Personal Shopper in Abbotsford, BC
Stressful, heavy work load and very fast paced with horrible compensation
Hard work, very fast paced with horrible pay. You dont make enough to live off if unless you have no life and can work all the time to make up for it. Lots of competition.
An addiction, not a job
Constantly stressing about ratings. Unfair access to loads are based on the rating system. You have to be glued to your phone for hours to catch a good order. Once you do start getting good orders, you get addicted and it's very hard to stop for the day. The company does not care about its workers at all. We are an expendable commodity to them, and any feedback we give is ignored at best. Instacart only cares about profits.Do not fall into this trap unless you are truly desperate for income.
Full service shopper in Kitchener-Waterloo, ON
They never care what you think. The only thing they care is setting barriers for you! You cannot get any help from the service support. They didn’t nothing but waste your time.
Shipper/Receiver in Brampton, ON
worst company ever to work with
no matter how good you are, you are paid under minimum wedge, no benifits of doing work, they have hired so many people - you do not get even sufficient shift, management is greedy
Full Service Shopper in Vancouver, BC
A questionable company with poor customer and contractor support
Do not join this slowly eroding work factory that pays you for 1/2 your actual mileage, provides very elementary support and sees customer service as something to be managed, rather than done well. While people literally risk their lives providing this service, Instacart has flooded larger cities with shoppers who now battle it out for diminishing orders. Their shopper rating algorithm is flawed in that only one or two reviews of less than perfect can cost a shopper thousands of dollars in lost orders. Undependable.
