This is just an example list. Clients can have a wide range of things that they need assistance with. Anything that they need to have done, but don’t want to do it – those are great tasks to pass off to an assistant!

How Much Does Team Delegate Pay?
Team Delegate pays their contractors $15-18 per hour based on experience. You’ll be an independent contractor with a 1099 tax form. This means that you will be responsible for reporting your income based on the tax laws where you live.
Team Delegate Schedule
Your schedule with Team Delegate will depend on the schedule you have set with the clients who you work with. Since they want you to have a Smartphone with email, you’ll possibly be working even when you aren’t working. Be careful with this because it’s hard to say how you will keep track of your hours and if you’ll be compensated for this.
On the application, it appears as though Team Delegate limits work hours to 8 am to 5 pm. So I would consider that the basic hours you would work within.
Team Delegate Feedback
Glassdoor doesn’t have any reviews for Team Delegate. I actually can’t find any job reviews for them. I’ll come back and update if I get hired or have anything else I can add about the process!
