As we’ve often mentioned here on Rat Race Rebellion, the “on-demand” economy has spawned all kinds of non-cubicle side jobs for people who love flexibility… and extra cash. Everything from driving for Uber (even if you have bad credit and don’t have a car) to getting paid to watch videos or take polls or go to the movies.
Instacart, for example, lets customers order food online from stores like Whole Foods, Costco, Target and others, for delivery in an hour or two. They’re seeking people for a variety of grocery shopping-related roles, including:
Shop for grocery orders in local stores.
Work the cash register to check out orders
Deliver groceries from local stores to customers.
|Driver + Shopper
Shop for groceries and deliver them to customers
Instacart recently restructured their pay model, and that has been getting a lot of attention – good and bad. In their own words, “We have made some recent rate changes to reduce variability in how much shoppers earn, and we are constantly innovating to help shoppers get more orders. After these changes our shoppers will earn, on average, an effective rate of $15-$20/hour, which is both in line with historical levels and strongly competitive within our markets.” Your mileage may vary on the income, but click the link at the end of this post to learn more about the variables.
