Can you work at this project with leapforce while working for Appen? I passed the screening test with Appen and waiting to hear from them. I also got the 3 part test scheduled with Leapforce, but I am not sure if I should take it or not? Any advise?
For those of you who passed the leapforce exam, roughly how many total hours did you study? And can you provide a breakout of how many hours you studied for each section? Thank you!
I read the guide once before taking the theoretical exam and then each of the 2 main topics a second time before their respective exam. I actually took a whole week to study the guide thoroughly and then had only a day and a half left to do the three tests. Personally, I would advise against this; I was definitely in a last minute rush. But I passed each of them on first try. I did take my time with some of the tasks, though. Be advised that after staying on a task for about an hour or so a timer will set in and count down. if it runs out before you have checked the appropriate boxes and/or left a comment (if applicable) it will negatively affect your score. Exam 1 and 2 are fairly easy, I did get a few tricky tasks in exam 3, though. Here's a great site that helped me get a good overview of the exam before taking it: passleapforceexam.com/2015/12/29/leapforce-and-lionbridge-exam/
I applied at the end of August. They sent me an email saying I qualified and to submit documents at a given link. When I tried to go to the link, it didn't work. I emailed them and they said the emails were sent out in error and I wasn't really being offered a position. I still haven't heard from them otherwise and it's been almost a month.

I find that I'm unable to get past this each time I login onto my Leapforce account:
We thank all applicants for their interest, however, only those under consideration will be contacted. Please continue to monitor our website and apply for additional opportunities for which you are qualified and may be of interest to you. You will only receive a future email from us if your qualification package has been reviewed and is under consideration.
We are unable to provide feedback or support via email regarding your application status. For all other inquiries, please feel free to contact us at <snipped>
And it's been like this for some time. Is there a way around this? Thanks.
I was/am tired of seeing that same message 'workfromhomedan' is speaking about above when I logged-in to my LF account to check the status of my application for the last 8 months. I re-applied a few days ago(with a new email & account).
For those who've been hired by LF in 2016, how long did it take for LF to respond to your application? Did you have previous experience with a another rating company?
Is anyone currently working on the Nile Project? I am considering applying for it and wanted to know what the role consists of. Also, will Leapforce hire you if you previously worked for ZeroChaos because my contract with ZC was ended a few days ago.
Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum so I'm sorry if this has been discussed before. This is a bit of a long story but I'm not sure what to do.
I started working for Leapforce around 3 years ago, and was doing great until I got overwhelmed with a bunch of other things in my life, and next thing I knew, an entire month went by, and I had forgotten to log in and do a single task. So of course, I got kicked out of the Yukon project. This seems to be the only project that ever has any tasks, so I immediately sent an email asking what needed to be done to get back in. I read somewhere previously that you had to re-take the exam, so I was preparing myself for that.
I received an email a week or so later that said my request was being processed and it could take "up to a couple of weeks" to get a test date. So I waited a month and heard nothing. I sent another email, asking for a test date. I got the same response. I waited another month, and sent yet another email. This time, they waited almost two weeks to answer me, and said this:
"Unfortunately, all exams are being temporarily paused and we are unable to add you to your scheduled exam batch. We will notify you when exams resume and reschedule your exam at a later date. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused."
I felt like I was just not going to get anywhere, so I looked around and ended up applying for ZeroChaos, and got accepted. My start date was October 23, and I got an email yesterday that my project end date was today. I have no idea what I did to cause this, but from what I've been reading in the forums, there's probably nothing I can do about it.
I'm so frustrated at this point I'm in tears. I have an eBay business that I'm trying desperately to grow enough to support myself, but it's not there yet, so I have to have something on the side. I really need the flexibility and convenience of working from home, because the eBay business is so hectic and constantly changing. I made a mistake letting myself get kicked out of the Yukon project and I know that, but I really have no idea what is going on with Leapforce at this point, and I don't know what to do about all of this.
Any suggestions would really help. Thanks!

Lisa, I'm not a Leapforce expert, so I'm only going by their response to you. It sounds like they aren't excluding you from consideration, but getting back with them might not happen soon. The same may be true of ZeroChaos if their message to you said you could reapply after a certain time period. You may have some possibilities for the future, but the situation is you need something right now.
You may not know it, but you're a bit ahead of the game as far as rating goes. Much of rating is an either you get it or you don't thing and quite a few people don't make it past the initial application. You've been accepted by two rating companies, so it seems like you get it. There are other rating companies. If you liked the work you did for LP and ZC, you might check out Appen, Lionbridge and iSoftStone. There are threads about them in this forum and others, such as Work at Home Arena and work-at-home moms (WAHM).
Look around the forums for other work at home jobs, too. Many have sections for job leads and discussions about various companies. That's how you'll find out something about what the work is, scheduling and pay. For just job listings, Rat Race Rebellion is another good resource.
I hope this helps and that you find something good very soon.
Thanks so much for the reply. I applied to iSoftStone today, I hadn't heard of them before. I think I looked at Lionbridge and Appen before, and one of them had weekly hour requirements I couldn't meet and the other wasn't hiring at the time. I hope iSoftStone works out
I was just fired from Leapforce for having a bad quality review. Has anyone ever re-applied to LF using a different email address and gotten hired again? Is there a chance I'd be hired by LB or Appen instead?

Hi guys, Im a new guy at leapforce and have some questions.
I registered with them around mid december last year and actually I did apply for ELIS and TAHOE projects - I also completed the academy for both. But I didnt get a SRT invite now - and they only told me "We will let you know when more raters from your locale are sent SRt invites"
So is anyone here from the philippines too and can give me a hint how long it takes until one gets to work with them. Thanks.

When I login to my Leapforce account, I'm seeing the following message:
"You are currently in the qualification process. Please refer to the latest status email sent to you by Leapforce for instructions on what you need to do to complete your qualification process."
And it's been like that for the last week or so. Yet, I'm not seeing any e-mails from Leapforce with the instructions and all?
I did send them an e-mail asking about it and haven't heard from them. And also called their number only to reach a "Either you know your party extension or leave a message to the operator" message which I didn't follow up on it.
Anyone went through the same thing? And did you eventually hear from Leapforce after reading the same above status info message above in your account? And how long did it take?
