Good When You Can Get Enough Orders

I've worked instacart full time for about 3 months now and I've decided to move on simply due to unreliability of hours. $60 for an hour's work is nice but It's hard to guarantee enough hours to live. Great money as a side gig or for a student if you can swing the good orders. I'll definitely continue working orders occasionally when I get another full time gig.

Pros

Freedom to work when you please

Cons

Inconsistent Frequency of Hours

A lot of issues of the whole system app.

Their system doesn’t work well , and it’s completely in the favour of the buyers. It would work just for the students who are looking for a little financial helps.

Pros

Flexible time of the work.

Cons

Very very low time wage might be possible!!!

On your own time but underpaid

Instacart started decent. It's now turned into an underpaid, overworked gig. You are at the mercy of customers mood. If you are rated anything lower then 5 stars you aren't able to see as much work and in turn don't make as much money. The money you make does not balance out between wear and tear, gas or your time, plus having to pay your own taxes at the end of the year. The support staff are completely unaware of anything going on and spend alot of time copy and pasting their responses. You are better off finding a facebook group with other shoppers if you need actual help. You get the hit if the store is out of stock of product (between tip reductions and customer complaints). Their app updates many times do not help the app and instead end up lagging or completely crashing their own service. Work skip the dishes instead. Its less work and in the end the pay comes out higher.

Pros

You make your own schedule

Cons

Long hours, low pay, miserable customers, unhelpful support staff

Is fun to work for

If you are looking for a full time job or making a living with it is very hard now, there is not en batches, there is to many shoppers, the app get 2 or 3 bar together with higher km snd lower pAyment. The rating system is some kind terrible, as some of the clients do not answer and if they don’t do it they should not rate the shopper. Shopper get rated wrong if he/she can’t fulfill an order and some times there is not knven in the stores.

Pros

You can work at your own time. As much or as little as you wsnt

Cons

Not enou batches to work every day a waste of time and gas in the oSrking lot
