You need internet access or a cell phone with a data plan. The JobStack Worker App is compatible with mobile devices on either iOS or Android operating systems. The app is not compatible with Windows. If you have a limited data plan, we recommend connecting to Wi-Fi prior to downloading the app. 

The JobStack Worker app is available for smartphones. If you do not have a smartphone, you can continue to accept jobs as you do now. Check in regularly with your local branch to learn about job opportunities available to you. 

You will get a notification on your device alerting you when there is an update. Due to the size of the app, we suggest updating it using Wi-Fi. 

JobStack will now act as the main point of communication between you and the branch. Enabling notifications allows you to receive in-app notifications about changes to assignments. If you wish to continue communicating with the branch via text, text YES to 42800 to re-opt in. 

JobStack needs to access your location in order to find you jobs that fit within the travel radius you set. You can change this location in your profile. 

When looking for a job, make sure that your information is up to date and that you are using the latest version of the app. Jobs may not appear due to conflicting job times or search locations. If you need further assistance, call your branch or our support center at 800.518.0104. 

Yes. When you arrive at the site, the app will allow you to confirm that you have arrived. This feature is only available an hour before the start time and up to an hour after. 

Yes. Once you’ve accepted a job, you will see the option to call off from each shift. If you must call off, be certain to contact the branch right away. Keep in mind, frequent call-offs may affect your ability to see jobs in the future. 

Once a customer submits hours, you will be able to confirm your hours worked and rate the job in the app. If you do not agree with what was submitted, you will be prompted to call the branch.

Associates can rate and confirm hours for previous shifts as soon as customers submit hours via the customer app or hours are entered by our branch staff.

You can. Click Menu in the top right hand of the app and then click on the Profile section. From there you can now update the following: 

  • The job titles you can perform and the amount of experience you have in that job type 
  • Any new, relevant job skills you’ve acquired 
  • Any new, relevant certificates and licenses 
  • Your highest level of education 

Please Note: Some of the job titles, skills, certificates and licenses you can update require your branch to verify. Once approved by the branch it will show up in your profile. 

You can update your certifications and licenses in the profile section of the app. 

Updating your profile lets the branch staff and JobStack know what jobs you are able to work. JobStack will only show you assignments that match your qualifications. 

Confirmation notifications allow you to confirm that you will be attending the jobs you select and to let the branch know when you are on your way to the job site. Use these to ensure the job site and branch know they can expect you. 

Please contact your branch and they will assist you to update your profile.

Be sure to contact your branch if you are unable to return to an assignment due to a scheduling conflict.

We encourage all our associates to try the app. When trying anything new, it takes time to adjust. If you get used to checking the app regularly, you will have access to jobs in real time. One thing to keep in mind is that jobs in the app are visible to many qualified associates so you’ll need to respond quickly. Our branches are always available to help you find jobs either on the app or in the branch. 

You can always contact your branch, or you can contact our support center at 800.518.0104.
