“While the quality of the final product was to my satisfaction, I had two serious issues that will preclude me from hiring this Elancer again:
1.) The project was completed way past the deadline. While I am flexible and am understanding about delays, I did not receive the work until a full month past the project deadline -- and only then after I had finally threatened to go to Elance to get the project cancelled if I did not receive my work that I'd paid for.
The worst part, however, was that I checked this Elancer's profile and saw that he had completed at 11 other jobs while not completing mine. I can understand a delay, if the Elancer is working on my project to get it done. I cannot understand a delay, however, if my overdue project is being put on the backburner while other projects have a higher priority.
2) Trouble following directions. I had to tell thsounds no less than 3 times to make a certain edit in one of my videos before it was done. ”
“Having side projects had little impact on this project's turn around since my assistant handles the extra work. You told us it was ok to extend the deadline while I was still editing those long recordings. Voice talent also had problems with his voice and we had to postpone a recording session we had left. There was nothing I could do in that regard. I'm really surprised for your feedback. ”
