  • Fill out your shopper profile. The Shopper Sign Up Form will prompt you to provide some personal information which will help us to create your shopper profile and stay in touch regarding shops that may interest you.
  • Write your sample narrative. As part of the application process, you’ll be asked to write a sample narrative of a recent service experience. The sample narrative should "tell the story" of this shopping service experience, should use proper grammar, and include lots of details.
  • Agree to the Independent Contractor Agreement (ICA). In order to apply to be a mystery shopper with CSE, shoppers MUST sign an Independent Contractor Agreement (ICA).
