10 Reasons Being a Shipt Shopper is Super Awesome
Shipt Shoppers are fabulous. If you have met one, then you already know. You’d certainly feel fabulous if you were partnering with a tech startup shopping for groceries for serious dough. But why did they decide to take on the responsibility of shopping for someone else? Here are 10 reasons why being a Shipt Shopper is super awesome.
1. You become an expert grocery shopper.
Shipt Shoppers are well-versed in selecting produce, and achieve accuracy with every order. They also learn how to navigate the aisles faster than you can say “gluten-free baking flour.” This is a skill that takes most years to achieve, but after a few shops, Shipt Shoppers pretty much have grocery shopping down to a fine art, fast.
2. Jam sessions happen all day.
Sometimes you just need an excuse to hop in your car and let loose your inner Beyonce. Second to the shower, your voice will never sound better than it does in the car. As a Shipt Shopper, you’ll get paid to sing in your car. Between shopping and delivering groceries, Shipt Shoppers really hone their falsetto.
3. Be Your Own Boss
Let’s be honest, who hasn’t had a terrible boss? Don’t let the man keep you down! Now is your chance to take control. Work as much or as little as your heart desires. Being an independent contractor means you are your own boss.
4. You get to meet new people.
Shipt Shoppers are social beings. They come in contact with people constantly. Whether it is bonding with your ‘regular’ grocery bagger, or chatting with your customer when you deliver their second order that week, there is always someone to meet.
5. Set your own schedule!
Not only do Shipt Shoppers make their own schedules, the schedules are extremely flexible. From 8 a.m. until 10 p.m. seven days a week, there is always a time to pick up a delivery. It’s even a great opportunity for a stay-at-home mom or college kid to make some extra money.
6. Helping others always feels good.
Whether it is delivering to an elderly person who might not be able to get around as well as they used to, or delivering to a working parent who just wants one extra hour a day to spend with their kids, knowing that you helped them out gives most Shipt Shoppers a warm, fuzzy feeling. People truly find grocery delivery valuable to their day-to-day life. It’s a feeling of accomplishment and fulfillment that you can’t just find anywhere.
7. The Green Shirt.
Shipt Shoppers get to wear the COOLEST shirt when they shop and deliver groceries. It is the greatest color green that is honestly flattering on everybody. Everyone in the grocery store recognizes the look and you feel like a local grocery celebrity walking through the store. People will literally stop and ask you what you do. Plus it has the Shipt logo on it. It’s a spaceship. Enough said.
8. Let’s be real: It pays really well.
You make $15 — $25 an hour, all on your own time. WOW. Just after doing a few deliveries, Shipt Shoppers are pretty much raking in the cash.
9. Break free from the 9-to-5.
Some people were not designed to sit at a desk indoors for eight hours a day. This opportunity gives hope to the people in need of some wide open spaces. Shipt Shoppers get to move around and get out into the great outdoors all while still make money.
10. It’s really fun.
This fact just kind of ties all the others together. Doesn’t all of this just sound like a good time? Driving around, listening to music, setting your own schedule, meeting people… doesn’t sound like “work” to me.
11. FREE MEMBERSHIP!!!!!!
Did we say ten reasons? Here’s a MAJOR bonus. Yep, you heard us. As long as you are a Shipt Shopper, you have a free grocery delivery membership for yourself. What could be better?
