Interesting work and very decent pay. Got to know and learn about new products, also learned a bit about market research.
Took a bit of work to get accepted but totally worth it. Being a product tester is not as easy as it sounds, but after 2 or 3 projects it becomes easy and more fun. Another con is that there are no health benefits; also there's' no room for advancement, so this job is good only if you want to make good money quick.158

My experience with American Consumer Panels is too good. Some products will not use in United State market, but with "ACP" I have learned about many others product which is used in other market like in Europe and Japan. This is one of the best company, their staff is very passionate and professional. I would highly recommend this organizations’s facility to my friends, family and colleagues.
Nothing yet! Very little equity is offered to the key contributors..96

I tested a cordless vacuum, some gardening tools and cookware. It was exciting to use new products without having to buy them and instead being paid to use them!. I got to keep for free the cookware and the gardening tools.
I really can't think of any cons, except there is a lot of pressure to perform your duties, which would be expected of any other employer.70

If you like wasting time answering surveys all day, this is for you.
Well, it's a scam. I thought that since it's here on Glassdoor, then the company must be legitimate right? WRONG! They had me sign up for multiple survey sites (thank God I don't use this email account much) in order to get a better profile of me. Well, instead of getting my first product to test, I'm getting emails telling me to join them like I'm a new person. It's a shame that any telecommuting job that doesn't require experience is most likely a scam.379

Do NOT share ANY personal information with this business. It is not actually a business, it does not exist, it is a scam.
If this company contacts you via text link, that is a HUGE red flag!!! Also, any job position hiring over $20/hr with no experience or education required is an even bigger red flag! Their website is fake.21

My daughter told me this company was a scam, but she was surprised when I received my first direct deposit of $1,137.40 for 2 weeks of part-time work. I'm glad I can help my daughter now with her college expenses because I'm a single mother and I lost my job because the company I worked for 21 years closed its doors in our town last year. It's not easy to find a new job at my age! (I'm 57 now).
No such cons. for American Consumer Panels25

There seems little merit in this for the effort.
It is not as it appears! The job description makes it sound as if you are to receive products and write reviews of their performance. Instead, the immediate call is to sign up for two online survey engines. Once signed up and having the option to accept all kinds of cookies that mine your computer activities, you get bombarded with online surveys to complete for points or coupons. It asks for a good deal of time (of course, you can choose to answer the surveys or not... a couple of dozen a day) and offers small reward.73

None that I can see.
I applied at American-consumers-panels to test products and review services FOR CASH. They said I should fill out another company's survey to help compile a profile. Since then, I have received NO COMMUNICATION from ACP company, (despite several attempts via e-mail). Instead, all I get are surveys from this OTHER company to accumulate POINTS for REWARDS. These REWARDS can't help with the phone bill! I feel like I've been a victim of a bait-and-switch scam. I will be reporting you and American Consumer Panels to the FTC and BBB.134

Apparently SOMEONE has a real job with this company making money (I can only assume) by posting FAKE reviews as employees of this company.
It’s all a complete bait-and-switch operation. They claim that in order for them to decide if you “qualify” for the product testing job, that they supposedly first have to vet your interests, purchasing habits, etc., by sending you to their online survey sites to complete an unending slew of meaningless consumer surveys (which is how they REALLY make their money). After I posted a complaint about them with the BBB, they responded that it’s all part of their “application process.” It’s just another scumbag attempting to profit off of so many being out-of-work right now and desperately looking for LEGITIMATE employment opportunities that doesn't expose them to Covid-19. To reiterate what I said to them on the BBB site, “In a country where you can be anything, and THIS is what you choose?!”67
