    Pros

    Ability to pick which tasks you work on.

    Cons

    Each task pays between $3 and $4. You do not get paid hourly or for the time you spend working on a task. Every time you communicate with the client, a mentor has to review your response and approve it. This can take a while until the task is approved by a mentor. In the meantime, the task remains open. You only get paid once the task is completed in full. Clients can also respond to completed tasks. So if you complete a task and they respond back (even just to say thank you) the task reopens and is not considered completed anymore. The work itself is labor-intensive. Clients often have over-the-top requests, which require hours of time such a writing blog posts, making spreadsheets, haggling with the phone company, etc. Managers and mentors get mad when you do not complete something to their standards and are quick to belittle you through their responses. Mangers sit high on the throne and get paid as salaried workers with benefits meanwhile all assistants and mentors only get paid peanuts.

    I worked at Fancy Hands full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexible (ish), Can work when you want, a good way to make quick money

    Cons

    Management, Communication, Customers, Respect for employees, limited number of tasks, low pay I worked with Fancy Hands for over 5 years. Over the years I had completed thousands of tasks and even had clients that would request me specifically. If anyone would ask me about a work from home side hustle I would point them towards FH. I SWORE by them. But at the end of August, my account was put into what I later found out to be "soft disable". I was able to access the forums and work on any tasks I had already claimed (which means answer any client follow up questions which you DO NOT get paid for). I emailed management and didn't receive a response, after a few weeks I emailed again and didn't hear back. I didn't hear back until I refused to reply to a client until I was given an answer. Then I was told they needed to look into it and then I waited ANOTHER month+ then I go on to find that my account was disabled with no explanation. The crazy thing is, that I wasn't the only person in the forum having this issue. It wasn't a fluke this is how they treat their employees on a regular basis. All of these positive reviews? Don't believe them they went on a few months ago and asked everyone to put positive reviews up here to bury the negative ones. Also the number of tasks are getting fewer and fewer, may not be worth it at this point.

    I worked at Fancy Hands for less than a year

    Pros

    Choose which jobs you work, choose the hours you work

    Cons

    Because jobs can reopen unexpectedly, you must at least check in on the weekends, and if the job reopened, you have to deal with it. There's a lot of "hurry up & wait".
