“Shift Shopping” is the ability to view different shifts from a variety of employers and locations, find the right one that fits your skill set and calendar, and instantly apply to work those shifts.

It’s different from traditional job hunting. Employers who post on the Evolia are looking for flexible staffing options to fill part-time or full-time shifts in their business.

“Shift Shopping” ultimately gives you, the employee, more freedom and flexibility when it comes to designing how you work and where. Welcome to the new world of work and management.


How to Go Shift Shopping

Step 1: ‘Shop for shifts’ that match your location and skillset

Evolia allows you to view jobs by company and location to find the perfect fit for your skill set and where you live. Navigate the job board by clicking on shifts to view more information, zoom in and out to find other shifts in different locations and apply in seconds. 

Step 2: Set up your account on Evolia

Once you’ve found shifts you’ll apply for, setting up your account takes seconds.

Click on the shift you’re interested in and hit “Log in to show your interest”. From there, you can set up your account, providing basic information like your name, phone number and postal code. Or simply create a profile here.

Step 3: Apply in a click of a button

Avoid the annoying process of filing out hundreds of information boxes on various application sites. No need to input your resume into a job portal 3 times to apply for a single position. Sound familiar? 

With Evolia, once you create your account, upload your resume, provide any other relevant information and submit your application. Easy.

Say goodbye to the days of endless form-filling and resume uploads. With Evolia, it’s a breeze!

After the application for the shifts and job is submitted, you’ll receive a notification that the employer has received your documents and will review them. From there, you can peruse the map for more jobs to apply to or wait to hear back from the application you just submitted.

Step 4: View All Applications In Once Central Location

As you continue applying for shifts, it’s easy for you to view all the applications you’ve sent over. We all know that when looking for new shifts and jobs, applying to several places is the best way to line up interviews. Now you can easily view all the applications you sent over in one central location. 

Simply head over to the top right corner of the map where your name and account is. Click “My Applications” on the drop down to head to your profile and applications page. From there you can view each application you’ve sent, the day it was sent and other information about the job.

Why your business needs to be on Evolia

The Old Way of Recruiting Employees

Picture this… You’re a manager reviewing your upcoming quarter, ensuring you’re fully staffed in order to provide a great customer experience for your retail outlets.  

You notice that you have several staff members that will be reducing their availability in order to coordinate other demands in life. This in turn will cause several retail outlets to be short-staffed. Oh no! 

Typically as a manager, you’ll update the role job description and get posting on online job boards or even post physical signage in your storefront windows. Then wait for applications, conduct interviews, then finally hire and onboard the right employee. 

What a long and tedious process…
