PUBLISHED BY Steve Johnson / September 1, 2022

It was only a matter of time before an online staffing platform entered the gig economy space, connecting available workers with companies in different industries that need jobs filled. Enter the Wonolo app.

Founded in 2014, there are currently more than 1 million workers across the US on the Wonolo app looking to find jobs that enable them to gain experience, up-level their job skills, work in different industries, and more!

What is Wonolo app?

Wonolo app is a streamlined version of the old temporary service staffing industry. A new on-demand staffing platform that helps connect independent contractors with jobs across the country, or in their own neighborhoods. This is the new way for workers that are looking for anything from short-term jobs to extra income or to build skills in different industries. With flexible daily and hourly shifts to choose from and career building opportunities relevant to the jobs of today, Wonolo is the marketplace for the future of work.

Transparency is a must in today’s gig economy.  Unlike temp agencies that require appointments, interviews, and applications often to be completed in a brick and mortar location, Wonolo’s mobile app makes it easy for workers to find jobs, get paid, and keep their independence.  

Workers have the flexibility within the Wonolo app to accept jobs wherever and whenever they want to work.  In addition, workers using the Wonolo app can find jobs, up-level job skills, and even discover new industries. The Wonolo app offers opportunities ranging from warehouse, delivery, and merchandising, to event staffing and admin roles.

Where is Wonolo app available?

Wonolo is currently available in 27 cities across the US and is rapidly expanding to new markets. Just enter your city into the app and see the jobs offered in your area. 

You can even accept some jobs weeks in advance as some businesses are looking to fill positions for future dates, especially if you’re looking for ways to make extra money for the holidays.

Wonolo app seems to be very popular with people looking to target specific industry work, while also allowing workers the ability to advance their skill set.  When comparing Wonolo app to the days of ‘Temp Agencies’ it has all of the advantages without some of the time consuming hurdles.  No more resumes.  No more interviews.  Wonolo makes the world of work simple.
