Sean has recently graduated as a licensed massage therapist. Outside of massage therapy, Sean practices art and plays music. He has been working with neu for over year. Recently, we sat down with him to get some insight into why he chooses to use neu.
Here’s what he had to say:
Sean, do you remember how you first learned about neu?
Yes, I do. I saw an ad on Craigslist actually. I was looking for a job and joined neu to do part-time work while I was in school.
So then was the reason for wanting to work with neu due to needing a part-time job?
Well, I just needed some work, yes. But it just seemed like it was too good to be true for a bit. It just paid so much better than most gigs do and I just liked the nature of the work. I like to work alone when I can and it just checked off all my favorite boxes.
Since joining, what are the things that you’ve appreciated most?
I like the nature of the work. I like the incremental, give or take fifteen-minute jobs that [let] me get in my car and go drive somewhere to the next one and have kind of a short mental break and then do it all over again. I also like making my own schedule, I like not working during the day and night, so that’s nice. It’s nice that there’s a support team when something goes awry, you’re not just stranded out there at one in the morning. Having a line of communication is super important because there definitely have been many times where things are a disaster.
How would you describe neu to someone who has never heard of us before?
It’s a platform that I interact with that distributes work to me. It’s a platform where I am treated and respected [as] a customer but I can also find customers for my business.
What would you say to someone looking to use neu?
Oh, well I have recommended neu to a few people when I was in school since it seemed like the perfect job to have. I just kept telling people, “I work for this really great start-up that does cleans for Airbnb’s and you can make your own schedule. It pays out super well, you get to drive around a little bit and you really can’t go wrong especially while you’re in school. The downside is that there’s kind of [a] limited amount of work but it’s super flexible and cool.
