Want to work at home for Leapforce and earn as much as $13 hourly? In this Leapforce review, you'll learn what the job involves, how they pay you, when they pay you, and if you may be qualified to do the work.
I'll also share with you a little of my personal experience working for Leapforce, and the experiences of others. Is it as good as it sounds? Not quite. Nothing ever is. But, it's certainly an option if you need non-phone work from home that pays over $12 an hour.
Leapforce hires independent contractors from a variety of different countries to evaluate search engine results and improve them for a major search engine. There are other positions in addition to this one that work a little differently, but that has always been sort of the “main” job you do.
You'll find when you search online for details from current workers that job specifics are sketchy due to non-disclosure agreements, but in general the job involves determining whether or not certain search terms match up well with different web pages and/or video, images, etc.
Even though this sounds fairly easy, many people describe the work as being incredibly hard. Some of the work you can actually do from your iOS device, rather than just a laptop.
Here is basically how payment works at Leapforce:
Pay: $13 hourly
Payment Method: Check or direct deposit
Payment Frequency: Monthly
You have to send Leapforce an invoice in order to be paid. Because of this, keeping track of the time you work down to the minute is very important.
Who Can Work For Leapforce?
Leapforce is open worldwide. If you check their jobs page, you'll see there are usually a variety of openings for people in the US and other countries.
You can work as much or as little as you want, provided there is work posted to do. There is not always work, so despite the high pay rate, I hesitate to tell anyone that they could rely on this as their sole source of income.
You have to take a two part evaluation exam before you can start work. If you fail, you are typically not eligible to take the test again. I say “typically” because they say it when you sign up, but I have heard of some people who failed the test and were then invited to retest a few days later.
I suspect that whether or not you are invited to retest might depend on Leapforce's employment needs. You will receive training materials to look over before you start the test, so since you *may* only be allowed one shot, I would read it backwards and forwards! And no, you are not paid for your time studying.
The first part of the test is general and fairly short, and the second part involves taking simulation search evaluation questions. The second part is very long and drawn out, but you have several days to complete it if you can't finish it all at once.
Are You Qualified to Work For Leapforce?
The website does say that a college degree is “ideal,” but it's not a requirement. There are many people who do this work with nothing more than a high school diploma or less.
You'll need to upload a resume for Leapforce, so listing your skills and qualifications will be especially important if you don't have a degree. You might want to include a cover letter in with your resume for Leapforce explaining why you want the job as well as going into more depth regarding your qualifications.
My Leapforce Experience
I did this for a very short period of time, maybe a month, if that. The work wasn't bad and I kind of enjoyed it, but the time-tracking was difficult. It can be really hard to do when you constantly have to start and stop (as I did due to having two very young children at home). I was paid for the work I did before I stopped logging in.
Other Leapforce Experiences
Leapforce has been around a while, so you won't have any trouble finding info in a recent Leapforce review. But, what you'll discover when you start searching is that many people are bitter toward this company for letting them go for apparently no reason. This is a six month contract position, so holding on to this job is never a sure thing. Definitely keep that in mind if you get accepted to work for them.
I looked for another Leapforce review online, and found a few things to share with you:
- Wendy at Surviving After College basically spells it out for you in this Leapforce review — the good and the bad.
- Lots more insight in this Leapforce Reddit thread.
A lot of people love search engine evaluation and are able to earn a full-time income doing it. On the flip side, some people cannot take the pressure and find the job very difficult.
I think what it boils down to is that some people are just not cut out for search engine evaluation. However, you may excel at it.
