Frequently Asked Questions
How much do I get paid?
All post secondary students will earn $20 per hour for their work through GigItUp!
How do I get paid?
GigItUp will make a direct deposit to your bank account twice per month.
How are workers protected?
GigItUp prioritizes worker safety. Employers are the primary people responsible for safety on their job site, and this is reflected in our contracts with them. However: we absolutely support the right of workers to refuse work that they are unqualified, underequipped, or uncomfortable in doing.
Even when everyone is being safe, accidents can still happen. All GigItUp workers are covered by GigItUp’s liability insurance and WCB plan.
Do I have to accept gigs?
You can choose the gigs that work for you. However: the more gigs you accept, the more you will be offered in the future.
You should ONLY accept gigs you are 100% prepared to work, as failing to show up will significantly impact your reputation!
When you do take gigs, show up and work hard, and your reputation and pay will grow!
Is GigItUp a local company?
GigItUp has always been oriented toward local businesses and the people who give them life. GigItUp was founded by three guys from Grande Prairie, Alberta to help people find work through the pandemic. We’re excited to still be around and growing.
Wherever GigItUp is available, our focus and value propositions as a company all aim at strengthening and supporting local people on each side of the employment equation!
I want to work full-time. Can I do that?
Our platform prioritises workers who work the most. Be sure to accept as many gigs as possible. As you build a profile, you’ll be presented with longer term gigs that create full-time work.
If you want full-time work right now, our sister company is hiring full-time workers in the oilfield. Call the GigItUp main number on this page and give you information about working for Yak Energy Services.
I want to work part-time. Can I do that?
There is no minimum requirement for how often you work. However, more gigs will be offered to those who accept them frequently.
