Did anybody work for this company? There is not a lot of information on their website, but they appear to have work available in my area. When do they usually pay? Do they require you to submit receipts etc?

I do a couple of jobs a month for them. I like their assignments and their pay. I believe they took around 45 days to pay me last time. Most of the jobs I have done for them have not required me to submit receipts.

They are one of my favorites, I shop about 6 times a month for them. The pay is very good, the report is easy and the payments are sent in a timely fashion.

Fabulous company, nice people, reliable pay. They don't pay lightning fast, but in 45-50 it is always there. Occasionally they pay a bit quicker than that, but you don't have to worry about them. There's no scolding, "reminders", or silliness. They just give you your assignment and explain what they want clearly. You'll like them I think. Some projects require receipts and most can be faxed to a toll-free. A few things don't require them.

I like Quest For The Best alot. The assignment forms are very easy and quick. The assignments are quick and the pay decent. The payments have been received in a timely manner. They also say on their email notices that Gold and Silver certified are sent advanced notices of assignments. I would recommend shopping for them. They added up my shop payments wrong once and I called them and they mailed out the correct amount that day. No horsing around and making me wait.

I like Quest for Best a lot. So far, all the assignments I've done for them (not much, about once or twice a month) are food related. The pay is, to me, more than reasonable given the small amount of work that needs to be done. For the assignments I've done for them, they always pay a fee plus adequate reimbursement for the food. Their forms are simple and straightforward. The requirements are reasonable in terms of how many people you must interact with and what you need to observe.

The ONLY reminder I get from them is an automated but politely phrased one that they send after I submit a report -- to send in a receipt for one of their clients, because this client requires a receipt. Shoppers are given a choice of either mailing the receipts or faxing them to a toll free number.

Payment is like clockwork.

I would be delighted if more companies were like Quest for Best.

This is a company that notifies MSPA certified shoppers first. I love working for them. I fax my receipts and the number is toll free.

I like Quest for the Best, too, for all the reasons already stated. I wish they had MORE shops around here . . .


Happily shopping the Portland, Oregon metro area!

I too, have shopped for them, and enjoy the shops a lot. As stated above, you don't have to worry about the pay, and the pay is pretty good.

My problem is......They never have any shops in my area anymore!

I have yet to do a shop for Quest for the Best. I have been sent job opportunities but they have been more than 50 miles away. I am HOPING to get some in my area. From the descriptions of what I have read for the jobs you are fairly paid for the work you do. Better than most.

If all companies were run like the Roams (Chuck & Patty) run Quest For Best, nobody would ever have a complaint!
They are fantastic.

I enjoy working for this company. There are not a lot of jobs in my area but sometimes I manage to get a few. They don't pay as fast as some of the others but they do pay. I have never had a problem working with this company.

I like working for them as well. Pay is decent and paid in a timely manner - generally 30 - 45 days. The forms are easy to use for the shops I've done and take very little time to do for the pay/reimbursement.

How did you get more jobs when you updated your certificate on SASSIE? They are a Prophet site. Now, you can also update your certificate with them - but it is Prophet, not SASSIE.

They are on the Volition list of mystery shopping companies on the Q thru Z page. They are listed as Quest for Best. You can link directly to their website from there.

I echo the other sentiments. The shops are well compensated for what is required. I have only completed 4 shops for them - but I really have enjoyed them.

It took me a while for my first shop with Quest for the Best, but now I always try for more. My area is limited with available shops but the reports are easy to complete and payment is always timely !

I'm hoping my gold certification Saturday will locate more shops with Quest for the Best.

This is a great company to work for. I have completed several assignments for them in the past and I have never had any problems with them. They are reliable.
