    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    Nothing yet! Very little equity is offered to the key contributors..

    Advice to Management

    Keep going - it's working! And, THANK YOU for the opportunity.

    I have been working at American Consumer Panels full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Management should explain better how the application process works.
    Management should communicate more frequently with their product testers.

    I have been working at American Consumer Panels (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There seems little merit in this for the effort.

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Advertise it for what it is.

    Pros

    Do NOT trust these over reviews! They are not real!

    Cons

    No legitimate company asks you to sign up through 3rd party survey websites. They say it's to establish your consumer profile, but if that was true, it would be directly on their website...

    They have NO company profile on BBB (checked again as of this review).

    They are either collecting your demographics and selling it, or they are using it to simply earn an affiliate commission.

    Putting all of this together, it seems really hard to believe that you could actually earn $25 - 45 per hour.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to trick people! Especially for those who are really trying to look for a job.

    I have been working at American Consumer Panels full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lol. There are none. Can I give it a zero star rating?

    Cons

    There is no job. I am positive this is an elaborate ruse to trick people out of their information. After giving them my information, I did receive a confirmation email, reminding me to go make a profile on two separate sites, both of which offer to give rewards for survey completions and what not. As I filled them up, I realized that there was no way ACP could receive my information from them since the only connection between ACP and the other site was my email address, so I quit. Two days later, I received an email stating that they have recently started a new partnership with another information selling site, InboxDollars, and that I should go and create a profile there to "increase my chances to become an In-Home-Usage tester." Needless to say, that's not going to happen.

    Advice to Management

    Obliterate this scam of a site, please and thanks.

    Pros

    NONE They masquerade as a legitimate product testing site, and the switch... they redirect to you sign-up with a bunch of online survey companies and collect a referral fee for sending you there.

    Cons

    American Consumer Panels is a scam. There are no products to test. DO NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS
