I went grocery shopping yesterday at Whole Foods. Usually at 2 PM on a weekday, it’s a ghost town, but not during Thanksgiving week. I actually like grocery shopping, so it was fun to be a part of the madness, but I know a lot of people who hate it. Some use services like Fresh Direct or Peapod. I tried the latter once, but it feels like your groceries were picked out by a robot. That won’t cut it if you’re buying meat or produce. Instacart offers a different kind of grocery delivery service. They are a San Francisco, CA based startup that offers personal grocery shopping in a growing number of markets (Chicago and Bay Area right now), and sometimes they can get you your groceries within an hour.

Special Delivery

The difference between Instacart and other grocery delivery services is that Instacart uses personal shoppers. These are contractors who are paid a commission plus tips for doing your shopping for you. They aren’t some drone who is paid an hourly wage to pack boxes full of groceries. I’m not sure how much that affects the end result, but you have to think that you’ll be much happier if you’re ordering things like peaches and avocados. Being a shopper is one option for a new or recent grad. It may not be the best career path, but it will help pay the bills. The better options are on Instacart’s Careers page. Right now they’re looking for an Operations Associate (Chicago), a Customer Happiness Team Member, a Ruby/Rails Engineer, an iOS Engineer, an Android Engineer, a UI/UX & Visual Designer, an Operations Manager, and a City Launcher.
