Default Has anyone heard back from Valley Direct?

Hi Ladies

Has anyone heard back from Valley Direct Media since sending in their sample last week? I just got an email informing me that they'd paid me the $4.00 and that they would be in touch soon, but that's it. There's been no word on whether or not I was accepted.

Did they cover your PayPal fees?

Yeah, this company takes a while in the beginning. She might not be hiring right this minute, but will take you on shortly. Remember, it is only 1 woman handling all this. But, once you get one, you'll get assignment after assignment!

You get the full $4.00 .. no fees.

I filled out the preliminary application on their webpage last week. I did get an email saying that they had gotten it and to be on the lookout for a test assignment, but so far nothing else! It does make a lot more sense now that I know there's only one person handling the writing applications! Hopefully they will get to me soon. In the meantime I'm working on getting some other "eggs."

Default Valley Direct

I have heard back from Valley Direct. I was hired but the pay seemed sub-par to me so I opted not to write for them.

I got an email a few weeks ago saying that they aren't hiring right now. It said I would get payment within a few days, but I haven't received it yet. Has this happened to anyone else? Thanks.

Everytime I apply for it and got a response back from her, she claimed that all of the positions are filled. I recently did their writing sample and I just got the same response as all of the other times. I am hoping that my other clients would hire me so I won't have to wait forever on trying to get in to write for em. It's pretty discouraging especially when this happened to you more than a few times.

Default The Woman That Runs Valley Direct Is A Moron

Hi all,

I'm new to the forum but I've been a freelance writer for awhile now. Last week I applied to this Valley Direct company. They sent me an email telling me to write a sample article and send it back. They also asked me to answer 2 questions. I responded to the email with the answer to the questions and the writing sample. The woman writes me back and says I need to add a title and that she doesn't see the keyword phrase I was supposed to include (which I did include). So I sent the writing sample back with a title on top and I highlighted where I included the keyword phrase. She then replied and told me that because I didn't make the changes she asked for (which I did) she had decided not to work with me. I replied to her email and said that I did, in fact, make the changes she requested. That was 6 days ago and I never got a response back. So my opinion is, don't waste your time on Valley Direct.

I'm curious if anyone actually got paid. The email I received said I would be paid within 1 to 2 business days. That was weeks ago. Thanks.
