DO NOT Work For This Company
Web Search Evaluator (Former Employee) – Fayetteville, NC – 17 May 2017
For about a month, I went through their application process. This includes applying, taking an unpaid assessment test (which takes about 8 hours to complete), getting a background check, and filling out an I9. After all of this, I was finally hired on. However, my start date was pushed back almost a week. Once I was able to actually start, the system didn't even work. It was either telling me that the page was forbidden, or that I didn't have any tasks to complete. I sent an email asking for help, and didn't get a response until a few days later. This means I lost all of those hours that I could be working. I was able to fix the problem and work for ONE day. After this one day, the system never worked again. I sent multiple emails asking for help, until today, when I was FIRED. I literally only worked one day for Appen and I was fired. They said it was because "I didn't meet their quality standards". They expect you to be conformists and rate ads the EXACT way they do, or they fire you. If they feel like an ad would be "Very Promising" but you feel like it would only be "Somewhat Promising", kiss your job goodbye.
Don't bother wasting your time with this company. I spent a month of my time preparing for this job, and it was all for nothing.
Worst management ever, worst customer service ever, expect you to have the same opinions as them on ads or you get fired, system never works, shortage of tasks every single day
