(CNN) – Instacart plans to hire 250,000 new workers; that’s in addition to the 300,000 brought on in recent weeks.

The grocery delivery service has seen a surge in demand spurred by the coronavirus pandemic

The startup wants to hire the new workers over the next two months.

The “full-service shoppers” are treated as independent contractors.

Instacart’s goal is be able to meet the recent high demand and “get back to same-day delivery.”

Some customers have struggled in recent weeks to secure delivery slots due to the high demand.
