Shopping on the Instacart platform is great for anyone looking for flexible, seasonal, entry-level, weekend, weekday, after-school, or temporary opportunities. As an Instacart Full Service Shopper, you can work more flexibly than a part time job.
Anybody is welcome to sign-up, but you’ll likely be a great fit if you already provide services as a personal shopper or are involved in the grocery or transportation industries — jobs like couriers, drivers, truck drivers, professional drivers, taxi drivers, and food delivery drivers will all have readily cross-applicable skills.
