secret shopper information...

Shoptalk conducts evaluations in Washington, Oregon and Idaho. Most of the work involves shopping property management employees to evaluate their performance on the phone, in-person and via the internet. We also report on the appearance and condition of the community, as well as the apartments.

Shoppers are required to provide an accurate, unbiased account of their entire experience. All reports must contain specific, descriptive details in order for the client to visualize each shopper's experience from beginning to end.

Our clients use these shopping reports for evaluating their own employees, prospective employees and their competition. Complete accuracy is of utmost importance as our clients use the results to make employment changes and implement training programs.
