Near the end of May '18, I made a resume with MPR because I was plotting a career change. I had no clue about the monthly subscription fee and wish I'd have noticed it sooner, but in all fairness, they only got me for about $50. The reason I'm pissed is there's no reason something like this should even carry a subscription fee (let alone such a hefty one!). Everything that this website offers is offered somewhere else for free, and while I was more than willing to pay the $3 or $4 for the sheer convenience, I had no idea I'd be shelling out $50 more!
It's my fault for the loss and most of my anger is directed at myself. I'm usually cautious enough to avoid things like this after all. MPR's business practices are still underhanded and shady though, and I hope to stoke the flames further by leaving this review.
You guys honestly must be out of your *** minds to charge what you do. I hope the money is good, and I'm sure it is, because you guys will eventually collapse under the weight of mounting negative press.
Your product is not worth the price tag. Let's compare some other subscription services to yours, shall we? They're different services of course, but I think this will really drive home what I'm trying to say.
a) Netflix: anywhere from $8/mo to $14/mo. You get access to thousands of movies and television shows that can be accessed from virtually anywhere and by multiple people depending on your plan.
b) Hulu: $8/mo. Again, you get access to thousands of movies and television shows.
c) Amazon Prime: $13/mo for free two-day shipping on a diverse and ever-growing selection of goods. You also get access to movies and television shows.
d) Playstation Plus: $50/yr (not even $5/mo) and you get online multiplayer, free games, discounts, access to betas, and more.
e) Crunchyroll: $7/mo for unlimited to access to over 800 anime which can be accessed from virtually anywhere.
And finally, drumroll...
MY PERFECT RESUME!
f) My Perfect Resume: How fitting it is that F should be the letter for your service! F, which is what I'd award your service if I were grading it. $25/mo for shitty, cliche buzzword driven career seeking advice (most of which is free elsewhere) and access to what is basically a glorified word processor with templates available that are actually far worse than many available for free. A transparent cash grab that I unknowingly walked right into.
I'm pissed you guys got $50 from me, but I'm elated to know that you won't get a single penny more since I've cancelled my subscription. And if this feedback isn't helpful enough, here's my advice to you schmucks: lower your *** prices! I can see no reason other than greed belying the outrageous cost of membership for your "service," a service that I've demonstrated as being unneeded and overpriced, and one that takes advantage of consumer desire for quick fixes and search engine metadata mechanics.
