Do Pros bid on projects?
No. We ask Organizations to estimate a non-binding, preliminary hourly rate. We believe this is crucial to attracting the best Pro for your project, rather than focusing on price first and quality second.
Instead of traditional bidding, we give Pros the option to provide counter offers along with their applications if they wish to propose a higher hourly rate than what is posted. It is always up to the Organizations if they accept the proposed counter offer or negotiate on a fair price.
When the Organization selects the Pro for the role on SpareHire, the final gross hourly rate is entered into the system.
