    What's hard about these is its not always photos. Some of them require a tape measure or other equipment, and that's a lot more obvious. If the client wants to be discreet, they should ask for discreet methods. If the employees don't realize I'm there for an audit, it wouldn't hurt to find out after they question me. Even if i tell them I'm there for an audit, I've already started taking pictures, and then maybe they'll be more vigile in the future which will make the client happy right? It makes sense on most of the stuff, but measuring tape audits and alike make us stand out way more than just pictures.

    I agree 100%..And leaving us with no options to explain why we are there is really rather upsetting..There are other apps that give you letter of authorization to be on the premises to do the task we are being asked to do..Some of us live in small communities so it's really hard to go back to these stores after we have been asked to leave

    Ok, that answers how I should handle the situation. But, if an employee asks me to leave, and I am only able to get about half of the requested photos, will I still receive the full payment? I took time out of my day, and used my gas to travel to the store. And I was ready and willing to get all of the necessary photos. It isnt my fault that the employee would not allow me to do so.
    It would be much easier to get it done if I could upload photos from my phone. Then I could enter the store, take all the necessary photos, and then leave right away. Then I could upload the photos and answer all the questions for each one outside of the store, where the employees cant see me. If I am in the store for 10-20 mins and taking pictures every 2-3 mins, the employees tend to watch me and they get very curious about what I am doing. But if I go in and take all the pictures at once, it looks much less suspicious, and the employees dont have as much time to watch me, and decide they’re gonna come tell me to stop taking pictures.
