I have been a user of freelancer.com for over 2 years. I started out as a freelancer to find jobs and now, I also get work done by other freelancers through the website.
And, I must say, my experience has been fantastic. I got hired for a project within a week of joining. There are numerous employers and a great number of projects going through. On other hand, while I wanted to get an article written, I just posted a project for free an received over 20 bids to choose from. And, the work was completed extremely well by my freelancer and was pretty cost effective compared to the agency locally.
What excites me about freelancer.com is its nice, user-friendly and ever-improving interface, lower costs than everyone else in the market, plus, excellent support staff including concierge services. Moreover, the staff is ever ready to listen to your suggestions for the website and rewarding you for them, too. Isn't this great?
And, freelancer.com is triple Webby Awards' winner for employment category. What more?
Recently, freelancer.com has started contests in every job category, and contests are a nice way to get the work done as well as to earn for freelancers.
Overall, I am more than satisfied with freelancer.com and highly recommend it for finding jobs as well as getting them done.
1st anyone using this site will soon notice how user unfriendly it is. Finding what you want is like a maze and the pages take a long time to load.
If you want to withdraw a deposit for the 1st time you have to wait 2 weeks which really put me out.
The site charges for everything - even editing your job!
All in all this website is geared up to make money for itself ahead of providing service. It's just a dumb, badly designed website - ...... and If you can - go elsewhere!
I have been scammed by this company, beware of them! Beware. 206 Dollar I have caught my card for a service I never used. Deceitful, dirty and dark. Fatal! My score is 0. Becareful with them.
I second everything below. Long term Vworker, liked them. They sold out and cashed in, and this freelance site is not usable in any way. No one will answer questions, no one will respond, no one will call you back. Their whois record Is fake. No idea what support means. Oh, and I too wish I'd had one iota of an idea that the site wouldn't work. Perfect example of personal greed run rampant. Broken trust. So sad. Elance, here I come. hey freelancer, contact me if you care. I know you don't. Dan@McGlaun.com
I started with this website as an employer for several projects, and its really great the amount of savings i did through freelanceer.com
i really highly recommend it to anyone considering a freelance job or has a project and want some good talents to help him/her on!
