On-demand shift work, flexible work & staffing solutions

Snag Work is an on-demand platform that instantly connects workers with open shifts in restaurants, hotels, and retail storefronts. We provide workers the hours and flexibility they need to live fulfilling lives while helping businesses eliminate headaches related to turnover, callouts, and surges in demand.

On-demand hourly shift work helping connect local businesses with workers who are ready to clock in—we call them Snaggers.

Businesses request a shift. Snaggers claim and work the shift. Job done.

Here’s what we do and how it all works

For Workers

Snag shifts when & where you want to work

Set your availability and receive notifications when a new shift is requested that matches when you want to work. Check it out and Snag that shift if you want it—or don’t, it’s all up to you.

Clock in, cash out

Clock in knowing where to go,  what to wear, and what to do. Work your shift and head home – it’s that easy! You’ll be paid within two business days after your hours are confirmed.

Live. Work. Play. In whatever order you want

Change your availability as needed, continue to pick up shifts when you want them. Make the most of your time and be in complete control of your potential with Snag.

For Businesses

The right worker for the right job

Call outs, special events requiring additional staff, or seasonal surges, Snag can help you get the hourly shift workers you need –fast!

Save time, reduce overhead costs

Snag is fully insured, and we minimize your policy risk: no overtime, ACA, or workers’ comp costs for you to balance. We perform background checks and match workers to your shifts to ensure quality.

No commitments, no minimums, all flexibility

Pricing is simple. Hourly wage rate plus a % service fee. Snag charges a consistent service fee as a percentage on top of worker wages. Pay for each hour you need, no upfront commitments required.


Business managers request shifts. Snaggers claim and work shifts.

Job done—it’s that simple.

Instant shift alerts

Shifts posted by our business partners are shared with matched and available Snaggers. The average shift is filled in just a few minutes!

Shifts claimed & worked

After a Snagger reviews shift details, including uniform and basic requirements, they can claim the shift and get to work knowing they are prepared.

Better shifts, not worse

When shifts are complete the manager and Snagger both provide feedback – so we can continue to match the best Snagger to each shift and position.

Snag is revolutionizing the traditional employer-employee relationship by giving everyone more flexibility, transparency, and control. The result: More shifts filled by top notch workers at quality brands.

I’ve been offered traditional, scheduled jobs since I’ve been snagging and I’ll never go back. I’ll never work for anybody again if I can help it. Picking up shifts with Snag is what makes the rest of my life possible.

Snagger, 100+ shifts worked

We wouldn’t have been able to open our new store if it weren’t for the help of Snag. Every Snagger that has come to our store has been terrific and we can’t say enough great things about them.

Where has Snag been all my life? Today was a monster success. The two Snaggers we had were on site were absolutely awesome. Our team here raved about them and we can’t wait to request more shifts!

Patton G.

Owner, Thrivident

I pick up 3 or more shifts each week with Snag and am consistantly earning what I need to meet my goals. And I maintain the flexibility to study or take a day off when I want with no questions asked or set schedule to live my life around. I just love being a Snagger!

This is where it all started and where local businesses and workers have been snagging since April of 2017. With over 100 businesses signed on and thousands of shifts filled in the first year we continue to evolve and test our service features here first.
