Editor’s Note: The Grubhub position has been filled.
Got the munchies… for a scrumptious work-from-home gig?
Then listen up: Grubhub, the incredibly popular food delivery service, is hiring work-from-home reps.
Here’s what you need to know.
How to Order Up One of These Grubhub Jobs
Grubhub serves 35,000 takeout restaurants in more than 900 U.S. cities, and in this job, your main duty will be taking orders for its many hungry customers. Other duties will include data entry and documentation.
Eligible candidates can live in any state except Arkansas, California, Rhode Island or Oregon.
You’ll earn $10-$11 per hour on a schedule you choose — with a minimum of 20 hours per week on Friday through Tuesday, between 12 p.m. and 12 a.m. (Grubhub’s busiest time).
There’s no cap on the number of hours you can work, but as an independent contractor, you won’t be paid overtime.
That’s right: independent contractor.
Although you’ll work with Grubhub’s customers, you’ll technically be contracted by a third-party call center called NexRep. Based on reviews on Indeed and Glassdoor, this is a legit (and well-liked!) company.
Lastly, before getting paid, you must complete a 30-hour certification. After successfully completing certification and 20 hours of (paid) work, you’ll receive a “certification bonus” of $300. You must also pay $25 for a background check.
NexRep’s president John Stewart says he anticipates hiring “at least 100” people for this position.
These jobs are great for moms, Stewart says, because “you can pop your kids on the bus, work for three hours, do some errands and then work again after they go to bed.”
