“Stay Away - Completely terrible - honestly save your money”

Written on: 06/08/2019 by SimplyHonestly (1 review written)

Please do not use these people if you value your career development. They are very responsive, and friendly but utterly incompetent. And I have learnt that the initial response you receive are all from an automated programme as well. After the first intial CV, which I was nervous about as the person did not even seem to understand the nuances of the English language, I then cimplained and asked for a second. Got a very savvy sounding gent who had English as a first langgaue but did a… Read Full Review

“I wish I had researched this company more thoroughly ”

Written on: 18/12/2017

If I could have left zero stars I would have. I paid for the executive level service and what I received was absolutely unusable. Despite confirming it would be written in British English beforehand, it was written using American spellings. I provided a significant amount of supporting information from which to draw and yet what was sent over as a "first draft" contained sentences and comments which appeared to be from someone else's CV as it was not even truthful! I refuse to spend any further… Read Full Review

“CV farmed out to overseas writers with no UK English...”

Written on: 20/10/2017 by 1971Connolly (1 review written)

Awful service. I paid for the top tier package after receiving a very good free overview of my initial CV. The 1st draft I received back was appalling. UK English was not used and there were many grammatical errors and incorrectly spelled words. Also, their writing style was completely at odds with common practice in that they went into very long and wordy descriptions of each job I had using several nauseating corporate gobbledygook words. When I asked them to reduce text length to key… Read Full Review

“Terrible quality, terrible service”

Written on: 23/07/2017 by Michael-J-H (1 review written)

I engaged CVnow after their free CV review service. They gave good, fair feedback on the quality of my C.V., and I could see the benefit of getting my C.V. professionally re-written. I signed up for the top tier package, which promised 48 hour delivery, access to the top 5% of C.V. writers and a LinkedIn re-write. As soon as the money was taken, it went downhill from there. They gloriously missed the 48 hour deadline, and only after emailing back and forth for days did they agree to refund a… Read Full Review

“Disgusting service providing one star is too generous”

Written on: 29/05/2017 by Davionk391 (1 review written)

I purchased the package of £129 to rewrite my CV and cover letter. I received a bland generic cover letter which gave no details of my achievements what so ever. The CV contained spelling and grammatical errors. I received my first draft on the 15th May, provided detailed feedback on the 17th regarding amends. The CV writer assured me they would start working immediately from the feedback provided. He has had the cheek to provide the original CV with no amends on the 26th May and explains that… Read Full Review

“Really bad”

Written on: 28/05/2017 by Cvnow (1 review written)

Having real trouble with this company. Paid £150 and the CV contained grammar and spelling errors. Also written in some very old fashioned type of English not used today. They won't refund me. Buyer beware. Not a good experience… Read Full Review

“Even one star is too much”

Written on: 13/04/2017 by donka12 (1 review written)

Even one star is too much for this company. - lack of ability to read someone CV and write the summary - my career was in Oil&Gas versur they wrote the summary about salesmedical products - they delivered the results at the last possible day - I started working with them in last week February, till today I have not received the final version - although you got the initial feedback - you need to be focus on deliveries - delivered CV is without facts and figures I strongly recommend NOT to use… Read Full Review

“THEY ARE A SHAM AND UNPROFESSIONAL!!!”

Written on: 30/03/2017 by James198607 (1 review written)

I purchased a package last week for my CV to be remodelled and updated and 2 cover letters to be wrote. I gave my writer extensive material concerning myself. However upon receiving the first draft, to state I am not pleased was an understatement. The CV was comprehensively full of errors, as stated: · Glaringly poor grammar across the whole first draft · Key months missed from past employment · Key information missed (grades from education, skills, jobs etc) · The CV expanded to 4 pages… Read Full Review

“Do Not Use CV NOW - They Deserve Minus Stars!!!”

Written on: 28/03/2017 by Fitzgeraldht352 (1 review written)

CV Now make claims they can not or will not back up with hard evidence. Having paid for an Executive CV, Cover Letter, Post Interview Thank You Letter and enhanced LinkedIn Profile I received error strewn, grammatically incorrect attempts at documents which contained blatant lies about my career history. The rest was nothing but poorly judged, on their part, cut and paste sections of my own efforts. On asking for a refund they offered 50% or for another of their top 10% of their network… Read Full Review

“US based, but pretending to be UK, avoid!”

Written on: 27/03/2017 by VivianaHull174 (1 review written)

I took advantage of the free review which was very impressive, I have to say. It confirmed my worst fears about my CV. I checked them out, .co.uk URL, UK address, then I signed up. BIG mistake. They are in fact a New York based outfit. Your writer will 'reach out to you' around midnight. The first draft will have typos - 'Manger' instead of 'Manager' - and be littered with American spelling and grammar - not to mention US job titles - 'Marketing Associate'. I complained - "we'll escalate it… Read Full Review

“Appalling and not based in the UK”

Written on: 10/03/2017 by rjIngram1975 (1 review written)

DO NOT USE!! IF YOU HAVE ORDERED ONE LODGE A DISPUTE WITH YOUR BANK NOW TO GET THE MONEY BACK. Their writers they claim to have don't exist as they cant string 2 sentences together. I think they are using a thesaurus from Microsoft Word as the words they replace in their sentences diminish the meaning. They cant spell - if you get your CV back proofread and see how many spelling errors you can spot! Very badly put together CV. DO NOT pay extra £25 to get the CV quicker you wont get it on time… Read Full Review

Shocking and embarrassingly poor quality. Slow to deliver and very selective in terms of answering questions like who they are, where they are based etc. Save your money and believe in your own abilities to write your own profile. … Read Full Review

“Definitely not tailored to your CV”

Written on: 17/02/2017 by user_gregus (1 review written)

This is a copy / paste of feedback I gave to the person I dealt with at CVNow on Feb 17, 2017 your feedback shows CVNow is not to be trusted for these reasons : 1) The feedback for my CV was 95% the same as my wife's. This is strange, as our careers, industries and work levels have nothing in common. Then checking reviews of your service I find the same template used for total strangers. Hmmmm. 2) When you provided specific feedback it was far off the mark : - You state I overuse… Read Full Review

“Poor service, poor product, save your money”

Written on: 17/01/2017 by Garza274 (1 review written)

I recently paid £129 for CVNow to work on my CV and cover letter in the hope that it would really highlight my achievements and give these documents in impact. I requested that my CV would really emphasise my achievements. What I received was a CV which did not deliver on that and highlighted things I have never done and was negatively worded. After 60 days+ no interviews using the CV they created. CVNow rewrote the CV, but not the cover letter. They simply sent the original cover letter… Read Full Review
