Coming Up Next
This month we’ve put a lot of work into making sure that Bacon workers are being seen and heard! We are excited to announce that since Bacon's latest update, workers now have a new way to communicate with their employers one on one.
This new feature will allow you as a contractor to discuss concerns, problems, and/or comments directly with the employers you work for. We’ve also made it mandatory for companies to put a written review on any 1 or 2 star reviews so that workers know exactly why that rating was given.
We will soon have detailed tutorials available to explain all of our new features, so look out for those updates on our knowledge base website!
We know how important it is to make a legendary first impression here at Bacon. As such, we want to make sure that you have all the information and advice you need to be successful when working new shifts on the Bacon app!
For people who use Bacon, working temporary positions is not typically the "end goal" when it comes to planning their careers. Many of our workers go into jobs hoping to find part or full time positions with companies they like working for.
The great news is that Bacon workers are able to find full time employment with companies they found through our app all the time... making first impressions all the more important!
Here at Bacon we believe that hustle, hard work, and a little elbow grease will always leave a great first impression. If you’re willing to show up on time, work hard, and come prepared, you’ll never fail to make an impression on your employers!
You can make sure you’re always prepared for your shifts by reading the shift description carefully and making sure you reach out to your supervisor if you have any questions before, during, or after your shift!
If we had to choose we've received more than any other this month, it would be the following:
In order to make sure you’re seeing all the shifts in your area (and figure out why you may not be seeing certain shifts near you!), try the following three things:
1. Adjust your filters
Sometimes applying too many filters will hide shifts in your area that you may want to see. To avoid this issue, make sure you don’t have too many filters applied on the app. You can also try clearing your filters completely to see what shifts are available!
2. Understand that some shifts will only be shown to a few chosen workers
At times, your friends will have shifts that pull up on their phones but won’t show up on yours. This could be because of several different reasons, but the most common reason is that a company may have removed you from their list of workers who can see their posts. Because companies can choose to send shifts to certain lists of workers rather than the general public, you may not be seeing the same shifts as other people.
3. Apply early
There is always a risk that if you don't apply early for shifts, all the shifts near you may get filled by other workers. We know that this can be frustrating, so Bacon has been making a concerted effort to bring on new companies each month. We want to give workers more shifts to choose from! There are new companies posting shifts every day, so continue to check back to see if you can snatch a shift before it disappears.
