Here’s the difference between a shift and a job:
- A job is the term used for the collection of information a Business Partner posts to the Jobble platform. This includes job details such as the location, job type, job description and individual shifts.
- A shift is each individual period of time worked within a job.
- When you are hired to a job, you are expected to work every shift within that job post.
So what does that mean? We will use this example job:
- A job can be posted for 5 days from September 1 to September 5.
- That job has five shifts: September 1; September 2; September 3; September 4; September 5.
When you apply to a job, you are expected to be available to work each shift listed. After being hired, you will be required to confirm each shift 3 days before the shift starts so the managers know you will be at the job site.
Our Example job:
- If you are hired for our “Test: Example Job Title” job, your first shift is September 1 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. You will be asked to confirm that shift 3 days before it starts; you will receive a Confirmation message on August 29.
- The second shift is September 2 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. You will be asked to confirm this shift on August 30.
- You will be asked to confirm each of the 5 shifts in the job.
Even though you are expected to be available to work all shifts when you are hired for a job, this confirmation process helps hiring managers understand if they need to make additional list minute hires.
Our business partners are expected to initiate payment for job within 7 business days (weekdays) from the last shift of the job ending.
Our Example Job:
- The first shift was September 1 and the last shift was September 5. This means that the Payment Processing Timeline begins on September 5.
- Let’s calculate the payment timeline for this shift by counting business days. September 7 is Labor Day, which is a banking holiday, so that does not count as a business day. The payment for your job will be in the Payment Timeline from September 8 to September 16.
- If you do not receive payment by the end of the business day on September 16, then on September 17 you will be able to file a Discrepancy for late payment.
- If you only work some shifts for the job, you will still see your payment processed from the date of the last shift scheduled for the job.
