I really do enjoy working with Instawork. i’m unsure why so many people wrote bad reviews and the people who have wrote that they have not got paid I always get paid. with any job that you work it’s never perfect but I will say that instawork and their customer care they really really work with us and they do their very best to continue to keep us happy and paid and making good money I’ve had personal issues where I’ve had to miss my shift unexpectedly which would be considered a no-show or I’ve had to cancel last minute and I’ve never had an issue I submit to them a note or whatever that they need and again no issue I would highly highly recommend instawork to anyone as I have already but I will continue to do so. What other job can you pick your hours, what other job can you make endless amounts of money, and what other job offers all of the amazing incentives that instawork offers especially now with the holidays approaching. as I already stated I truly in my heart believe that instawork works there very hardest to make us as much money as possible and to keep us all happy and I think they do a very very very good job at that therefore I would give them nothing under a five star rating and I want to use this opportunity to say thank you instawork for everything that you’ve done and the opportunities, the endless amounts of opportunities that you have given me I love instawork and I will continue to pick up shifts probably for a long time!

Very Cool!!!

The Instawork app is simply user-friendly in just about all aspects that there really could be in regards to finding satisfaction in a product/service, far beyond what you would ever initially anticipate an app to be, simply configuring itself from what you never knew you were ever missing out on in life before so suddenly making impact on being exactly what your life was in true need of, andddd ESPECIALLYYYY SOO in being an app that’s conveniently providing assistance, pioneering more-easible accessibility to resources within the market that specifically pertains crucial to continuing structural rebuild and continuing growth within our economy!

The masters at Instawork have made it so simple for their consumers that in the matter of time it took me to roll out of bed and finish a quick small to medium-size bowl of cereal, not only was I still on usual pace with my regular daily routine but, I next made my way into my morning shower with my personal Instawork profile filled out, all on-boarding documents authorized, and even found myself off to have “completed” a handful of applications “ already.

I don’t see how finding work could really get any much more easier and convenient than this, and do feel like this is a company/app that will own that stance well into the foreseeable future!

Decent platform with software issues and unsupportive of workers

The most frustrating thing about this app is the lack of opportunity and income security. Theres often no shifts available and if you want to get even just 16 hours a week you have to book shifts weeks in advance. There is not a way to find coverage through the platform, you have to message individuals on there. You have can not cancel with the intent of working if no one else takes it and you are penalized for canceling shifts well in advance and those shifts are often booked by others within a day. These penalties result in further difficulty securing hours.
There are also connectivity issues that can prevent you from clocking in and out of shifts. I have to re-confirm every shift because 90 minutes before I get a text message that says I am not tracking to the location and will be pulled off the shift in 30 minutes when I have a 40 minute commute. I've also seen someone be pulled off a shift for not confirming while working a shift and we were left understaffed because if it, even though he still arrived because he didn't know it was canceled, they were unable to get him put back on the shift after attempting to get in contact with Instawork Support and he had to go home.

There isn't alternative option out there, not that I've seen. I've tried a few apps and this one is better but it has a lot of flaws.
