BARE International is corrupt and extremely unethical. They employ of a fleet of low paid contractors to do perform site evaluations for generally less than minimum wage. For example, they will advertise a job that pays $15 for a project that requires 2 hours of work, gas mileage, parking and a (promise to be reimbursed) purchase. And then they will consistently not even bother to pay the contractors this piddly $15. Their management is well known throughout the industry for being unscrupulous. They do not reply to inquiries. On the flip side, they fully charge their customers for the results of these projects and collect large fees for their market research - which they obtain illegally and without pay.
There are many reputable market research organizations available. If you are reading this review, you are likely looking for such an engagement. Keep looking. BARE is a scam and not for you.

The bare international
1) Change the Rating from 6 to 1
2) Paid the partial amount after begging after six month, Initial refused to pay after agreed to pay partial and again deduction.
3) Threatening by email not to try any other bare office for money.
This is ridiculous. Management should involve such type of matter.

I worked for this company for almost 4 months but do not work for them anymore. They find really stupid reasons to not pay the evaluators. For ex - They have a glitch in their website where you can't provide all information due to "words" limit (It is very limited). So if they are not convinced with your brief comment (and you are bound to make it brief even when you have loads of useful information), they ask you to make changes. And you can't make changes because of word limit and then they say you did not provide enough information so we cannot pay you.
They also do not check your emails properly and accuse of not working properly.
It's like you have all the information with you but there are no proper means of sending that information and they do not pay you for the same reason. I want to ask them whose problem is it? The evaluators or theirs?
Also, if the store didn't perform well, they take out the frustration on your rating. If the store performed well they would give you 10/10 but it didn't, they would give you7/10. Ratings are based on how happy they feel about the evaluator based on store's performance

I am a Pensioner and have only recently ( January 2016) commenced doing Mystery Evaluations for Bare International.
As a Pensioner the extra Income is an added advantage!
I have done 3 Evaluations so far and look forward to doing more exciting ones for Bare International.
It is an excellent platform for Businesses and Companies to keep their Customer Services up to standard at all times and being able to keep their Staff in check.
The Staff at Bare International ,especially MANOK ABROL and AMIT JAGANI with whom I communicate with often, are very respectful and well mannered.
The Evaluations briefings are always to the point and precise.
I hope that we will be able to do more Evaluations in our Hospitality Field in South Africa as this field needs much improvement,
Thank you Bare International, looking forward to more exciting Evaluations in future.

I cannot belive that after doing so much work for them and me spending so much money on petrol Doing visits for them and now they are telling me that my photos are downloaded from the Internet. Just because they don't want to pay me and they don't even pay transport cost not even my car repairs. All that they offer is 5 . People don't ever settle for less ,companies like bare will use you so don't do anything less than 20 .They will abuse for small change of money. YOU WILL WORK THEY WILL ACCUSE YOU OF FRAUD,U WILL TRAVEL FOR THEM AND NEVER GET PAID.

Bare international has been associated with most of the major international brands as well as leading national brands which makes the company a leader in the mystery market research company in India. It has always been a enlightening experience to work for Bare and knowing the kind of work they put in to help the businesses grow. It is always better when you get to know about your favorite brands in detail and to get to evaluate your favorite brand is just like icing on a cake. It is fun working with Bare! :)

I have been working as a shopper for Bare International for almost 4 years,
I registered as a shopper for several mystery shopping companies and
Bare is my favourite. They have never fail me in terms of payment.
Payment is always on time. Scheduling and timing is always accurate,
and conducive for me. It is easy to get in contact with project
manger's, and Quality Controller's/Validators via Skype message, Email
and phone calls.
Project manager's sometimes tend to ignore Emails and skype messaging,
Quality Controller's often repeat questions you clearly stated at the
on the report especially pictures as queries.
I rate Bare International as No 1 mystery shopping company in the
world. I give them 99.9% over 100%.

I have worked for BARE International for over 5 years now. They are a great company to work for and I perform mystery shopping assignments for a number of large international brands including Puma, Harley Davidson and Microsoft. I whole heatedly recommend this company if you are interested in becoming a Mystery Shopper.
Review by JGibby Oyer4 years ago
At the beginning, when introduced to the mystery shopping i found it weird and couldn't imagine myself doing that job but with BareInternational it was very simplified and well organized in a way of giving us all the data & support needed to succeed in our mystery shopping. Again & again I Like being a BareInternational mystery shopper.
