    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Appen part-time

    Pros

    None that are worth mentioning.

    Cons

    I went through their unpaid training only to be able to work 1 day at 9.00 an hour for only 4 hours. They never had available tasks after my first day and when I would contact management, I was told to be patient and that they were investigating the issue. This went on for several weeks. I was told to report my hours as NO WORK AVAILABLE, which I did. Then I just received an email terminating my employment due to not being able to meet their accuracy metrics. Impossible! I only worked for 1 day and that was almost a month ago! Clearly they knew there was an issue on their end as to the many emails I received regarding such, so instead of correcting the problem, I was fired. I have never been fired in my life!!!! I have seen others posting similar stories to mine and I can't help but to think there is something fishy going on. It was a complete waste of my time and I don't recommend anyone else making the same mistake!
