We are seeking a skilled Wordpress Genesis person for a couple of projects.
The first project is an overhaul of one website - WellnessBakeries.com. This overhaul will include a number of integrations (ie - ShipStation, new shopping cart, etc) as well as modifying our theme to make mobile friendly with improved SEO and changing some...
“READ BEFORE HIRING: Chris required us to fund AND release 50% of funds up front. It was all downhill from there. When deadline #1 passed with NO work or communication, we asked about the status. Chris was defensive and showed no work. A week later the initial work was loaded. Deadlines were promised for the remainder. Initial work was sloppy and did not meet specs. Every subsequent deadline was missed, followed by long excuses and combative dialogue. Chris cancelled more than one scheduled call last minute. One time he claimed his child was ill and he had to run out. Not long after, we received time-stamped notification that an integration was just made. In other words, he lied that would be unavailable, while doing work he said had already been completed.
Chris invoiced for plugins he claimed were purchased. Upon payment, we asked for receipts and license #s. He became defiant. Said we did not need to verify authenticity. He finally provided receipts. These were sent to Envato. They verified that the purchases were made AFTER we requested proof. Dates on emails were FORGED to hide this fact. Envato also confirmed that some installed plugins were PIRATED, putting us in legal jeopardy. On multiple occasions, Chris threatened that under no circumstances would we get our initial money back
despite the fact that we NEVER mentioned or asked for a refund.
Chris also attempted emotional manipulation, threatening that a bad Elance review would take away his ability to provide for his child. This is not a bad review. It is an honest one. Summary of our experience: Missed deadlines, lack of accountability, untruths, guilt trips and emotional manipulation, fraudulent billing, six weeks of aggravation (when the project was promised in two), wasted time and money
with virtually no useable work to show for it!
We are happy to share the message series for this project with all interested parties who wish to verify the facts. DO NOT HIRE!
