  • Proper license for your Gig. If your Gig requires a specific license like CDL, make sure the candidate you hire has a valid license uploaded to their worker profile.
  • Physical capabilities. Be sure to communicate with your applicants via in app messaging. For example communicate the need to lift up to 50 lbs if your gig requires packing or unloading. We strongly encourage messaging workers before hiring, we have found those that are the most responsive are more likely to show up, and do a great job.

Temporary vs Full-Time Drivers

As demand for your business fluctuates, it’s hard to anticipate the number of drivers you will need at any given time. Of course, you never want to hire more full-time employees than you end up needing. Since you likely experience peak sales periods based on time of year, COVID-19, or other unexpected factors, you can utilize temporary workers as supplementary staff who can help right when you need it. Hiring additional full time employees is time consuming and expensive. Gig workers can help fill the gaps of your existing staff to meet your demand fast. Better than your typical driver staffing agency, GigSmart lets you choose who you hire, the hourly rate, and the date.

Furthermore, GigSmart beats any average driver staffing agency because it’s the most cost-effective solution in the marketplace. With a low direct hire fee of $250, save time and money on staffing full-time employees by test driving the right workers before your hire.
