    "I've been hiring writers from Upwork for a while now. Though they may have mixed reviews online about the services, I think it's just about being clear about your job posting. I make it a point to be thorough in choosing the right freelancer."

    "I think this hit will work well for me. The app provides a way I can find remote, freelance work. It does not appear to be limited to a particular field of work, so I'm happy there are choices for different types of remote jobs."

    "I am a working mom (a single mom), and in looking for a job, I always make sure that I can work from home so I wouldn't need to leave my daughter with her nanny alone. Upwork works well for me. I am a paid marketing expert. I make $30 an hr and I think that's more than enough to support my only daughter. If you wanna work while studying, Upwork is also a great avenue for you to jump-start your career. They offer careers in the field of web development, designs, writing, marketing, and financial field. "

    "It's a site that connects freelancer to those who need work done. The pay is minimum and there are no benefits. But it allows you to work from home so that's good."

    "No, no, no, I worked there at upwork for 9 damn years and on 1 occasion, I had a dispute w, white British employer. Upwork sided with the white Western person for no reason at all even though I had all the proofs that white British employer was unjust but upwork management didn[t even listen me. "

    "Upwork is one of the larger freelancing platforms online, which is good, because it gives people a lot of opportunities to find work, though it does suffer from issues endemic to this kind of work arrangement. The fees they collect are a little steep and can detract from your bottom line. Also, you'll face a lot of competition from those in areas with lower costs of living. I suppose its a decent choice by virtue of its size and scale - there's really no way it can deal with some issues that are inherent in this type of business arrangement."

    "Upwork is a freelance work platform where freelancers and clients can connect for jobs of various sizes and levels of complexity. I used it when I needed some freelancers to paint my living room. The app allows me to communicate and make arrangements while on the go. "

    "Surprisingly, I found out that this company/website does not only offer writing services but also offers marketing and accounting solutions. Anyway, their writing professional fee ranges from 25-75 USD. And the good thing about this site is that the information about the writer is readily available for your perusal upon looking at the list. Most of them are copywriters and marketers so no need to worry about sounding very professional."

    "I have been using this before as a freelance writer and now that I'm the one looking for those people, I can see how good this platform is both to find contractors as well as for the jobseekers themselves"

    "I am an English graduate but until now I don't have enough confidence in my writing skills. Good thing Upwork only provides projects that match my capacity. I'm doing good so far. and little by little, my skill is improving. I suggest you visit the website and not through the app because it malfunctions most of the time. "

    "job search sites like upwork are overrated, i think. I have been a member of this site for a year now and i really haven't found a job yet. i think the site is really competitive and you really REALLY have to sell yourself to be employed. I know people who have found good jobs here so i guess it's okay but it's not for me."

    "Upwork is a great way to network with other people to either offer your services for profit or to purchase the services of others for whatever particular need you might have. The platform is straightforward and easy to use. I needed a logo design once and quickly found someone with professional skill that fit the bill and collaborated with to complete and provide what I wanted. So if you want to make some money or need something done you don't either have the skill or time to do yourself, then certainly check out Upwork."

    "This is a fantastic app to complement their service - as a freelancer it is *so* handy to have all the information I need on jobs, clients, etc., and the ability to keep in touch and on top of projects right on my phone. Top notch, well worth the install!"

    "Upwork is not a good app to make easy money. It is an app that corresponds to a legitimate work platform connecting businesses and individuals. Real work is necessary to make money on there. If you are looking to make easy money, there are better, more appropriate apps to try to find it."

    "I was looking for ways to make money at my home during my spare time, and this website directed me to Upwork, and app available on the android platform. I installed the app, and it was exactly what I was looking for. Upwork allowed me to find new opportunities and expand current ones, and it was easy to use and straightforward while remaining versatile and flexible. I couldn't be more happy with Upwork and the recommendation to use it."

    "I have been trying to get more and more freelance work to do as a side-income. I found Upwork while searching for freelance apps, and I gave it a shot. From what efforts I put it, it wasn't that great. It takes way too long to find work, if you do, and it isn't a easy interface to deal with."

    "This is really great. I get to do side jobs and make a little extra money at home. I wouldn't use this as a primary resource of income, but if you're looking for something on the side this is excellent. Go get on and get paid!"
