Get Paid $9557 to Sleep!

Written By: Gary on September 27, 2007 62 Comments

So you have to spend 47 consecutive days and nights living at the hospital in your own room but it does pay you $9557. I thought it might be interesting, especially if out of a job (or really bored). But here’s the downside:

You will not know what time it is during the 47-day study, and the room has no windows, clocks, TV, and you will not be allowed to bring devices that tell time. You will also not have access to a telephone during the 47-day study.

Holy cow! I think it’s really a suicide study. Or some kind of reality TV show. I’ve got to assume that means no ‘net access either!!!

You will be told when to go to sleep and when to wake up, when to shower, and when to eat your meals. You will also have to take performance tests on a computer in your room many times each day. In between these study activities you will have free time, but your free time will be interrupted frequently.

Actually, it does say “at no time are you being recorded on video or audiotape” so I guess it’s not a reality show. All the info is in the SlickDeals post if you’re interested…

    Part of this is really intriguing to me, but I couldn’t do it at this point in my life.

  2. Lindsay says on: 15 October 2007 at 9:17 pm

    I completed the similar study in Boston which lasted 39 consecutive days.

    It was close to suicide. But I came out of it with $9,150.

    I did one of these studies. And I almost hung myself. They had to come in and stop me from killing myself. DONT DO THESE THEY ARE STUPID AND ABSURD! YOU WILL COMMIT!

  4. Allan Martin says on: 4 September 2008 at 3:24 pm

    I know that if you work as a security guard on graveyard shifts, many sites are quiet enough that you can get paid to sleep.

    Sleep for 45 minutes, and do a call check every hour. If you are in a building, sleeping in the bathroom or a room is helpful.

    The study is still going on, I applied recently and didn’t qualify but they have others as well. There are strict requirements you have to meet and your stay may require blood draws via IV’s or needle sticks.

  21. Skippy says on: 15 January 2010 at 12:31 pm

    That averages about $200/day and at 24 hors a day, you are only getting paid about $8/hr. Not much off from minimum wage. It isn’t worth it.

  39. Monkey Butt says on: 4 August 2011 at 5:55 pm

    Hate to be the one to break it to you guys, but if there’s been a renewed interest in the experiments conducted during WW 2, there could be another incident. Think about it, your asleep, & they’ve prob got lots of doctors around, with their nice, pointy needles.
    They could drug your food, drinks, & even perform mental experiments on you while asleep, which are usually non-reversible. Who’s to say they’ll stick to the rules? They’ve got you, & if they can convince everyone your insane, no one will listen to your claims. Of course, this is just a possibility, & a worse case scenario.

  40. Nene colon says on: 19 August 2011 at 1:03 pm

  41. Josh Morales says on: 25 August 2011 at 8:14 am

    I’m scared of the dark. I like being alone. I like doing nothing. Sleep sometimes bores me. Sure, I’ll do this job. It seems really challenging. Mentally. Contact me.

    it’s not worth a single minute of my life. I will be away from my beloved kids, I won’t see the sunset or sunrise or the moon for 47 days. I won’t get to enjoy a nice cup of coffee or have sex or a kiss. 47 day of my life will be wasted,no sun light on my face, or cold breeze. All that have no price for a chance to go insane not even enjoy the money

  53. Larry Thompkins says on: 21 March 2013 at 10:01 am

  56. George says on: 11 October 2013 at 4:30 am

    Lol telling me when I have to fall asleep/wake up. Its impossible for me to do either or with an alarm clock

  57. George says on: 11 October 2013 at 4:35 am

    Listen I can easily sit in a room for 47 days and do absolutely nothing. I can day dream for 20 plus hours a day with my eyes closed. Its just the sleeping part itself that would be tough. Curiosity is always a good thing in my eyes

  58. Frank Stewart says on: 25 October 2013 at 12:21 pm
