Bellhops creating 100 new jobs for Lexington-area college students

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The “Uber for moving” company, Bellhops, is hoping to field 150 applications from Lexington-area college students.

Bellhops jobs are claimed off a smartphone app similar to the one used by the popular ride-sharing company, Uber. Bellhops contracts college students to work small to medium sized moves, which are booked over the phone or on the Bellhops website.

Once a job is booked, all the bellhops in a given market are notified through their app, and the job can be claimed on a first-come first-served basis. Bellhops are paid between $13 and $15 per hour. All bellhops are background checked, take part in a video interview, and are routinely rated by their bellhop peers as well as customers.

“We are very selective about who is allowed on our job-claiming platform, so that means we need to sort through a large collection of applications to reach our desired market headcount,” said Patterson. “Historically our applicant acceptance rate has been roughly 50%. This allows us to ensure customers that we’re supplying high quality movers to their jobs.”

Currently, students from Ashbury University, Bluegrass Community and Technical College, Georgetown College, and University of Kentucky are claiming Bellhops jobs in Lexington.
