What does it take to be a mystery shopper?
You need not just to assume an identity, but know your character inside out.
A cool head:
Yes, you’re clandestinely filming the person you’re talking to, but you mustn’t show any outward signs of nervousness.
A good memory:
If you’re operating without a hidden camera, you’ll need to have clear recall of how your mystery shop went.
Knowledge of the subject:
If you’re registering to buy a shared-equity or FirstBuy property, you need to have a grasp of how the finances work, otherwise you’ll get rumbled.
It’s not just property assignments you can be given. The clients for whom Mystery Shoppers Ltd work include funeral directors, motorway toll roads, department stores and car-repair garages.
