Year, so make the most of the shops that are available. Mystery shopper gigs at Christmas are few and far between. Retailers are concentrating on their customers at this time of year.
But there are mystery shopper gigs if you keep your eye open. I had a mystery shop last Thursday in a clothing store in a local town. There were several enquiries to make in the same department, and as it happens there was only one team member present in that department.
I had to-
- ask about an item of clothing
- also ask about an item of footwear
- ask to use the fitting room
- then ask a question while in the fitting room
- ask about an online exclusive item
- make a purchase at the till
When you are asking this many questions of the same team member it can be easy to become spotted as a mystery shopper. It is important to keep the conversation as natural as you possibly can and to ensure that you are not spotted as a mystery shopper.
Mystery Shopper Gigs
If someone ever asks you if you are a mystery shopper it’s best to have a set answer in your mind. My stock answer if I was ever called out on it would be-
“Oh, what’s a mystery shopper? That sounds interesting.”
And I’d take it from there. Make sure you have an idea of what you would say if you were ever asked. It could save your fee for that assignment! If you’re interested in mystery shopper gigs then Market Force could be the best place to start.
