I would like to thank you for your interest in becoming an Independent Contractor with Ardent Services, Inc. Ardent Services, Inc. provides comprehensive evaluation services including Customer Service, Merchandise Integrity, Store Standards, Competitor Performance Comparison, Competitor Price Comparison, Associate Integrity and Associate Morale. Companies' bottom lines, gross margins, and customer loyalty is impacted greatly by associate morale, customer service, merchandise standards, price levels, and internal theft. Having a report card that is accurate, current, and at your fingertips is paramount. Ardent Services provides the data needed to evaluate these areas properly in an effort to attract and retain customers, build sales, and increase profits. We do this by using Mystery Shoppers to evaluate their products and/or services at our customer's request.

If selected, you will be given various assignments in fast food restaurants, retail stores, airlines, automobile dealerships, hotels and various other types of shops. You would be offered these assignments as an Independent Contractor, not an employee. Confidentiality is imperative to our clients and to us. Please be sure to review carefully the section on confidentiality in the Independent Contractor Agreement. You may not pass your assignments onto anyone else. This is strictly prohibited.

You are responsible for paying your own taxes. A form 1099 will be sent to you if you have earned a minimum of $600 in a calendar year from shopping fees. If the fees total less than $600 and you do not receive a 1099 form from Ardent Services, Inc., you will still be responsible for all taxes on moneys you've earned.

Please keep in mind, you would be an Independent Contractor, not an employee so if you ever have to file for unemployment insurance, you are not to list Ardent Services, Inc. as an employer. If you are chosen for an assignment, you will be contacted by Ardent Services, Inc. and will have the option to accept or decline the assignment. If you accept the assignment, you will be given a range of times and dates to perform the evaluation. If you accept, you have guaranteed Ardent Services, Inc. that the shop will be completed during that time frame.

Fees will be paid only for those reports acceptable to our clients. The evaluation, after completion must be submitted within 24 hours of completion. Late reports are considered invalid you will not be paid for late reports. If your report falls below our expectations, you will not be offered future assignments. Our commitment to our customers is our number one priority and it is our expectation that you, as an Independent Contractor for Ardent Services, Inc. would have that same commitment.

Yes, I Accept the Agreement
