I just did my first shop for them. I found them a pleasure to work with. My notification was prompt after I applied for the shop. The directions were clear.When I had a question after I submitted my report I received a quick response. Would love to do more shops for them.

One of the best company to work for. Clear directions and helpful staff. I try to do as much work as I can find in my area.

I completed a whole bunch of shops for them back around the first of the year. They were easy and I enjoyed them. I had a problem with my pay getting to me and I had to call them but they were polite and worked it out fairly quickly. Professionally run company.

I look forward to the shops I do for them every month. I just wish they had more in my area.

I used to work for Quest for Best all the time. However, the offers have slowed down tremdously for me. I only get offers once in a while, and those are not in my area. I have not gotten my MSPA certification yet so I think that is why.

I highly recommend this company. The reports are very easy and the pay is reasonable. The payment is not the fastest, but is very reliable.

I recently signed up with this company. I did two shops for them that were easy and quick. The pay was excellent and I was paid within 3 weeks. I received an e-mail from them this morning stating that they had new shops. I logged on quickly becase I definitely would love to work for them again.

I have completed one restaurant shop for them--I loved the restaurant--great food! The questionnaire was easy too. However, I wish there were more shops in my area. The only problem I have with them is that this week, they began sending me e-mails about shops available, yet when I logged onto the site, the shops were at least 90-100 miles away from me, when the e-mail said they send shops in a 50-mile radius. I got all excited yesterday when I saw what looked like the same restaurant I did before, then I clicked on it, and it was too far.

I think they send out initially to the closer radius of 50 miles, then if the shop doesn't get taken they widen the notification area. They have also recently started giving Gold Certified Shoppers a headstart. Quest is #1 on my list.

I love shopping this company. They send email alerts to let you know jobs are availabe. I can self assign jobs.The online report is very user friendly. I like the clients they shop. They are fairly abundant in my area. One of my favorite companies.

I have completed work for this company many times in the last four months. I would not hesitate to recommend them. They are a self-assign company with great instructions and follow-up notification emails. They pay promptly and are now using Paypal. I check their site often for new job availability. A+++

Great company to work for, run by REAL people who don't mind helping out over a phone line. Pay is better than most, comes a little slow but reliably.

Alas, after working for them for years, I cannot do jobs for them now since they only pay thru PayPal and I don't deal with PayPal.

I miss them...

I love the REAL people aspect of it. I had some confusion about the location of one of the sites. Two were located close to one another, and the store addres was a Rt 2 Box xx, and I obviously didn't want to shop the wrong one.
So I called the number, spoke to a real person, and when I told the lady my problem, she handed the phone to a guy. He described my surroundings and said that I was indeed at the right spot. When I asked if that info was in the computer or something, he said that he made a point to be familiar with the areas! How's THAT for service!! I was truly impressed.

Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!

I have worked for them almost every month since I started and they have always paid on time. If there's a problem, they are right on it. Their schedulers and payroll staff are super friendly. A big A+ for these guys and gals!

Lisa, you can check their site for jobs. They do give those of us that are certified early notification, which I love, but anyone can go to their site and look for postings. I am always sad when I am out working and someone beats me to the shop, I love working for this company.

I was just wondering if anyone has worked for this company recently - I noticed the last post was about 8 months ago. I just completed my first job for them last night. I have to say, so far, I like Quest for Best! The restaurant was great, the pay was very fair, and the form was easy and straightforward. Do they still pay via Paypal? Are they still good about paying shoppers on time? I appreciate any feedback.

I really enjoy working for them. I've only done some food jobs for them which is just fine. The jobs I have completed were simple; payment and reimbursement were reasonable.

I found them very responsive to email inquiries. Quest for the Best uses Prophet software. That system is VERY DEPENDENT on the shopper responding to email by logging on their site and reviewing the job. If you want it, accept. If not, decline on the site, so that it may be offered to someone else.

See my followup comments on Prophet

I just began shopping for this company last month... I think it had something to do with getting silver certified! I have enjoyed the shops, and it was great to read all of the positive feedback regarding payment. I tend to accept just a few shops from companies I am new to... I don't want to get burned! I won't hesitate to select more assignmenst from them, now.
