    Ive also been looking at their different roles. Social media assessor, ad assessor, crowd work. I did just post a new thread asking about these roles. My apologies could have put it here.
    Is the process the same for all of these roles then?
    I applied with leapforce for web assessor, failed part 3 but can re sit but its all 3 exams. It was a long week last time. Hence why im looking at alternative.
    But thinking they are all the same process.
    And after reading reviews and comments on here is it really worth such a hard exam to get little work with poor pay eg crowd work seems to pay poorly. Is the exam as long for that? Then I know with leapforce you have reviews...im guessing lionbridge perhaps does too.
    Sorry if I seem a bit negative but really don't want to waste my time if something isnt lucrative.

    Any info on lionbridge roles would be great. I did apply to lionbridge before leapforce some weeks ago but was declined because I was doing the leapforce process. Now im not sure which road to try if any.
    I know ive spoken to some of you and you all say do leapforce re sit no point doing another exam elsewhere when I could pass this time. But just wondering if id be suited to another role as mentioned above? However if they all have same exam process I guess I may as well do leapforce first.

    Thank you :-D

    That's the problem with LB. Lots of different roles advertised, and you don't really get to find out what they're all about until you're actually in the qualification process. Obviously we could be sharing info on here, only this thread isn't very active anymore unfortunately. Namely because it got overshadowed by the LF one, and everyone now just seems to apply there instead.

    I'm assuming the role you got instantly rejected for was LB Internet Assessor? If so, that's 99% the same as the LF job, with the same end client. The only other LB role I know anything about is Ads Assessor, which I'm currently trying to qualify for. This is pretty much the same as the WSE job at Appen, and is for a different client. And I would say both the exam and job are more difficult than for the LF role. (Not that I've actually done either job at this stage, of course.) I was also in the exam process for LB Web Content Judge a couple of weeks ago, but I see they're no longer advertising that on their website.

    So if I were you, I would just do the LF resit. If you've already taken the exam once, then you've done all the background work anyway, right?

    hi mallrat yeh you are probably right. i have up until monday to click the re sit test link, but i want to know if the moment i click the resit link do i get the exam re sit info and deadline instantly or do i have to wait until LF contact me again with the schedule. ive emailed them to find out. its just another full on week to possibly not pass again and its re taking all 3, not just the 3rd which instantly puts me off. debating just leaving it all for awhile and look into other things.

    When you get this job it's hours and days and weeks and months of doing those same tasks over and over again (with some others thrown in for variety), so if you're struggling to muster the enthusiasm to re-do the first 2 parts of the re-sits then perhaps this work isn't for you?

    Just want you to know what you've got to look forward to if you do manage to pass. It's not easy, or fun, work.

    I think it's relatively easy and quite interesting work, but then I only do 10 hours a week. It would be a grind doing this full time, but it's not really a full time job.

    I'm with you on this one.....I often find myself doing other work, that pays less, simply because it is more interesting!

    hmmm food for thought. id only do part time if i did. but im going to have a serious re think. as i must admit it is rather boring. its not like you are paid £10000000s. must be a good thing for most people but i dont think id have the enthusiasm long term, think ill look into a few other things.

    Just wondering if anyone knows if it's possible or even worthwhile appealing a score on the monthly feedback? Had one that I failed and there's a really good reason why this happened (LB admit this reason too) and I'm really frustrated that I've been put onto review because of it!

    bank account question
    LB pays in Euros which the bank automatically converts on any given day whether the rate is high or low, has anyone opened a euro account so we can receive payments in euros and convert in our own leisure. If so can you please recommend a basic account?

    Thanks

    Hello everyone. Im quite new here but have found usefull information in this thread. I had a question regarding lionsbridge and appen butler hill regarding the internet assessor and web search analyst positions. i applied for both and made it past pre screens and am now scheduled for tests for both companies. the tests dates are a day apart (which scares me in case they are with the same testing company or something... idk). i did use the same email to apply for both jobs ( /noob). the only 'red flag' they gave me was that lionsbridge said if i have tested with or worked with leapforce i wont be able to work for them but they didnt say anything about appen. if i had to choose between the 2 i would take appen just because it seems to be more set hours and they pay you/give you a bonus for completing the exam (so i hear). i would love to do both jobs if possible. should i just only take the exam for one company and ignore the other or just go for it and take both exams in case i fail one? i have heard mixed answers all over the place about conflicts of interest and some people say they cross check emails, ips, etc. Do these companies run the same contracts or clients? Ill stop babbling but any info in this situation would be appreciated. Thanks in advance and good luck to anyone else trying to get on board!

    tldr: any possible way to work for lionsbridge and appen at the same time? (specifically those 2 companies in 2014)

    Whoop Whoop!!! Just got an email from them for an Internet Assessor role! EXCITED!! Wanted to get into Lionbridge or leapforce - guess since I got my undergrad last year I qualify lol. Only issue is I can't sit the tests right now, since i'm just wrapping off my masters degree. I thought i'd take weeks before I heard anything as i've heard nothing from Leapforce. ^^

    Curiosity got the better of me and I've just applied to be an assessor. I'm assuming the fact that I already work full time might go against me but I've been completely honest in my application so I guess we'll just see. I spend most of my free time on a laptop so shouldn't be an issue finding 10 hours a week as long as the rate of pay is worth the effort.

    Ideal scenario is that this provides enough income for me to drop one day of employed working so I dedicate more time to studying.

    I don't think it will as long as you can commit the time, I listed I was doing a masters and working part-time in two jobs. They seemed to not bother. The issue I have now is they want me to complete a bunch of stuff for the 18th lol! I totally don't have the time since my dissertation is due in on the 28th lol :P

    Failed Lionbridge 3rd exam 2 times in the space of 2 weeks. I'm done here.. impossible to know what they want. Part 1 and 2 are relatively easy. Part 3 seems like a game of luck and ultimately if I passed they'd have quality issues with me because even after reading the guildlines multiple times, I still don't know what they want. No feedback either. They continually say use your judgement but it's not true. They don't accept your judgement, even when it makes perfect sense.

    I wish LP would move forward, my application has been pending for months. I passed Appen, but they've not offered me any work. What to do now then?
