ConsI ended receiving a rejection stating "No matching survey data found". I am not sure how that was even possible since the completion code was the very last page of the survey and there was not "Next" button on the page to submit the survey results. The survey also asked you to input your MTurk ID twice on the first page of the survey. I have emailed the requester 3 times already with no luck. I know that the requester has positive reviews here, and I would cut them some slack if they had been willing to engage in a dialogue to solve my issue, but I would AVOID them. There was no way my results were not submitted since I got a completion code and even if there was an issue, it was their software that screwed up and I should not be penalized for a screw up on their side. If they are giving out completion codes, it is not a valid rejection to say they could not find my data set.
UPDATE: After spending a bit of time trying to find someone at the requester to voice my compliant, I finally stumbled on an email that was able to help me. Their explanation for why I was rejected was convoluted but basically boiled down to the fact I filled out the wrong survey and got a code for another one of their surveys. Not sure how that was possible but they said since I provided good data on the survey I submitted, they would reverse the rejection and pay me. I am not sure I would put them on a Block list but I am definitely wary about working for them again. They ended up doing the wright thing but only after I spent considerable time trying to get the rejection overturned.
Advice to RequesterFixed your software and accept responsibility for it not working in all cases. It makes you look like a researcher that is out for free data.

ProsThe study will take approximately 40 minutes and will require you to indicate which work style is most or more like you trying two unique platforms in Task 1 and Task 2. These items can seem repetitive, so we have added attention control items to help you stay focused for the task. To receive compensation, you must respond appropriately to these items.
We ask that you read each item carefully and answer honestly. Imagine having to back up each response to people who know you really well.

Describe Yourself: Short Survey about your work styles and preferences - $10.00
$33.90 / hour

ProsSimple multiple choice questions throughout. Things you've seen a million times, just for much higher pay.
ConsCan be done faster but they were vaguely threatening after the first section that I was going too fast, even though it was just basic personality questions. Deliberately let things hang after that.
