For the past two decades, Ed Hennessey has spent his days teaching high school and his nights picking up shifts at Blockbuster, Steak ‘n Shake and Target — “you name it, I’ve done it,” he jokes.
But as of this summer, Hennessey is retired from education. He’s found a much more lucrative job delivering groceries.
Hennessey, a 45-year-old living in Orlando, Florida, now works full-time as a shopper for Shipt, a membership-based grocery delivery service owned by Target (think Uber, but for fresh food). For 60 hours a week, he’s cruising store aisles, throwing items into his cart and driving them to people in the community. Shipt didn’t respond to MONEY’s requests for comments, but its website says shoppers pocket an average of $22/hour. Hennessey says he’s on track to earn as much as $100,000 — about twice his teacher salary.
