I notice that it states that you can only work a maximum of 20 hours per week unless approved for more hours....Is it ever possible to get more than 20 hours?

Yes. There are times when they raise the limits and they let you know via email and on the rater portal.

Thanks....im debating whether leapforce or lionbridge is better because ive heard that with leapforce you get paid a little less but you have unlimited hours but with lionsbridge you can only do the 20. is it more than 20 hours often?

thanks

I've been working since February and I'd say they extended the hours about 3 times between then and now.

I don't know if anyone is still checking this thread, but....

I just applied on 5/27 and still haven't heard back about my application. How long did it take other folks to hear back on their application?

I got an autoconfirmation that it was recieved but nothing else with more info about tests or anything. When I log in at the SAP-E Recruiting page it says my application is "in process." Is there something else I'm supposed to do that I've just missed?

Thanks folks!

It can take a couple of weeks or so before you hear back. Depends on how busy they are w/ applications. I do know that you don't hear back if you don't pass which is kind of sucky. Hope you hear something soon!

It took me about 3 weeks to hear back.

I'm really glad I ran across this thread and decided to apply. I've been working for a little over 2 weeks, and I'm really enjoying it so far. It's almost like playing a game, trying to figure out what rating makes sense in as little time as possible. My first timesheet was approved, and my productivity has been over the acceptable mark for the last 2 weeks, so those are two things I'm not stressing over much any more. Hopefully my quality rating will be okay when I finally get one. So far, I've only gotten one type of task, and I'm hoping I get to try out some of the others before too long. (And hoping I think those tasks are fun, too.)

I think it took them about a month to get back to me. Maybe it wasn't quite that long, but I remember that it was a long time.

Hey!
I just started the job with LB! Quick question to those who have already started the rating process! How do we track our time and tasks? Do we have an actual tracker or are we just required to write down the time that we have on our computer clock and how many tasks we have done?
Any tips for a new rater?!

Thanks!!!

So far, I'm just keeping track using pen and paper - I write down my start and end times, and make tally marks for every task. If you Google "Lionbridge task tracker" you should be able to find information on a free tracking program that's out there. I don't know anything about how well it works.

I use the freeware mentioned (lionbridge task control) and it's been very helpful. You have to keep track of the type of task, but you click a button when you complete a task and it keeps track. I've found it easier to remember to do that then mark a piece of paper, just my personal preference, especially with tasks that only take 15-20 seconds.

He also has a pay version that does more, but I've been pretty happy with the freeware.

I couldn't download the software mentioned for some reason. I just use a Firefox timer add-on and make tally marks on a notepad. Works well enough.

I have no idea why some people talked about having math on the test. The test I took had no math at all, and the job requires no math knowledge (beyond being able to keep track of time worked and tasks completed.) Some people mentioned a pre-test, and I wonder if that is something in addition to the 2-part test I took. Maybe some people are asked to take a pre-test if their resume doesn't clearly show they're qualified?

I don't recall any math on the tests, either.

I had math on part one of my test and it was hard for me. I'm grateful I could use online calculators.

For those who are applying/testings - good luck!

I suck at math. But I am very interested in this.

That shouldn't be an issue since it's a totally different line/type of work. Companies like LeapForce are competitors, not ChaCha.

I have a couple questions for those that have been hired and are working for LB.

1. What kind of qualifications are they looking for on a resume? My resume probably looks a little strange, since I worked as a buyer/planner for 12 years, then went back to school and just graduated with my elementary ed degree. (no teaching jobs around here, atm!)

2. If you are working the full 20 hours a week, are you making a decent amount of money? I mean, is it the same or better than getting a part time job outside of the home?

Thanks!!

I don't know what they're looking for on a resume, but they say they hire college students, so if you have more work experience and education than the typical college student, you're probably fine.

The pay is shown on their website, but it's hard to find - it's $14.50/hr. Better than some part time jobs, worse than others.

Thanks for the reply! That would more than help to supplement our income, atm. And, with my youngest in pre-k half days, it would be hard to find something for more money, without putting him in daycare.

Also, are you working for them or as a self-employed sub-contractor?

For those currently working for LB, how long have you been with them? How many hours do you work consistently, is it close to 20/week?
Thanks!!

I just received an email from them saying that there is a high number of applicants and they are being processed in the order they were received so it could be a long wait.
