Client Services Manager (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – 13 November 2017
RetailData grew significantly over the last few years and they are still operating like a small company even though there are over 2,000 employees across the country. Management is out of touch and there are some serious issues with how the company functions from a personnel perspective as well as a technology perspective. They didn't grow gracefully and that is what is hurting them now.
Lead Data Collector (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – 18 September 2017
This job is fine if you don't mind working 12-14 hours a day, every day with no time off. I could go on an on about that aspect, but I won't. The real problem is the fact that management has no idea what they are doing. Turnover is extremely high as well. This job is fine for something short term, but don't expect to have any promises made kept.

The job is decent, very flexible, and not many hours. Most of the time you are walking around looking for items. Sometimes it can be hard to find the items in a timely manner and you have to worry about the store employees

Scanning products and inputting the price of that product. Going to different retail stores and learning about products and prices is very interesting. You learn who is exactly cheaper for the same products you would buy everyday. It was very fun but also very physical! Lots of lifting of 1000's of products of different sizes and weights and requires you to get faster and faster everyday for you to make more money. Lots of traveling from store to stores and miles own your vehicle. The hours vary on how fast you are and good you do your job. There is a lot of repetition scanning the same store and same products weekly.
Good money if you are very efficent and interested in working.

Working here is cool. You go to different stores to scan prices of different items the retailer is looking for. You just have to very careful because if an employee of the store sees you scanning products you can be put out of the store.
Data Collector (Former Employee) – Madera, CA – 16 August 2017
Working with this company can be fun, the jobs are repetitive so working in a store and knowing what you'll see every week makes the job go faster. I learned a lot about how retailers operate, how they sell their merchandise. I have learned to how to be more stealthy in stores because I did a lot of under cover jobs. My district manager was great, they knew what the data collectors went through because they had worked out in the field as well. Sometimes the hardest part was trying to finish a job that had a short deadline and the client put out a large list to be completed. Also if you have back or foot injuries this job could irritate those injuries if you don't pace yourself. I enjoyed traveling at no expense for this job. Free car rental, plane ticket and Hotel. Any meals or gas bought out of pocket while traveling for the company was paid for. If you are good at time management and working independently you could make it at this job.

i recently returned to work for this company,in the past when i worked for them there was alot of work,when i returned the only job they had was secret shopping walmart on the weekends,the job only paid $40 and if the walmart managment kicked you out they expected you to go back to the same store until the work was finished
no jobs and stress of getting kicked out of stoers
Field Data Collector (Current Employee) – Asheville, NC – 23 May 2017
The job itself is great. You get to make your own hours just as long as you complete assignments before the deadline. You work alone, no co-workers to interact with...usually. You get to work different locations and get compensation for mileage and drive time. You're paid per piece, so the faster you go, the more money you make. Management kills the whole deal. They don't listen when you have a problem. You get scripted responses and no resolution. Being called at the last minute to complete someone else's assignment. Expected to make deadlines even when sick. No communication. Last minute information. It can be tough on your back. The repetitive reaching to top shelves and bending to bottom shelves on particular jobs can become a problem.
