Konsus is a newer company I've been seeing around that has many remote positions available. These positions are also across many different categories, including data entry, graphic design, writing, research, and more. Konsus' jobs are also open worldwide.
What Sort of Business Is Konsus?
The first thing I do when looking into any work at home position is check out the business end of the company first. I like to know how they make the money they use to pay workers, what sort of services they offer to potential clients.
So as far as Konsus is concerned, they appear to be a “middleman” company, maybe slightly similar to Upwork. Except, I don't believe you have to bid on projects here.
The company has clients who need multiple workers for various projects. Konsus provides these workers. This is supposed to save their clients time and money on tasks they don't want to spend time doing, and also taking time to source workers to complete the tasks. Konsus takes care of it all.
What Work at Home Jobs Does Konsus Offer?
There are many! Here's some of what I'm seeing open now:
- Data entry
- Content writing
- Graphic design
- Lead generation
- Web development
- Powerpoint design
- Software engineering
The data entry job listing specifically caught my eye. I get a lot of reader requests for info on work at home data entry jobs, and unfortunately there just aren't that many out there.
How Much Does Konsus Pay?
They do not list the rate of pay, and I was unable to find the info online. I'm sure it probably varies depending on what you're doing. If I can find details later, I'll try to get this updated.
How Often Does Konsus Pay?
The company pays workers once a month. Also, they have you covered for those situations where the client doesn't want to pay. It won't be your problem because Konsus pays you, not the client.
How Much Work Will Konsus Have Available?
This is one of the sticking points for most freelancers. You can find good gigs, but who knows if they will have steady work? Konsus does say they will have a steady stream of projects.
What Is The Schedule at Konsus?
It is supposed to be very flexible in nature, giving you the freedom to choose when, where, and how much you work. They also state you can decline any projects you don't want to take part in.
How Hard Is It To Get Accepted at Konsus?
Konsus claims acceptance is difficult, and that only two percent of applicants make it in.
What Does The Application Process Involve?
This could vary from position to position, but I've seen that they do interviews. Also, you'll have to complete an assessment determining you're qualified to do the job you're applying for.
What Do Other Freelancers Say About Konsus?
I'm not able to find much online yet, unfortunately, apart from these two interview reviews on Glassdoor. One of these lists a negative interview experience and the other was neutral. That's not enough for me to have a good idea on how things are here, so if you have your own feedback to provide, feel free!
