It does not show the candidate profile
This app was doing great until they didn't screw it up! Now you can't see the profile of your candidates from your phone. It gets stuck and you're waiting and waiting...no answer
You gotta first check it from your PC answer on the chat system and then use the app only to see your candidates.
I hope they will fix it soon.
They do not verify that workers are qualified or ethical
The instawork staff (not workers) are HORRIBLE AND INCOMPETENT! It’s like dealing with the worst used car salesman who is on dope you’ve ever seen. They don’t value the workers, even if the businesses always rate you highly. They are shady about pay and won’t pay you if a business cancels the gig with less than 24 hr notice, which can cause you to miss other jobs. They rarely respond to inquiries and treat you like cattle if they do. I hope they go out of business because it seems like they are already on their way. Poor quality oversight and they don’t prequalify any workers so you are always taking a gamble when hiring thru them. They charge an average of $7-8 per hour per worker on top of booking fee and worker pay rate. Very risky to your business reputation and brand.
This “business” is the biggest scam out there.
I had to refund several clients because of the servers and bartenders short comings. The bartenders do not know how to bartend and the servers 9 times out of ten are awful. These people don’t check references, don’t do background checks and are awful business people. Besides the actual cost of the staff this business has put me out over 3k now on top of the inflated staffing costs. They will hate you with the low prices but then it’s anything but that hourly price to hire the staff.

THERE ARE OTHER WAYS TO HIRE STAFF AND I LEARNED THE HARD WAY THIS IS NOT THE WAY!
