We offer two convenient types of requests. In addition to standard requests, you can accept Swing Heroes requests.
Swing Heroes requests are released up to 14 days before the assignment begins, so they allow you to lock in pay for that day and set your work schedule in advance.
Swing Heroes requests also differ from standard requests in that when you sign up, you won’t see full request details. You will know the day, the pay, the region of the assignment, and the grade type (e.g., elementary or middle/high) when you sign up, and then additional details (grade level, subject, and site location) on the morning of the assignment.

How Swing Heros Works
1) Sign up for a specific date and location on Swing's platform. Swing Heroes requests are designated with a “Swing Heroes” label.
2) Receive full request details, such as location, start/end time, and subject by 9:30 a.m. the morning of the assignment. The school day can start as early as 7 a.m., so you'll want to be awake, checking your phone, and ready to commute to campus by 6 a.m. or thereabouts. (The text notification may arrive overnight, so make sure to carefully look through your message history.) This will help ensure you arrive on time.
You can also log in to your online Swing account to see where you are assigned.
3) If you do not receive request details by 9:30 a.m. on the morning of the assignment, you won’t be needed for that assignment. You will still be paid the rate listed on the request, and you’ll be free to accept another request.
