FAQ – Being An Independent Mystery Rider

Can anybody be a mystery rider?

Yes…but we’re looking specifically for enthusiastic individuals who share our vision assisting our clients in improving their customer’s experience. For that reason, we need reliable individuals with great report writing skills. You must pay attention to details and be able to retain and retrieve accurate information. You’ll also need access to a computer/internet to sign-up as a rider, find assignments and submit your reports. If you are all of those things, just click the button above or below to complete the sign-up form.

When can I start?

Once you sign-up, you can see what jobs are available in your area. If there is something now, you can get started right away! If you do not see any assignments, they are either assigned or we currently do not have any in your area.

I have a full-time job…can I do this in my spare time?

Absolutely! The beauty of mystery riding is that you can pick the rides you want, based on your schedule.

How much and when will I get paid?

The payment for each job will depend on the client, how long it takes you to conduct and report, and the complexity of the job. The payment and any reimbursement for required purchases, like tickets, will be shown to you before you accept the job. Payment and reimbursement are made through PayPal and direct deposit at the end of the following month in which the job was completed.

Why do you need my social security and ID?

We do not need it right now. If you are not comfortable with giving that to us online, you can skip that question. However, in order to be assigned a ride, we will need your SSN and ID. We ask for this information to avoid riders that submit false reports under fictitious names. Plus we need it for payment verification purposes. We can’t pay a ghost!

What does it mean that evaluators are “independent contractors”?

Independent contractors are defined as “independent” because they are NOT an employee of the company for which they are conducting work. They do so on the basis that they may accept or decline any potential work that is available to them and they can work for as many mystery rider organizations as they would like.

I received a check/money order of a considerable dollar amount from your company to complete a shop. What are my next steps?

ACPVIEW does not mail out checks/money orders. Nor do we prepay for shops! We pay only via PayPal or direct deposit AFTER you have successfully completed and submitted a riding assignment. Do not deposit the check/money order as this is most likely is a SCAM. There is no need to contact ACPVIEW as we have nothing to do with this, even though the scammers may be using our name.
