This is so RIGHT! I don't promote because I had tons of people choosing me and never responding. With the old system, I closed around 80% of the jobs I quoted on. It also made people actually fill out the details for the jobs. Now I get super vague requests, no one responds, I get charged for a nearly zero job cenversion rate. It makes me much more likely to decline a job than respond. Now travel preferences don't carry over, so if I want to manually screen jobs, I have to hit pass on hundreds of jobs in other freaking states to clear the list. Also, since people can now choose us, TT is super persistent appartently. I'll hit decline and the job will pop up again. Then I'll get 2 or 3 notifications asking me to follow up with them, even after declining it multiple times. Apparently, TT only wants you to promote, and they can't take no for an answer. Thank God I got my SEO on my website up to speed. When I first started TT was 90% of my business. Now it is practically useless. I'm considering dropping it altogether. Their new system sucks.
