Cons***TV pay rate is highly skewed based on pay from older hits***
Comment left for requester:
The study invitation stated that the time commitment involved would be up to 15 minutes of waiting and 5 minutes to complete the study for a maximum of 20 minutes. The total actual time for me was 39 minutes which places the pay significantly below the legal minimum wage in the US. Had I known the true time commitment, and pay rate, I would have not participated. Looking at past Turkerview reports on this hit shows that this has been the case going back over a month. Given that the study progresses at its own pace, and the time involved is the same for all participants, I'm not sure why such a wildly inaccurate time estimate continues to be advertised a month later. Please be considerate of your study participants and pay at least the legally required minimum rate for the jurisdiction in which you're recruiting workers and be ethical and honest with time estimates.
had to submit hit before finishing as the hit timer was expiring

ConsSo much waiting. There's 15 minutes of waiting before the experiment starts (not included in my time) which you can do other things during because it notifies you with a ding when the experiment is ready. But then you have to wait on 8 other people for 35 rounds. I think I solved it on round 25 and that was around 17 minutes after I started the timer. So ten minutes later I was able to submit. Without the bonus, it's underpaid. With the bonus, it still feels underpaid because I could have been making other money but had to stick around for ten more rounds and a follow-up survey. Bonus should be bigger, IMO.

- HIT Rejected
ConsTakes way longer than the allocated time. Up to 15 minutes in a lobby and you have to wait for all players to make a choice in 35 trials. I timed it, every trial took a minute or more. That's 35 minutes alone. The hit says 20 minutes, that is a complete lie. I was forced to submit due to time out and ended up sending them the completion code through message. Doubt they'll reverse the rejection. Stay away, grossly underpaid.
Advice to RequesterAdd timers for trials or increase pay and allocated time. Work on communication.
