Outragous cost

I feel that TT is not even attempting to make any changes to their new pricing and quoting system. Days and weeks have come and gone and despite what our professionals are posting - not a budge?! I've lost hope in this company to work for me.

Re: Outragous cost

I'm really trying to be patient and somewhat hopeful. But I just can't chance sending quotes to potential clients at this time. It's too costly to risk that much... almost half of my hourly charge. So waiting for a change is presently my only option.

Re: Outragous cost

I do have to give respect to Thumbtack because at first, this was a site that I know personally has helped small business pros get up and going. I have, since posting this topic, spoken with Techs/Op Managers who work for the larger companies. They say that hire and pay people to work the jobs they bid on because losing the money will not really hurt their bottom line in the short term and long term it puts small businesses and start-ups out of business because they cannot be profitable. Thumbtack is giving the "Big Guys" a neat and easy way to slowly (or quickly) put us in a tight spot. Please support us... we will keep making you money if we make money. If we go out of business the "Big Guys" won't need to bid here anymore. We can help each other grow!!!

The mods don't listen! All they do is censor any negative comments!

Re: Outragous cost

If you are honestly listening to your customers, then dont close your ears and expect a relationship.
If I quoted to 10 different people and those quotes cost 50$ per quote...I'm 500$ out ...and I might get one job or of that. Ok maybe 2 jobs. You do the math 
We are making a living out of this ladies and gents...not getting super rich... I know who's trying hard to do so...

If no resolutions are available by end of the month...I'm out too period
