The follow the steps below to set up your account in the app to get hired.

Step 1. Set Your Pay

Set your default pay rate. Your default pay rate is what you would like to get paid for jobs. There are two types of pay rates you can set. 

Type 1: The whole job.

The pay you want for the entire job. You will not charge for mileage or number of hours.

Type 2: Per/Hour and/or Per/Mile

You will charge a set amount per hour or per mile.

Step 2. Set The Types Of Jobs You Want

Set the kinds of jobs you want by setting your skills in the app. Check the box next to each skill you have, and enter the number of years experience you have for that skill.

You can enter as many as you like, but you should only enter the ones you really know how to do because at the end of the job you will get a rating.

 

If you mess up or do a poor job, your employer may give you a low rating, this reduces your chances of getting another job on the app.

Step 3. Respond to Job Offers

After telling the Little Side Jobs app the kinds of jobs you want by entering your skills, It will instantly alert you when someone wants to hire someone with your skills. 

When you get the alert, you only have a short time (around 1 minute) to respond by applying for the job if you are interested in it. 

 

If you don't respond within a certain time, the job will disappear from your screen and you will no longer be able to apply for it. So once you get a job alert you have to apply quickly!

How Do I Get Paid?

With Little Side Jobs, NO CASH is involved (for safety reasons).

 

All jobs are paid for ahead of time with a debit/credit card.

 

This pay is stored in a holding account until the job is done.

 

At the end of the job, if the employer is satisfied with the work, they themselves will use the app to release your pay to your account.

 

Payments from different jobs you do will accumulate in your account. At the press of a button in the app, you can withdraw that money at anytime from a bank as cash. 

To pick up your cash pay:

  1. Press a button in the app to withdraw your money

  2. Within a few days you will get a text message telling you the money is available for pick up
