Has anyone ever worked for LRA Worldwide, who now is doing mystery shopping at the local airports in the NYC area? There was an Associated Press article in my local paper and I followed it to this website. The article lists several of their clients, so apparently they have no problem knowing "who shops whom."

I didn't see an on-line application on their web-site though for shoppers. I only saw a Director of Human Resources email.

Hadn't heard of them until today. Their fact sheet says they have been in business for quite some time.

I checked their site & it seems there still isn't any application form. Does anyone know how to apply to their company? Thanks.

They don't use mystery shoppers like other companies do. They have inside staff that does the shopping and the shopping also includes training.

I'm confused... I posted to this thread yesterday, asking if there was recent feedback. I think one other person posted after me - I saw the name as the last one to post in the forum list, but when I went to read ... the last post was from KSSLorri back in 1/07. Not sure if I made a posting faux pas and it was removed, or there's something weird w/ Volition

Jill, I think (but am not positive) that when someone goes in and edits their post, their name may show up as the last post. So perhaps what you saw was someone editing their post and not really a new post/response.
While I haven't worked directly with this firm, I have done work through one of their scheduling firms. I had the opportunity to speak with one of LRA's staff members and he was extremely helpful, upbeat and had a positive attitude.

I signed up with one company and they had me sign up with LRA in order to prepare my report. Other than that, I have never received anything from LRA itself. I receive posts, etc. from the initial company and it was for a hotel shop.l

I'm signed up on their Sassie site: http://www.sassieshop.com/2LRA/shoppers/LoginShopper.norm.php

But I never see jobs posted. They have a client that I'd be perfect for, and I'm wondering if anyone has actually cracked the mystery of how to shop for them.

Hi there... Thirteen years later!
I found an offering on Jobslinger Plus from a company named LRA Deloitte. Are they related to LRA Worldwide? They have a super high paying restaurant shop in LA. I wanted to say I never heard of them...but somehow I signed up with them in 2007. I never worked for them and don't ever recall seeing an email from them. Here is the link to their Sassie sign up or log in... http://www.sassieshop.com/2LRA/index.norm.php

anyone have info???

LRA is now part of the global firm Deloitte. They have a mystery shopping division, and sometimes work with other MSP to get shops done, as well as have small teams for other projects that get entered on the Sassie platform.

Thinking I had found a new MSC with whom to apply, I accessed their page only to learn I had been accepted 10 1/2 yrs. ago. It was another case of never having heard from a company. Last month, there was another dating from 2003 that had never contacted me.
