Corporate Research International Continues Expansion in Canada

Mystery Shopping Company Broadens Reach in North America, Announces New Opportunities for Mystery Shopping Auditors

FINDLAY, OH--(Marketwire - Apr 12, 2011) - Corporate Research International (CRI), an international leader in mystery shopping and customer response surveys, continues to expand its mystery shopping capabilities throughout Canada and add new opportunities for those interested in becoming mystery shopping auditors. CRI's auditors are paid to assess the service and operations at leading retailers, restaurant chains and convenience stores worldwide. Currently, CRI employs more than 500,000 mystery shopping auditors across the globe.

"Mystery shoppers provide an unbiased way for a company to find out how a specific store or employee is performing, and our continued expansion is a wonderful opportunity for businesses in Canada to accurately measure the impact and impressions they are having on their customers," said Brad Holdgreve, CRI's vice president of sales. "It's also a great opportunity for anyone who is looking to make a little extra money doing the things they do every day -- shop at their favorite stores and eat at restaurants while getting paid to do it."

CRI does not charge a fee to become a mystery shopper. Once approved as an auditor, mystery shoppers can sign up for assignments online, and are responsible for thoroughly and accurately evaluating the performance of the accepted assignment and submitting a report back to CRI for processing. After each completed assignment, CRI provides compensation according to the listed commission rate for that specific job.

"At CRI, we are very selective about who we choose for our professional auditor database. We expect nothing but the best quality from our auditors," Holdgreve added.

CRI currently is looking for auditors in all areas of Canada including, Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Ontario, Saskatchewan, Toronto and Quebec.
