Lots of dumb things about this about. Like how you have to add work experience for things you've done. As a solo cook in lots of jobs, I've also had to do extra like bus table and such, put it in my resume but still needs to be explained to this app. Read the resume. Shouldn't have to add work experience, especially for how many jobs nowadays have you do multiple positions. Also lack of jobs in the Baltimore area too.

We understand your frustration with having to add work experience manually and we are working on improving this process. We also appreciate your feedback regarding the job availability in the Baltimore area and we will strive to bring more opportunities to that region.

So far, so good! Easy and intuitive UI, super helpful people at the helm with tons of resources to land you in the right place. My only criticism is that there aren't nearly enough job postings for this market. Feels like we are scrambling over one another for a chance to grab some crumbs. Hoping maybe it's just the time of year, so five stars good now at least!

Installed the app and went thru ALL the steps and hoops they have you jump thru......alot of onboarding stuff. And the only work I've gotten thru them is the job it was to sign up!!!! Always it's "all shifts are taken please try back later"!!!!! But it never changes. Been on there 3 weeks and no work. All the categories say in high demand yet all positions remain taken. Stupid app and it don't help you get work. Don't waste your time installing!!!!

We're sorry about your experience so far and appreciate your feedback. We are continuously working to add more businesses to our platform and encourage to check back-in often, as new shifts get posted daily.

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**
