    I absolutely love working as a Handy Pro. The app is great, so far all the customers have been great, very easy to use and navigate. However, there should definitely be a way to connect with a “Handy Pro” representative on a immediate/emergency basis. For example, I REALLY needed to SPEAK with a “Handy Pro” rep, while I was STILL at the customers home. I checked in, on the “Handy Pro” app, when I got to the house as I always do. I went to the door and there was no answer, I knocked and rang the bell many times. I went back to my car to try calling and messaging the customer. After about 10 minutes of calling, texting and knocking at the door, I finally tried to contact “Handy Pro”. I’ve never had this happen before and didn’t know what to do. I drove 1 HOUR AND 45 MINS to get to this job and it was another hour and 45 mins to get home. So I didn’t want to just leave and risk not being paid for at least the time that I wasted driving to this job and then back again. Especially when I could’ve been doing a job where the person answered the door. So a way to contact you guys directly in cases like this, would be really helpful for us on the “Handy Pro” service providers end. Thank you

    I am very thankful for the handypro platform it overall works with very few issues.. However it could use some improvements as far as the job listing will refresh and put you back to the beginning and theres problems with push notifications they don't always direct you to the jobs you will end up waiting forever at a loading screen

    Thanks Handy for the new app, it’s for sure going to be easier to explain to people who I refer how to download it now 😂.. makes all of our lives easier and you already know us pros are busy people. Thank you for this service, you have gotten me out of working for a place I didn’t like and I’ve made more than I ever did there but with a flexible schedule! Not to mention you have given me an opportunity to meet some really amazing people. It’s awesome to go to work, and have people be so happy and thankful to have you there. Thanks Handy!

    Working for the Handy App is very easy and efficient getting paid is also not a problem. The job description is really detailed with no surprises, the customer's are also very mindful and respect the CDC guidelines by staying 6 feet away and stay in another room allowing you to focus on the task that you were assigned to do, whenever i need to earn a quick honest buck i go to the Handy App.

    Available for listed however many are a considerable distance from my location. Jobs do not pay as much as they should in comparison to how much the customer pays for the services. More of the money paid for the service should be paid to the person completing the work.

  • it's not professional Nov 10, 2020

    By mrsjlp
    They do not trust the Pro, I have a bad experience since I did a full day job and then they tell me that customer canceled the job in the morning when that is not true I have sent them proof of the work done through email, with photos of the work and hours and they still do not believe you they do not support the worker at any time and now they want to charge me for the work I did, I find it shameful that one is honest and does their job and has to be going through bad times without reason and without asking me to me directly if there was a problem !! I was able to contact the customer and the customer was as impressed as I was and the customer himself contacted them to explain that I did my job and that he was at work all day and they don't care they just care to stay with the money!! I put my car, gasoline, tools and my work and they, without doing anything, keep 70% of the earnings from work without doing anything and then they don't even support you and when you have a problem you can only contact by email ... There have been times that I have driven 1 hour to the customer's house and the customer has wanted to cancel the work because it cannot be done or because the product did not arrive and Handy pays you only $ 15 and also they do not have a contact phone number.

  • Horrible System - doesn’t care for workers Nov 21, 2020

    By Kkearron16
    Do not use this app. When I started working for handy my first job was 6 hours and I was surprised when I was only compensated for two. I was told that unless the customer adds time then I wouldn’t not be paid and thanks for the hard work. I reach out to customer of course to no reply. I then followed there method and still had trouble being compensated on further moves either because customers claim to have trouble with app or not actually having the app at all. Some customers set up appointments from where they bought furniture or what they need assembled not through handy this is something else I was unaware. So customer do not have handy number and neither do we as workers as it is all through email. This more than likely leads to customers never contacting handy to tell them you worked past the time. Handy tells you to leave when the time is up if customers don’t add time but then you get a bad rating in review. I had all five stars until I left a job cause a customer told me they didn’t know how to add time and received a one star review. On top of that I was charged 40$ when I needed to cancel a move one time. So basically they will charge for having to cancel but won’t compensate you for your actual work.

  • Horrible Dec 11, 2020

    By treejohnson
    This company does not care for their workers. I went to a job that was labeled organizing garage. When I showed up it was a junk hauling job, not an organizing job. They had things that need 4 ppl to carry out and put in a dumpster. I have a truck and couldn't take their junk. I offered to stay and clean up and organize as that's what the job was supposed to be. They said no we will cancel the service. I spent an hour out of my day driving 50 miles for this job that got canceled after I was there and already started. For canceling after I started I should have gotten the full amount according to handys agreement. But I got 15 dollars for my time and gas. I lost money. Also there is no way to call this company they only respond to emails, also unprofessional. I was impressed with the app at first but once I'm losing money working the jobs for someone else's fault for not describing the right job it took a turn for the worse. It's Covid and I got this app to make money for the holidays not lose it. Thanks Handy for making my holidays more stressful.

  • Lacks clarity and honesty, under compensates jobs Nov 17, 2020

    By 84.Arod
    Upon sign up, I received what appeared to be a promising lead, I accepted the job. Handy pro app booked me, then didn’t reveal the details of the work until my account was fully processed. Once the job appeared, the work to be done is hundred if not low thousands in normal electrical work, the app says my profile will receive a negative rating if I cancel it. Further it’s over an hour away from the city I signed up in. I’ll spend half the compensation on fuel just traveling to the job. I submitted a support request to address it and received an automated response that someone would contact me in 3 hours. I’ve been waiting all day without a response. I searched the frequently asked questions, and only determined that if I cancel early there’s no fee, but when I try and cancel it warns of a negative impact to my rating. This particular job should cost nearly 5-10x the amount offered, depending on situation on site. No way I would waste my time otherwise, I may remain independent if it isn’t resolved.

