Guidelines for Payment

TaskTeens Pay Rates:

Starting 9/1/2020, teens completing tasks for TaskTeens will earn pay for work as shown in the image above for jobs completed satisfactorily. We surveyed and interviewed many of you out there getting paid, and one major concern we heard was the fear that you would be underpaid if you didn't work a full hour (for example, that you would work 1 hour 40 minutes, but only be paid for 1 hour). We heard and listened to your feedback, and have implemented the following system to ensure fair compensation on all jobs:

Prorated Pricing



  • Many teens were worried that they would be undercharged for work if the job took anything more/less than multiples of 1 hour (for example, being paid for 2 hours of work on a job which took 2 hours and 20 minutes)



  • Prorated pricing rounded to the half hour. 



  • Job takes 3 hours and 10 minutes: teen paid for 3 hours of labor

  • Job takes 3 hours and 15 minutes: teen paid for 3.5 hours of labor

  • Job takes 3 hours and 40 minutes: teen paid for 3.5 hours of labor

  • Job takes 3 hours and 50 minutes: teen paid for 4 hours of labor

Our goal at TaskTeens continues to be to offer local teenagers the highest paying job opportunities in a clear and transparent manner, and we are confident that with this new system, we'll be able to do so better than ever before. As always, we love to hear feedback from you, and are always open to making changes to better our system of doing things. Feel free to get in touch at any of the following:

For jobs not done to satisfaction:

For jobs where the homeowner is not satisfied with the work completed, teens will be paid a minimum of $7.25 per hour for a maximum of 6 hours (calculated using the system shown above). Payment may be denied completely to a teen in the event of any of the following:

  • Teen does not make a reasonable effort to complete the job to homeowner's satisfaction

  • Teen displays a pattern of poorly completed work

  • Teen causes damage to homeowner's property

  • Teen acts in an unprofessional manner to homeowner

  • Any other reason deemed by TaskTeens to void payment
