Congratulations, you got the job! You must have a couple of questions, but don’t worry. We are here for you. Check out this compilation of our Staffers’ FAQs!


Your first payment will be prorated. On the 15th of each month, Staffers get paid for the pay period that covers from the 16th to the 31st of the previous month. On the 31st day of each month, Staffers receive the pay period that covers from the 1st to the 15th of the month.

E.G. On February 15th Staffers receive the payment for their work from January 16th through January 31st.
