I've played around with the site here and there for years never really going anywhere with it. However I got some real professional experience submitted 2 serious proposals and I'm making $20-$25 as my initial pay with an increase after 90 days written into my proposal. I left the office because both clients are long term. The jobs are there, but if you just want a cust service role it's not going to work out well unless you're a freak of nature.

Well Upwork is all online, so I'd say if you enjoy working from home (your computer) like I do, it's fantastic. THe website is set up fairly nicely.

The pace of this work varies. Some projects can be long, last months to years, and some can be done within a week. It all depends on both the contractor and client's flexibility and standards.

Slow. You can go for weeks, months....even years without getting a decent project to work on. It's really frustrating.
