Client Quote: “QAMS, your commitment to customer service is the best. There are many, many companies that could learn from you. If all service companies operated like you, doing business would be much easier.”
Payday: This company pays very fast. From 7-14 days. Comparable to Trendsource. Payable by paper checks only. They do not use Paypal.
Pay-rates: While the pay is low, it does come with generous reimbursements. Pay for the fast casual dining is $6 average with $12 reimbursement on food. It seems once again their pay-rates are similar to Trendsource, similar in the time they pay the shopper and nominal reimbursements.
What Shoppers have to say: I don’t see a tremendous amount of complaints but I do see shoppers say there are hardly any QAMS shops in their area and that the pay is lower than other companies. Another common complaint I see (as I am very active with this company) is the time for an Application to be accepted/or approved. This can range from 12 hours to 24-36 hours, waiting to see if you are accepted/or approved. I understand though because this company is high on quality and not just any shopper is chosen for the assignment.
