Teemwork.ai is actually an old site that went by the name of iSoftStone. It is similar to Lionbridge and Appen. A crowdsourcing website with different jobs available to a global audience. They have Online Crowd Worker Jobs (read UHRS jobs), Search Engine Evaluator, and various transcription and web judging jobs.
Then why don’t you hear about it very often?
The only problem with Teemwork.ai
They can take an excruciating amount of time to onboard you. I have waited as long as 10 months before I got onboarded for some of the positions (like Online Crowd Worker – which is basically a UHRS job like Clickworker, Oneforma, etc.)
Some people might get onboarded within a month or two. It all depends on pure luck and timing.
It’s because they don’t have vacancies very frequently. The time between your application and approval can take months to even a year or two. This makes it a hit or miss opportunity depending on the time that you applied for it.
I remember applying for it in October 2019 (for the first time) and received a response in December. It was a Search Engine Evaluator project (that required me to pass an exam) that paid 12$/hour. Unfortunately, I failed and all the positions filled up quickly. Then I applied for an Online Crowd Worker (their term for UHRS jobs) in December and received a reply 10 months later in September 2020.
For some people it even took years before they received a reply from them. That is what makes Teemwork a hit-or-miss opportunity. It all depends on your timing.

How much can I earn from Teemwork and How do I get paid?
The pay rates for teemwork are at par with Lionbridge, meaning they pay around 5$/hour to 14$/hour (depending on your country). Pair that with lots of work and you can earn a sufficient amount of extra money from Teemwork.ai.
I worked for 3 months there and earned around 40,000 INR (~ 500$) averaging all the 3 months. And since there was a lot of work available, I did not have to switch to other sites to find more jobs.
They process your payments from Paypal or Payoneer, and you are paid on a monthly cycle.

The Pros and Cons of Teemwork.ai
Teemwork (or iSoftstone) does not have openings very frequently, which is both a good and a bad thing. Though it means that it can take a very long time before your application is approved, but on the flip side, it scrapes out a lot of your competition.
There are considerably fewer workers on Teemwork, which makes sure that there’s a sufficient amount of work you can do. I was able to earn a good monthly income just by working at Teemwork because there was a lot of work to do. Less competition = More work.
