VeriTES: Mystery Shopping Jobs (Full Review)

Company Overview: VeriTES is a member of the Penn Schoen Berland (PSB) Company and is dedicated to serving all of their global clients through powerful marketing solutions. A couple of the industries that they serve are film studios and cinemas. They hire field representatives like mystery shoppers and assignment auditors to complete various jobs within these fields.


How to Sign Up and Get Assignments: I first learned about VeriTES through a job posting on the Mystery Shop Forum offering various positions within movie theatres in a multitude of states all across the United States and Canada. To get started working with VeriTES, click here and select “Employment” at the top of the webpage then click on “sign-up.”


Types of Assignments Offered: Some of the kinds of movie theatre assignments VeriTES has for their independent contractors are, box office and attendance verification, trailer checking, sneak preview evaluations, audience reaction audits, undercover theatre evaluations, and mystery shopping. According to their website, it states, “Assignments typically occur on Friday evenings or throughout the day on Saturday or Sunday. You will be compensated with a predetermined flat fee that varies from assignment to assignment. You must be at least 18 years old to sign up.”


Conclusion: I stumbled across VeriTES completely by accident in the Mystery Shop Forum and it sounded like an interesting company since they specialize in the movie industry. Unfortunately, they are not listed with the Mystery Shopping Providers Association (MSPA), a good indication to determine if they are a reputable company. However, this isn’t necessarily a “deal breaker” and I would suggest for shoppers to at least sign up and give them a try for themselves.

    I work for them. It is great. A regional scheduler lets you know early week what movies need trailers checked. First come first serve for field reps who reply early. It is a great, weekly assignment job, mainly Fridays. Some additional work on Saturdays is sometimes available.

    I’ve been with them since February 2018. I really like the job.

      Hi Mary, can you tell me what their payment schedule is and do they pay through PayPal, direct deposit, etc? Are their guidelines easy to follow? Thanks!

    Can’t make it through their sign up page.
    It comes up with various error messages on the information I’ve entered.
    Tried it through both Internet Explorer and Chrome and on the smartphone.
    Any suggestions?

    @Denise I’ve worked for them (independent contractor) for over a decade. It’s great! Payment is via check after you submit your invoice (around 2 months). Work is on Fridays around the theater schedule. Sometimes all day Sat or Sun for opens, or viewing a sneak preview on Thursday evening or a show Saturday (rare, depends on clients requesting specific theaters). You should read the instructions. If you miss something, you risk the client not accepting the data and non-payment for yourself. But overall, I get to set my schedule–usually I go in the evenings. The only annoying thing is for trailers, you need to get all formats. If that particular theater has 2D 3D shows in the same auditorium, you need to get both. I suggest picking a theater that doesn’t do 2D 3D in same auditorium often or one close by your regular work so you can drop by during lunch and finish it after work.
