@Cclaire i have and was wondering the same. I’ve done a bit of digging in the internet and I suspect it’s pay per phrase, or similar. So may be typing like the clappers for about 2p per line. I’m not holiding our much hope! If I find anything out I’ll let you know.

Thanks @Lizziew24. I tried asking them but they don't seem keen to say!

I finally heard from Appen today about a position, been 6 months, but reading the e mail it's says you need a Smartphone of less than 3 years old, mine is around 4-5, I have e mailed them to see what they say. Are all the jobs done by smartphone, I prefer to use a laptop with keyboards?

I imagine it's WSE work and they push the site you are going to review on your laptop to your phone that's all

I can't see the age of the phone being an issue

@Cclaire got an email this morning to say this was first come first served so I’ve been deregistered from “project iceberg”. Bloomin fuming. I responded straightaway when I hit the invitation. Never get anywhere with Appen. Bah.

I've just applied for lots of Appen roles, I'm hoping I get through to at least one :p

It will be my main income source if I get it

I’ve been nothing but messed around by Appen. It’s over a year since I applied and I think I’ve been offered 6 positions for them to retract the offer at the last moment. So frustrating! Oh well, onwards and upwards!!

I got accepted even though I didn't bother replying to the invite or doing any test since I can't do transcription work because my dog barks at every single noise

I keep getting an email about that one saying 'We look forward to having you on this project' etc etc and then no follow up emails. Haven't filled anything in or anything. I wish they'd just send me some instructions so I can start!

Same here @luckyj142 im fed up of it. Apparently the “iceberg” I was deregistered from is different to the transcription one, so I’m still going to hear back and they are looking forward to having me. Yeah right! :p

I got invited to this on 31 August. I did a transcription test and received a follow-up email on 4 September saying they have forwarded my profile to the project manager for further review. Heard nothing since though it was only three days ago.

Well I got another email saying I should hear soon so I replied to ask what they were playing at. Seemingly some admin error their end. So, My details are with one manager and should be reviewed soon, and I’m waiting to hear back about their amazing opportunity on another project which turns out to be a 2 hour test for about £1.50. I seriously hope that some decent project comes along soon. o_O

Can't find an OT appen thread so asking this here :)

I've been invited for a voice recording job but I can't do it as I'm away. Do I need to log in and decline the offer or can I just ignore the email? I haven't done any work for Appen yet and I don't want to be blacklisted before I've even had a chance to get started!

If you can't do it, you can't do it so I would just decline

After finally hearing from Appen and a few e mails from them, I went to set up the payment section via Payoneer and I can't get past my address details, when I press the button the webpage just hangs, I e mailed Appen but got a reply that did not any sense, something about Trail Spaces! I have tried most days but getting no where, so imagine I have missed out now after waiting since February.
