Don’t be fooled by scams, I do not take this word lightly. I do actual reviews so I dig in a bit more than most would. I want you to have the truth about what to stay away from and what you can trust. I do this to protect you as well as businesses that offer legitimate opportunity. This review will show you exactly why I do my reviews the way I do.

What is Myflexjob?
Myflexjob is …… usually I would say what platform it is here or something along those lines. This time is different. DO NOT CONFUSE MYFLEXJOB WITH FLEXJOBS.
Have you ever seen the Eddie Murphy movie The Distinguished gentleman? He used a trusted name to gain popularity and get voted into Congress. This is pretty much the same thing, Myflexjob is Not Flexjobs.
Myflexjobs offers a very convincing work from home program which you simply do Data entry at home. Although this site sounds like a great opportunity for stay at home situations. It never states that it is a survey site, it pushes how you would make an excellent income with what sounds like actual work. What it does not say is that the Data you would need to enter is your own!
Another thing they do here is try to require you get a antivirus, which is lesser quality than what I have, they say it is needed to protect their clients. Other people got hit with needing a backup program, so they can track your work. They offer you a credit of $25 after you sign up “to help pay for the software” What they don’t tell you is their minimal payout is $50. The payout on the surveys are very low and your mailbox fills fast trying to simply get your money back.
I have been doing this for a while and I know there are some quirks with many of these sites, there is a high volume so they may lag some. One of the things I found odd is every time I tried to log in I had to request a temporary password. I didn’t think much of it at first, I reset my password and it said it was saved. Every time the same thing, I spoke to a friend who writes code for websites and she told me the only way that could happen is if it always pointed back to the site owner. Another Red flag for everyone to know.
Could it Work For You?
Honestly, there are enough red flags with this to stop a train. However, I will go through the Pros and Cons.
- No or small initial startup cost ( The initial pay out is on the sign up not the purchase of anything.)
- Pick the survey or task you want
- No prior experience needed
- Work at your own pace
- Work at home
- Very low payout per task
- Serval site anomalies
- survey options are always the same
- many tasks take extremely long to complete
- credit does not always get added
- No training or tools available
I can not in anyway recommend this site.
What is Flexjob
Flexjobs is an actual Job site for freelance work, like Upwork. They specialize in connecting people with jobs they can do from home or mostly from home.
website: www.flexjobs.com (actual site)
Flexjobs has been out since 2007 and has a excellent BBB rating. Unfortunately, I have not done a full review at this time. I will look into it more and follow up if it is warranted or fits the criteria for this site.
My FINAL Opinion
It is sad how a small play on a name can have such a drastic impact. I have seen several of bad reviews but very few that separated the company they were trying to leech off of. Please when reviewing pay attention to the little details also. Put in variations of the name to see what else may pop up. In case you haven’t noticed, I did not tag the website. I did this so it would not be mistaken as an endorsement from search engines.
I can not endorse Flexjobs at this point, however if you are looking for actual freelance work you should put in your search that way. Do research on Flexjob and Upwork, beware, some of these may have a cost associated with them.
