BAI / BARE Associates International - Secret Shopping ReviewI know local friends who have worked with BAI / BARE Associates International. They send you email alerts, plus you can go online to check on available opportunities there.
They have a TRILLION bank shops, you could do those every day, all day long if you wanted to. You get $10 for going in, learning what the bank offers, and leaving. It's quick and easy.
Now that being said, there is something to be aware of here. because they don't want you to be "tracked" by the bank (i.e. this is supposed to be anonymous) you're supposed to give fake information and dodge having them take your phone number etc. While this might be fine if you go somewhere distant, it presents obvious problems if you try local branches! What if you have to go in there some other time? What if you run into the person in another context? This is something that bothers me a lot personally, but some people don't care at all. You need to determine if this is a good fit for you.
They do rarely have other tasks but they are primarily bank jobs.
Payments are prompt and without problem.
NOTE: BAI uses the "Sassie Shop" engine to handle their logons and processing. Many different Secret Shopper companies use Sassie Shop as their engine. Don't confuse Sassie Shop with the actual secret shopper company! Think of Sassie Shop as "FrontPage" - i.e. as a web tool. It's just software. You could look at 20 different companies that designed their websites in FrontPage, but they will all be very different from each other. Make sure you keep track of which *secret shopper* company you are working with, even if they all happen to use Sassie Shop as their search engine system.
