Had a 6 month $500 per month ($3000) and received only 2 calls (1 was wrong number)
RUN AWAY FAST! The Managers will lie over and over just to keep billing even with zero results! They will just keep consoling you as they drain your bank account.

Here's reviews from an employees that sum up the whole nightmare:

Avoid it if possible
Freelance Writer (Current Employee) Remote August 2,2018
I want to like Vivial. I really do. But every time I try, I'm reminded why it's just another content mill. Subpar pay, tight deadlines, idiotic edit requests that would be easier and faster for the editor to fix themselves, the list goes on.

Editors used to be great, but the newer ones are rude, issue requests that make no sense, or violate the style guide entirely. There is no consistency and edits often take weeks to go through. If an article hasn't been cleared by an editor, you don't get paid for it. At one point, I had articles languishing in the editorial queue for more than four months.

The content assignments are often so vague or poorly worded that you can't make sense of them. When they are clear, the editors typically misinterpret or ignore the instructions in the idea and tell you to rewrite the article entirely.

If you expect to be rewarded for your work, you'll be sorely disappointed. There are no pay increases. There's no bonus structure. What you agree to in your contract seems to be it.

Terrible place to work
PREMISE SALES REPRESENTATIVE, VIVIAL (Former Employee) United States May 20,2018
Work culture is below standards. Goals are to high and they keep u on write up to motivate you. High stress with lil reward. RUN FROM THIS COMPANY...

Management needs to be more consistent. They will say that they don't micromanage, but will have you come into the office to make cold calls. Products don't work, and they expect you to just keep selling to people as if the problems don't exist!
