It’s a job seeker’s market and employers have to act quickly to meet their staffing needs. But it’s not just about hiring fast—it’s about winning over the best candidates, as well. And that starts by getting to know today’s hourly worker.

Snagajob surveyed more than 2,000 hourly employees to give you an inside look at what drives today’s hourly worker. From the application process to the rise of the gig economy, we covered it all—and what we learned might surprise you.

About the State of the Hourly Worker Report

Since 2000, Snagajob’s mission has been to put people in the right fit-positions so they can maximize their potential and live more fulfilling lives. Now, we’re America’s leading marketplace for hourly work, serving more than 80 million registered job seekers. And it starts by knowing our audience.

That’s why twice a year, we ask hourly workers how they really feel about the issues impacting them the most—from wages to job applications (and everything in between).

The result? Our State of the Hourly Worker report, a compilation of the latest trends, data and insights straight from today’s hourly workers. These findings arm restaurant, retail and hospitality employers with the information they need to attract and retain the best hourly talent in an increasingly competitive landscape.
