GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - Later this month, several Meijer locations in West Michigan will start offering grocery delivery in as little as an hour.
But the expansion also includes hundreds of jobs where you can be a professional shopper.
Meijer is partnering with Shipt, a grocery delivery business based out of Alabama. Shipt is currently in the process of hiring about 350 shoppers in the Grand Rapids area.
Working for Shipt is similar to working for Uber. When you want to work, you turn on the app and work for as long as you'd like any day of the week. On average, shoppers make between $17-20 an hour, according to company officials.
If you'd like to shop and deliver groceries for Shipt, you need to pass a background check, have a car that is newer than the year 2000 and be able to lift at least 25 pounds.
Meijer grocery delivery service in Grand Rapids will start March 29. Customers can sign up for deliveries at a cost of $99 a year for free deliveries on all orders greater than $35.
