Hi everyone, I’ve recently been assigned to an Appen project where my task is to help Appen find people who speak target languages as their first language (English and/or German) to participate in the project and help them complete the task as required.

Those interested will be asked to register on Appen Global and use Appen’s recording platform to complete 4 phone calls with another person on topics such as finance, Insurance, retail, etc. Each phone call is 15 minutes. Conversations should be as natural as possible and in a quiet indoor environment. Each candidate can participate in the task once and once only. All recordings will be verified by Appen’s Quality Assurance team for speaker nativeness and speech quality.

After the recordings are verified and accepted, Appen will pay you US$50 for the task.

I will receive $20 for each of the candidates that successfully complete the task as required. Appen will use my Appen Global ID/Recruiters reference number 543509 to identify candidates that I have recruited.

For those interested you will need to:

1) Complete Appen’s Expression of Interest Form quoting my Appen Global ID as Recruiter's reference number. (If the link doesn’t work: https://appen.formstack.com/forms/telephony ).

2) Enter my Appen Global ID/Recruiters reference number 543509. (you will see the option to enter Recruiters reference number after you have picked English).

3) Once the forms are received and you qualify for Appen's project, Appen’s project supervisors will send a detailed task instruction to the email address provided.

Yea, Jon sent out the same invite via e-mail but he failed to point out you need to be registered with Appen (naughty Jon ;)). I filled in the form but then found out I'd have to register with them and as I don't want to work for them I don't think I can just do this task without going through their reg process

aye, you need to register with em.

Do you not want to do appen work in the future? I know the work is ad-hoc but it's a good account to have

I'm not really sure what they do to be honest. Now I'm down to part time work in my early run down to retirement :) I might look into them

Is it just $50 for the one who accepts the task? Is it possible for the person on the other end of the call to get paid or should I just give them a share of what I get?

It's $50 for the person who accepts the task with Appen.

I suppose nothing is stopping you getting the other person at the end of the phone to sign up and do the call in reverse.

Hi - only the person who accepts the task receives $50.

Has anyone successfully completed this task yet?

Just wondering if the phone calls ask for personal info about your finance, insurance etc.

I can see people who have signed up under me who have completed it at my end.

What makes you think they ask for insurance information etc?

Just from past experience with focus groups etc, but I'm guessing Appen is different?

Not had a lot of experience with them really!

it's literally just normal phone calls

They (well their client) want to get a grasp on the regional English voices to help with stuff like Alexa / Google Home technology that helps recognize words so when you do the phone calls and chat about the latest dog food you are buying that's all they are after!

Normally I get paid via PayPal but you could open a ticket and ask them when they will run payroll for this
