UNRELIABLE HELL!! - SCAM -
This whole app is complete hell to deal with. The so called “bacon contacts” (or the people who developed the app and help make it run) are very unreliable and take forever to answer if you have a question or problem. After you complete a job, your account balance gets added to a payment info screen, it says “you’ll receive payments daily” and every time I’ve worked a shift, it’s sat there for at least 4 days and then finally transferred to stipe which takes another 3 days. One company that posts jobs on this app, is a place where a supervisor is very unlikely to be on time. They’ve been 3.5 hours late before, and even though we still did the work and completed the assignment, I was still rated with 1 or 2 stars from the company. Which ultimately blocked my bacon account from applying to any other jobs for “3 days”. But it’s been over 3 days now and it’s not unlocked, nobody from bacon is answering me. SAVE YOUR TIME. Invest in yourself, apply for a real job that looks good on a resume, apply for somewhere that you feel like you can be productive at and make an impact. BACON OR ITS CUSTOMERS ARE NOT THAT PLACE
Good and Bad
I’ve made about $500 from the app since June. My only issue is that if you need to withdrawal from a job it gives no confirmation to the employer. It puts you at risk for being rated low by that employer. One job I worked at 3 people didn’t show and the employer had no cancellation notices from Bacon. I spoke to one of these people and they told me they did put a withdrawal into the app but it never reached the supervisor at the worksite. This has been a known issue since September and it still isn’t fixed. The other critique I have is you will apply for some positions and not be notified if your accepted or not. This can result in lost wages waiting around for a merchant that never confirms your hired. There should be a deadline for the merchants to accept the workers for their time Other than these issues I like the app.
best temp job app!!
I LOVE this app! I recommend it to all my friends. I was working an AWFUL job this last summer and ended up quitting a month before college started back up. I was stressed how I was going to earn enough money to pay tuition, given no where would hire me for only a month. Lo and behold, a friend suggested I try Bacon!! Best decision ever! The app is seriously as good as it sounds; you select a job, show up and work the shift, and get payed! Every company I’ve worked for has been awesome. This app gave me the freedom and money I needed! Even though school has started back up, I still pick up a shift whenever I have a day off! To ANYONE needing some extra cash, freedom, or flexibility- please try bacon!
It’s NOT a scam
I completed a shift on May 20. Still haven’t been paid. Seems like a good idea. Only explore if you enjoy doing manual labor for free. UPDATE: I remember that guy ☝️ so young and naive. It turns out this was bad timing. I signed up and completed a shift right before they implemented Stripe, and all I needed to do to get paid was accept the terms for Stripe. Once I did that I got paid pretty quickly. Changing from a 1-star to a 5-star because the app works and the people that helped me resolve my issue were very nice and helpful.
Seemed like a good idea at the time
You can get suspended for 3 days just for getting a single 2 star rating. This is not a reliable way to make money at all, the employer can essentially blackmail you to do whatever you want because they can stop you from being hired even by OTHER COMPANIES if they give you 2 stars which costs them NOTHING. Absolutely terrible policy on the strikes. Pathetically bad deal for the workers. Additionally the website you’re told to go to to review the training is down because of a cloudflare error. As a web developer myself, the degree to which this move is amateur and unprofessional truly cannot be overstated.
Help me with my bills
I was let off my full time job and came across this app. At first I was unsure but I gave it a try and was surprised to find jobs paying 10 to 14 dollars an hour and is flexible day to day work. This app really helped me before I moved to a different state! Thank you never had an issue with my pay or companies canceling
Actually a very useful app
This actually makes finding work pretty easy. I’ve found several shifts near me, and there are a bunch of different options so it’s not like having a full-time job where you do the same thing every day.
Worked a shift for these guys that was an hour and a half drive from my house. Turns out the employer says I never showed up (even though I clocked in at the job site and the time clock TAKES A PICTURE OF YOU WHEN CLOCKING IN!!!) so they’re refusing to pay me and are suspending me from using the app for 30 days. Horrible horrible app. I suggest just doing day labor at PeopleReady. They pay the same day and don’t try to get free work out of you. Wouldn’t recommend Bacon to anyone, even Wonolo is a better work app
No Contact Info for Employer
I should be able to ask an employer a question about the job before I apply. App has also been crashing recently.
Terrible low paying jobs and they don’t pay your taxes.
If you’re looking for $10/hr jobs this might be good for you. But they don’t pay your taxes at all. As an employee you pay taxes via your pay check. Employees match dollar for dollar the taxes that you pay, but Bacon does not pay taxes on your behalf. Not sure how they get away with it, but they do.
This is a good between-jobs app
His spoils great for finding some jobs to just help bring in a little more needed money
Can’t withdraw from jobs iOS
App will probably be very beneficial once all the cracks get filled! App just crashes after I write a description and push withdraw. Will update rating after this is fixed
Can’t Register!! Worthless
I’ve tried several times to register and it keeps giving me a error message. I’ve tried different days even after updates. Worthless app. Developers please remove this app from the AppStore until it’s fixed and ready to launch. I guess I get what I pay for - it’s free.
Nice people, well organized event, would work this again!
Awesome for finding work!
This app has been an amazing tool to find jobs around me. I have only worked one job on the app so far but it was a great experience and I was paid very quickly. Great job on your app Bacon! Keep it up!

Hi I am just wondering how the back up shifts work. I am assuming it is like being on call for a shift if they need you? If I am right I am just wondering how soon before your shift is supposed to start you will be alerted and told you need to be there so you show up.

This App seems to be limited to the Utah area? Perhaps covering a broader scope that I could find via Google. There’s no way to see before you give all your info...IF THE HAVE anything in your state/region. Nor can you see the entire job board. The ideas great and like most things... I’m sure it takes a while to get the glitches out. Plus toss in a healthy helping of COVID... I might check back later, for now it’s not worth the space on my device.
