  • From an honest handy man Mar 18, 2021

    By dhjakalwolwkwlmcndusnwjkwopd
    Hey y’all, So I’ve been using this app for probably 5-6 months now. All honesty it’s the simplest handyman app out there. Nothing quite competes. You know what you’re getting paid for the jobs. You know what the job is. Best thing is you get free direct deposit same day with no charge for the time being. There’s also these quests that give you extra money that pop up every so often. Worst thing about the app in my opinion is the job description for the quote “handyman” jobs. Or jobs from other apps like home advisor. They lack on telling you what exactly you’ll be doing. My recommendation for the app makers is to allow customers to add photos to the job so the professional knows what equipment is needed for the job.

    The app is not bad at all. Waiting for a response if your not working on a job in that moment can be a slightly irritating process. I would like to speak to a LIVE representative. They dont have that That's Annoying! But they do respond to ALL through email. They also give you clients that are FAR AWAY and unrealistic to meet. Most of mine are In PENNSYLVANIA. I live in AKRON. I have complained they say as long as it's a 100 miles, but it superceded. But I do enjoy my work & the people.

    The app is a great idea. I love it when it functions properly. I had some tech issues and I contacted Handy for assistance. I got the same scripted response from each person. They badically called me a liar saying " we can see your movement on the app" then charged me cancellation fees of 120 for their errors. My acceptance rating went down as well. So much I might as well hang up the app. 😭😭

    This is a great app! There is a lot of room for growth. I would love to see a better scheduling system. For example let's say there are two jobs scheduled for 9am - 12am and both customers expressed they have flexibility with their booking. We should be able to set the date and time that way we could take both jobs and fill our schedules. Some days I can only do one job because of the way the time is blocked out. Can't say more text limited.

    This app would be great with a few changes. 1. Pay contractors in line with what was actually charged. **2. Give contractors more control over their schedule, and make rescheduling easier. This app will stop you from scheduling jobs IT thinks will conflict by making them disappear from the claim tab, and only customers can reschedule, which can make you miss out on a lot of jobs. ** 3. Let contractors set a max commute time or mile radius. 4. Integrate a multi-day project/repair feature.

    This is a great idea, but it falls short in execution. It dies not do what it says it does, which is oair you with jobs you want to do - it doesn't even describe the job most of the time. I'm supposed to agree to a 3 hour scheduled job for $75 that just says "Handyman Service", but no soecifics? I don't think so. Then you have the fees and penalties....If you leave a job "early" you get penalized, but yiu aren't the one setting the hours for the work...we call that a racket.

  • 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.

  • 4.6 STARS? Apr 5, 2021

    By gregliv904
    I just filled out they’re application and downloaded the app. I haven’t opened the app to actually get started yet. Typically I like to read and check the reviews on apps. Especially if they’re claim to have 4.6 / 5.0 stars. But strangely enough 36 out of 40 reviews I read were all extremely bad. These are reviews of workers not of people looking to have work completed. It’s truly sad. I’m a licensed electrician and I work full time so thankfully I don’t need this app or their scams of service. I honestly was just looking to do a few side jobs on the weekends but after reading these bad reviews I want nothing to do with them. And almost feel like letting my cousin who’s a news anchor at local news station know about this. It’s truly a scam and taking time and money from workers. Everything I’ve read clearly shows that their only in it for the money. Having no number or direct line for the workers to contact just goes to show that it’s just a few people who had extra funds and created a platform app to further deepen their pockets. You should feel ashamed of yourself. This makes me extremely upset after hearing all these horrible experiences. Sure people lie on reviews, that can be expected but 36 out of 40. Someone seriously needs to investigate them. I’ll be sure to report them to the BBB.

  • 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.

  • Great idea, Poor execution. Feb 7, 2021

    By NolaDad504
    I love the idea of this app, and being able to claim your jobs to assist with your schedule. Well I myself am from a big city and jobs weren’t available on this app for long. If you aren’t watching your phone constantly for a job to pop up, chances are somebody else will claim it first. So after a few days of trying to find jobs to claim I was finally fast enough to claim my first one. Excited that I finally have my first job to go do on Monday morning I make note of it on my personal schedule for that day. Well Saturday night before I worked security gig overnight for a friend. Got in early Sunday morning and went to sleep. I wake up to 2 notifications. One was a request to confirm my job again for Monday, that I had already confirmed and then 3 hours late another text saying my job was removed because I didn’t respond. So after stalking this app for 2 days trying to be fast enough to get a job claimed, it gets removed on me while I’m sleeping the day before it’s scheduled to be completed?! Oh and you do get penalized with fees for cancellation of claimed jobs. So just a heads up to those interested in this app.

    Don't buy into the bad reviews. This app has been wonderful so far. (5 months) A great side gig (or possibly full time if you are dedicated and flexible enough.) Payments are always on time and in full. Pricing is very fair, and you are not required to take any jobs that you don't want. Customers are usually well informed and pleasant to work with. If you are a handyman or enjoy cleaning and like to get paid for your work, Handy is great! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    By tstar77
    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!

    Android user here, I haven't experienced any problems. The only issue I have is that as a cleaner, some homes are actually WAY smaller then when you arrive. So you don't get paid fairly. There is no option to change or take pictures to show proof. Overall, user friendly app. I get paid on time, no issues.

