This is a real job.
You get paid for what you work. However, you don't get paid that much.
Once, you are approved as a crafter, you receive more materials.
Many approved workers struggle at this time because the products take too much time, even for just 10!
Some crafters can take 2 to 3 days to make 10, but some workers take up to a week.
It's very difficult. NEC is a real company to sell what you make, so they always need good products and workers.
Of course, you can make it! But you need to make all of them perfect otherwise, your products will be rejected and you won't get paid.
This company, NEC, is very legitimate, and has great customer service. If you need help or have questions, you can call New England Crafters or go to their forum. They have a great forum for the crafters who need help to get approved.
However, there are many complaints for this company.
Because, many people realize that they won't get paid as much as they want (If it takes 2 days to make 10 $1 projects, the pay is $5 a day), or they can't pass their inspections for a long time, etc.
It could be many reasons.
They never say to quit because you can't pass. Some crafters require doing the inspections over 7 or 8 times before they are approved and start to work. You also have to wait until your inspection comes back. It takes about 2 to 3 weeks. If your inspection was approved, you'll see your name on their "Newly Approved Assemblers" list.
For me, this job is not for everyone who is looking for a work at home opportunity.Then, who is good for this company?
Just go to their website and check it out.
You realize that the workers are either retired people, moms who need to stay at home for babies, college students, etc.
They are all busy doing something else.
This job is good for those people, I think. The workers are all happy that they can have a work at home opportunity including myself.
If you think you have a lot of time and can make many as a full time worker, just take a minute and think it over.
You really can't work with this company full time.
The company is always busy, so sometimes, the shippment for the projects don`t come for over a month.
Some people call this company up and try to hurry them, but they are going as fast as they can.
So, you really can't decide how much you can make in a month, it's really up to when you receive the shipment.
I would say this is a part time job.
Don't make a decision yet!
Once you are approved, and make 10 pieces, you realize that this is way too much.
I think you may have read a couple of websites about those difficulties.
Yes, during the first 10 pieces, and the next one, at first, you might think this is a slave job. (Because you get paid $1 for a piece, and it might take even 3 hours to make one! )
But, as you make their products, it will become easier and faster, so if you just started, hang on for couple months!
I always think these difficulties are nothing when you consider using gas to go to a job.
You have no boss and you don`t have to travel.
It's good for people who need a little extra money.
Some of the crafters have main full time jobs and work as crafters part time.
You can be at home at night and make products while listening to your favorite music or something.
You can also post and ask a question to real workers on their forum. They are all nice and love to help each other!
You just need to be patient with them. Very patient!
