We service many industries and GigHound Workers can choose from options such as food production, warehousing and logistics, manufacturing, sanitation and waste control, delivery or swamping, landscaping, catering, event production, as well as many others.
Picking the best option for yourself
The team at GigHound works are to ensure there are always plenty of shifts in different areas and industries available to workers. If you don't have much work experience you may want to start off with a lower difficulty job. If you're not prepared for hard work, or not physically able to lift heavy boxes for example, then you will want to avoid high impact work. The best practice is to read the job description carefully, and examine the details of the post to see what is required of the worker needed.
Selecting shifts based on your needs
GigHound gives workers everything they need to succeed, all in our GigHound mobile app. Once your profile is created and your identity is verified, you will be able to view work opportunities available in your area. Workers can select a morning shift if they have evening obligations, or an afternoon or overnight shift depending on their schedules demands. Make sure to pick shifts when you know you are available to work. Also make sure the shifts you take are accessible by transit if you do not drive. Sometimes earlier shifts are harder to reach, and very rarely transit may not run to the location at all. Always check your transportation ahead of time, and always make sure to check transit for the date and time you will be departing to work.
High impact work vs. Low impact work
If you are physically able, and have the strength needed to carry out more high-impact duties, your progress toward higher rank and potential raises will be faster than if you opted for low-impact work. However if you were to take a higher difficulty job and are unable to meet expectations and complete tasks, your profile would be negatively impacted and your progress toward more shifts and higher wages would be slower. Shifts available on the app will always disclose the weight involved if lifting is part of the job, and there should always be details about difficulty on the job post.
