Sykes Search Quality Evaluator – New Vendor For Google Search Engine Evaluation Project (US only)
Sykes Search Quality Evaluator
There’s a new job position that is available through Sykes for a Search Quality Evaluator working from home part-time.
It isn’t known exactly what vendor this job could be for since Sykes is an outsourcing provider, but it could be Sykes, Appen or even Lionbridge. Another thing to note is that this job was posted on December 21, 2019 and is still listed. So, if you are looking for a job as a Search Quality Evaluator (known as Google Search Engine Evaluation project: Yukon, Internet Assessor, Rater) this could be your big work at home opportunity.
Judging from the job description about searching for online topics, and how frustrating it can be to get bad results, this is most certainly the same type of job as Search Engine Evaluator and you would be responsible for performing simple web searches on specific topics and then rating the results that are returned within the time frame they give you. A Windows PC is required for this work at home job, and no MACS are being accepted in this project. You must also have an activated smartphone with Wi-Fi capability. Applicants need to have strong computer skills or they will not be considered.
The time you want to work on this project is flexible and you can work on your own time as you wish. There is a schedule provided after training, although it is uncertain what this training might be since there is no previous training for these types of jobs. Only the guide is supplied to you and you must learn on your own. After this training period you must work a minimum of 20 hours per week.
One thing to keep in mind for this project is that you would be reviewing offensive and mature content. If this type of stuff offends you, then you may want to skip this one.
Also, if you live in these states, Sykes is unable to hire you: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, Montana, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Vermont, Washington and West Virginia.

Where does the “states unable to hire from” list come from?
It comes from the description of the role on the official website of the vendor:https://jobs.sykes.com/en-US/job/search-quality-evaluator-work-from-home-part-time-eg/J3S0H063YLJYCLTQXZL
I am in the process of re-taking the SQE exam with Sykes. In answer to the question about the pay scale here is what I know. They are paying $10 per hour for Arkansas (and i believe all states) residents. The minimum number of hours is 15 and the maximum number of hours is 20 per week. There is a two week paid training and a three month probationary period.
Thank you for sharing this info.
I was thinking about applying to this job but sounds like a very hard test. Do you get training and payment to prepare for the test?
Preparation for the exam is not paid.
Paid training is $9 and hour.
What kind of content is offensive? what does this company do?
The program was shut down in April of this year 2021
Thank you for update!
