#1Flex FAQ

How do I apply for a shift?

Once you’ve completed your profile – head over to the ‘Explore’ section of the app and browse the available shifts. You can tap on any shifts you’d like to know more about – this will take you into the shift description. Here, you’ll see an ‘Apply’ button in the grey action bar at the top of the screen.

What happens after I've applied?

Your application will go to the hirer for review. It will stay open until the expiry deadline you set when you applied. If you are not hired during this time, your application will expire.

What should I take to my first shift?

Usually just yourself! But it’s always worth double-checking the shift description and uniform requirements to see if you need anything specific!. Other than that, arrive on time and have a great shift!

What should I do once I've been hired?

Congrats! Send a quick message to the hirer to introduce yourself and let them know that you’re excited to work. You can also take this opportunity to ask about unifrom and travel requirements and anything else you’re unsure about!

How do I submit my timesheet?

To find your timesheet, head to ‘My shifts’ and open the relevant shift, here you’ll see a link to your timesheet in the grey action bar at the top of the page. You have 12 hours after the end of the shift* to submit your timesheet. If you do not submit it within this time, it will be submitted automatically, and the times you worked will default to the times stated on the original shift post.

Is it possible to double-book my shifts?

Don’t sweat it! You cannot be hired onto more than one shift with overlapping shift times. If you’ve apply for conflicting shifts when you are hired onto one, your applications for the others will automatically be withdrawn. So you can never be down to work two shifts at the same time.

Why am I not getting hired?

It’s is often difficult to get accepted onto your first shift, because you don’t yet have previous shift ratings on the platform. Once you have started completing shifts, however, it will get a lot easier as hirers will be able to use your rating to assess your suitability for the shifts they post. On average it takes 12 applications to get hired on to your first shift so get back out there and keep going!

What happens if I can no longer attend a shift?

You’ll need to cancel the shift through the app, as well as letting the hirer know. You’ll be prompted to leave a message for the hirer as you go through the process of cancelling in-app, so this is the ideal place to get in touch.
