Some shifts now include unpaid breaks—these will be indicated in the shift details, so you know before you accept and work it wether you can expect to have a break on your shift.

The section underneath the rate details specifies both wether there is an unpaid break and how long the break is.

When you work a shift with an unpaid break, you should rely on direct communication with the onsite manager to know when to take that break. When you are clocking out, you'll notice the break time automatically deducted from your time worked, so you don't have to worry about manually subtracting it from your time.


I worked a shift with an unpaid break, but I never took it. How can I get paid for the time that I worked?

The best first step is to communicate with the onsite manager about this. In all cases where shifts have breaks, it is their responsibility to accommodate for it. If they explicitly asked you not to take it (or told you that you couldn't take it for some reason), reach out to Qwick support by texting 79425. We'll help you out and adjust your pay if appropriate.

Note that if you chose to not take a break despite the onsite manager asking you to, it will likely not result in adjusted pay.
