    Pros

    Pros

    There are no pros. Unless your a homeless, broke crack addict.

    Cons

    They take over 65% of the money. The app sucks bad. They cancel jobs on you if you don't respond to a random text message confirming a job the next day even when you already confirmed it and accepted it. They want to charge you when they do this.

    I worked at Handy (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The app worked. That's all I got.

    Cons

    The pay scale is horrible. For example, to go put together a piece of furniture that takes one hour to build is $17. The customer was charged $67 to have the unit built. I drive 20 minutes to get $17.

    Advice to Management

    The problem is clear. I don't know how you solve it. Your company works if there are enough people that are extremely desperate to make a couple dollars.

    chaeting on you, no response or after days

    Advice to Management

    Handy is cheating on you, you have to share work with somebody you never met before, cancellation fee was in this case higher than the pay. the HANDY Pro App is fake only they charge you $8 extra fee but you do not get more jobs. First three jobs were good after that it slows down and you have to take care that you get your money. I have more than ones to mount a TV over 60 in and in my work order it says under 45 in...

    Pros

    Set own hours. Meet interesting people. Lead generator.

    Cons

    Pay, support, distance, unruly cancellation fees, rating always at risk. If you set your availability to open they will force jobs onto you even if its only a one hour job and 40 miles away. Now they are paying as low as $15 an hour.
