Just be aware that $14.50/hr is for PIECEWORK. You complete a task and get paid however long they say it should take to do that task. They have a set amount of time you get paid for each kind of the dozen or so types of tasks they have. If you do 10 XYZ searches and they allot 1.9 minutes per search, you get paid for 19 minutes. If it took you 40 minutes to do the task, record that you did the task, and submit the task you did on the time sheet, you still get paid for 19 minutes. And if you do them too fast and you get them wrong, you may get fired for sub-par performance.
Oh and if you rate one differently than other raters there is a review of that task by everyone who rated it until it is done correctly. You don’t get paid for that either.
Typically the tasks take MUCH longer than they allot you until you spend months getting good at them. After all the studying you have to do on your own time, and tasks that take longer than they allow, you are not making close to that. ALL learning is on your own time. Look at how much time you had to spend to study for and take the test. That is training and the vast majority of employers pay you to train.
I have yet to submit a time sheet that they did not come back and say I was over by an hour or two. I have to change the time sheets until they agree with what THEY say I completed.
Every time they develop a new type of job/task you have to learn it on your own time - usually an hour to 4 hours. If their system slows down while you are working or just plain starts dying on you, and you have to wait, that's on your time. If you are requested to attend a "voluntary" webinar or complete a survey, that's on your time. If you don't do it, might you lose your job? It's that kind of feeling. I am currently taking a task qualification test after studying for a couple hours, for the THIRD time. Did I fail it? No. They lost it due to technical difficulties. I will have spent 5 or 6 hours of my own time studying and testing for the honor of being qualified to do a new type of job/task. They are very nice about apologizing for the problem, but you still have to take it again. It stays in your work queue until they get back to you, which could take 1 - 3 days. In the meantime you can't do any work you get paid for because that hours worth of certification tests has to be done before you can get back to work.
If I could find another job from home with a fair employer I would be gone in a heartbeat, but as you all probably know, they are very hard to find. So they have you right where they want you.
