Has this company branched out beyond the Philly area? It appears the shoppers offering praise are from other states.

I think they are talking about phone shops.

It sounds too good to be true. Get paid the same day and no typing up reports. But that's exactly how it went for me. Mark was really easy to work with. Took a little bit longer than the 1/2 hour he estimated, but it went well. Payment came through without a hitch.

Recently completed my first shop (restaurant) and it was great. Pay was fast, and Marc is very responsive to e-mails and phonecalls. I am looking forward to my next assignment in November.

This is by far the fastest paying shop I have done. As soon as I hung up the phone the pay was deposited in my paypal!!

I haven't received an email from this company in a long time though, would love to do more shops for Marc.

Should I be filling out this online application?

Very professional company to deal with. Report instructions are detailed and provide all the information you need to complete the shop. Marc is very responsive and the turn around on both reports and payments is EXCELLENT! A+ Company to deal with.

Great article about this company in the Philadelphia CityPaper newspaper. http://www.citypaper.net/articles/2008/12/04/the-spy-who-grubbed-me I went to the website and I am a little suprised to see comments from 7 shoppers with their full names. Not that restaurants have time to check this list against all of their reservations or credit card transactions, but it would make a me a little uneasy that the clients have easy access to shopper names. I guess I'm just paranoid, but I think first names would have been plenty.

I just went to the website and noticed that one of the comments is from me. I had forgotten all about it. I stand by what I said. Dawn, thanks for the article and I don't use my own name when I do work for this company.
