At Instawork, we believe it is important to recognize hard-working, high-quality professionals. So we created the Instawork Top Pro program to reward Instawork Professionals for a job well done.
Each month, professionals earn rewards that will be given out the following month. You can earn rewards like cash bonuses, priority access to shifts, and 3% extra pay on select shifts by working the required number of shifts and maintaining a high level of performance.
Below you will find a breakdown of the rewards and an FAQ section to answer more questions. Good luck becoming a Top Pro!
Requirements & Rewards
Below is a full breakdown of the levels, requirements, and rewards.
Top Pro Level
How close am I to rewards?

From there you'll be able to see your relevant qualifications and learn more about the program.
What rewards do I have this month?
To see how close you are to rewards you can visit the Top Pro screen in the app by first clicking on the "Earnings" tab and then the "Instawork Top Pros" card. Once on the Top Pro screen, you can scroll down to see the rewards you are receiving for this month.
Q: How does the Top Pro program work? How do I earn rewards?
The work you do each month determines your Top Pro level in the following month. For example, if you work 3 shifts in September without any late cancellations or “no-shows,” you would earn the Silver Level rewards starting on October 1st.
Q: Is the Top Pro program free?
Yes, Instawork Gold is a free program provided by Instawork. You don’t have to pay anything to be part of the program. All you have to do is meet the requirements above.
Q: Can I invite friends to become an Instawork Top Pro?
You can invite as many friends and coworkers to join Instawork! In order to become an Instawork Top Pro, everyone must meet the program criteria above.
Q: Why didn’t my level update at the beginning of the month?
On the 1st of the month, all professionals should receive their new level. You can check your work activity in the last month against the qualifications to see why you received a certain level. If you believe you received the wrong level, please get in touch with support.
Q: Can I earn the Platinum cash bonus every month?
Yes! The $100 bonus for earning the Platinum level can be earned each month you qualify.
Q: When will the Top Pro program start?
The new system will begin on September 1st using your activity from August. Pros who had earned Gold under the previous system will be granted Gold Level for September no matter their activity in August.
Q: Why didn’t I receive the correct level based on the number of shifts I worked?
Your number of shifts worked is not the only requirement for earning a level. You can look at the full qualification criteria for each reward level in our help docs.
Q: When do I receive the rewards for my Top Pro level?
You begin getting the benefits for your level at the start of the month based on your work during the previous month. The cash bonuses are usually awarded within 1-2 weeks after the start of the month. The welcome pack reward and prize drawings are shipped after filling out the prize claim form sent to eligible professionals. And all other benefits start on the 1st of the month.
Q: I was an Instawork Gold Status pro for a long time. What does this new system mean for me?
Instawork Gold pros will be awarded the Gold Level for September 2021 no matter their work activity for the previous month (August 2021). After that, all pros will earn a Top Pro level every month based on the last month’s work activity.
Q: I have to cancel a shift. What does this mean for my Top Pro level?
Your Top Pro level for the current month will be unaffected by the cancellation, but your eligibility for next month’s levels might be impacted. If the cancellation was a “late cancellation,” which is a cancellation within 24 hours of the shift start time, you would not be able to earn any rewards for the following month. All reward levels require no late cancellations to qualify.
Q: I was a no-show at a shift. What does this mean for my Top Pro level?
Your Top Pro level for the current month will be unaffected by the cancellation, but you are no longer eligible to earn rewards next month. You can still apply for and work shifts this month, but you will not be able to earn a Top Pro level for next month.
Q: What qualifies as a “late cancellation”?
A late cancellation is a cancellation within 24 hours of a shift start time.
Q: What qualifies as a “no show”?
A “no show” is when a professional confirmed a shift, did not cancel, and then did not show up to work the shift.
