Frequently asked questions

How does Instawork verify and validate workers on the platform?

Instawork uses a variety of tools to vet workers including requiring past experience and in-app quizzes to test skills and knowledge. As workers continue to work shifts, they also build up a profile of record with ratings and specific feedback from other businesses. This helps to refine our worker pool to only the highest quality candidates.

Are there any upfront fees or costs?

There are no costs to get started.

How do you pre-screen workers?

Workers who sign up on Instawork have to create a detailed profile. We collect and verify over 30 skills data points, including work history, skill quizzes, professional references, and valid certifications.

We’re different from local temp agencies because these data points are available to you to review via their profile. Plus, once they start completing shifts through Instawork, we continue to assess their work performance with ratings, feedback, and on-time metrics.

What cities does Instawork operate in?

Right now, Instawork operates in over 40 metro markets and surrounding areas across North America.
