Fiverr? Too much Kafka…

In our recruitment prevention series, today, we take a look at Fiverr. Fiverr will help you prevent hiring people by connecting gig buyers and gig sellers.

Let’s see if Fiverr lives up to it’s promise.

This is great. Easy. Good quality. Not expensive. Fiverr is great. Thus far…

Step 6

See your order cancelled without explanation. See Fiverr withholding transaction fees and claiming ownership of the fruits of your labor. Try hard to get the best experience, per their request, now that you are in contact with Fiverr. Try again… Never mind.

Conclusion

Fiverr works as a platform, but they go all Kafkaesk on you whenever their fuzzy algorithms see fit. They take your time, your money and your intellectual property. Sad. This way they’ll never shed their infinitesimal BBB accreditation. We’ll look into alternatives like Upwork.com, Peopleperhour.com, Freelancer.com and Guru.com shortly and will try to forget this mind bogling experience.
