Secret Shoppers

Every semester, Campus Dining Services recruits a number of students, faculty and staff members to take part in our Secret Shopper program. The program provides great insight into how our customers portray our operations, and is vital to our success.

What is a Secret Shopper?

A secret shopper is a person who has registered and was selected to shop at CDS operations and to observe how well we are meeting strategic goals.

What Will a Secret Shopper Do?

A different secret shopper will visit every Campus Dining Services operation each week for a total of 24 shops per semester. Secret Shoppers sign up for available positions online, and once the shop is complete, an online form is completed and submitted to Campus Dining Services.

The Ideal Candidate

• Student, staff, or faculty member
• Committed to the program for one semester
• Lives on campus or visits regularly
• A foodie who loves taking pictures of their meals
• Responsible, punctual and descriptive writer
