Thanks for using Instawork to find hourly gigs at local businesses. We’re currently operating in most major cities and coming soon to more!
In this version of the application, we have performance improvements after switching away from a deprecated module.
**Note: now also hiring for essential services, such as warehouse workers, janitorial staff, retail merchandisers, and more**
Ratings and Reviews
You know I’m SHOCKED at all the poor ratings Instawork has gotten! I have experienced the complete opposite with this app! Let me tell you, it is AMAZING! Once I started my first gig, I just kept continuing accepting gigs. Of coarse you start from the bottom and work your way up the pay rate. That’s just how life is! You might get paid $17-$25 for the first couple gigs, then you’ll start to see the $25-$49 per hour gigs once they seen you worked for it. That’s in any job! And if your not serious of coarse they will not take you serious! Everyone has to be accountable for there actions here! It seems like everyone that’s writing a review about the deactivation is just blaming the app! Look we are all adults here! Be accountable and your deactivate wouldn’t even happen geesh! Anyways I love this app, yes there are a few things they can change about it but doesn’t everyone start from somewhere? ALL AROUND GREAT APP! GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE, GREAT EMPLOYERS, & GREAT JOB! SPECIALLY GREAT PAY! Your buggin if you think differently!
This app will get you some great gigs, don’t get me wrong. But they clearly could use some temp workers of their own to deal with all of the technical problems they have. First of all, if anything goes unexpected with your shift don’t expect to be paid for your work. I wasn’t able to clock out for my first shift and still haven’t been paid even though I’ve filed a complaint-this is over a month ago now. Every person I’ve met from Instawork who’s worked at least a few gigs have had this issue. Pretty problematic when you’re expecting hundreds of dollars but those just never appear. Today though, was the trigger for this review. I booked a shift last night and drove over an hour to get here. Over twenty minutes before my shift, while I was 3 minutes away from the l’ovation, they texted me saying I wouldn’t make it so they removed me. So now I’ve invested my time and money but I get removed with no prior notice and no compensation. Of course their app has no means to to address problems such as these (they have preset catatonies of problems that you can choose from, oh and there’s no phone number to call. So yeah def download if you feel like planning on work and pay just to have it, virtually randomly, erased. I know other workers who’ve had shifts they booked disappear with not even a message at the time of occurrence. Clearly they either need to get some better software, or more human help to address the problems that are created with what they have.
A lot of bugs need to be fixed on this app
Ok first of all. I’m reading complaints from people and they are still putting 5 stars. I wish people would rate accordingly so they can fix the things that are wrong with the app. Second of all there are waaaaaaayyyyyyyyy too many people on the platform and not enough jobs. When a gig comes up it’s gone with in seconds and to make it worse the app has difficulty showing the available gig when it pops up. I’m not sure why that is. When I click on earnings or any other tab the information pops up right away. But when I try to see open gigs it can take anywhere from 1-5 minutes to open and by then the gig has been taken. The way they rank people and give certain people priority is really unfair. Also note you are an independent contractor which means they can work you your entire shift without giving you a break or meal break. A lot of the companies take advantage of that they also lie in the add and say free parking and meals provided a lot of that is untrue setting you up for failure. They also have it so other Instawork peers can rate you which I also think is unfair because people can lie to get you off the platform so they can have more work. Almost everything about this app is messed up. They really need to fix it. Hopefully another company comes out with a better version of this app.
