It's a good app and helps find you a good amount of different jobs. Also offers temp to hire opportunities and paid back up, and it's been consistent and reliable and also has very good work environments to work for. I think it's stands alone as one of the best gig / temp to hire job / gig application and employment helper. Also all the people who work at together at different locations can easily stay in contact thru the app, so it's also got great communication and team work skills.

It's impossible to change your address with the app, and there's no way to filter your results or even receive them if you're in an area that has no opportunities. I travel full-time in my van and need to be able to change my location on the fly this app is absolutely useless without being able to do that

There paid back up system is flawed, and if you don't know how to use it. You'll get kicked off the app with a suspension and you won't ever get that four hours pay. Their customer support is also one of the worst around, and it's clear they just reply with conversations templates. This would be an amazing app otherwise, but unfortunately due to their just chat contact options that might get you a new person each time. It makes the app useless after a single slip up. Even if you did your work.

What's new

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**
