Experience the life of a Worker on Mechanical Turk

What did you like?

- A high number of hits were available for workers without qualifications

- Most tasks seemed quite simple and easy to do, the amount to be earned was also quite evident

- Approval rate was quicker than others

What did you dislike?

- I was able to work for a few hits on mturk however, later I recieved an email stating my worker status was not approved and I wouldn't be receiving anything!

- Usability wise, I found it tough to use

- The website itself looks very dated and unappealing. It could be visually designed much better

- Hits can be accepted if you click on hits in this group and that is not evident. It is frustrating without accept button upfront in the listing

- Search options are too small

- Too much time taken to find and finish appropriate hits


What do you think can be improved about the system?

- The layout should be more user friendly and visually appealing.

- The layout should follow design guidelines that ensure better usability and readability

- Repeated posts should be avoided.
