They still hire felons. I didn’t know about this until I found out a shopper was one.
The customers aren’t screened but it’s assumed that a criminal won’t pay for a Shipt membership (and give out their name, credit card info, address, etc.) just so they can find a victim. To my knowledge there have never been any incidents of crime against a shopper.
No, it is assumed by both parties that both are safe.

Yes. We have to go through an application/interview process, background check and training (in person in a new market).

Shoppers go through a background check and provide a photograph that the customers see.

No. Shipt takes any customer that will pay for the service. A Shopper will be offered orders in bad neighborhoods even after dark. It's up to you not to schedule yourself in these areas or not to accept the order. If you don't accept orders, your performance Stas will get penalized however, so better just to learn which areas are safe.
Yes, thexactly people who apply must be cleared from a background check.
