Featured Review

Former Employee - Warehouse Associate

I worked at Amazon full-time for more than a year

Pros

You only work 3-4 days a week and the work is very easy Job have super great benefits

Cons

Tasks are very repetitive, work can take a toll on your body

Advice to Management

Management is great!

Current Freelancer - Lyft Driver

I have been working at Lyft for more than 8 years

Pros

bonuses are extremely generous (summer 2021). That's the main pro in my opinion, the pay is nice. The app is better than it's ever been, too.

Cons

Passengers often need to be reminded to wear a seatbelt and a mask. Sitting for long hours can leave you with chronic pain from sciatica or knee issues. This is a big con. don't drive for more than a... couple hours at a time!
