Tried signing up for Test.IO to do some bug hunting and Application testing on the side. I’m a Software Developer by trade, so something like this would be a neat way to get some extra testing experience while also getting paid.
They state that they don’t use a real site, and that we will be compensated. However, the onboarding test website is the actual, live version of a real business (REI in this case), and there is no compensation for successful completion of the test and reporting of bugs. I’m also seeing in the Bugs Reported feed for this test that some of the reports are actually being forwarded on to REI, when Test.IO explicitly stated on Glassdoor that they don’t do that with the onboarding exam.
It just feels like at this point it’s a game of diminishing returns. Does anybody else have any experience with this site? Has their experience been the same?
