Alpha CRC unprofessional, opaque, non-payment, wage theft, takes advantage of freelancers, late payment, does not pay translators Cambridge United Kingdom
I am a freelance translator, and I have done four jobs for Alpha CRC. The project managers with whom I have worked have been professional and competent people. However, the company is terrible about payment. Even with a payment period of 60 days, all four payments have been late.
The company did pay me for the first two jobs I did, though both payments were made weeks later than what was agreed. However, I submitted the third project - of over $3500 - almost four months ago, and I have not yet been paid. All of my queries at this point are either ignored or deflected with a cut-and-paste response in which I am told how much my patience is appreciated. This is particularly disconcerting as I think back about how I nearly killed myself getting it done on time.
I am in a full-time graduate program at the moment, which meant that I had several nights in which I got fewer than three hours of sleep because I was doing work for Alpha CRC on top of my studies. [continued below]....
Payment for my fourth project just became overdue a few days ago. Meanwhile, I am broke.
It is important to note that the company has already sent me two more job proposals (which I have refused) since payment for the third project became overdue, so it is clear that there is not a problem with the quality of my work.
I realize that most folks come here as buyers, not suppliers. However, consider the risks of dealing with a company that is so terrible about fulfilling its financial obligations. This speaks volumes about what goes on behind the curtains: trust someone else with your projects.
