NEW YORK – Instacart plans to hire 250,000 new workers, that’s in addition to the 300,000 brought on in recent weeks.
The grocery delivery service has seen a surge in demand spurred by the Coronavirus pandemic
The startup wants to hire the new workers over the next two months.
The “full-service shoppers” are treated as independent contractors.
Instacart’s goal is be able to meet the recent high demand and “get back to same-day delivery.”
