Independent Contracting Agent (Current Employee) – Clinton Township, MI – March 24, 2016
You can make your own hours, but the work is very sporadic. This could be a great second job that only requires a couple hours of you time here and there. The feedback is at times vague. It may be hard to understand why you're being marked down for your scoring, making it harder to correct the mistakes.
Independent Contractor- Search Engine Evaluator (Current Employee) – Anywhere with wifi – February 17, 2016
Excellent for those with hectic schedules. As long as you do a good job you should be able to hang around. Hardest part of the job is having the self discipline to work from home and set your own hours.
Independent contractor (Current Employee) – Internet Based – November 10, 2014
If ever there were a job that provided the freedom to work at your own pace and have time off for family, this is it. It takes a disciplined and rigidly structured personality to take advantage of the opportunities offered by Leapforce Work At Home. Unfortunately, for certain individuals, there can be a disconnected feeling which comes from not working among other people that gets to be too much.
freedom to make your own schedule and spend time with family
feelings of isolation and being cut off from the rest of the world
Working at Leapforce has been a great learning opportunity. Some of the knowledge I've gained has helped me with web design & development and user experience. It's been interesting going from unacceptable ratings to excellent ratings.
Advice to Management: Decrease the duration of restrictions for poor rater performance? Increase work availability for international raters? Allow US raters to work abroad? Continue the great work with the Path to Better Rating series :)
great complementary income, work-life balance, gain knowledge
pay could be higher, capped hourly rate, slow payments
Search Engine Evaluator (Current Employee) – Pleasanton, CA – May 5, 2014
LeapForce is 100% dynamic in that you can work at any time that you like, as long as there are tasks to be completed. It's honestly rare to log on and be greeted with no tasks. The work does require some reading in order to fully understand, but not too much. Once you get into the swing of things, it's not so bad. The pay is decent, but you're paid monthly on a dynamic pay schedule. Meaning that you never know exactly what day you will receive your money. I feel it's a great supplementary option/
Independent cotractor (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – May 4, 2014
This job has saved me. I cannot tell you how much I have appreciated this opportunity. I have been working as an independent contractor with Leapforce for 1.5 years. There are two downsides. The first is that tasks are not always available. The second is that you always feel like you might be fired. Even if you get decent reviews. If they aren't AMAZING reviews, well, your contract may not be renewed. It can be very scary.
Search Engine Evaluator (Independent Contractor) (Current Employee) – Home – December 11, 2013
Being a search engine evaluator isn't too shabby as long as you can personally manage your time/schedule. There aren't any necessary tools you must have around you like most jobs require and you can work at your own pace. Only feel like working an hour right now? Work an hour right now. Feel like going 8 hours today? Have at it. Pay isn't too bad for the work done.
work at your own pace, create your own schedule, simple once you get the hang of things and use the tools provided, company chat is great for help and advice from other contractors
you're only paid once a month, there's no set pay day -- you could be paid on the 12th, the 15th, the 22nd, etc.
Search Engine Evaluator (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – September 26, 2013
Work from home contract positions are constantly available. There's a lot of unpaid work at this position because you have to keep up with voluminous and ever-changing documentation and rules. There are also a lot of unpaid "optional" practice exercises. Job requires strong research skills and the ability to quickly sift through large amounts of data.
flexible, work pretty much as much or as little as you want
Daily routine consists of checking for available tasks and completing them in time alotted. I learned how to be self-motivated as it's a remote job. Moderators were friendly and encouraged employees. Co-workers were extremely helpful in a social portal/chat room setting. Staying focused when there are a lot of repetitive tasks is a challenge. Working from home on your own terms was the most enjoyable part of this job.
This is a great employment option for individuals needing extra income or desiring a legitimate work from home position. When there is work available you are able to set your own schedule, and tasks are not very difficult if you have read through all the manuals. The downside of the job is that there are not always tasks available, and the workload is very unpredictable.
As a search engine evaluator at Leapforce you get to earn money at home sitting in your PJ's, evaluating URL links pertaining to search queries. That sounds great and it is but that's pretty much where the pro's end. There is barely any support or contact from the company itself and you don't get paid for studying extensive material required to do the job correctly. In addition to that you get paid once a month, which for me took a while to get used to. You are also expected to log all your time spent working yourself, which seems odd since you're logged in to their site and they could easily keep track of it for you. The pay itself isn't bad and is calculated per minute.
work at home, decent pay
repetitive, long pay periods, no support or communication
Virtual work enviroment making it ideal for someone with a strict time line.
Consultant (Former Employee) – Virtual Work Environment – March 12, 2014
Flexible work schedule allows to fit into your schedule in a virtual work environment. The work involved can be tedious and requires an analytical mind set. Managing your time is the most valuable lesson learned.
Search Engine Evaluator (Former Employee) – Home – June 12, 2012
This company pays their employees very well, but you never will talk to a person on the phone, or even necessarily by email. You will be told when you are doing something wrong, but rarely told when you are doing something right. It's limited communication that make this job fairly difficult.
There is some versatility to being a private contractor for LeapForce
Data Analyst (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – August 7, 2014
Leapforce has provided excellent communication and training, and made the process of collaborating with other Analysts very easy. However I really miss actually seeing and working with my coworkers in person on a daily basis. Working from home does provide a lot of perks, but the stability of having a sort of home away from home in an actual office rather than a virtual office is much more appealing. This also provides a stable and steady work flow as well as benefits. It must be said though that LeapForce has been one of the most cutting edge companies that I've worked for. This position has made me so much more aware of how many more options are available to us in research and communications which have already made me a much more efficient and versatile personality.
many perks and versatility; excellent pay when work is high, options for overtime at certain times of year.
disconnect from normality of coworkers, stable work flow, requires dedications and personal discipline.
