Former Freelancer - In Store Shopper

I worked at Instacart for less than a year

Pros

Instacart has a few great benefits, they are really understanding! I had lots of fun working for Instacart, work never felt like work.

Cons

I think the app was a little confusing, I would have like to see a simpler update of the app.

Advice to Management

overall, I really enjoyed how my supervisor at the time managed our time flow. she made it so easy and so fun to work with her. Some days it felt like a friendly competition.
