The new system is seriously flawed. As a musician, I used to be able to choose which gigs I would apply for based on my availability, the kind of music the customer was looking for, and what instrument they were looking for. So far, I have been charged for SEVERAL “leads” that I would have never even applied for because either I don’t play that kind of music, or don’t play that specific instrument. I’ve seen my hires drop off significantly since Thumbtack made the “change” to the new system. If “reviews” from the Pros don’t make an impact here really soon, then hopefully pausing or outright disabling our services might send a clearer message. Losing money to have fake leads contact me is getting old REAL quick.
