    I have been working at Lyft part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lyft was made to share your car with others. Honestly, I am ok with that especially if its for gas money. I have been going through job pitfalls recently and have discovered that driving in the morning or evening rushes has giving me the money I need to pay a couple of bills. I love the flexible hours that I have created for myself but I recommend it only for part-time because its your vehicle your vehicle up keep isn't cheap

    Cons

    In my city, its a big city I recommend going to a certain area where you don't have to drive too far. I mean going towards the client, you don't get paid until the client is in your car. That is something I don't like because I take into account traffic and mileage. It may take you 12 min to pick somebody up but once the person is in your car it may take 5 minutes get him or her to its destination and what you gain from those 5minutes in your car is simply not enough. Just Keep in mind that you will drive more than you expect to receive back. It's not always the case but I have been going through some of those lately.

    Advice to Management

    I like the bonuses but sometimes they are not clear enough, I feel we should get an email instead of explaining on a text what the $300 bonuses work or something like that. I like the idea that y'all keep the constant (don't text and drive). I appreciate that as a driver. So far the updates on how payment works has been great but would like to see an improvement in when we go to pick someone up for over 10minutes of our own destination.
