What Users Say: (From Glassdoor)
I worked at Shiftgig part-time for less than a year
Was hired fast…and there was no interview except a quick look at my resume…fine by me..
Lack of communication and responsibility for their employees… I did one gig…that I never even got paid for…

It got my foot into working with a flexible schedule as I attended school and worked on my business. Definitely was a positive app for me and would recommend at least trying it out.
At the time I was working, I would have liked a higher wage. But I see alot of catering companies are lowering their wages, alas. Maybe things have changed.
