TaskRabbit connects people who need errands and other tasks completed with nearby individuals ready to complete such tasks for a fee. The company provides an online platform to facilitate these connections by listing client jobs and available workers on one website. TaskRabbit is an opportunity for home-based entrepreneurs to make money filling a need within their communities for small jobs such as shopping errands, housekeeping projects, office work and other everyday tasks.
A computer and Internet connection are necessary to access TaskRabbit’s platform. You will need to fill out an application as well as complete an interview, a third-party criminal background check and an online training program. Plan to have access to a web camera and microphone for the video interview. During the interview, expect to be asked about your skills and hobbies as well as how TaskRabbit would integrate into your current circumstances and life. TaskRabbit is active in major urban centers in the U.S. and plans to expand further within the U.S and to London, England.
All TaskRabbit workers are independent contractors whose compensation varies depending on the task. Clients specify the fee they are willing to pay for jobs they post, and TaskRabbit workers bid on jobs they wish to complete. For each completed job, TaskRabbit charges the client a service charge in addition to the worker’s fee. Clients also reimburse workers for out-of-pocket expenses their tasks involve. TaskRabbit pays out all earnings above $25 through PayPal or by mailed check on a weekly basis. TaskRabbit workers enjoy a discounted rate from Zipcar when using this company’s car-sharing service to complete tasks.
