CR never accepts sample products from manufacturers on the products we test to generate our ratings. In fact, we pay full retail, purchasing the items from all the same places that consumers do. In this fiscal year we expect to spend more than $30 million dollars to test, rate and review 9,000 products and services.
As an Acquisition Agent, aka “Secret Shopper” for CR, you will coordinate efforts with our Market Analysts and Product Leaders to purchase and then deliver these predetermined items to our Yonkers headquarters.
This position is based in our Yonkers, New York office and is not eligible for remote work.
How You’ll Make An Impact:
In addition to making purchases on behalf of CR, the Acquisition Agent serves as the organization’s primary source of information as to product availability, ensuring our market analysts and writers have up to date on product placement in the marketplace.
In this position, you will be responsible for adhering to the scheduled purchasing of approximately 4-5 products per week, primarily in the small appliance category. As one of the product “experts” in your category, you may even have the opportunity to assist our technicians, on a as needed basis, with product testing.
