From my experience it helped me alot with speed and being able to pick out the specific things within an order. It made me more particular to detail as well as substitutes for the customer and can work as experience for jobs that require driving or delivery

It’s a great side hustle, in my area it’s not very consistent with order availability. Instacart has helped me a lot with attention to detail for sure, and time management. Communication is also key in the job, and you really have to prioritize your skills in following through with updates and subs. To maximize your time, it’s a good strategy to multitask by taking multiple batches or another order on a different platform, and that’s really where time works against you, but money adds up quick.

If you have a car and some free time, you might want to work with Instacart, a company where some people have confessed that they can earn up to $ 480 a week.

There are two ways you can earn money working with Instacart:

  • 1 - As a shopper in the store - Shoppers in the Instacart store take orders through the app and then purchase and bag the groceries. As a shopper, you don’t have to deliver orders, just process them.

  • 2 - As a full-service buyer - Full-service shoppers take orders, pick them in store, bag them, and deliver them to customers at the agreed time.

Remember that your location and the time of day your orders are placed could also influence the amount of money you earn.

Four years later, Instacart increasingly resembles Amazon, with hundreds of thousands of workers, deliveries that range from food to office supplies, and reported interest in building high-tech warehouses.

"Instead Instacart became a mini-Amazon!"

While Amazon is known as the "everything store," Instacart is now expanding what it delivers -- from sporting goods to makeup and televisions, read full article

61 year-old Instacart shopper Kathy shares her story about the hiring process and what it's been like working for #Instacart before COVID began as well as today. Here is her story...

I started delivering groceries for Instacart four years ago, after a former coworker told me about how he was making extra money on the side. Previously I worked in administration in the medical field. 

I decided to leave my job and do something fun where I could make a comfortable living, and I've always loved grocery shopping. This also has given me a chance to meet new people and serve others.

I am 61, so I am not as young as many of the Instacart shoppers right now. I consider myself a seasoned shopper The application process is unlike anything I was ever familiar with. You have an interview with someone over the phone, you have a background check, but you never meet anyone in person. 

It took about three weeks from my first initial interview until my first day shopping. There was no in-person training; instead, we were given instructional videos to watch about how to weigh groceries, select items, and use the app. On your first order you try to take small batches just to get the hang of it. 

Instacart's algorithm works so that the more time you put in that you are available to shop, the more orders you will receive. You will also be at the top of the list when a new order comes in. If you mark that you are unavailable one day, you will get a ding and get placed at the bottom the next time you are available. Most gig work is like this and runs on a round-robin algorithm.

In the four years I've been shopping for Instacart, I've averaged 25,000 to 30,000 miles on my Kia Optima just delivering groceries in west Portland.

As a five-star shopper — meaning I have an average of 5-star customer reviews — I try to make no less than $20 to $25 an hour because I don't want to push myself too hard and get hurt. I aim for $1,000 a week, but try to not make less than $750.

At the beginning of the pandemic, there were nearly 1,000 Instacart shoppers in my zone. Probably because people were out of work and looking for additional income. The number of shoppers has gone down since the state reopened in June, because people maybe are back at work, or didn't like being a shopper. 

During the spring months of the coronavirus pandemic, my car was like a medical supply store. I didn't stop working, so I made sure to have ample disposable masks, hand sanitizer and disinfectant. I also carried bottles of water, tissues, and gloves.

On the Instacart app we are required to take and log our temperature for the day and report whether or not we were experiencing symptoms before we start delivering.    Those first two months of the pandemic, there was no idle time. We were in such high demand. There were so many orders. Sometimes, before the pandemic, you could sit in your car before a new batch came in and rest, but during March and April we had no time to rest. 

I never felt afraid of getting sick, because I trusted the precautions I was taking. I knew it was important to do this job during this scary time, because a lot of our customers are seniors and single moms who may not have the time or opportunity to go to the grocery store.
