    “It was rewarding to see a restaurant that had problems fix them after I did multiple evaluations over the course of the year.”

    “I absolutely love being an EyeSpy evaluator. I am always looking forward to the next restaurant I get to explore…for FREE. The EyeSpy team is awesome, friendly and super responsive. I would recommend Eyespy to anyone that loves to dine out but does not want the hefty price that comes with it.”

    What are some of the basic guidelines for evaluators?
    Due to the nature of service evaluations, EyeSpy evaluators are asked to keep their evaluations confidential. Meaning, you can’t post on Facebook that you’re an evaluator or reveal this during an evaluation. Evaluators also have a certain amount of time in which they must submit their evaluations to receive credit for them, so evaluations must be completed in a timely fashion.

    Restaurant evaluations are the most common types of evaluations, however as an evaluator you may also attend a bar only evaluation or visit a hotel or movie house to evaluate service.
    How many restaurants could I visit in one week?
    You are welcome to take on as many evaluations as you can complete in a weeks time, some of our star evaluators have completed as many as five restaurant visits in one week.
    How do I get started doing evaluations?
    Once you’ve been accepted into the evaluator program, you’ll be assigned an evaluation to complete. Once your evaluation is submitted, it will be reviewed and processed. After a short trial period you’ll then be able to select evaluations from a list provided.
