Pared Pro-File: Edward Crocker

My name is Edward Crocker and I was born in New York as an Army brat. I saw the world at a young age because of this and joined the Army in hopes of seeing more. After I honorably discharged, I decided it was time to get an education, so I used my military benefits to pay for my rent as I went to school but eventually those benefits ran out and and I had to look for work. I had been in and out of the restaurant business quite a few times, so I looked for a job within the field but couldn’t really find anything that caught my eye until I was looking online one day and I saw an ad for Pared. At first, I thought it was to good to be true since they offered competitive pay and a flexible schedule, but before I knew it I found myself working in a string of fine dining restaurants like Atelier Crenn and Saison.

With Pared, I was now able to fulfill a demanding college schedule as well as work because of the app-based system they have. The flexibility is definitely my favorite part about the whole experience and without it I honestly don’t think I would have been able to graduate on time. I am currently working towards being a firefighter and will continue to work on Pared until I reach that goal.

If you are thinking about joining Pared, but are unsure, all it takes is filling an application. There is no pressure to complete a certain amount of gigs a month to stay on and you simply work at your own pace.
