The first pre qualification is by the survey company. Usually, there is not a lot you have to enter in this first
prequalification. Often, they already have much of your pre qualified info anyway. If you clean out your computer,
you'll find you will need to enter it all again, in regards to some of the survey companies.
The second pre qualification some times takes place and some times doesn't. This may depend on the
survey and/or survey company. This second pre qualification can be lengthy depending on what type
of survey it is and what that survey is trying to accomplish in that given survey.
Some times you may think you are actually taking the survey since you are answering a gazillion questions.
But that is not always the case. Some times it is the survey as stated, the second pre qualification, doing
their own determination to see if you are qualified to do their survey.
And yep, you can get booted out of the survey if your answers don't make sense. For example, saying you
work 24 hours a day and then saying you don't work at all and then saying you work part time.
