Thousands of companies work to improve their services and businesses every day by using Testers who anonymously go into stores and report back to the companies about their shopping experience. Usually customer service, quality control, cleanliness and organisation.

Being a product tester is fun, its flexible and comes with a lot of perks. Let's get you started on your first Testing Assignment.

To excel or to become a successful tester, you must be good at paying attention to your surroundings and remembering details. Remember the name of each employee you interact with, the clothing being worn, if you are greeted politely with a smile. You might be asked to rate the product given in terms of quality. You might be required to ask assistance of the employees and rate their helpfulness. If you forget important details you may not get good ratings. It would be a good idea to take notes after each assignment. Keep a notebook and pen to record information you are likely to forget later on. You can keep notes on your phone if it helps.

Follow the instructions exactly as they are given to you. This is mandatory and you must remain anonymous or it defeats the purpose of secret shopping.
