Leapforce.com also does the same thing.
Anyone a Lionbridge Internet Assessor? - Page 26
you do not look very satisfied with lionbridge.. I read some discussions and leapforce and butler pay even less
Hi i was when got work reguarly.they admitted dont have much work fro uk.
butler are rubbish dont bother unless youve got lauguage skills then they good pay rates i think lionbridge were best overall.
in end all poor pay except some tasks which pay more.more skills you have more you can earn.
Hi, could somebody let me know after what time you got your star rating? I am working from beginning of August yet and still do not have a feedback. First time they reopened my time sheet now for September - the part related to map project. They asked me to reduce the time and after some correspondence they persuade me that I did much less tasks than I reported. I have a very precise evidence of work done, so I know it is not true. Is there somebody else with this kind of experience? I am thinking about not to work on this project anymore after that.
THat is reall weird. I have never recieved a star rating and I have been working there since june. Oddly I just recieved a payment for september yesterday so I figure they must be planning to terminate me,= but I have yet to recieve any corespondance.
What did your email say?
Which tasks was it? Was it in the ewoq 1 or 2?
I don't time my time. I just mark my tasks down and then multiply by their minute requirement
So EXP WEB's requirment is 2 min
so 10 would be 20 min. I use an excel file I made.
I also do it in the same way as you (multiply by minute requirement) but I did more than 700 tasks and they told me I did only 550 so I have to reduce time to meet their expectations. But I stricly mark my tasks, so I know how many tasks I did...
this what I talk about is rating of google maps, so another project they asked me to take part... not the standard rating tasks... also yesterday I received an email that new tasks in this project will be available and they expect me to rate some... but after this experience I am not sure whether I would like to work on this project... based on their expectations you have only 1,33 minute for 1 task (map), it is not much... but after they asked me to reduce my time it made only 1,15 minutes per task...
first they asked me to reduce time by 250 minutes, I contacted them that I do not understand why, I wrote them 2 emails till I received the info that I did less tasks than I reported... no explanation, nothing, only reduce your time, and at the end the beautiful sentence: Please be aware that Raters who repeatedly cannot meet the base level expectations of the program from month to month may be removed from the program. I will not work on this map project anymore after that... I dont think I am the only one who is not keen of this project as they are constantly sending emails to rate these stupid maps
I do not know how it works in Ireland, but I checked now my emails to be sure about answer. I get the information about guidilines at the moment when my exam started, so at the moment when I received an email called RATING EXAM INVITATION. In this email was mentioned a link to General Guidilines. So I do NOT get it BEFORE taking the exam.
I am new here. Even I got the job offer from lionbridge as an internet assessor. They sent me some documents like consulting agreement, code of conduct. It is mentioned that i might get pornographic pop ups and other adult materials. Did anyone else get some documents that mentions it? Or did anyone who works for lionbridge encounter such material. I am concerned as I really need the money but don't want to get into trouble accessing something illegal (child pornography etc) . Advices greatly appreciated. Also is it safe to give them the bank details? Anyways I don't have much in my account. I was thinking of opening a new account for them. But I want to go forward only if it is legal and I don't get into trouble later. Please reply..Thank you for reading
