Crossover.com is changing the way people look at traditional employment, saying that they are successfully making “a global effort to change the workplace.”
How Does It Work?
According to their website, the main goal of Crossover is connect companies to the best, most high skilled employees around the world, as well as helping these companies manage, pay, and increase the productivity of those same employees.
They do this in a variety of ways. Crossover believes that the future of the workplace isn’t 30 year careers in a single company, but rather a system of “calculated strategic tours” where people will work in a particular job or role where they can maximize a specific skill set, and then move on to the next role with a new skill set when the time comes.
Crossover.com gives their employees a chance to do that. First, they test all prospective employees during a one to three week period to ensure that they get the most talented employees on their staff. Then they partner with companies all over the globe that need access to highly qualified employees.
Employees will then be placed with one of these partner companies for a tour of between one and three years, depending on how long their talents are needed. When that time is up, they will be placed with a new partner company.
This is not freelance employment, though, Crossover.com is very clear about that. They believe that the world’s most talented employees are not interested in constantly searching for work, which is why they come to Crossover.
Because this website is looking for employees to actually bring onto their staff, it costs no money to go onto their website and look at the positions they are currently trying to fill and to request to be considered for the testing process yourself.
However, even though this is not a freelance employment company, there are some things prospective employees should know. Though this company offers full time employment with competitive salaries, they offer no benefits, saying that they prefer to pay their employees everything up front and let them decide what their benefits should be, including health care and retirement plans.
In addition, all employees are considered independent workers, which means that they are entirely responsible for paying all income taxes “dependent upon the tax regulations and policies of your own tax jurisdiction.”
Since this company does not take any fees in exchange for the use of their website or consideration of hiring their employees, they have no use for a Refund Policy.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact Customer Service with any questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by email at [email protected] or by submitting them directly to their website through their Contact link at the bottom of their webpage.
Crossover.com mentions on its very own website that there are many detractors of their employment model all over the internet. Some people can’t believe they truly pay the wages they claim to, others complain about their testing method, others worry that the international status of this company makes their work questionably legal.
The website addresses and refutes all these claims, but the bottom line is that what this company offers is something very specific and may not be an employment opportunity that is truly meant for everyone. Prospective employees who need more information should contact the company directly.
Competitors and Alternatives?
Finding a competitor or alternative to this company is difficult because Crossover.com works in such a niche area – independent employees working long term at an outsourcing company of sorts.
People who are looking for employment opportunities, however, have many different websites they can look, as well as headhunter or employee recruitment services depending on your industry and where you live.
