All those popular names like the DailyMail and Metro mentioned on the purplecv.co.uk website give it their own kind of flair. Being featured on such websites certainly makes a visitor more confident about ordering from a service. But, when it comes to ads that are usually paid and a service that has as low reputation as this one, you should definitely think twice before rushing into an order.
At the beginning, it all sounded and looked perfect. You get great, high-rated CV at an affordable rate. But, after we read about the company outside of the attractive website, we got an entirely different impression. Keep reading to see what we discovered in our evaluation.
The Range of Writing Services
Moreover, the service list here isn’t at all attractive when we compare it to other companies. There aren’t many services that people need when they apply for work, such as thank you or follow up letters. There isn’t even a resume service!
In terms of career and experience levels you have four options:
- Early career CV (0- 3 years of experience)
- The next step CV (3-10 years of experience)
- Advanced career CV (10+ years of experience)
- Specialist CV (for niche professions)
There are also many limitations here. They don’t have a ‘change profession’ offer or federal and military CV offer. In other words, purplecv.co.uk can only be used by a limited amount of people.
PurpleCV.co.uk: Pricing and Discount Policy
These prices come with no discounts, so don’t expect anything lower. Discounts aren’t common for resume companies since they aren’t used on regular basis (if the service has done a good job), so we aren’t surprised. We are, however, surprised by the lack of services and deadline options.
PurpleCV has two fixed deadline options – 2 days for the first three service types, and 5 days for specialist CV and package. Thankfully, the differences between the individual CV service and the packages is small, which makes it more convenient for most to go for the package option.
Quality of PurpleCV
The results were really not good. The resume came in 2 days, which means that their deadlines are safe. However, most of the typos remained, plus there were some new ones. The resume looked like a template and wasn’t edited or proofread at all. The worst part about it was, it wasn’t even formatted properly after our data was added to the template. Basically, it was money poorly spent.
Apparently, it doesn’t. Someone added the guarantee details there to make the company sound more attractive. Since we asked them to do something because of the poor CV quality, we know this for sure. They didn’t provide anything that would serve as a guarantee – not a refund, not a rewrite.
Apparently, the satisfaction guarantee is determined by the company only, not the actual satisfaction of the customers. At this point, we aren’t even sure if you’ll get a refund if they send your package late.
