I just spent an hour+ on a Survey
« on: March 25, 2022, 09:41:50 am »
It was not a Consumer Survey as the subject line stated. It was a very tough complicated logistics survey where you had to search Google and then there was the "bonus" questions and classifications---you know, gender, age, education, etc. After all that I was DQ'D. That is NOT fair. Plus they should put the classifications in the beginning, not the end. Totally disgusted. >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(

I think that I attempted this one and gave up early on.

These surveys can be a problem. They can be misleading.

I agree that this is so unfair because I don't like to waste my time on a survey and then not qualify in the end.  They need to let you know before you spend a lot of time on the survey.

I never spent an hour on a survey, usually if it takes too long I would just quit the survey

Normally, my limit to attempting a survey is 20 minutes but often the survey keeps going and going. it might say 15 minutes and 25 minutes. you are still on it with no end in site. There are times when I have thought of calling it quits but once I have invested X amount of time in the survey, I want to keep going hoping that it will have a happy ending.

This one said 10 on the front screen, then when I clicked on it, it said 15 minutes....and after that, it just kept going. I, too, hate to invest x mount of time since I qualify for very few surveys here, I decided to keep going without a happy ending when DQ'd. I won'd torture myself again.

Wow it sounds like it was very complicated.  I don't like surveys that are complicated because it makes me mad to work on something for any length of time and then get disqualified.
