Reckner Opinions - Three Panels to Join
Reckner is a research company with over 25 years of experience in the market research space. This panel does studies with more than 250,000 panelists per year. A unique element of Reckner is that they offer three separate panels that various audiences can join. The panels are divided into the following categories: Consumer Panel, Sensory Panel, and Healthcare Professionals Panel.
Why Join Reckner?
Reckner conducts various types of opinion and consumer research studies for national and international companies. Registering with Reckner gives you the opportunity to share what you think of the products and services brands offer to consumers. Once you register, Reckner will contact you either by phone or email to invite you to various studies. Each time you participate in one of their studies, you will be paid for your time.
1. Consumer Panel
The consumer panel is open to anyone that would like to make an impact on the future of products and services that they use every day. The consumer studies always pay for your opinions and offers a variety of research options. They are as follows:
- Online Surveys and Telephone Surveys
- Focus Groups
- Taste Tests
- In Depth and One-on-One Interviews
- Home Use Tests/Product Testing
2. Sensory Panel
The Sensory Panel is operated out of their Harrison, NY facility. This is an in-person panel which is more like a part-time job.
3. Healthcare Professionals Panel
If you work in the healthcare industry, you can help influence the future of healthcare, pharmaceutical, and medical device companies. Provide your insights and opinions through online surveys and telephone or in-person interviews.
Payment for Studies
All panels with Reckner will reward you for your time. Typically, this is in the form of a pre-paid Visa card. If the study is online, you will receive a link to a virtual card. Payment depends on the length and complexity of the study involved and may vary greatly with different research methods across panels.
In-Person Study Details
Reckner offers in-person studies for all three research panels. To qualify for these studies, you must live near one of the research centers, which are located in the following areas:
- Chalfont, Pennsylvania

- Harrison, New York
Children Can Participate Too!

They will contact you, the parent, to see if it is something that you would like your child to have an opportunity to do. Reckner never attempts to contact children without parental consent. Reckner complies with the standards for conducting research with children as it is outlined by the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998.

I've done several paid surveys with Reckner and will continue to do them! Great way to make some extra money.

Reckner isn't a survey panel, as you'd commonly find on SurveyPolice. You sign up, and occasionally, they'll send an invite for a survey or product test. I've done one of each so far in about 7 months, so yeah... Sporadic... Both were enjoyable and I felt I was compensated well for my time. Just wish I'd get them more often. They do have in person taste tests, but those are for folks in NY & NJ, so I don't qualify for those, unfortunately. I'd say sign up for the occasional inbox surprise for product test, (love those;) just don't expect a regular income from enlisting.
