      Great way to make extra money meet new people and you can set your own hours.


      You’ve cut driver pay significantly while simultaneously over saturating market with new drivers. You offer no incentives on some weeks and weeks they are offered they are nearly impossible to achieve ie streak bonus for 1 hour periods. No offering of power zones decent guarantees and elimination of incentives such as power driver bonus. My last interaction regarding bonuses was that they were assigned at random and not guaranteed. Your loyalty and dedication to the company are not rewarded or recognized. Quite sad that it’s come to this. Can hardly cover expenses or justify wear and tear on your car for the now pathetic compensation offered given lack of bonuses or incentives.

        Flexible schedule (if you don't want to try for a bonus) and riders are a little higher quality than Uber.


        With a larger vehicle, I am averaging $50 and 4-6 rides every 4-5 hours online. Chasing "hot" zones is a bit of a sick joke and the airport averages about an hour wait for a $15-20 fair. The app is very glitchy and seems to work in the favor of Lyft; disqualifying drivers from the bonus by saying "something went wrong" and then showing that a ride was not accepted. Apples to Apples over the last four weeks, I have been online 32 hours with Lyft and received 8 rides for a total of $150. I was on during peak times in the "hot" zones, but burned all my $ in fuel trying to get to good zones. All that effort resulted in one peak ride. I worked 38 hours online with Uber, received over 35 rides for over $700. I tried to make Lyft make sense and worked into the wee hours to try for the bonus, but it is very much a setup to fail scenario. Very disappointing experience.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)


      Project Manager

      Hey everyone, Just needed to vent a bit about this job hunt. It's been a wild ride, to say the least. Lately, it feels like I'm sending my applications into a black hole, and I'm not alone in this, am I? Interviews seem to be the rarest gems, and job postings seem to disappear as soon as I hit 'apply.' Anyway, I'd love to hear your experiences. What's been your biggest frustration as a job seeker? How do you stay motivated in this crazy journey? Any words of wisdom or empathy to share?


      Marketing Manager

      What are people’s thoughts on those personality and logic tests some companies made you do as part of the hiring process? I frankly don’t like them. I understand if the test is for people who more technical but for roles leaning more creative or ideas based - I don’t understand how patterns I’m forced to review in a short time tells them I’m worth it to get the Hiring manager round. One asked me 50 ques in 15 min. And they never tell how you did on the tests


      Brand Marketing Strategist

      Anyone have any stories of times where you declined an offer at one company (just because it wasn’t the exact right fit or you got another better offer at that time) and u successfully re-connect? Is that a burned bridge forever? Would they consider you for another job again?
