Social Media Analyst (Former Employee) – Work at Home – 17 April 2017
I might have had a better experience if I had worked with Appen longer. I was let go after a short time with no real explanation. Still, they gave me a chance when I had no work experience, and I actually would probably recommend them to someone either trying to build some work experience or who needed some extra cash. I would not recommend them to anyone seeking steady full time work however, as the work provided, at least in my experience, was minimal.
Web Search Evaluator (Current Employee) – Work from home – 17 April 2017
Receive work via email and submit teams to earn cash based on work output. Self propelled work motivation to earn, team based work performances usually with people you already know. Very easy to stay in touch to strategies.

Working with Appen is new to me. The application process was smooth and work is also smooth. I felt and still feel refreshed because I'm able to manage my own time at the comfort of my home. The job isn't stressful, too. It's nice to not have a boss constantly checking behind me, which for me does not help with my productivity. I can't give a perfect score to everything because I think there's no perfect company.
flex hours, no boss, good salary
It can take a bit of time to get assisted with tech issues
Staffing Specialist (Current Employee) – Davao City – 28 March 2017
Working in Appen is a great experience. You get to work with professionals and people who are really enthusiastic about their jobs. The company takes care of the employees and work-life balance is one of the main values of the company.
Independent contractor (Former Employee) – Montgomery, AL – 16 March 2017
This job was great. However the project ended and so did the job. I would totally do it again. It was ideal because I did it from home. I worked 4 hours a day 4 days a week and one weekend day so the time put in was good.
Social Media Evaluator (Current Employee) – Miami, FL – 6 March 2017
It's very convenient if you are looking for a home-office opportunity, they pay punctually and they are organized considering that they work 100% online. I like the possibility of manage my own time and make an extra money from home. On the other hand, it's a very unstable job, you cannot predict if you will have tasks in the next day/ week, as long you rely on the system to work and you will just be paid if you got to work. Also they move me out constantly to a different project, what requests more time to get prepared (these hours are no paid) and adapt to the new content and metrics.

SOCIAL MEDIA EVALUATOR (Former Employee) – at home – 1 March 2017
The job was a bit hard to manage time-wise because the work hours had to be spread throughout the day. The work was fairly easy to do but because of how it was spread, it made it difficult to focus on other aspects of my life.
Web search evaluator (Current Employee) – Lucknow City, Uttar Pradesh – 6 January 2017
It is a time bound job with strict adherence to given guidelines. Incase of any technical issues the management was very prompt in resolving issues.Sufficient leeway was given in case of a prolonged absence to continue after. The overall process was fun to work on and I learnt how ads are evaluated on the web in terms of relevance for the customer.
Incentive plans on achieving quality and other parameters consistently.
Easy work but you can and will get fired for no reason
Social Media Evaluator (Former Employee) – from home – 4 January 2017
I worked as a social media evaluator for 2 months and then random one day got an email stating they had received sufficient project data from me and were terminating my contract. It wasnt being fired for lack of doing work or for bad quality of work, just sufficient project data. No other explanation was given. Work is easy but really repetitive. Good for some extra cash but don't rely on it because you will be fired for no reason.
Been doing it three weeks somewhat ok and now the program is not working almost everyday so the tech staff must be contacted and they don't respond quickly to your problem or create it so you can work again. Totally unreliable, seemed like it was too good to be true...well it is... Do not waste your time..Find people you can talk to for bosses who will be accountable..
Independent consultant under contract (Current Employee) – Remote – 3 December 2016
I work 4 weekdays and one weekend day. I became more of an analytical thinker since working with Appen. The hardest part of the job is the work can become repetitive. The most enjoyable part of the job is the flexibility.
Social Media Evaluator (Former Employee) – El Paso, TX – 30 November 2016
They make you take a test and you spend all this time studying for it which is a waste of time and its unpaid. It's training and you should get paid for it! I was terminated for no reason or explantation.
Major Social Media Platform Evaluator (Current Employee) – Bothell, WA 98011 – 8 November 2016
Nice work from home job! Interesting and fun work! I get paid for this, great! I enjoy what I do and it's great to do it from home. The work isn't difficult and the hours are flexible. The company so far is great to work for.
