The Craigslist ad doesn't specify Google as the client, but other postings such as workathomemomrevolution.blogspot.com/2009/03/workforce-logic-hiring-work-at-home.html indicate it is for Google.

Not being able to work after 7pm and on weekends excludes me, as does the lower pay rate. I'm almost at the end of my first year and was hoping to get back on for a second, but not if this is the only way to do it. I understand why they want to pay less, but don't see the reason for restricting the times one can work...

I've already given up and am interviewing for PT brick and mortar jobs. One of them is a manual labor job that requires a GED and basic handyman skills for $19/hr. I've found that the competition for blue collar work is a lot less than white collar. Go figure.
You are blessed to be able to do that "handyman skills" blue collar work. There are those of us who are not physically able to do that sort of thing any longer. It's truly an employer's market out there at the moment.

The link she has on the blogspot is for the Ads Quality Rater position.

The craigslist ad just doesn't make sense to me - none of the job requirements match the official WFL job description on the google website. I really think this is some sort of scam trying to phish for personal information.

I emailed earlier requesting additional information. I will let you know if I hear something.

Looking at it again, it does seem somewhat fishy. Why would this only be posted on a Craigslist ad in Omaha, Nebraska and not nationwide? And why the restrictions on hours and lowered pay? Seems strange to me.

It's also listed in Dallas and Houston's Craigslist, fwiw.

I agree, though, if it's truly $10/hr for quality rater work, that's ridiculous.

The job description sounds a lot more like what LBridge used to have for the other major search engine.

I think you're probably correct. Why would WFL and/or Google resort to craigslist, which has a dubious reputation (and I am being kind) in regard to 'help wanted' listings, when Google's own website is available?

WFL has always advertised on Craigslist; that's where I originally saw the Quality Rater position. This particular position does sound oddly like the Lionbridge position, right down to the job title and working hours, though.
