    I worked at Opinion Search part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours as well as very regular hours. I was among the top 2 tiers in daytime so hard to compare to evening workers, but in daytime you really did get consistent hours and management didn't bother you to take on extra shifts or question why you wanted less. You did the surveys so many times you almost memorized them (this was really only good in helping with your quality). Almost never got demerit points or quality demerit points, most of which were for attendance. The supervisors, monitors and co-workers were very friendly. My supervisor in particular was great, took interest in your productivity and performance. Very supportive and encouraging. Opportunity to receive bonuses, which I did receive with fair regularity.

    I know many people didn't have to opportunity to, but working onsite was fantastic. We would get a slight pay increase for those shifts and get to go out to locations in the city to conduct interviews in person. My supervisor for these shifts was exceptionally friendly and supportive. Very understanding about hours and did not push if you said no.

    Cons

    Very boring. Some respondents are very hard to handle, I even cried a few times out of stress but never felt like the supervisors were aware of cared about this. After the change to working at home they became very stingy about breaks and bathroom time. I remember making sure I ran to the bathroom or coffee maker and purposefully taking slightly longer to edit open-ends just to get a slight break for a moment. Only minimum wage (110% of min wage as a home worker, which is by law). Some supervisors could be a bit rough / uncaring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let people get up and get a drink of water / go pee while not cutting into our break time!! I would strongly encourage a buddy system or group meeting once a week or so to discuss issues with the surveys or bad experiences with respondents / potential respondents. It becomes very high stress to deal with and we should be able to take a minute to calm down and chat with someone rather than trudge right back into the grind.
