How to Find Jobs Quickly With JobStack

These four easy steps are the best way for job seekers to make the most of JobStack and find jobs quickly and easily.

Man on his phone

Remember life before smartphones and apps? Yeah, neither do we. The joke that there’s an app for everything feels like a lifetime ago. Now, there truly does seem like to be an app for everything, ranging from the silly to the essential. There are even apps to help you manage your apps.

Luckily, there are also apps that let you conveniently find work. One example is JobStack, which lets you find on-demand work when and where you want it.

You’re probably wondering, “I already have a lot of apps—why is JobStack worth the coveted space on my home screen?” Simply put: You can find jobs more quickly than ever before just by taking steps you’re already taking. It’s no extra work on your part, but you’ll see great results.

Reggie Davis, a user of JobStack, says, "Jobstack matches me perfectly with jobs that are closer to me and shows us important information about the job that we are going to. In the morning before work, Jobstack will send me an alert to inform me that my job is about to begin and it has a notification letting the staff know I've arrived. I don't have to do anything but accept the job offer and go to work."

Here are four ways to use JobStack to speed up your job search:

  1. Apply to PeopleReady
    Once you’ve applied to PeopleReady and passed the review process, you’ve got the green light to start using the JobStack app. Why do we do it this way? Because we want to get the screening process out of the way so that you don’t have any delays once you start using the app. The good news is that if you’ve already used PeopleReady to find work, you’re ready to go!
  2. Accept jobs
    One of JobStack’s most innovative features is how it learns what jobs are the best match for you. It’s quite simple: The more jobs you accept, the more it understands which gigs you prefer. So over time your JobStack experience is truly unique to you, which means you spend less time browsing through jobs that don’t interest you.
  3. Ace the gig
    The app lets employers give feedback on your performance, which factor into your overall rating. Workers with low ratings because they didn’t show up to the job or who didn’t perform won’t receive job offers via JobStack, but workers with positive feedback will have more opportunities come their way. Don’t forget: The app also lets you give feedback on the jobs you take.
  4. Follow your own schedule
    The benefit of using an app to find work is that it’s always ready when you need it (and it’s still ready when you don’t need it). And since you don’t need to go into a branch to accept jobs or submit hours, you get to create the schedule that works for you.

JobStack Helps You Find Disaster Recovery Work

PeopleReady has a long history of bringing workers to affected areas and our mobile app, JobStack, has made the process easier and more efficient. See how JobStack works.

August 26, 2020

When natural disasters occur, they leave weeks—even months—of recovery work behind. Everyone in the affected communities are eager to begin rebuilding their lives. Soon after, and in some cases before the event occurs, you will see a surge of new temporary jobs. There might be debris that needs to be moved or construction projects for displaced residents or temporary cleanup efforts. There could even be longer term roles for ongoing issues, like plumbing.

What matters most to these communities is speed. No one has time to wait. If you’re eager to join these efforts and take jobs that help disaster recovery, you want to find them as soon as possible. PeopleReady has a long history of bringing workers to affected areas and our mobile app, JobStack, has made the process easier and more efficient.

Here are four ways JobStack makes finding work in the wake of a natural disaster simpler:

See Available Jobs

Once the community is able to assess the damage and focus on moving forward, businesses and organizations start looking for workers immediately, whether to move debris or staff a call center to handle an onslaught of customer service calls. With JobStack, you’re able to view real-time job postings on your phone and choose the ones you want. This convenient feature, available at any time, is crucial during post-disaster cleanup.  

Submit Hours

As you can imagine, natural disaster sites can be hectic in the following days and weeks. JobStack’s “Submit Hours” feature allows you to submit work hours (and lets managers approve them) from the ease of your phone; no need to drive to a physical location or find the supervisor to submit your time ticket.

Work Around Your Schedule

Recovery efforts aren’t always 9-to-5 gigs, meaning opportunities for work aren’t limited to a specific time of day. Whether you’re a resident of the area or temporarily there to work, you don’t have to worry that your schedule might prevent you from earning a paycheck. JobStack lets you see what’s available and choose only the opportunities that work for you.

Use Your Phone

Internet connectivity isn’t always reliable in the aftermath of a natural disaster or major storm, which can lead to a myriad of problems and plenty of frustration. Luckily, you only need a working smartphone to use the app. Every feature we’ve mentioned above—from the job listings to the ability to submit hours—is available as long as your phone has a signal.

Did you know that last year over 3 million shifts were filled using PeopleReady’s app, JobStack? We could tell you how great we think JobStack is, but we know that the most meaningful opinions come from the workers who actually use the app to find the work they want, when they want it. After all, when it comes to downloading another app on your phone—especially one that involves something as important as your career—you want to make sure you’re making a smart move.

Convenience Was Missing Before JobStack

Before using JobStack, what were the top two challenges for workers? Having to travel to a local branch for every job opportunity and finding work that fits their desired schedule (with a desirable commute coming in at a close fourth). The common thread of these challenges: convenience. 

“JobStack has improved my job search because I can plan ahead on scheduling my time and work week: I can be placed on long term assignments. I can see when my hours have been submitted. The app is a great tool for convenience.” 

JobStack user

And after they started using JobStack, more than half of workers said they appreciated not having to travel to a branch to find work. Convenient schedules and a good commute also improved as a result of the app.

“[JobStack] basically simplified the job search. It’s cut my travel time by 50%. It lets me view all assignments before I commit to one.”
