I work for a number of mystery shops and these folks not only keep sending back reports for "lack of specificity" but they do so in a very snotty and obnoxious way.  You can only get into so much detail looking at a store or describing a tour of a facility.  What I seem to see here is that these people detail you to death - and then simply don't pay because "it's insufficient." 

I'm loathe to write this sort of note but between the cheapness and the nasty attitude, this place deserves a BBB reevaluation.

#1 Consumer Comment

Response to Bare Intl in general

AUTHOR: T Farrin - (United States of America)

I too have personal dealings with this company-much like some reported. 

Reporting to BBB is a waste of all of your time.  The state I live in is doing investigations to have these companies like Bare have shoppers be employees vs independent contractors.  Will this change anything-it will give shoppers some teeth in reference to how you and your money are treated and someone to go to when you have problems.  I have been through one of these investigations and it was interesting to say the least.

Personally Bare held onto my personal funds spent to do  po shops for 7 1/2 months- check was allegedly lost and I called several times to attempt to resolve it. Finally received check and held my breath until it cleared.  Head of hr tried to get me to keep working for them and I declined! As an employee this matter would have been resolved within 6o days.  Should you decide to turn them send to unemployment development dept in your state.

I left shopping 10 years ago for similar reasons--too long to get paid.
