How to make money and holiday magic with flexible work in Orlando

Sunshine, beaches, and a very famous mouse. Orlando is fun at any time of year and it’s especially magical at the holidays. 

But when the costs of the festivities add up, the festive vibe can switch from joyous to stressful faster than you can say “theme park.”

Instead, workers in Orlando can now fund their holiday spending with Instawork. Utilizing flexible work allows you to build the schedule you want to have during this busy time of year, leaving you time to enjoy this sparkling season with your family and friends.

The average hourly pay rate on the Instawork platform in the Orlando metro area is $17 per hour – well over the state’s minimum wage of $11.

While Florida recently upped its minimum wage by a dollar as part of its six-year plan to bring the minimum wage to $15 by 2026, flexible workers who join Instawork won’t have to wait years to achieve the increased level of income. You can get fast access to higher pay rates - even more important with current inflation and a recession looming. And those holiday presents aren’t going to pay for themselves!

While many Instawork Pros use the platform as their full time job, others enjoy grabbing shifts to make extra cash. 

Jonathan, a teacher and tutor in Orlando, uses flexible work to lead shifts as an Instawork Captain in his spare time. From event serving to prep cook to warehouse work, he’s done it all! Concerts are his favorite shift to work. And he says his next Instawork challenge is going to be bartending.

He told us, “I love the flexibility and the ability to transfer shifts depending on what my schedule is like with my students. And the ability to try things I haven’t done before is great.”

Businesses can access quality Pros

High quality, reliable Instawork Pros are matched with businesses, Instawork Partners, to fill available shifts and deliver valuable services.
