Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
You have to constantly work on HITS to be able to work on higher paying ones and also get certified for most. You also have to maintain a 98% average to get picked for a lot of HITS. Side Hustle and Practice at best for maintaining computer skills or learning new ones.

Pros

flexibility, remote anywhere

Cons

pay takes awhile

Great work place

The opportunity to work from home, compete different tasks, and help customers with a variety of ways online is so amazing for me personally. It has helped me in my typing skills and earn some money on the side, i honestly enjoy my time with Amazon Mechanical Turk.

It is a great company to work with because you work from home but the pay can be quite low if there are not very many projects posted by the requester

I enter general information into their database is small to large batches of HITS. On some days, there may be up to 100 requested with 10,000 hits and on other days, especially after a holiday, there can over 300 requesters that have submitted and uploaded 100,000 hits. The money made depends on how long you actually want to work but the pay can average between $10 to $15 per hour.

Freelance Work

You won't make a lot of money doing Mechanical Turk jobs, but you can improve your skills. Mechanical Turk is a crowd-sourcing platform. Jobs consist of data entry, transcription, academic studies, surveys and more. There are jobs that require technical skills such as coding. This is a good way to make money while searching for a full time job.

Good for supplemental income

Not a full time job, but a fun way to make supplemental income. The work is interesting, and doesn't take much time. The pay is pretty low, but it's fairly easy.

Convenient but Poor Compensation

Mechanical Turk offers working at your own convenience, but also at your own risk. The pay offered for time invested is not nearly enough, but if you have nothing else to do with that time you might as well be paid for it. The ability to have your funds put into your bank account, or as credit on Amazon is a nice perk, but perhaps the only one.

Great for passive earning

It's a convenient way to make some pocket money, but the pay is poor. Some tasks look like they pay well, but it takes a while for you to work to become qualified for the higher paying tasks.

Data Entry

Not much advancement and takes time to really earn anything. However you can work at your own pace and own time for however many hours you would like. But does not get paid very much. For instance, in one hour of work I got paid $1.05.

Pros

Can work anywhere and anytime.

Cons

Paid not very much

Low wages

The wages were way too low for tasks performed. You had to work many hours just to get a little money. It was kind of a waste of time. Some improvements have been made since I stopped doing it. Different wages are offered at a higher rate, some are still the same.

Pros

Easy, fun work

Cons

Too much time to spend for a little amount of compensation.

Legit and reliable extra cash online. Not as scam!

Amazon Mechanical Turk has been helpful in having some legit extra cash coming in. There are so many scam websites and some take a long time to cashout. With Mechanical Turk, they do pay right away and there is usually something to do, to earn.

Pros

Is 24 X 7 and they pay reliably.

Cons

None.
