Vishkanya, hi there.
As I'm sure you'll appreciate, we have to be careful before allocating work to new writers as we don't know how good a job they will do. Just because someone has a degree doesn't mean they are a good writer. However, we've improved our systems to help new writers get more work. We upgrade the writer if they submit a couple of examples of their writing to us and these are a good standard. We also have a new scheme which allows new writers to complete a few short writing tasks, of which there are many - paid of course. These are used for commercial enterprises, rather than as model answers for students - they give the writer the chance to show how good they are and for us to 'test drive' their skills before they are assigned to help a student.
exwriter, MAK, WB, as usual your comments are off topic and irrelevant. Nobody really cares about your personal jibes, as amusing as they are :-) I've dealt with your comments about our contract elsewhere in the forum and as I've explained, we're a UK company subject to UK law - if the contract allowed us to do what you say, it would not stand up in court (as I've explained, in detail) and I suspect we'd have no writers on our books. We have 3,700+ writers and we have a good working relationship with every single one. We demand a great performance from our writers and in exchange, we give them an excellent rate of pay. If they try and screw us over by plagiarising work, failing to submit without talking to us, or submitting poor quality work then yes, we'll do what we are allowed to do, within the law, to recover the damage to our business. This is our right - and the right of any other business in this country. But the large majority of our writers are unaffected by this because they deliver on time, they write well and they write originally. We value these people and we support them - they are the lifeblood of our business and we're hardly going to be in a rush to act in a way that jeopardises that. I'm sorry if you were on our books but that you were not one of those writers who act honestly, submit great work and enjoy the benefits - like many things in life, you have to face the consequences of your actions :-)
