FlexJobs.com Review: Legit or Work from Home Scam?

Many of you may have stumbled across a site called FlexJobs. Is this really a legitimate site or another scam? Let's find out…

Ever wondered if FlexJobs.com is legit or a work from home scam? Bottom line - FlexJobs is the one place you can trust to find flexible jobs online.For most of us who are looking to be financially independent and to be able to decide our own working hours, the first step we would need to take is to find out how and where we can get started on our work at home journey.

The truth is this, no newspaper or billboard will advise work at home opportunities on their pages and this is because most work at home opportunities can only be found online. This is where Flexjobs.com comes into the picture.

Before I joined the site, I had already seen lots of reviews on how amazing and incredible their services were but I could not trust some of these reviews and so I decided to register with them so I could get first-hand what the site was all about and if it was worth investing in.

What is FlexJobs.com?

FlexJobs.com  is one of the leading job search sites for finding flexible and part-time telecommuting jobs from home. Basically, they filter out all the scams so you don’t have to – and they do deliver.

What Type of Jobs Does Flexjobs Provide?

Like I pointed out earlier, some of the job offers you can find are telecommuting jobs, part time jobs, freelancing jobs and flexible jobs. All these jobs have been screened for legitimacy, to save you the time and stress.

Are there any Fees at FlexJobs?

This is the trickiest part and probably the main reason why most people are afraid to sign up with Flexjobs.com. Flexjobs does charge a monthly subscription fee. The reason of charging a membership fee is because it is an online recruiting service, therefore it does not collect advertising fee from employers.

It will also help employers post their legitimate work at home opportunities since they are not being charged for it. I can assure you that in the end, the token you pay as membership fee on Flexjobs.com will be well worth it.

Here are your options…

  • $9.95 for 30 Days
  • $29.95 for a 3-month membership
  • $49.95 for a One-Year membership

Once you are in, you must input information about your skills and experience. You can upload your resume or create one using their tools. Once you profile goes public, you are ready to start searching for jobs. If you would like to get job alerts by email, that is available as well.

Whether the fee is worth it or not, would depend totally up to how much you plan to use the site. I think FlexJobs.com is a great site for freelancers who are just beginning or stay at home parents seriously looking for a flexible home based job.

    I am interested in doing audio transcription starting on the 15th March and i reside in South Africa. Are Flex jobs opportunities open worldwide?

    I disagree with you. I found two jobs form Flexjobs and you are misleading people. Their name and whole company is surrounded by them offering Telecommute jobs. You are putting them down os people can come to your website for free. Flexjobs offer the highest quality of jobs with major company players. This is why they require a fee; it is no different from a recruiting company that requires a fee. So if you want a career with a higher income and not a low income starting you out with just $9.00 per hour working from home please consider widening your net,people. The fee is well worth it. If you do choose Flexjobs, please pay a yearly fee. It is always wise to pay a yearly fee so you can give yourself time to find a career and not just a job. Also, I got scammed off Careerbuilder website. Many websites like Careerbuilder, Indeed, and Monster are pitiful because they do not protect the people;Flexjobs do. I am dsappointed in you,DHBW, with your lack of research about Flexjobs.

      Hi, Thanks for writing in. The whole point of this article was to say that FlexJobs was a legitimate company that helps people find legitimate jobs. I totally understand why they require a fee. My review was from my personal experience as well as the feedback from other individuals. It is totally up to the person to determine if the fee is worth it or not.

      However, I do want to inform people about the fee so they can know upfront. I always encourage people to do their own research. I have witnessed first hand the scams that are on Indeed, Careerbuilder, Craigslist, and so forth.

      I really appreciate your feedback and do hope others will try out FlexJobs, so they can have their own perspective of the site. Enjoy your night! 🙂

      LOL. Yes if you sign up for the 3 months,they will not issue refund. I actually only signed up for the one full month. So definitely keep me posted on your experience wit FlexJobs 🙂

    Thank you for your response. I signed up the other day, but will cancel. You are so right about the things you said. Also, it seems like it’s too many jobs to sort through. How long did you keep the service before canceling? I don’t want to keep it open too long. Thanks again

    I was a paying customer of this site for three months, most of the work at home jobs were for people who were Accountants, Registered Nurses, Social Workers, are customer service reps who were bi lingual. Most of the remote jobs for stay at home mom or someone who didn’t have a college degree are leads you can find for free on indeed.com.

    Thank you so much for this review. Im trying to transition to a stay at home mom (1 year old) and its really hard for me to look non phone “permanent work” I will sign up to see what is has to offer. As far as the money back guarantee…How long from signing up do I have to cancel to receive a full refund? and did you see a lot of non phone jobs? Thanks again!

    1. Hi Tiey! Once you sign up for the one month, you should be able to cancel within those 30 days for a full refund. Let me know if you have any problems! 🙂
