Yesterday I got a call to do a $40 taste survey. When I arrived there was a ton of people in the waiting room. Personally, I have never seen it this way before at this particular location.
I signed in and stand out in the overflowing hallway.
I didn't mind because as I told you back in my post "Make More From Your Side Hustle " I love spotting out and talking to participants who are regulars.
It wasn't long before someone came up to me and started a small conversation about how crowded it was. I agreed and proceeded with my all time information seeking question
"Do you do these often?"
"Yes" he said in a low and stand offish tone.
I assured him he had nothing to worry about. I didn't work for the company and that there was no way I would be competing with him.
"I'm a black, 20 something year old female there is now way we would be competing for a survey since they pick via gender, age, race and whole bunch of other things."
He laughed and released a company that I have never heard of and said he once walked out of a survey $1000 richer.
What?? Are you serious?
As soon as he said that, like luck would have it he was called in to take his survey. I couldn't ask follow up questions or anything. I googled the name and came up with nothing.
Had I heard him wrong?
Possibly since he was whispering like we were being spied on.
Was he lying?
Possibly, but for what reason?
I'm determined to fiigure it out. I will continue to do my research and report back to you on a later date.
