What Users Say: (From Indeed)
I accepted a full time temp job only to show up and say it didn’t exist. I turned down two full time jobs because I had committed to a job that didn’t exist. Three weeks later I’m still waiting to . I will be reporting them to the labor board.actually talk with someone about it. Now they have deactivated my account and ate still ignoring me.
Cons: Just about everything you could imagine
The job it’s self is awesome! They have an app and you basically work from your phone… you clock in and out, it tells you how far to commute to work ….
Pros: They pay out every Friday
Cons: Gotta wait til Friday to get paid
It’s a good opportunity for motivated individuals. Sometimes the app can act buggy, effecting payroll. They have a point system that offers employees free trainings and prizes! Overall a positive experience.
