Their seems to be a disconnect - I applied as a social media evaluator and sent in all my paperwork then was sent other offers until one day I was sent information on being a social media evaluator - I did this for about 4 months - in fact I was doing it every day - I would get e-mails to keep up the good work , I receive one e-mail that there was a concern about my responses being inconsistent (which they really were not might be the same company with two different ads and might rate them differently based on the ad itself) Then there is the second part "Bake off" it is called were you compare two different companies well given that I might see two different ads from the same company - I would rate the difference based on the company - not the ad. , Yesterday I could not get in and check the junk mail folder and found an e-mail terminating me for being inconsistent - Like the last time I received a warning about my evaluations - I replied trying to clarify how I rated things and that I could use a little more feedback - no reply what so ever. So I wonder if these ads are intended to sell you products and if you don't buy you get warnings or if they are actually looking for real evaluations - Hard to say but I am very disappointed in Lionbridge since I see similar issues listed here
After working for the company for a couple of weeks I would get an "atta boy" email followed by an email that said my evaluations were too similar??? No specific recommendations on how to improve. I got a couple of pats on the back and a couple of the "too similar" notices and was told they would not be using me because my answers were too similar. I was evaluating information on 5 multiple choice questions and a written answer. It is true many of my answers were similar because I evaluated them as being similar. I believe the purpose of this type of job is simply to gather information for a customer to use to call it a poll based on a certain world view so they could use the statistics to support their world view. People who do not share their world view and evaluate the ads in that vein are eliminated from the program so as not to skew the results in the wrong direction.
I applied for a work at home position. Never heard back. About a month later I got an email from someone who said that they had a job working 1 hour a day, 5 days a week and it needed a computer. I replied I was interested. I never heard back so I followed up. The woman told me I couldn't work on that specific job because I had worked on a previous job with Lionbridge (which is false I was never even hired or offered a job).
There seems to be a disconnect between the actual employment and the paperwork. I've been asked to fill out questionnaire after questionnaire only to be asked for more paperwork. I've filled out employment agreements and I continued to get more. I've sent them questions on protocol and assignments which go unanswered. I finally opted out. A complete waste of time.
I gave Lionbridge 1 star because I also applied to them and was invited to send them my pre-employment information to start working with them...including an I-9, even...but never heard a single thing from them since. That was several months ago. Needless to say I'm quite disappointed with them. If they aren't hiring, they should stop advertising that they are.
So far I worked 2.5 hours. In 4 weeks. Their software worked for 2 days, then they told me I needed to do work I wasn't paid for to use the software correctly. I can't say more as there is an NDA.Suffice it to say they wanted me to be online A LOT. I was stoked to get the job, but very quickly disappointed. They are age frienndly in that they hired me, but not age friendly in that seem to want me to work for no pay.
I too filled out all the paperwork,scanned and faxed and never heard back from them!
I am an almost 75yo male and was hired with no problem.
I applied, they sent me all the forms and told me I would start and then never heard from them again.
Love this work! Reason why only 4 stars is because I wish I could have more hours.
Great part time job. I can work from home in my pj's if I want. Only a few hours a week helps pay for those little extras.
Can do it whenever you want up to 20 hours a week. Not hard work.

After reading the comments by those who express their perspective of age related discriminating practices by more than a few employers, I felt very concerned for older workers that need/desire employment. I wonder if these employers understand that it is not just the revenue from young adults that keep them in business. I wonder how they would survive if the older generation would stop supporting their businesses. I also wonder if these employers understand the principle of sowing and reaping? I am grateful to your agency for providing the results of your survey and your commitment to provide older workers with reliable job leads.