  • HANDY HAS GROWN UP . Apr 2, 2021

    By @951Woodwork
    I’ve taken some time away from handy for several months. Today I completed a task to complete a quest, to get a extra $75 bonus. Things were smooth and back to her normal operations except for the Covid and staying sanitized. I’ll be continuing my services with Handy until I feel they start taking advantage of me and rip me off. If you are considering becoming a handy pro please use my link in the description.

    It seems to be a pretty decent app to make extra cash. The only downside is if you have an issue there is absolutely no way to contact someone in customer service other than email and sometimes it takes up to a week for them to get back to you. Plus you also have to get use to the fact that you only get paid a 1/4 to 1/3 of what the customer is actually paying to have the service done. Handy keeps the rest. So if you make $50 then handy made $150

    Cautiously optimistic. I have been using the app for just under a month now and have enjoyed the different jobs. The one no show I had they still paid me for. So far so good. Wish they had more local jobs, a 100 mile radius is too general. More specific search parameters would be beneficial.

    The concept of this app is awesome! If you follow all procedures as you should everything works out in the end. I've done over 60 jobs now through the Handy app and all jobs are paid and up-to-date. I've had my issues several times with the Handy team and everything was taken care of in the end. BUT you have to be VERY persistent with them! I've spent hours emailing back and forth to get certain situations taken care of. Just know that hours of emailing will be involved with these jobs, HOURS!

    Signed up 3 weeks ago. Still waiting in the application process. Either they don't worry about new people anymore or they are just no longer running the app. Complete waste of time, energy, and my patience. I am uninstalling the app and being honest to anyone who should ask about it. I wouldn't install it. Only reason I gave 3 stars and not 1 is because the app has obliviously had a lot of time and work put into it.

    At first I loved this service however i become very frustrated with not being able to reach someone with Handy in real time they have no pro suppourt phone number. One other issue is sometimes the given distance can be off by 15-20 miles and if you dont realize before you claim it they penalize you for unclaiming. All in all it is a very helpful way for a small business to fill downtime just wish you could reach a human via phone.

    It can be great for some jobs, but lately I've heard from customers that handy takes a huge cut. One customer was charged 530 dollars for a job that I made 130 on, another I made 50 on a job, and my customer was charged 200. I'd figure that the cut would work the other way around, with the pro getting the bulk, and the app getting the lesser of the pay. When contacting customer service about this, they say that they have "expenses" to pay. Like seriously lol

  • Overall bad Mar 13, 2021

    By prestongs
    App is okay when it works. However, it’s a horrible app/company overall. I have a 4.8/5 star rating out of 168 completed jobs on the app for reference. Job descriptions are written mainly by people who don’t speak English, so words/sentences/addresses sometimes don’t make sense or lacks much needed information. Whenever you dispute a fee or have a complaint, customer support responds with a prewritten email usually telling you their policies and a poor excuse to why they did what they did. A lot of the times they don’t even address your problem! I have many emails of them apologizing admitting their mistake. Which they do pretty often. You have to be persistent (take pictures of each job/messages/map location/EVERYTHING, even if you don’t have problems, you might later on... it helps when you present evidence to them) otherwise they will not give you a second thought. This is what irritates me the most. The unprofessional, untrained customer support. They take about 30-50% of what the customer is paying initially depending on the job. I understand they need to make money but 50%? By god! Having said all that, I still choose to accept and complete jobs because it’s a good way to meet clients. Get a business card and offer your services directly after each job. Great app concept, poorly run company.

  • Pay rate Feb 19, 2021

    By haggkekrkr
    The pay rate is unfair specially when I’ve been working for handy for 4plus years. Walmart employees make more than a handy cleaner. I moved from west palm beach to Tampa and my pay rate went from 15 to 12hr. Handy doesn’t supply any products and doesn’t pay for gas. Pay should be based on performance and how many years of experience. I found my own clients that are paying me 20 to 25hr. The customers cancel within 24hrs I don’t receive a dime but if I need to cancel I get charged a fee. They don’t charge to cash out anymore which is nice. Fees and pay rates need improvement. Please screenshot check ins and check outs, msgs from customers if you’re currently working for handy it will help if there are any issues with payment.

  • Be careful( updated at bottom DO NOT TRuST) Apr 1, 2021

    By rsb😊
    I recently used these guys to fill in some time while waiting for a large job to start. I’ve been lucky on most but the descriptions are not satisfactory, I went to one job that was described as sealing a leaky window and it was actually replace a door, interior/exterior trim, remove a window- fram around in, install new window. Most recently I went to hang a tv on my day off. I could not get into the customers unit and followed the instructions on the app to the letter. They later tried to send me a fee for missing a job. After way too much time trying to reach someone, the arguing, they agreed to remove the fee but then also removed my pay claiming I was 4 min late on. A job I am certain I was 12 min early. They basically told me that I was late because they said so(all the digital proof on my app conveniently had been removed). A couple odd jobs would consider them but if you’re looking for regular work you’d be better off on your own.... UPDATE. After arguing for the money they owe me. They started sending me missed job reports for jobs I didn’t schedule. And adding fees for missing jobs that didn’t exist!

  • 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.
