Anyone a Lionbridge Internet Assessor? - Page 25
Wow! What a journey my Lionbridge experience was! I initially inquired about a job there at the end of February; went through the process with the guidelines, practice data, and finally testing. Put in 15-20 hours per week. Started as a "paid" assessor in early June; got an e-mail two days ago that they no longer need my services. I responded asking why, and got an e-mail back saying they cannot provide individual feedback!!! Hope I get paid at least for the hours worked; however, there was a computer issue with my assessor's portal, so 7 of my hours didn't get entered on a timesheet. Here's the really discouraging thing. You have to access your assessor's portal through Firefox; that is, until it is no longer accessible through Firefox. Then they want you to download Google Chrome. I asked if there was any way around this because I had always heard from our computer guys at work that Chrome can cause serious problems on your computer. The technical people at Lionbridge insisted if I wanted to access the portal (which is necessary--for learning tools, etc.), that I would have to download Chrome, so I did. Two days later--hard drive on my laptop is gone! At this point I cannot say for sure it's because I downloaded Chrome, but it's really a coincidence. So I'm out of the job, it's quesionable whether I'll get paid at all because they "boot" you out of the system within 24 hours, and now I need a new laptop. It's a shame--it was really interesting work, but the company's practices are, in my opinion, questionable. Oh, well, I had read all I could about Lionbridge before I started it, and decided to do it anyhow. Time to accept the lesson and move on....If anyone can direct me to alternate WAH opportunities that are a bit more reliable, I would greatly appreciate it.
I am not sure what you are talking about with Chrome. Were you a US Internet Assessor? I have been working for LB for about 6 months and have always used Firefox. I have heard nothing about using Chrome.
As for being let go, did you attend any of the webinars? Did you get any feedback ratings? Keep emailing them and someone will answer you.
Hi all, I'm new here. I just applied to Lionsbridge yesterday, got my consultant agreement today (for Social Media Internet Assessor). When should I expect my exam? Is there a pre-test for this position that I can practice on? I am not too worried about the theoretical part of the exam, as it seems if people fail, they usually fail the second part. So that I am really worried about. I don't know what to expect :/ I don't even really know what this position entails. A friend of mine told me about the Search Assessor, but not the Social Media one. I am just worried I will fail, I really, really need this. I start nursing school this semester and I won't have a schedule open enough to find work outside my home right now. My family has to eat! Does anyone have any experience with this position? And would I be able to retake it if I fail? Ahh >.<
Thank you for the information. I have just signed their contract agreement...how long does it take

Thanks again...your answer is very helpful.
Can you tell me how long it too for them to reply to you after you signed and submitted the contract agreement?

1.use some timer software, search Google for stopper or alarm software... I use free stop watch.
2. Use minutes for time sheet, and don't hesitate to ask support for questions they are friendly and helped me always without problem.
Hi i applied did exams over year ago took another year to be offered any work id forgotten about them.

pays very little money.........had good commincation with them all time had hit apps to judge.
got paid for al work and why this gotta wait 2 months for payments to be done in arrears aswell.in in uk no web seminars over here for them...
all do is log in daily to check for tasks to apply for some of which you have read guidelines and do task for a mini test if pass get the work if not get 2 more attempts.
once youve done certain type task next one available you dont do a tests just read guidelines.and they time you on some way to fast for time eneded to type all answers in.
and why pay in dollars when its actually not a amercian company its a polish one i checked.
so you lose some wages in conversion rates.for uk its at 6%................
anyone know of another company doing same type work id love recieve info from you.
