Driver/Mentor (Current Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIMay 28, 2014
I don't really feel like my job is a driver because I simply spend my day meeting people. It does not feel like a job, and I enjoy that the most. The people I work with are all very friendly and enthusiastic, and I have not come across anything that really takes away from the overall experience.
Pros
Constantly meet new people
Cons
Expenses can change dramatically

Long hours, no benefits and false profit potential.
Rideshare Driver (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CA 94107June 22, 2018
You make a lot less than their proposed income level. Was not aware ahead of time of being a independent contractor, so the affects of owner taxes along with income tax at end of the year was devastating. All the taxes along with the high gas prices made the 12 to 16 hour days 7 days a week not even close to be worth it. If you make good money to start out in an area, you will not have to wait long for you to be forced out of an area by a constant increase in the number of competitors for those fares. The company does not care about their drivers, because they do not limit the number of drivers in any area. I put 60,000 miles on my car in a year and not much to show for it, no time for family or other interests.
Pros
If you truly assess the value of things, no pros.
Cons
Life sucking trend.

Driver (Current Employee) –  FortlauderdaleJune 21, 2018
i start at 8:00 pm and finich at 6:00 am next morniing.I learned to deal with many diffrent genders.It feels good to be my own manager. I try to keep my work place clean and proper.The hardest
part of the job is picking up rowdy teenagers after getting out of a
disco tech or bar or strip club.Obviously the best part of the job is getting payed but i also ejoy meating new people.I really enjoy
working at night as a driver because theres no traffic the weather is nice and everything is peaceful.I absolutely hate working in traffic with the blazing sun on my face.. There are also too many accidents
in the daytime.Besides the rowdy teenagers and drunk passengers.
It is a very decent job. I have to admit it is a very decent job.
Pros
Getting payed and meating new people.
Cons
Rowdy teenagers and drunk passengers.
