What is it like to work at Instacart?

3.2Work/Life Balance
2.0Job Security/Advancement
Only good if you're being supported by somebody else

Working here is great if you can get benefits through a parent or partner. It'll put a toll on your life, on your car, and your hope in humanity. Workers are not compensated fairly, taxes are not removed from your paycheck, you pay for every gallon of gas you put in your car (which for me was a fill up every threeish days) and you are blamed for every - more ... problem a customer encounters while you work on their order. The biggest plus is getting to help people who are truly in need of the service and getting to keep your headphones in all day. - less
Prosfreedom of movement, don't have to interact with many customers a day
Consno benefits, no job security, no guarantee of hours, no compensation for travel, next to no support, no mercy really
