Not resolved

Thumbtack use to be cool.

I got hired 40 times last year as a bartender. Made some good money.

This year they got greedy and changed the bidding pool from 5 people to 15. I’ve only gotten 2 jobs this year. When you view the insights, 99% show nobody is getting hired. I’m willing to bet 40% of the ads are fake.

I’m not bidding on any jobs until they change back to the old format. Also that instant match feature is garbage.

$15 loss each time you get a message with no guarantee of a hire. I lost $125 in bids this month having that feature on.

I got to agree. I use to get work and it didn't really hurt when I didn't.

Ever sense there changes I'm loosing money. The nature of my Business people just want quotes and it's understandable. Some of the calls I get sound so phony. It's going to take me three jobs to get back my loses.

I'm done bidding till they fix this issue but something tells me they wont. They will only keep coming up with more greedy ideas that sound good.


You are lucky is was only $125. I was billed over $600 in a week and a half


Thumbtack use to be a good business, Now with INSTANT MATCH,they have gone from a legitimate tool to help professionals find clients to company that is a greedy and a SCAM
