    As a seller on flippa, i often make a transaction in backstage, via skype or GTalk, but after all done, he, the buyer from Spain (i saw in flippa profile) offers me a job, $300 - $500/month, he sent me non-disclosure agreement and work contract, it said i must work 19 hours a day.

    Many task i have made and will paid in every end of the month once task completed, accurate. I just confuse, what the f*ck business, he said confidential but legal business (new technology), called ENATEC.

    Stated on work contract, i must complete design, wordpress, seo, etc.

    Please share your thought, or if member here have experience about the offers like this, is that legit?

    Sorry my bad english..
    Thank's..

    It's flattering to be offered a full time job, and if you need one, it may be tempting.

    Let's go over the numbers first though:
    19 hours per day, assuming 22 working days per month (which is average, assuming you work 5 days per week and have weekends off) = 418 hours per month.

    $500 divided by 418 = $1.19 per hour

    wow, huh?
    and you get to sleep 5 whole hours per night!

    I am sure the offer is legit, but you'd be nuts to take it, skilled virtual workers can make much more than that

    $300-$500 for 19 hours a day...sounds a bit heavy...If its a confidential business I would not expect him to be reaching out to strangers on Flippa..Anyway if the guy knows the standard of your work from Flippa he should be prepared to pay you a month or two in advance ....I thought enatec was a cancer drug but i might be wrong

    19 hours a day for $300/$500 a month is a insult for you.

    you cant work 19 hours every day ..... it will kill you.
    if you want i am sure you find better offers here. the most pay for VA which have not much clue 200 for a 8 hours job so you would be heavy underpaid

    are you sure it said 19 hours a day?? You do realize a day is limited to 24 hours right?

    Using agente's math, if you're working 8 hours a day, 22 days of the month and earning $500 at the end of the month that is $2.84/hour.

    Not worth it imo. Very underpaid work considering everything he wants you to do.

    It really depends where OP lives and his conditions.

    @ OP. If you live in a third world country, not trying to offend you, and you need the money, I guess it's decent money.

    As Th3T3chGuy said,it really depends where the OP lives.As I know,in third world countries like India,Pakistan,Romania etc. 300-500 a month is the avarage salary for most people.And you need sweat and work a lot to get this money.

    No way in hell should you take up on that offer, just for the principle's sake. 19 hours a day isn't what you want, no matter what the price is.

    I'm in a 3rd world country and though I don't need money, even if I did, I'd never ever take up on 19 hours a day. There are much better offers, much better work elsewhere.

    It's no longer 19 hours a day. Read the thread.
