treating drivers poorly with lousy pay
Driver/Operator (Current Employee) –  Denver, CONovember 9, 2018
Whatever uber does lyft follows/ They just cut drivers pay per mile by 23%...from .84 cents now to .64 cents. Are they trying to clean house by forcing drivers to quit and get drivers who are willing to accept what they give them? I used to have nothing but good things to say about lyft but no more... Very greedy ... very demoralizing.. they should rewards drivers who are loyal rather than penalize them/
Pros
work when you want
Cons
too long to go into

Driver (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLNovember 7, 2018
It is the best job I have had because it is so open to choice. There are the occasional hiccups with some of the GPS markers, but their customer service is fast and fixes mistakes quickly. I maintain a high rating with all of my rides and continue to build a customer base for myself.
Pros

Great if you have a lot of free time
Driver (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CANovember 6, 2018
This is a great job to check out if you have a lot of free time and have a car. This is a really easy job but all you really do is drive people to their destination. Since I believe that there is no promotions or anything like that, the job can get pretty repetitive and boring, but you gotta do whatever you can to get that extra cash.
Pros
Flexible hours, Some benefits
Cons
Competition, Waste of Gas
