“We needed a lot of people, and always had difficulty finding them—especially when we need 200 or 300 staff to work for a day. Instawork is great, and the people we get are great.”

Greg Casella

How do you vet the staff?

People who sign up on Instawork have to create a detailed profile. We collect and verify over 10 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.
