If you’re looking for a p/t gig, Appen is still recruiting Voice Data Collectors. You’d be recording your voice while you read short prompts from an online phone application. Work from anywhere it’s quiet. No state hiring restrictions mentioned. Flexible schedules.
The pay isn’t mentioned, though Glassdoor employee reviews put Appen’s hourly pay range at $9 for Researchers to $30 for “Data Collectors.” That isn’t much help — we’d be surprised if this gig pays $30/hr., though anything’s possible — and we’re still looking for more data. We’ll update here if/when we learn more.
