Complaint Review: thebigword
There are number of complaints posted by translators and employees of the very same company on various websites regarding the issue in question. thebigword was banned from posting job notifications on several websites due to the "chronic" non-payments and complaints about the conduct. Furthermore, I've been contacted many times by the same company requesting my services. After I declined to work with this company and asked to remove my information from their system, I keep receiving calls from unknown numbers - the company's operators connect me directly to the clients in different countries without even announcing the name of the company or stating the nature of the call. Each time I have to ask the clients which company the call has been placed through, and each time I have to explain that I do not work for this particular company. I find such business practices to be unprofessional and unfair, to say the least. Before accepting any jobs from the said company, check posts about it and make sure that they will not rip you off like many translators who have been taken advantage of and cheated by this "bigword"!
