    Hi Roger,
    These sites pays with money. I’ve not seen a site that pays with gift cards or points…though that could always happen. Thanks for your comment!

    I have a question, do you get paid with money or with points to redeem for gift cards or something like that?

    Hi, just let you know I’m now working for Appen Butler Hill as a contractor (Social Media Evaluator), once you get one of their post, you can apply for another one except the crowdsourcing. As a Social Media Evaluator, you are only allowed work for one hour everyday (5 days a week min. or 7 days max.)So, you are only allowed to work 5-7 hours not 20 hours per week ( I wish they let me.) Thank you!

      I work for them too, but they let me work for 4 hours a day and I have to work 5 days a week too.

    Watch out. These companies are infamous for tracking your time, then telling you that you took more minutes on a project that you should have and that you have to adjust your invoice–a lot – those individual projects add up, as well as keeping you on the hook for training seminars, all unpaid of course. And they can drop you at any time without notice, for whatever reason. They justify this by saying you’re an independent contractor, yet they’re tracking your time and you have to use their invoice forms and their training. And at least one of these companies used to require 20 hours a week. I hope they face the same thing Uber did. It’s not a traditional scam, but all the same you won’t be making what they say you’ll be making. And you may end up just wasting a lot of time.

      That’s not truth. I’ve been working for LB for over 3 years now, and they’ve onle reviewed my timesheet three times. You cannot expect a company to not keep a record of your timing, and your just have be honest on the time you input.

    iSoftStone has a Contact Us page. I would also notify them on their Facebook page. I hope you hear from them soon!

    i need some more insight because i got invited to take the examination for 2 companies (iSoftStone and Leapforce) i don’t particularly understand the training, it seems complicated and i want to know which one i should go for. Any advice would be much appreciated.

      Where did you apply for iSoftStone? I applied for several ones but never got any response. No rejection or processing, nothing.

    Can you travel outside of your country of residence while working?

      I just asked that same question of Lionbridge. They said no because the toolbar may act differently. I think I may try it and if it doesn’t work try again with a VPN address from the US. I would like to be able to travel for a few months and still work.

    You can’t work for other companies when you are hired. They make this very clear when you apply.

      My contract with one of the above mentioned companies actually states that they understand that you might work with other companies….but, you are required to meet the minimum hour requirements. This is for the year 2016-17

    The info above re: Appen is not completely accurate. They do not pay you to train. Initial training is ~ 15 hours and it is unpaid. Please correct this.

    Hi Angela, I don’t see any reason why you’d have to remain exclusive with one company- each company probably retains its own unique clients. Hope that helps.

      It’s just that I heard Lionbridge didn’t like their independent contractors working for similar companies. I don’t know if this is still truth though. I was just wondering.

      I am contracted with Leapforce and it is explicitly stated in the work contract that you must remain exclusive. I have a friend that works for Lionbridge and from our conversations it is clear that both companies have the same client. I do not know if that applies to the other companies though.

    Is it possible to work for other similar companies while working for Leapforce or iSoftStone? Is it allowed?
