    Leapforce are currently recruiting Search Engine Evaluators in the UK

    I've previously worked for Lionbridge and thought this may prevent me working for any other company. However I didn't hide it from LF and was still invited to the exam the same day I applied. I did the exam yesterday. I am not too confident, feel like I may have picked up bad habits whilst working for LB. Bit like retaking a driving test, don't think I would pass again!

    Just wondering if anyone is already working for them in case I do manage to pass the exam. Information seems to be minimal. All I have really read so far is that the rate of pay is per minute rather than the hour. Is there a minimum amount of hours per week? How regular is the work? How is payment made? I have read that there isn't any set contract length with LF which is a good thing, not like LB who get rid after 11 months.

    I had the same question asked of me and also replied that it was all my life.

    A couple of days later they asked me to confirm exactly how many years that was

    I had assumed they had my date of birth on the application but I guess not.

    Yes exact same thing for me too!

    Just completed Part 1 of the exam and passed so waiting for Part 2 now. It says it can take up to 4 hours.

    It seems there's not much work though for people who have recently started? I know LB often had phases of no work, so hopefully this won't be for too long!

    I have completed my initial Basic Qualification Questions as part of the application. and have received email inviting me to proceed with the more in depth test which is shown as 3 parts - Theory, Page Quality and Block Utility sections. My question is how many of the Theory questions are there?

    A-ha!, got to the end of it now, think there were either 27 or 32 questions in all (lost count!) requiring 108/128 separate answers.

    Now the 4-hour wait for the next bit

    Is anyone else having problems filling in the payment form? It is asking for so many details.....

    They didn't like it that I had altered my name to Mrs P instead of Pippi. I just entered it how it is on my chequebook but it has to be exactly the same as on your contract apparently.

    It's worth noting that banks (in the UK at least) pay no attention to the Payee details. You could be called A Brown but have a payment to S Smith, it will be accepted anyway.

    All that matters is that the Sort Code/Account number match, or in the case of Leapforce, the IBAN.

    Oh dear, got an automated email saying I failed 2nd part of test "either because you did not receive a passing score or did not attempt to complete the exam"

    Bit annoyed, because I only had 7 pages to rate before the Task Queue was empty so I logged out. Given that part 1 of the test required over 100 separate answers I'm surprised Part 2 would be so short, it doesn't seem right to me.

    Did I trigger an automatic "Thank You and Goodbye" email because I logged out of the rater hub due to there being nothing for me to rate at this time?

    I did part two yesterday and I think that there might have only been about 7 questions

    Yes I just finished part 2 and there wasn't many questions really. Probably about 7. How long did it take to hear about part 2?

    Just to update, I am still unable to take my exam after 3 days. Sent them two more emails, but they just will NOT reply. So, a whole of weekend of twiddling my thumbs for me, when I was expecting to be getting this thing completed, and maybe even starting work some time next week .

    Should I send one more on Monday? Maybe send it 50 times so it can't be missed?! Suppose that may just make them angry though . Plus, on the small chance that they actually bothered to reply and sort out my account, I'd only have one day remaining to take all three parts of the exam, which I'm not sure would even be possible. Think someone mentioned having to wait 4 hours for the last part to come through?!

    And, surprise surprise, they're not active on Facebook either...

    Unfortunately not miamoo - although wasn't really expecting to hear anything over the weekend after what you said! Since receiving the exam email on Wednesday, I've written to them three separate times. Last one would've arrived at about 2pm their time on Friday and was sent to two different addresses. Really unsure about whether to message them again tomorrow, or just leave it now...

    How are you getting on with them? Is there much work available?

    I've been meaning to post this link since I saw it on chat last week. It's an add on to firefox that some raters use to help with timekeeping.

    I've downloaded it but I haven't actually used it yet as I haven't started working - I've been trying to get to grips with the new guidelines so I'm hoping to start tomorrow.

    How is everyone getting on at the moment? I hope it is going well for you all.

    Good luck to everyone currently going through the qualification process too.

    That's disappointing to hear siendi - I hope it picks up soon.

    I think it may be possible that new workers are restricted to the amount of hours they can work. I hardly got any work at first, I was lucky to get an hour in one go, but it has picked up since.
