    I have been working at Handy full-time

    Pros

    The pros were basically due to being a remote worker. I enjoyed meeting new people and giving presentations. I liked the people I worked with.

    Cons

    Unorganized and inexperienced staff in positions of high responsibility. Faulty business model caused a lot of issues that were hard to resolve. I don't think the company was created with the intention of lasting very long.

    I worked at Handy part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The only "pro" to working for this company is the efficient way to find jobs. After that- its all downhill.

    Cons

    Faulty app, incorrect charges, wage garnishment and fees for missing or being late ,no support at all, no incentives, you pay for EVERYTHING (supplies, travel) , will not pay overtime, and they make about a 45% profit on your jobs.

    I worked at Handy part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    What isn't great about these guys. Free lunch and snacks. Incredibly smart and resourceful people to work with. Best encounter of teamwork I've ever experienced. I grew to love my coworkers.

    Cons

    None at all. Managment does a great job emphasizing goals without putting their staff down.
