OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON PROJECTS - RULES - PAYMENTS
UPCOMING PROJECTS / RECRUITMENT
- As many of you may know, we have a division of our company dedicated to Operations and Loss Prevention CONSULTING and AUDITING. We have several new projects coming up in the next 2 to 4 weeks where we need EXPERIENCED RETAIL and or LOSS PREVENTION auditors. These are NOT Mystery Shopping jobs, but in depth (1.5 to 2 hr) audits that require a person to have retail management or loss prevention experience. These jobs will pay very well, up to $40 per hour for hired on consultants. If you have the expertise - Please EMAIL US at email@example.com - It is ALSO VERY IMPORTANT that you have listed on your Profile question "Do you have Retail Auditing or LP Experience?" A good description of your experience. We use this area to search out auditors, investigators, and retail experience.
Shoppers we highly recommend against shoppers using AOL Email addresses for signing up on this site. Instead we encourage shoppers to sign up for a free yahoo or hotmail account to use for purposes of Mystery Shopping communication on any Sassie systems. AOL has been noted to send all email coming from Sassie to Junk and Spam folders, preventing our shoppers from receiving alerts, communication about assignments, and important new job postings.
ALL SHOPPERS that shop with CRS must have a VALID SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER or tax ID number
on file to work with us REGARDLESS of if a person thinks that they will make under $600 for the year. We must have every employee and sub-contractor's Tax Information ON FILE.
It is illegal to provide false tax information to any company to receive wages or compensation.
All information is stored in an SSL Encrypted very secure database with limited access for only representatives processing payroll.
Shoppers can go to the IRS website and apply for a Tax ID number to use if they do not wish to use their SSN number for Tax reporting.
NEW WITH US?
A tip: To receive more assignments or to land your first assignment with us, make sure you have completed the "EXTENDED PROFILE" section on the registration page. The EXTENDED profile is a LINK accessed from your initial Registration Profile. Here, shoppers are able to expound more on their qualifications, experience and special certifications. Our Schedulers Look for this information when Assigning Shops and choosing shoppers. SELL YOURSELF HERE!
DO GOLD AND SILVER CERTIFIED GET MORE JOBS?
YES they do! If you would like information on how to become Gold or Silver trained and certified ' please visit the MSPA site who offer certification programs for shoppers / auditors nationwide. https://www.mysteryshop.org/
All shoppers must confirm their assignments on the confirm link that is located inside their shop log or by responding to scheduler emails promptly. Once given an Assignment and once we receive confirmation, you are contractually accepting the job on our terms. You are not only confirming that you can complete the assignment, but that you have also read the guidelines and understand what is expected for a successful job and compensation.
Shoppers that are new will be required to train and qualify after being given assignments on certain programs. Shoppers must make a concerted effort to be available for Trainers. Lack of accessibility which results in delay of training will result in the shopper's assignment being reassigned.
PAYMENTS FOR WORK
Shoppers or Auditors that are NOT PAYPAL users must submit an invoice to Our Managing Director, Kendra Parker via email at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive payment. Shops or Audits that require an out of pocket expense of $25 or more are paid within 10 business days. Payroll is processed on MOST projects (not all) once a month between the 10th and 15th for all shops completed the previous month. Example: If you complete a shop in the month of November, your shop will be paid out sometime between Dec. 10th and Dec 15th via paypal. Those NON paypal shoppers must wait on a check to be be processed. This is a manual process and can take 30 days or longer AFTER the shopper submits an invoice as described above.
Paypal payments and Checks will have the company header 'Asset Protection' which is our corporate legal company name.
NOT COMPLETING AN ASSIGNMENT / DEACTIVATION:
Shoppers that fail to complete an assigned job and do not communicate in advance will be deactivated from this database. We have too much at risk with our clients! Shoppers need to understand that canceling jobs or not completing assignments COST US MONEY- we have to repost them, normally they are last minute, bonuses have to be added and schedulers are paid for their additional time re-assigning the shop. BE RESPONSIBLE when accepting shops and adding them to your calendar.
CRS currently does have part time and full time positions open for experienced Retail Auditors, and Editors. Resumes should be sent to our general email box email@example.com
