Hi!
I am from the Houston area....not much activity on this topic....I know there are a lot of MSer's around here because the jobs go quickly! :)
I've only been doing this since IKE, to supplement income, but have found a whole new world doing this....
Let me know who is still out there...maybe while we are out one day we can have lunch....or maybe we can just chat here....
Lookin forward to some new "co-workers"

Are there any shoppers out there in the NW Ft Worth, TX, area? I'm new to MS (after being laid off from my FT job) and would like to get some feedback on who is great to use in our area; how to bring in the most income, demo or merchandising jobs, etc. Thank you for your assistance.

Hi Everyone,

I'm new to the mystery shopping arena, but am enjoying it. I live and do my shops in the galleria area. There seems to be plenty, but I have to accept them quickly after I find out about them because they go quickly. I've seen a few from the Houston area, but not as many as I thought I would. Say hi if you are. I'd love to start a dialogue and compare notes.

Hi Everyone, I live in Houston and shop the area. There are quite a few people here and jobs. I do jobs from Downtown to the Katy area mostly but venture other places occasionally...

I know a couple other shoppers and have been working at this for 5 years so its my living as such as it is.

I'd love to chat with and meet if we can work things out.

Hi everyone!

I shop San Antonio and some surrounding areas. I would enjoy meeting others who love what they do. I am easy to get along with and love meeting new people to laugh. Anyone from my location wish to keep in touch or have a group already?

Hi Kat. Seeing as your post was a couple months ago, I hope you still get this. I, too, shop Houston and Katy. I've only been doing it since February, but really enjoy it and would like to get to know someone "in the biz". I also shop Sugarland, Richmond, Rosenberg, and Brookshire. I'm in Alief, by West Oaks mall.

Thanks,
Debbie

Where's all the merchandisers in the San Antonio area? I know you're out there I've only met a few through a company I work for.

It would be nice to have a get-together or lunch sometime to do the network/gripe/rant thing

We recently moved to the coastal Bend area. I am in Rockport. Thought I would have to give up my shopping til I return to DFW. After about six weeks of not working..I have found a few shops near me and I'm back at it. Now, I'm looking for merchandising or demo company. If there are any shoppers in this area let me know. Yeah, we could get together or something.

Hi All Texans,

I was booked for a beer demo on 4/29/11 for PMG from SA, Tx. I arrived at the store early but, the manager would not let me work as I'm not bilingual.....I called PMG they called me back and told me to just go home and I would be paid a min. fee I told them that I did'nt think that was fair as I showed up on time to work......Elizabeth from PMG finally said that I would be paid in full......I have not been paid and they have not relied to my last 3 emails.

Hi. I work in the Ft. Worth, Crowley, Burleson, Alvarado area. Anyone else out there maybe in a different part of Ft Worth that I can network with without competing for jobs? Thanks.

I shop everything north of I-10, east to west, on up to New Waverly and from Magnolia to the west and Huffman to the east. I have a regular contracting job with a company that takes me all over these areas on a regular basis so all I have to do is look for extra jobs wherever I plan to be. I know my schedule three months in advance. Sometimes schedulers really think I am doing them a favor to grab these out of the way places but, truth be known, I was going to be there anyway.

I have occasionally gone out to Katy for some high-paying jobs and I go to the Galleria mainly for focus groups. The one place I never go, though, is downtown Houston.

I once worked for a company that shopped a particular grocery store. Sometimes I was sent as far as Galveston (paid by the hour and by the mile).
