“Very poor provider! I've given this guy numerous chances, this job should have been completed in a couple of days but has been pending for months. On October 14th he sent me a message "Dear Alexander today I am
sick of the flu so I hope I will be better tomorrow and make changes to your document. Best Regard's". On November 3rd I have yet to get
anything from him. Following day again he said he would do it, I waited and then he starts telling me this "What do you think it Is easy. I just only have your job. You are so bored client." What he provided to that point is beyond poor quality, he basically did a front page and threw up some headers in microsoft word rather than do a professional design. I am not a designer at all and could have done that in 30 minutes. He market the job complete before the work was approved as well.”
“This client told me that everything is Ok and pay me after a couple of days he want from me money 50 dollars back. I provide him unlimited revisions and three different versions of his document. The best prove for this is that client give me the second job when I finished the first one. He don`t know what he want, so my dear clients take attention if you want to work with this guy and look his profile before you start to work with him. I have more than 50 projects successfuly done here on Elance in less than a year so this comment is not important for me because I know that this is not true.”
Basically 5-7 page documents with a distinguishing intro page and the inner pages can stay within the same/similar format. We do these quite often and have had trouble finding someone reliable, which is as important as quality, so please only bid if you can get stuff done on time!

“Not happy at all with this provider. At some point she simply decided to stop making edits, even though I paid for them already and released the money per her repeat requests (lesson learned) and instead of at least telling me that she just decided to stop answering. I wasted 10 days trying to get a hold of her, she only replied when I stopped asking her to do the work and just asked for the editable file so I could hire someone else. She didn't even have the decency to answer like a normal person. Design itself is mediocre and required a number of modifications and still will. She cluttered pages with text, couldn't pick out right photos, etc.”
“I wish I had read feedback on this client before submitting a proposal. Client asked for artists to bid on a project that was 5-7 pages long. By the time the dust settled, it was 25 pages and not (surprisingly) included searching for stock photos that client didn't actually want to pay for but, rather, wanted images snatched from the internet (I DID provide, free of charge to client, stock images from BigStock Photo at my own expense) plus various color options. You would think, given the scope of work being 5x what was in the original proposal that the pay would increase 5x. No, I got an additional $40 for my trouble. Client said project was a rush and I did everything possible to meet deadlines – my original proposal having a 3-day turnaround. Project dragged out on client's end from May through July, at which point client fell off the face of the planet (but did release funds, thank goodness) until resurfacing in September. At this point, I had ceased being a provider on Elance and my status reflected this change in my availability. That didn't stop this client from sending multiple harassing messages demanding further extensive changes. When client requested the working files, I provided them. Not sure why I have to respond to emails within 24 hours when client can take 3 months.
I am a five-star provider through Elance with a history of very satisfied customers who have continued to work with me both on and off of Elance. I pride myself on doing good work, timely work and being very easy to work with. But I do NOT allow myself to be walked on or disrespected. I am a professional designer with more than 20 years experience. I couldn't care less about this 2-star review as I am no longer freelancing on Elance. But for future potential providers, I highly recommend you take my feedback and the feedback of others into consideration before submitting proposals on this client's jobs.”

“Extremely disappointed with this provider. They took nearly 3 months to do a job that was contracted for just a few days and at the end still could not get it done. Every time I asked them to correct something, a new issue would arise. They cleared many updates they did in error and were again unable to restore most of them; I was forced to hire someone else to repair their work. They deleted our testing environment and were unable to restore it. They collected money, marked the project complete before it was done. They were unable to find a simple affiliate plugin and simply didn't do that part of the project, yet they still collected fees for it and refused to refund even that part. It got to the point where I couldn't have them logging into the system anymore, because literally every single time a new error would be made on the live site. The amount of time lost and what I had to pay to fix up their awful work has far outweighed what I paid them. The new programmer was able to fix what they tried to for weeks on end in a matter of hours. I don't recommend these guys to anyone at any price, absolutely terrible experience!”
“Totally Revenge or loss the elance disput... if any client feel we can provide whole description of message and details
Request to other freelance to beware from this client or ready for lots of extra work without any payment
We started with some listed points with agreed amount and we have completed that within 4-5 days after that client provide lots of extra points some of done by us in free but after provide again list of tasks we refused in free so he created 2nd milestone with list of task for which we both agree but the story was same after complete that points he need some more
Regarding affiliated extension we have provide him extensions but as he is habitual of free he need free extension or in very less amount and before start the job i clearly asked him that this task is only possible with extension only as we were not agreed on extension we were happily ready to refund for task of installation and i think which cost would be not more then $25-30 as our agreed milestone was around $175 with around 10 tasks listed but amazing he need all $155-$170 in refund and forgot about functionality he asked in free :) and we have to fill dispute which was in favor of us and that the reason for this feedback
And lastly client is totally nontechnical he will provide you listed task you would query for task he will come after two days with a amazing reply which doesn''t mean anything so definitely it will increase the time-frame
and last point he provide PSD in starting and we have done design accordingly but surprisingly at last he says he need new design after 2 month and we need to create new graphics/PSD for him without money..
Anyway all the best for your site also please don''t mark such feedback for your frustration and i suppose my other clients feedback saying enough about my work.”
Simple job, we want a wp blog with adsense setup and a couple basic text pages (we'll fill in the content for them). We would look for the provider to recommend a theme that fits the theme of the blog, which is controversial discussion (ex: going against the popular news, politics, commonly accepted norms, etc).
