Frequently asked questions

Why is Instawork supporting America's military community?

Instawork is proud to connect the military community - transitioning service members, military spouses, and veterans - with American businesses.

Instawork is excited to provide flexible work opportunities to this community, creating the ability for these hard workers to create a work schedule that best suits their personal needs and financial goals. In particular, as our Troops are working hard to defend and protect our country, their spouses often leave the workforce to take care of their families while deployed or relocated.

What are the benefits for businesses?

Instawork helps businesses in food & beverage, hospitality, and warehouse/logistics industries fill temporary and permanent job opportunities in more than 40 markets across North America.

Becoming an Instawork Partner instantly connects you to a network of more than 5 million reliable, vetted hourly workers, many of them members of the military community.

What are the benefits for the military community?

Hourly workers who are ready to leverage flexible work can easily download the app, create a profile, find a shift that matches their skills and interests, and start working in as little as 24 hours. In addition to hospitality shifts, Pros can find shifts in retail, warehouse logistics, and light industrial.

Hourly professionals using Instawork experience:

  • Work flexibility: build schedules around personal lives and income goals
  • Financial stability: view shift earnings before you work
  • Unlimited income potential: work as little or as much as you want
  • Get paid quickly: ability to get paid the same day with Instapay
  • Unique and exciting work opportunities

How can military spouses in particular benefit from using Instawork?

Instawork shifts offer an opportunity for military spouses to pursue flexible, well-paying work

  • “Take your job with you” - Spouses can pick up shifts as they are stationed in different areas across the country.
  • “Take time off” - Spouses can work whenever deployment schedules allow them to do so and take breaks as needed.
  • “Take care of your family” - Being a military spouse is stressful, particularly during deployments. Flexible work allows spouses to work around other obligations, including caretaking.
