    I have been working at Handy as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Make money part time on your schedule.

    Cons

    Low pay, bad app glitches, bad mapping scheme, will "accidentally" overpay and then deduct from next paycheck

    Advice to Management

    You will not retain talent with such a poorly organized platform. Good workers will quickly go elsewhere. Also $14/hr for cleaning? If you think you'd Pros aren't stealing jobs and customers left and right, you're crazy. This app is totally unsustainable.

    Flexibility, app is very easy to use, decent pay (£8/hour), some customers can be very nice and give you tips, would recommend to a student in part time or full time work.

    "Over worked - Under payed."

    I worked at Handy as a contractor

    Pros

    -Flexibility
    -Simplicity of the app
    - Independent contractor (No supervision)
    - Good to have as a part time side job. Do not make this your career.

    Cons

    Working at Handy I felt over worked and under payed. Cleaners start with $15 an hour but most jobs are only 2-3 hours and only pay $30-$45 per job. To make okay money you would have to clean 2 to 3 houses every day, which means if you don't own a car you will spend a lot of time commuting and that can be very exhausting.Sometimes the customers are not even home when you get there causing you to start your job late. They expect you to do a good deep cleaning in 2 hours. This is not enough time to clean a 1 bath 1 bedroom or better yet a 1 bath 2 bedroom. And God forbid if you miss a little thing and the customers will give you a bad rating which means less pay. The market is saturated and that makes it hard to find consistent jobs. But when you do its not guaranteed you will keep that job due to cancellations last minute. Last thing is some customers are not home so you would most likely not see a tip.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your workers more, give them more time to do a good deep cleaning job, and don't make it so complicated to move up in the company.
