As someone who used to work for Fancy Hands, please know that what they tell you is totally different than what is actually happening. As has already been shared with you, the majority of the tasks are nowhere near the $3.65 that Meghan has indicated. Their vetting process is next to nothing – complete an application and you’re basically hired. The training? A video that you can complete in a few minutes that shares with you how FH works, how you get paid, (you’re paid through Dwolla, but there is no tax forms given, so you’re basically working under the… Read more »

The way managers/ mentors response to you is in a very condescending way! Furthermore, I had a task that I picked up that took 2 hours or more to complete and when I tried to release it because I wasn’t aware that the task was going to take that long due to them posting that task should take 15 to 20 minute a manager by the name of Scott responded in a extremely rude way… Read more »

Hey there, great article! I work for Fancy Hands, so I just wanted to clear a few things up that aren’t quite right. Unlimited long distance isn’t required because you don’t call out with your own phone. You call out via the phone system and then receive a phone call from the system that connects you to your call. That means you can call anywhere in the world without incurring any long distance on your own phone bill. Deciding what tasks you take isn’t determined during the application process, so you won’t have to choose. Each task that comes in… Read more »
