How do they notify you that a shop was accepted? I just did my first shop for them, but there is nothing on the site to show shops completed/received.

Did you get a confirmation number when you submitted it? I have neverr had problems submitting a shop for them. If you submitted it and it's gone from your to do lsit chances are they got it, but it's a good idea to write down your confirmation numer.

It's a shame they don't have jobs in my area. They sound like a great company to work for.

Shopping Puerto Rico! I wanna merchandise too. Help!

I've had very good, uneventful experiences with this company in the past. However, a few weeks ago, I was SO favorably impressed! There was a conflict between the shop instructions and the worksheet. Well, the first good news was that the instruction page had a toll-free phone number to call for questions. Then, the phone was promptly answered by a real person (Charles). He was quite pleasant, looked into the situation right then, and apologized for the problem. He said he would get the forms fixed in 20 minutes or so and email me when it was done. And 15 minutes later all was fixed. No wondering and worrying if I would get an answer before the shop date! Very professional company!!

I have to chime in also. I have done several shops for this company and once you understand the Prophet System the reports, finding paperwork etc. is easy and simple. They pay on time and get AAAAA+ from me. Di

More praise from me for this company. The shops get snapped up quickly in this area, so they must be popular.

I just started mystery shopping in July and my first shop was with Quest for Best. I only do this very part-time (averaging about one shop per week), and have done one shop each month for them. I've had no troubles whatsoever and find their pay to be very reasonable.

I used to be inundated with email job alerts from this company, but of late I haven't gotten anything from them. As I recall, it was basically two food chains they sent the emailings out for.

Has anyone recently gotten the job notices or does anyone know if they lost the contracts or where they've gone to?

I did my first shop for them yesterday and it was lots of fun! The forms are easy and the instructions were very clear. First shop that I have ever done that did not require a receipt.

I have not received e-mails from them since they changed the website. But they only had/have one shop in my area to begin with. I do like their forms and instructins.

I really like Quest for Best - I appreciate the logical way that the shopper section of their website is set up, and their shop forms are quite easy to fill out. It only takes me about 1/3-1/2 as much time to fill out Quest for Best forms out vs other MS companies. So I try to snap their shops up whenever I get an e-mail blast from them. Unfortunately, in my area (within 20-25 miles), shop opportunities are limited. Oh, well--I wish them well on their Quest for the Best!
(yes, I know that I shouldn't have "gone there" with that last quip!)

I do at least one or two shops a month for Quest For Best. They pay via PayPal, the month after the shops were completed.

Last month I had to cancel a shop because we had tons of rain and flooding, and several roads were blocked because of hillside slips. I literally could not get to the location I had scheduled, because the roads were closed off. The person I spoke with was very nice, and assured me that I would still be able to do shops for them in the future. I just completed a shop for them yesterday, as a matter of fact.

I love this company, their shops are fun and do not require crazy scenarios or long narratives. The instructions are clear and the forms are simple to complete. I would highly recommend Quest For Best to anyone who asked about it.

I love shopping for them, too. Last summer, after Hurricane Charley hit down here, I had a shop scheduled on Sanibel Island. Not realizing how badly the island was hit, I headed that way. The business was still closed due to hurricane damage. Quest For Best still paid me the fee, which covered my gas and tolls. Very generous, I shop for them every time something is available here!

I see more, not fewer, shops from the company in my area. I love this company. The instructions and forms are clear. Communication and payment are prompt. Patti is nice and professional. I would love it if more companies were like this one.

It's so strange how things happen sometimes. I had no sooner posted my message than I began getting the email job alerts again.

Gosh, perhaps I should try that with some of the other companies I'd like to hear from more frequently and see if it works as well!

Five stars in my book!

Wish they had more in my area.
