Me and FlexJobs

In recent, I've been looking into places that will help me in my major which is Marketing/Merchandising.  Love copywriting but the market is a little saturated with people willing to work for pennies.  Anyway, I heard that FlexJobs was a decent place to find online or offline work.  The only catch was that services are fee-based.

I got the 3-month subscription to get an even feel without a real commitment (which is around $40-50 a year).  Testing is free, there are decent articles and a few small perks just for being a member (consumer goods with a minor discount).  Like most reviews say, there's no spam or pressure to join some fake college or anything that does not pertain to actual work.

While I was not terribly active (I've got school and client as I type), I saw that Lionsbridge saw my profile and felt I was a match for a position.  I've heard good things about them, so I wanted to keep things going.  My subscription expires next week so I wanted to renew early.

But their system would not take my payment.  I even tried different cards but nothing. So I write them letting them know what was going on.  I got a message stating to contact Jeremy in Billing.

Now speaking as a marketing person, it would have been nice if Jeremy had contacted me to walk through the process and they can make a sale.

But nooooooooo.  I had to go through their tiresome phone menu and leave a message, again.

This is to make those aware that some of these places may have good intentions but lack the right due diligence to stay in the game.  I'm on the lookout for another "FlexJobs".
