Their clients have a range of schedules. They claim there are shifts available from nights and weekends to even your standard Monday through Friday 9-5 bank hours. After speaking with an ARC representative I have learned their scheduling system is set up where you provide them your availability and they in response do their best to accommodate your needs with theirs. Here is exactly what was told to me via email:
“Mystery Shopping schedules are set up two weeks to one month in advance. Agents supply availability and we schedule them for for work/calls during those times. Call Auditor scheduling requires a 24 hour turn around. Here again agents let us know their availability and we schedule according to availability.”
