Thumbs up Leapforce ?

Without asking anyone to violate confidentiality or anything.. I just wanted to know if anyone knows a couple things about Leapforce?

Is this full time or considered more filler work?

Is it generally accurate to assume after the 6 month contract you are done working with them or is that just done to make sure you are doing a good job?


btw.. Im not a newbie here.. Been here for years but cant reset my password so had to make a new account

Leapforce - yes, you can do it full time. I'm actually an evaluator with them but have chosen to move forward in another profession, so I'm not really doing it anymore. But it is a great company and pays well. They have no limits on hours I don't think, but they do have a minimum requirement, which is easy to meet. Far as the 6 month contract - that's hard to say. I haven't been with them that long. Some contracts end and some continue. Probably depends on how well you are doing. (That's a guess)

good luck with it! Oh, and there's a board on here dedicated to search engine evaluators - Google Rater.

I'm in the testing phase with them, but from what I've seen here and on other boards, you can get renewed after 6 months. I don't know what goes into that decision, but it's likely a matter of your productivity and accuracy with rating results.

I have worked as a google rater for about 1 1/2 yrs, first w/WFL, now w/LF. I consider it PT work. Work can be unlimited or sporadic. I have not reached the 6 month deal w/LF yet, so can't comment on contract renewals. I've heard of both renewals and not (check the Google rater thread). I find it to be an excellent non-phone egg, but I don't consider it my primary. They do have strict productivity and accuracy requirements, as well as zero tolerance for NDA violations. I believe most who are let go or not renewed, are not meeting those requirements. Always have a backup plan. HTH

PS I thought I already posted this, so if it shows up 2x, my apologies.

If I pass my test and get accepted (I find out in two days!) I'll be looking at LF as a temp gig. I'll do as many tasks as are available to me first thing in the a.m. Then I'll keep up my primary contract with a transcription company, and make extra cash with writing gigs.

I tend to view all of my eggs as temporary. Yes, my transcription egg is steady, provides as much work as my mind can stand to focus on, pays really well, and I've had it for three years, but that's no guarantee that it will continue.

It's the same with writing gigs. You never know when a company is going to crash and burn.

My roommates and son think I'm strange for constantly applying to new gigs and tracking down new work, but it's because I never know when one company will go bye-bye.

Good question. That's what mine always says too.

I worked for Leapforce for 8 months. During that time I worked about 30 to 36 hours per week. I never tried to work over the amount so I'm not sure if it's allowed. They say that the max is 30 but like I said, I went over every so often. When my contract was six months old, they sent me an email stating that were going to renew it if I wanted to. At that time, I went ahead and renewed it.

A word of advice, pay careful attention to your quality reviews. If they don't think you're doing a good job, your contract can be terminated immediately and without warning.

I think you could definitely do it full-time, but it would be wise to consider it temporary. My contract was extended after the first 6 months, but then terminated in the middle of the second six-months and I didn't have any problems with my productivity levels or my reviews. Maybe they just wanted "new blood". I have no idea, and as far as I know they won't respond to any inquiries of that nature. It was only a small egg for me as I have something else I do full-time, so I just moved on.

I really liked the work though and never had a problem getting paid. I would say communication is the one weak link in their operation.
