Their ranking system is capricious, inaccurate, and unfair. Don't waste your money if you are a professional established television editor. Back when it was realitystaff.com, this was the ultimate job site. I got job after job. Once greedy Staffmeup took over and they started their completely arbitrary "ranking system" I've never received a quality job offer on this site.
For instance, as proof of their insane and ineffective "ranking system" -- I was lead editor on Ellen, one of the leads on American Idol, and the best music editor in MTV history according to MTV. I also cut mult-cam plays and TV shows for Tyler Perry. I also have well over 1000 credits and 20 years experience.
These are all top rated credits, so when a job comes up that says: "Looking for experienced editor with comedy experience, live multi-cam experience, and music experience" and I apply, I get a message that I rank low on the list of applications. I'd LOVE to see how these junior editors have better credits than mine. But, that would be impossible because they DON'T. Staffmeup is fake, arbitrary, and amateur. Maybe they do this to make more money from junior wanna-be's and they don't give a damn about providing the best applicants -- only making MONEY. It's not only sad, it's fraud.
Why can't seasoned editors get hired on Staffmeup? As a #1 rated editor who consistently delivers the most praised work by employers and gets the highest network ratings, and is faster than every other editor I work with (verified) -- I don't understand why I get ZERO calls and junior editors are hired instead of me who cost the same, do inferior work (verified) and complain all of the time. I am a leader and a maverick -- but for whatever reason, Staffmeup's algorithm's are not getting my name in front of employers and lesser editors get hired while I do not. If you think I am bragging or difficult to work with that is entirely untrue. In fact, I am the easiest and most hard working editor I've encountered with the exception of some of the 1st class editors at Chainsaw Post. Why can't seasoned editors get hired on Staffmeup?
