    Secret Shopper Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at National Shopping Service in August 2009.

    Interview

    A scheduler from National Shopping Service called me on the phone and wanted to know if I would be interested in doing an assignment for them. The scheduler told me that the company gathered my information from a survey that I did for a Marketing and Research company. I asked if the company was legit and I was told "Yes," that they were accredited by the Better Business Bureau and that they had a website where I could check out what the company was about. The scheduler told me that if I was interested in doing assignments for National Shopping Service that I should go to the company's website and sign up. That was the one and only interview that I had with the scheduler before I became a shopper. The key for a successful interview is to be yourself and ask questions to make sure that you understand what is required of you. The scheduler that I spoke to was friendly and straight forward with me. He/she was knowledgeable enough to make me want to become a shopper.

    Interview Questions

    • Would I mind spending money for an item that I would get reimbursed for?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate during the phone interview because that was my first time doing that type of work. After I completed 3 assignments and the company was pleased with my reports, then I was offered a bonus in addition to my pay. If you follow instructions carefully and give detailed information, then you may be offered a bonus. If you done several assignments and are good at what you do, when a scheduler offers a bonus, then you can negotiate to see if you can get more money. That most likely will happen if a scheduler is familiar with your work and the contributions that you have made to the company.