    Hi, I'm not pleased at all with how the system is being ran. Artificial intelligence can only go so far and there needs to be someone that is Abel and available to make any necessary adjustments to the contractors pay. If automatic scheduling is being offered poor better chances of making better money, then a radius/ coverage area needs to be offered as well. If I set up automatic booking and I am scheduled for a job that is 4 hours round trip, I or anyone that reads this would not take it.

  • Your paycheck will be what you make it Nov 10, 2020

    By JeremiahEnder
    Handy offers a great platform where professionals are able to employ their skills in solving people’s problems, and in turn, they receive a fair commission. It takes work to keep up a good rating on the platform. If you are unwilling to prioritize the needs of the customer, be accountable to your calendar, and maintain a professional image and attitude, this just may not be for you.

    Pros: quick payment, no excessive/unfair fees, friendly and responsive support staff. Cons: app could be sluggish, available jobs disappear VERY quickly, support team could only be contacted via messaging, also no merchandise available in the Handy Pro store! 😢 Cool app overall, though ♥️, just wish the little glitches could be fixed soon! 🌞

    For the most part, I really enjoy this app. What I don't like is that when you allow for instant booking, you have no control over who or where the booked projects come from. A lot of the jobs that book me, are a 45min drive or more and only paying $25. One issue I've come across is that I have a booking that ends at 1030am 45 min from my house, then booked at 1100 am 45 min from my house in the opposite direction. There is no accounting for drive time.

    Great app to make extra money but beware Pro worker service and contact is extremely difficult. No phone number or live person to talk to so it's hard to explain the problem. Only email which is slow and ineffective they need to create some kind of way to talk with staff in case of issues arising. Over all good tho.

    It is great if you have a background in construction background or ur handy. Just don't stay past the time, because u will NOT get paid for it, even if it is wayfair or walmart. They're supposed to pay differently for those jobs. I watched a customer send an email to handy & I still didn't receive compensation. I have lost probably $200 or more from staying past the time I was given. Now if you are late you should stay however many hours you are given + whatever you were late.

  • Handy pro app review Nov 20, 2020

    By Mama Rego
    This app has supported me in getting jobs when I couldn’t round them up myself. Pro support isn’t as great as I would like due to they charge fees for everything. I have had customers that no showed and did not communicate; meaning no response to calls or texts or locked gates. I have been charged the full amount I was paid due to leaving early when a customer never responded. I am charged a fee even during covid for canceling in too short of notice even though handy highly recommended to cancel if I wasn’t feeling well. You are paid for the time customer and handy bid and don’t get the extra pay unless customer calls it in. And like today customer had very little room to work in and I spent time moving furniture around. So it’s defined got its pros and cons. Overall I say it’s worth it. Just be aware at all times of what is going on.

  • A great app but terrible technical support Dec 15, 2020

    By davidhu7
    In the time I worked with you I have seen the evolution of the app and it has been great. But the technical support has never improved, it is extremely bad. I would like to give two positive tips to improve the app and the administration of this one. 1) I often talk to the client before (one day before) and agree with him to do the work at that time, so my schedule is clean for the other day but in the app there is a job pending, and so it does not let me grab new jobs at that time (Please put completed job button). 2) it would be I often stay more time with the client to finish the work (I never like to leave it started) but many of those times they don't pay me the time (handy says he communicates with the client) but it seems that they never did it. There may be many tricks that can be put in the app and that I have been finding. I am a software developer for more than 10 years and I am testing the app as I work with it. Generally, this great congratulations. Please change your professional care policies because we are the ones who keep this business up and running. Thank you!!!

    For the most part, Handy is ok. They don't pay their providers enough compared to what they charge the customers, however as a provider, you have the choice to not claim the jobs. Pay attention to their policies and don't let them pull anything fast on you because there have been times they haven't paid fairly, but its in their policy when you claim the job. Dont expect them to give you extra. Were all in business to make money.

    Just got no pay for a job I worked 4 hours on. I have no idea why these no explanation on why. Not the first time this has happened to me. And its impossible for us workers to contact someone on a support team. Except by an email to add a job number and a long explanation on what happened. I've tried this before and never heard from anyone til this day. But on a good note when I do get paid it's always in a timely manner. I just take the good with the bad. But im not liking to work for free

  • Handy does not care if you are safe! Nov 18, 2020

    By BrvndonBlvck
    Handy has placed me with anti-maskers, in the middle of a pandemic. Not only have I had to work with anti-maskers, I have also had several customers that were, as well. I have struggled to contact Handy, time after time. The only thing they have done is make it so I don’t work with said Handy Pros and customers, again. There is very little work. Jobs are rarely as described. I went to replace a faucet and I arrived to the customer wanting me to replace a toilet drain. I have driven 30 minutes to a job and did not get paid for my time, as the customer did not say I needed to bring an upholstery cleaner, in the job description.

  • Stay Away Dec 8, 2020

    By losingmyass
    This is a horrible company to work with. First off they charge a customer $80 per hour and you get $20. The customer chooses how many hours a project should take, so the amount of time it takes is always wrong, when you tell the customer it’s gonna take twice as long and you need to charge extra they get mad at you and mostly don’t pay. So now you’re making $10 per hour plus the drive time. Their support for you doesn’t exist, you can send an email and you’re lucky if they reply. You can’t connect with a customer to ask questions until after you accept the job, if it turns the job is not what you expected and decide to turn down job Handy usually fines you. The date and time is already determined so trying to create an efficient schedule is nearly impossible. By time you get there to do a job the customer has been rescheduled on, sometimes twice. This is a horrible company , for crap pay with no support. Stay away
