Need Testers For Your Product?

kdc's Avatar

As I was searching online for a job, I came across this company that is looking for in home testers for products. I would love to do this, it comes across to me that the testing would be for newly invented products and of course you are required to sign a NDA.  If it wasn't for the possible traveling, I'd be applying for it.

I wanted to check them out further to see exactly what kind of company it is.  I think some of the members here may also want to check them out if you have a product that you want to have tested and get user feedback and evaluation.  

I don't have experience with this company, so be sure to do your homework first. I just thought some of you might find it an option for you to look into if you're interested as a tester or as a customer.

WoW... that is so cool Kathleen. Thanks for sharing. I'm half tempted to apply myself but that would mess up my SS and retirement and so on. I wish I could have done that full time when I was working !  LoL

I know, I keep thinking about it. But, the travel is what's holding me back. I'm not one for staying in hotels and sleeping in beds and under covers that so many other people have used.  I would be that person parked in a parking lot sleeping in my car. And I don't have a Smart Phone, as I told Elizabeth the other day, I have a dumb phone.

I've read a lot of negative things about work at home scams, but I don't think this is one of them.

lol  I know what you mean about hotels Kathleen.  I have to spend quite a bit of time in them, so I stick to 1 or 2 brands and run up points, so I often get upgraded to nicer rooms. I always wipe everything down with a Lysol wipe before I get settled in.  Sounds a little neurotic, but I rarely get sick, so must be working.  

And, they say they wash the sheets, so could be true!

Well Kim...I just think about people doing things on those beds that they wouldn't do on their own beds...and that's just to ... well, you know.  When I was staying at the hospital with my Dad, the nurses were always offering me a blanket and I'd refuse every time, telling them I'd just just cover with my coat.  I didn't want to say why, but I just kept thinking how many of those hospital blankets have had blood or urine or puke on them or accompanied people to the morgue and I wasn't about to lay under any of them.

lol  Ya know, we've all turned into a nation of germaphobes.  We didn't have gloves for surgeries back in the day (or other unpleasant tasks, either)  A good handwashing usually took care of whatever was present.

The linens in the hospital are very clean.  They bleach the heck out of them. The stuff with biohazard spills are sent for special processing before they're laundered.  I'm sure hotels have similar processes, but their stuff always feels softer.  I'm sure there are health department rules in place for all this, and with our lawsuit happy society, no one will take a chance on anything like that.  I just always figure the maids are not going to clean the way I would, so I enhance their process!  :)
