    No, but my bank is showing it as pending, which probably means I'll get it Monday.

    Hellooooo fellow co-workers!! Been working in ISS for 2 years, I have a question: any of you have worked while travelling abroad? I´m not sure if there is any issue about that, working while in other country or if we are able to take a rest? I´m afraid about this as I will be travelling and I want to continue having this job upon my return

    Hi! I doubt it would be possible to work whilst travelling abroad as the role is market/country specific. I've taken a break for two weeks for a holiday with no problem (obviously without pay though!). I'm not sure how much time they would let you take off, but it may be worth asking the project manager?

    Yes, still here I'm guessing by now everyone's used to the new system, it's a bit odd isn't it. I don't like how there basically isn't any chance to work in evenings any more but actually I've done more hours this month than I usually do because so far the work has been steady. So sort of good, sort of bad..

    Sorry, just seen this. Was annoyed when I posted as I'd got the "daily hours reached" message after only 1.5 hours of working. Then emailed the current PM to find out what was going on, only to be told there wasn't a cap, and that we can work up to 4 hours per day. I'd assumed those emails we used to get every morning meant we'd all been allocated a certain number of hours for that day, and therefore someone else must've hoovered up some of mine before I'd got the chance.. Only apparently that's not what the emails meant..? Anyway, things seem to have improved a bit since. And yeah, it seems to be a matter of getting the hours in as early as possible. Am still getting the cap message occasionally, but usually around the time of day I'm about to stop working anyway. So, am only getting a little less work than I used to overall at the moment.

    Hellooo again! I´ve been working with ISS for 2 years, most of the time on W5, but I have done also FN and lately Fresh Intent. 90% of the time I have reached the higher rate and my record is working 12 hours per day. (Yes, this is my only job). Nevertheless it seems they are reducing the hours in our market. So I´m thinking in apply for one of the other available companies to compensate the loss.

    Here in my country the options are: 1.- ABH with Social Media Evaluator, Web Search Evaluator (I have read you can´t do this with both companies at the same time), Localizer and Crowdsourcing. 2..- Leapforce with Search Engine Evaluator.

    Do you have any idea which of these options it´s worth it?

    OK, thanks. Looking at the latest metrics, the main issue for me is the RPH. I can only put this down to being on a "older" laptop. Certainly not lack of experience, as I've been doing this role for coming up to 2 years now, and also did it for a year with Appen before that. So, even if I worked my !!!! off to do the number of hours I needed to qualify, I'd still likely lose out due to my speed being a couple of points below the requirement.

    Just been feeling a bit fed up and undervalued recently with the minimum wage now going up to £7.50. So, if there were a load of us stuck on this lower rate (despite doing exactly the same job/passing the metrics each week), I thought we could possibly get together as a group and approach them. Either to ask for some sort of "pay equality", or whether they could switch the payment to US dollars or something..

    Luckily, I am also with one of the other SEE companies as well, which IS paying us a decent rate.

    After saying this, I actually managed to work the most hours last month in coming up to 2 years. Not sure how though. Oh, and I also achieved the higher pay rate for the first time ever, despite working one hour less than the requirements.

    Reading this earlier, I thought you'd said you worked 12 hours per day EVERY day, and honestly couldn't understand how without your hands falling off and going blind.
