    Not heard back about the phone recording task, so looks like I did not get that one, grrr ........

    I DID get the Voice Data Task and had a project on my dashboard which I attempted earlier in the week but on the last section (30 items to do with 3 x separate descriptions to each one) for some reason it did not seem to save the last answer and would not let me submit it or anything. I raised a support ticket but have not heard anything yet.

    On a more positive note I have been asked to take the WSE test, so fingers crossed please that I pass it and do get some regular work with them :)

    Just looked at the WSE video with tips and examples and read the instructions and guidelines that Appen have sent me prior to doing the 'Searches' test.
    To be honest I thought there would be more information and the chance of doing some examples or something. Not confident enough with the examples shown.
    Do I get more details with the actual test? I can only take it once - in one sitting so need to be as prepared as possible.

    Looking at Appen employee WSE reviews is not very encouraging either - not flexible, inconsistent grading, unrealistic targets, intensive exam to take before you can even try to get any work. Will ignore them all for now, and hopefully attempt it at least .................................

    Any tips please?

    Also, just got an email about a UK Speech Collection Project from Appen.

    This has to be done on an Android device only so is not suitable for me. Might be worth checking your emails/dashboard etc.

    There was a formstack link in my email but I'm not sure if I am allowed to divulge it as the email was intended for me personally. Perhaps @Jon could advise me, if anyone wants it?

    Does the form look like a general one when you click through to it?

    Can someone help, please. I have applied for work from home jobs on the Appen website. On my dashboard it says "received, under review". Been like that for a while now. Does this mean I am still in with a chance? I don't know how it works as I have never applied before. Thx.

    Welcome @Kay Ashton :) I've only recently joined Appen myself and I think mine also said 'under review' for a while (I'm hopeless with time-scales).

    I don't think they are particularly quick though, I submitted a support ticket on the 8th July and am still waiting for them to reply, even though they have marked it as 'priority' or something to that effect.

    Thanks Knopfler, it does seem like they don't rush to reply. I guess no news is good news. Good luck with your response as well and I hope you are not in Dire Straits for too long :)

    I was a few weeks I think before I heard and now I get offered the speech recording jobs every couple of months or so.

    Had my first email job from Appen today but it says I have to find a suitable friend /family member to call and check that they are available! Is that right? Anybody else got the same job? I'll need to have a read of everything later, needs to be completed by Thursday and don't want to mess up or look bad cancelling my first job!

    Do you have to chat about any particular topic? I've got to do this too.

    Nope, just have be as natural as possible and not talk about the recording itself.

    Hi everyone, I'm looking to this company and thinking of applying. If successful, are the jobs based on where you live ? Thanks

    You work from home but there are usually different jobs for different countries. Sometimes there is a bit of overlap between countries that speak the same language.

    Has anyone working for Appen for their social media or web evaluation successfully increased their hours with relative ease?

    I am assigned to 1 hour per day day (I was being realistic but feel I will be able to do more) but they seem quite set on it being just 1 hour per day..or should I say it doesn't seem that easy to increase.

    Did anyone else start on 1 or 2 hours and have increased to 3 or 4?

    Never increased my hours but I certainly could have done 3 or 4 times the "hour" I was assigned.

    However, I think there is more value for them to have a wide variety of people doing it with differing demographics.

    Worth dropping them an email though. I always think that if you show willing and enthusiasm you're more likely to be on the top of the pile when they are next recruiting.

    Good luck
