Approves of CEO

I have been working at Time Etc as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

I was matched with and selected nearly immediately by a client to be a Personal Assistant. Was able to complete several small tasks immediately. They are based in the UK, but the staff is super responsive to emails and phone calls. They don't make it easy to get selected, they are looking for a certain type of person.

Cons

The clients sometimes expect you to be on call to them 24/7, even though you set a schedule that shows your availability.

Advice to Management

So far, so good.

    Pros

    The support is amazing! They have an online help section and a person you can contact if you need help. I also receive calls to check on how things are going with clients which is great. They have an online system for tracking clients, your time, invoices etc. which is easy to use. I receive regular notifications of work available, both one time tasks and regular clients so I don't have to go looking for work as it comes to me! There is plenty of work available and I would highly recommend using Time Etc. to anyone, especially if you are new to doing work virtually from home. The biggest pro is I have not paid one penny to the company as they get their payments from the clients.

    Cons

    Having to pay my own employment taxes but I knew that going in and have budgeted for it.

    Advice to Management

    Advertise the fact that you also create and provide a web site free of charge for each Assistant to promote and gain clients. Keep up the great work!
