I have been working at Lyft part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Flexible scheduling, easy scheduling interface, great support team. It's a great way to make your car holistically useful to the community at large while making good money. The smartphone integrated system is easy, thoughtfully designed and fast.

Cons

Almost all communication with support and management is via email and text message so if you're not comfortable with communicating almost exclusively via tech this may not be the job for you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You're doing a great job so far. Keep it up!

    Great opportunity for easy money if you are a good driver and have access to a car.

    I have been working at Lyft full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Its very flexible. You can work whenever you want or not work without worrying about the schedule. People are generally very friendly. You get paid weekly. Pay is pretty good.

    Cons

    Can be hard on your body. Driving gets tiresome. It can also get pretty boring because you constantly have the exact same conversation over and over. Also the management is always threatening to terminate you if you don't have prefect feedback from customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please try to give drivers who got a low rating really detailed feedback as to what they have done wrong and how to improve.

    Pros

    Fun, meet different people and network, cheap rides

    Cons

    no communication with drivers. Drivers are forced to do their own marketing on their own dime. Company takes profit WHEREVER they can get it. Riders hardley ever tip becasue the APP used is not very clear. Lots of technical trouble with APP. Worst off- the crap drivers and even passengers get from police and authorities. This company was designed to keep drunks off the streets and encourage networking to help with unemployment. It is a good idea- there needs to be less flack from politicians.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with your drivers for God's sake. Many of them used LYFT as their main source of income. They put miles and miles on their cars, paid big bills to keep their cars maintained, gased and cleaned.... bring back a floor! Sto lowering the price- make it worth the trouble to be a driver. And do some marketing on your own!
