Instacart announced plans to bring on an additional 250,000 full-service shoppers across North America over the next two months to meet the increasing customer demand for online grocery delivery and pickup in the U.S. and Canada.

This hiring spree comes after the company filled nearly 300,000 jobs over the last few weeks.

Apoorva Mehta, the company's founder and CEO, said Instacart is also offering additional support and sick pay for shoppers who may be affected by COVID-19.

Additionally, any full-service or in-store shopper can receive up to 14 days of extended pay if you’re diagnosed with COVID-19 or placed in individual mandatory isolation or quarantine.
