Teemwork.ai: A trusted UHRS Contractor (formerly iSoftStone)

Last Updated on January 7, 2022

Teemwork.ai is actually an old (and trusted) 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?

Why don’t you hear about Teemwork/iSoftStone very ofter?

This is because they don’t hire crowdworkers very often. But they do have new openings from time to time, consistently. You just need to be patient with them.

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.

It took me almost an year between my application and when I started working.

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.ai/iSoftStone? (And how will I get paid?)

The pay rates for Teemwork are at par with Lionbridge, meaning they pay around 5$/hour to 20$/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 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.

Turns out the weak point of Teemwork is also it’s strongest point. Having a less amount of crowdworkers allows there to be sufficient work available for everyone.

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.

Not enough jobs on Teemwork? Try signing up with other contractors.

Don’t worry if you aren’t getting into Teemwork, or not able to find enough jobs to work on. Try signing up with another UHRS contractor to increase your work availability.

    Please avoid like the plague. I wouldn’t wish my experience with them on my worst enemy. I did a data collection project with these folks and it has been a living hell to get paid. I e-mailed the coordinator of this project five times until I received my payment. When I finally received it, it was sent wrong on Paypal in a way that skimmed processing fees from the final amount and put the payment on hold for seven days. I refunded them the payment and explained to them that the payment needed to be sent correctly via the friends and family option on Paypal and was ignored. I sent the project coordinator 10 e-mails explaining that the payment was sent wrong and that it needed to be sent correctly and pleaded with him or her to let the Finances department know to no avail. So I opened a case with the Better Business Bureau. Now the project coordinator is continuing to bother me, with hardly any options for a resolution. They want me to sign a direct deposit form with my bank information (Nope, not going to happen) or to resend the payment in the jacked-up way it has been sent before on Paypal. I said it can be sent via Venmo or a similar non-Paypal payment, via a paper check, or that the Better Business Bureau can continue to look into it. Since this response, I have been put in limbo by them with no resolution right around and running straight into Christmas and into the new year – over three weeks later. This is truly the worst experience I’ve ever encountered in trying to get paid by a company that I completed work for and these are truly awful and evil people. I loathe these scummy people with the fire of a thousand suns. They’re also removing and suppressing honest and negative reviews on Google and Glassdoor. The Better Business Bureau ruled the case as being outside of the scope of what they handle, which is consumer complaints. However, they did advise me that I’m well within my rights to get a collections agent or lawyer involved to help me get what is owed to me and I sent them two e-mails today, explaining this, but they’re continuing to ignore me. I am horrified by the number of one-star reviews on iSoftStone on Glassdoor and Google for non-payment of completed work – approximately 20. Had I seen these earlier, I would’ve never dealt with these folks. The fact that this multi-billion dollar company has put a system in place that is hell-bent on stiffing so many independent contractors for completed work and is thriving from doing so is incredibly disturbing. I may or may not sue. They are wearing me down and it’s all definitely being done on purpose.

    1. Thanks for sharing your experience. Why did you not accept the direct bank deposit from them, btw?
