    I worked at Leapforce as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Complete flexibility, working remotely, setting your own hours, limited need to communicate with higher-ups. The pay is also decent for an entry-level online job.

    Cons

    Random reviews that are way too specific to capture overall quality, lots of training and reviewing material required (unpaid) before beginning work, work caps, limited work availability restricts actual flexibility, no culture, some online community in chatrooms

    Advice to Management

    Work with you independent contractors, try to help them improve

    I worked at Leapforce as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work from anywhere; Flexible hours; decent pay; responsive support staff

    Cons

    Have to follow strict work rules; paid monthly; at times difficult; can have hours cut at any time; can be put on probation at any time; can be let go anytime

    Advice to Management

    This job needs to pay more money or the rules need to be less strict. Or the training should be paid. The job was too difficult for the amount of money.

    I have been working at Leapforce as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    •Flexible, work from home hours. Some of the projects can be worked while doing your primary job.
    •Can work multiple projects at once.
    •Easy work.
    •Hourly pay is well above minimum in most states.
    •Working the ultra classified projects is kind of fun.

    Cons

    •Instructions are unclear.
    •It's not always clear how much you'll earn on a particular project.
    •Qualification process can be a pain.
    •Pay is listed as hourly, but some projects will only be a few minutes a day.
    •Not many projects available all the time.

    Advice to Management

    •Give us detailed instructions and examples for each project.
    •Make it clear which projects only require a few minutes a day during the qualification process instead of it being a nasty surprise.

    Pros

    -Work at home
    -Work any time you want as long as there is work available
    -Decent effort at making sure their constantly changing requirements are understood for doing the job

    Cons

    -You aren't an employee, so you can't use them as a reference. You aren't afforded any employee protections and you have to keep track of and pay your own self-employment taxes.
    -Work isn't always consistent. There may be weeks where only a couple of hours of work are available each day.
    -You can lose your 'job' at any point if you don't meet the minimum quality expected.

    Advice to Management

    Start hiring people as employees, not contractors.

    I have been working at Leapforce as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay beats being a cashier. You can work whenever you want. The work isn't difficult.

    Cons

    Being so simple and shallow, the work quickly becomes very tedious. You're limited to 40 hours a week. Payment is once monthly. There doesn't seem to be a path for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    There need to be bonuses for raters who have been working for several years with consistently high quality ratings. Even college students will eventually refuse to put up with this type of dead-end job.

    Pros

    Good news is that you can work from home, work your own hours, and they pay on time.

    Cons

    You have to spend many many hours studying the guidelines and taking quizzes before even being offered a contract. None of that is paid. After you do get a contract you have to spend a lot of time (unpaid) keeping up with changing guidelines and rules. The hourly pay would be decent if you didn't have to spend so many hours doing simulations, learning new guidelines which can change weekly, and sticking to their timeline for tasks. If you spend 15 minutes on an 8 minute task, you only get paid for 8 minutes. In addition, the weekly chats are virtually useless, but you're expected to attend (and not get paid for it) anyway. It's a lot of work for not a lot of pay.

    I worked at Leapforce part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    a good wage and the the freedom to set your own hours is outstanding. the most important thing for me was being able to work from home. the subject matter was interesting, too.

    Cons

    sometimes there was no work available and there was not much contact with the company. some people wold find the too repetitive but I did not. overall, it is a good job.

    Advice to Management

    more contact with employees and I can't believe there isn't enough work to keep everyone busy.
