Consultant (Former Employee) – Butler, PA – 4 October 2017
Did reviews of Facebook ads for an hour each day. Very easy and relaxed job. Sometimes had issues with the rating tool that got worse as time progressed. Management would claim to introduce new tools/features that never came.
AD EVALUATOR (Former Employee) – Work from home – 5 October 2017
Almost no communication from management and response time to emails is slow, if you get a response at all. Training does not align with monthly training sets and will confuse even the most intelligent. Work is inconsistent and you can go days with no tasks to complete. No, you are not paid for the time you try to work. Remember, you are expendable and unimportant.
Independent Consultant/Contractor (Current Employee) – Chula Vista, CA – 26 September 2017
Simple work to do when given the opportunity, but you are under a contract and you will only work until they feel your services are no longer needed. On the job, you can choose when to work at any time of the day. However despite the work being simple and easy to do, it will eventually get boring and repetitive over time, so just keep reminding yourself that you're getting paid to do what you are doing. One of the best work at home jobs I've ever done.
Work anytime of the Day, Flexible Schedule
Repetitive Work, Working under a contract means they can terminate it at anytime, Not permanent.
Work essentially was 4 hours of rating content retrieved from the social media pages of my friends pictures, memes, posts, videos etc. This was alright as it was nice to work from home however when the evaluations came in I realized I was marked wrong on one of the audits when all the criteria was met. The man,agers were contacted via email so communication was not the best, so reaching the "higher ups" was a bit of a hassle.
Great pay, some what flexible, Working from home.
Lack of transparency and effective ratings given to the work presented to them .
Social Media Evaluator (Current Employee) – Remote – 12 September 2017
Overall it is a good company to do work for. The work itself becomes dull and repetitive very quickly. It is quite unfortunate not to get promoted to a better position and it is even more unfortunate not getting paid more to offset the lack of benefits.
Can not advance, no benefits, not enough hours and not enough pay to compensate for the lack of benefits
Working as an independent contractor for Appen was wonderful, it is a perfect additional employment for anybody looking for extra income. It didn't take too much of my time up and the rate was great. I enjoyed working for them and regret that the project I was working on has ended.
INDEPENDENT CONSULTANT (Current Employee) – Anywhere – 25 August 2017
Works well with any schedule, very flexible straight-forward job. I can do it no matter what else I have available for me that day. The only downsides I feel I run into are the repetitiveness of the job.
Social Media Evaluator (Current Employee) – Remote – 18 August 2017
I worked for around 4 hours a day and it was enjoyable since it was remote. However, because the job is contract, you can be terminated without notice and it does not offer any sort of job security or advancement, at least not for me.
Independent Contractor (Current Employee) – Home Based – 15 August 2017
My take on Appen is that it's a great company to work for. However if you're looking for this to be a full time job perhaps this isn't the place for you to work. I do enjoy the free time I have and being able to spend more time with my kids rather than being away all day from them. It allows me to be very flexible when other contracts come up.
Search Media Analyst (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – 9 August 2017
Appen is very hands off, they send you a link and expect you to just get through everything on your own. When you can work is extremely flexible, but be prepared to be bored to tears with the job itself.
