I absolutely live the job!

I would rate 5 stars for the job itself. They pay great for part time and I love how you create your own schedule. You are almost your own boss. I love working with the pals and knowing in helping others as a living. The only reason it’s 4 stars is because the app needs to be improved. It’s very slow like cancelling visits takes a while through the chat group. The biggest issue I have is leaving a review for the papa member themself. Unfortunately they make it so you can’t submit the review until you select a task you completed but some members don’t have any tasks to select! So it’s just constantly popping up when I refresh the app and is a reoccurring problem. Besides that I really really can say for once I love my job and love working with the members. I wish there was benefits and more members so this can be my life long career because I wouldn’t complain a day.

Good side job/could be a great full time job!

I have been doing Papa Pal for maybe a year or more. I think it is a great app and does really provide the help for those elderly in need. I have helped many clients in this app and they were really appreciated the help. I even had regulars for several months but unfortunately for some reason I no longer seen their request in the apps. There are some pros and cons to working with Papa Pal. The Pros are you can get paid within 1-2 days; also depends on your bank, the client hours are usually anywhere from 2 to 4 hours depending on client needs/hours left in the year, and my clients were usually about 5 to 15 mins away unless I chose a farther away client and you could potentially get a bonus if a client really needs help and they haven’t found anyone to fill that schedule. The Cons are that you can’t pick up clients back to back; the clients hours would overlap (they really need to make it where Pals can do back to back clients), the pay is like near minimum wage, I also would have like to help the clients with more than just cleaning. Sometimes if you get done with the task early the clients usually don’t need or want anything else but cleaning and you end up losing 30 mins or more of your 2 hours your scheduled for which is not good since your only there for 2 hours . So I really think if Papa adjusts a few things, and really takes the feedback into consideration this app would be 4 or 5 stars.

Great but needs work!

Ok so I have been working with this app for a few days and I think it could be better. I think it should allow us to take on job that are back to back. I only service a certain area and everyone I service is within a 10 to 15 min radius to me or each other. I am so detailed with my schedule that it annoys me to have so much open time on my schedule. We should also be allowed to take on and adjust schedules of clients, because as it stand so many of them get missed because they are close enough to someone servicing near by but it’s to close to or starts when one ends. Like if you finish with someone at 10 and some one right around the corner needed someone at 10 it shouldn’t be a problem to allow them to be picked up and made aware that the Pal is not to far away and if they are willing to allow the Pal up to 15 minute to reach them they could also get the services they need. Which would just adjust the schedule from 10 to 10:15 and the client still gets the help they need. I mean that would make sense that if a Pal wanted to help further they could. Which would cut down on individuals getting miss and neglected. Or at least allow booking 15 minutes apart not 30. I’m sure individuals who do these jobs know how to schedule themselves and how to navigate they areas on what’s best for the Pal and the Papa.
