Task360 – My First Job
As you can see from my Task360 Diary I got my first job pretty much straight away. It was a nice an easy sounding job – head to a Tesco Superstore and audit their nappy selection. The app shows you where the jobs are via a map interface – this makes it so much easier to work out whether you can actually do/get to the job without having to go into each one separately. The job is only for £7 so after tax is taken I’ll be left with about a fiver. Not life changing amounts but certainly will help, especially if I can get a couple of jobs in the same area on the same day.
The only challenge here is that the job had a tight time-deadline. Luckily for me it was close enough that the deadline wasn’t a problem. Before you request the task you are given a brief description and it said I’d have about 20 questions to answer. Accepting the task then gave me a timer to tell me how long I had to complete the task. For some reason it gave more more time than the deadline however I wasn’t going to risk it!
Within 10 minutes I had finished the job. When you are doing the task, the app takes you to a list of questions/tasks that you go into. For most of this job the tasks were simple ‘yes/no’ answers. Out of all the questions I could answer ‘yes’ to all of them. The one I couldn’t answer ‘yes’ to was due to the product having a different quantity to the one shown in the app. As I was given a picture to compare against, it wasn’t a typo however I did wonder if this was something Task360 do to trip people up and make sure they are checking the right things! The last question of the task was to take a photo of the front of the store. I did this as I left and submitted my time-sheet. Fingers crossed it all goes through cleanly.
For my first task on Task360 I think it was a good one. It shows them my attention to detail and it shows me the sensible way their app is set-up. I will continue to check the app out and take jobs which are local.
