Only received 1 order in my zone all week (well, 2, but the second order was canceled due to app issues).
It actually is fun doing it. It’s like a game, since it tests your speed grocery shopping.
The app goes off 30 minutes before your shift starts. Then once your shift starts it’s actively looking for orders. You’re basically on-call the whole shift.
I think I will stick with this for awhile and see how the next couple of weeks go before I check in again about it. So wish me luck with getting orders. I just found out yesterday that my zone is new, which is why I haven’t been getting many just yet.
The great thing is, I can do this to supplement the income I have, and it’s a great job to start out with if you have a disability (physical or mental), and you want to start slow or keep a slightly slower pace. (Bonus points if you are already a fast worker to begin with).
Yep. Second day working for Instacart, and it’s been a complete bust both days.
No batches, no orders = No work. Period. For two days.
The day started with it reminding me about shift, 30 minutes before it started. It actively looks for orders the whole shift. So you don’t have to. Unfortunately, there’s no hotspots in my area where orders are more or less. I talked to customer support and I learned it’s just my area. Although, they really aren’t much help.
I really want this to work out. I do have high hopes and high expectations, because it’s just the perfect job (working from my phone all day). We will see, though. I will give it a week, maybe two, and reevaluate it. Or perhaps, just have it as a side “side” job.
