Note that Social Media Evaluator jobs at Appen are offered on a contract basis. That means you would be a contractor, not an employee of the company.

Also, there doesn’t seem to be any guaranteed work hours. I’ve read reports of contractors working 60+ hours for Appen in one week, while other contractors say they go through stretches of having few tasks available.
