This is @amelianchu's WinterMilestone 1 entry. I am based in the US.

Experience the life of a Worker on Mechanical Turk

Reflect on your experience as a worker on Mechanical Turk. What did you like? What did you dislike?

Long wait time for sign up, i.e. multiple sign up's required (sign-up for worker account, and amazon payments account, why do I need to provide my social security number? On Amazon payment help it says needs SSN/TIN but no TIN option readily available on the form, could deter potential users who could really benefit from this source of income. https://payments.amazon.com/help/201491290#tax_1) Had to verify two different times. Up to 48 hours for the mturk account and then an additional up to 24 hours for the Amazon Payments.

Did a survey, est duration was 60 mins, completed in 30-45? Bad questions with typos and grammatical errors not serious, I could still understand the questions but was distrating, answers (MC) that don't quite seem to fit the question. Super long survey (fatigue)

Experience the life of a Requester on Mechanical Turk

Reflect on your experience as a requester on Mechanical Turk. What did you like? What did you dislike? Also attach the CSV file generated when you download the HIT results. If you're from outside the USA and unable to access MTurk, you can try the MTurk requester sandbox, or CrowdFlower or Microworkers or Clickworker

Explore alternative crowd-labor markets

Compare and contrast the crowd-labor market you just explored (TaskRabbit/oDesk/GalaxyZoo) to Mechanical Turk.
