Freelancer绝对是市面上最大的自由职业者网站之一，且多年来有数百万成员加入该网站。 大型用户群也成为Freelancer人气下降首当其冲的问题。 我说的当然是垃圾邮件贴文和垃圾邮件申请者的程度。该平台似乎只会招引而无法节制。
Freelancer的導航看起來對初次使用的人來說可能會有點複雜，但事實上一切都非常人性化 – 說老實話 – Freelancer為其客戶提供的許多功能，但選單和按鈕卻少到不能再少。其註冊過程很簡單，您甚至可以跳過，並通過Facebook帳戶登錄。您可以註冊為自由職業者以尋找工作、徵詢承包商的客戶，或獲得一個可執行這兩項功能的帳戶。
作為一名客戶，您每發布一項工作都會得到大量的應用程式，但要記住，這些應用程序的主要是自動的，並且由腳本生成。這是由仲介自由職業奴隸的機構製作的，並以獨立承包商的身份發布，承諾會以超低廉的價格完成工作。而自由職業者甚至也甘心被奴役 – 但由極低報酬的人力所創造的工作成果相當低劣。
Freelancer – 凭借其极端的吸钱政策 – 没有在雇主与自由职业者之间完工后的货币交易上赚钱。对于您在网站上的活动，Freelancer.com完全无感 – 说难听点可能是「冷漠」 – 只要您用自己的现金获取新的等级以在自由职业列表中提高排名。但是，与需要每月付费就没事的 iFreelance不同，Freelancer.com没忘记从您的钱中抽成。唯一可证明这点和高额的高级帐户费用合理的是您可以通过Freelancer雇用廉价劳工以节省大量资金。

Worst Platform. Don't work with online freelancers.
Billing is completely messed up. I had the transaction statement in front of me yet I still couldn't understand it. My CPA who works for fortune 500 couldn't either. They will auto charge your card even with existing sufficient fund in your Freelancer Account for the project. TL,DR: Hire a real person. Internet always has its limits, and this one is critical.If you are a small business owner looking to have some extra help coming up with marketing/sales works, don't waste your time and effort with this platform. I expected 400USD of research work for my company because neither my staff nor I had the time to do it on our own. Many of them are college/high school students looking for a side gig; the worst ones had no proper English education nor any understanding of the true skills required to complete real works of career professionals. You see people there named "John William" and "Elizabeth Days" in England while their true IP locations are out of India or Bangladesh. Not saying the region implies anything, but I've worked with many very talented & hard-working Indian people in my life, and they usually don't mask their names with something else. I talked with over 20+ freelancers on the platform and picked the seemingly "best" (from his/her past work and experience) among them before I made the decision. Yet the work I received had so many grammatical mistakes and awkward phrasing to the point it wasn't even readable. The entire work I received was worthless because I couldn't use it in any way, shape or form. The freelancer thought I had absolutely no understanding of her time and work, yet I was frustrated because the time & money wasted and how I let my team down by using Freelancer.com thinking we could meet the timeline of our sales/marketing campaign. The freelancer was delusional about her writing skills. It was horrendous. I couldn't help but start to think about the reasons why most freelancers are on there in the first place. Many of them do not have daytime jobs, and I wouldn't be surprised to find most of them don't have real paying jobs at all. You need honest-to-God experience and skills to be able to make money in the real world. Your time or effort means nothing if it turns out your work is not usable anywhere. Just like sales. If the guy decides to not go with it, your work is wasted, and many times it was because you were just simply not good enough, and you're gonna stomach it, get all the feedback you can to know where it went wrong, and in the future get better at it. That's the hard lesson many freelancers on there don't seem understand.If you really need to get work done by someone else because of time limit or shortage of staff, hire a real person. Internet has many great resources, but when it comes to freelancing works, it's tough to find someone who understands and translate your expectations into the work that they do. They're just there for the gig and petty cash.
So the site won't let you talk to the developers via video chat unless you decide to hire that team, and for some complex projects you can't just decide to hire which team by some brief chat msgs, and when you have a call with dev teams outside of the freelancers to discuss more details, your accounts got shut down without any warnings. This logic how it runs doesn't make sense, i will take my money to another platform
Worst site ever - Do not waste your time if you are looking for freelancer
I wanted to get some customization done on my wordpress site. So, I created an account. I spent more than 2 days in trying to finalize a freelancer after speaking to several. I awarded the project to a freelancer, paid the money to freelancer. And suddenly, after a day, Freelancer just closed my account providing no reasons. You have to raise a damn ticket in their horribly designed system just to know why was your account closed. The worst part is they don't tell you the reason why they closed, they send you 1000 lines of Terms and Conditions page link. So, If you want to save your time and looking forward for a genuine platform to get your work done use platforms like Fiverr or Upwork or any other. Even my credit card got blocked because of their terrible susceptible systems.
Too spammy, too all over, too greedy
I am trying to get into freelancing as in the first few steps I have already paid 5 Euros for a 5 min English test which at the end does not even tell me what I did wrong in that 3%. Some jobs are straight job ads, no projects as such. Will see how it goes
Horrible quality control, oversight, accountability, or sanctioning for bad freelancer work product
I used it for editing of application materials and was returned a document that was reformatted but otherwise contained the same typographical errors in the originals I submitted for them to edit. In addition, they didn't bother to read the job announcement and rewrite the CL to fit the announcement. Nor did they complete all four of the documents I hired them to edit. It was a lousy experience and a waste of money. I'm sure there are great editors on the site but it's like playing roulette; how many are great and conscientious will determine your probability of engaging one of the best. But, we as consumers don't know this information going in and Freelancer doesn't need to provide us with it. Stars and reviews can be generated via friends? Is there oversight on the part of Freelancer to ensure these reviews are accurate. Freelancer didn't provide any solutions or sanctioning for the shoddy edits I received.
I got hacked by my Freelancer
My Freelancer got a hold of my account logged in paid himself and closed my user. Than tried hacking into my email and Facebook account. I created a new account with Freelancer to report this fraud. They did nothing. They did care, communication was horrible, i.e., no number to call, chat take so much time to get an agent and you can go hours and hours without anyone responding to your support ticket. Eventually, I called my bank and disputed the charges. Never again I will use this platform.
