Driver (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – October 13, 2017
The average hourly salary IS not $35 it is anywhere between $15 & $20 an hour, however, there are days if you get premium rides you could average around $25 an hour overall it flexible job & customer support has gotten better.
Driver (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – October 13, 2017
Bonuses are unachievable. Unfair rating system. Passengers are often drunk and ungrateful. Very hard on your vehicle. Hard to make enough money to even cover the cost of gas due to they send you way out of your way for a 2 minute ride.
Good pay but many out of cost expenses for upkeep and maintenenance of car
Lyft Driver (Current Employee) – Williamsburg, VA – October 12, 2017
The job is alright You get paid weekly, the work schedule is extremely flexible you work wherever and whenever you want to for however long you desire. However you put a lot of miles on your car and you spend a lot on maintenance fees.

You would not make money in ride sharing as a driver The people make money are Lyft and Uber Millions with little effort Also, riders benefit with cheaper rided If you have no other jobs, of course you can temporarily rely on this
fast pace, fun loving wor place and great networking.
Driver (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – October 10, 2017
My day would start with prepping my vehicle, weekly car washes and creating a setting that clients felt the out most comfort being with me as I took them to their destinations. At times the hardest part was to gauge how much does this new customer want me to talk, if at all haha. I love doing this job because of the endless potential to meet all sorts of people. My only downside to this job is the constant upkeep maintenance I have to get performed on my own vehicle which can bring up personal expenses pretty high at times.
Manager/Driver (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – October 7, 2017
I was able to set my own hours and days. Meet people and made lots of money. The best part about driving you can do it when you want to. I did like cleaning the car after the customers, so just do not take care of you car. I can pick the area I want to drive in.
DRIVER (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – October 6, 2017
After doing this as a full time gig for a year I can say that it is a easy job. Nothing difficult about driving. If you don't want to talk you don't have to. The pay varies greatly depending on when you are driving and the wear and tear on the car definitely builds up over time.
Driver (Current Employee) – Ft. Worth, TX – October 6, 2017
Decent pay as a driver, especially if you drive a car with great mileage. Though, if you live in a quiet city, you may or may not make a whole lot. If you're looking more to explore your community, lyft is also good for that.
Lyft Driver (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – October 4, 2017
Its great when you get to make your own schedule, the only bad thing is the gas, miles, and the effort for little pay at times. especially when I drive 4 miles to give someone a ride, and the ride was only 3.50
Rideshare Driver (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – October 3, 2017

Driver (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – October 2, 2017
Lyft was fun to work with at first. the rides can be great but every so often you get the one rider or group of rides who are the worst to pick up. then you have to be careful of whats called the pukers. they party during the weekend and get so drunk they will puke in your car. though lyft will cover the clean up cost, its the idea of having to even go through that. then you can get pick ups in dangerous neighbor hoods. and some of the people you pick up are questionable. you never know whats going to happen on a Lyft ride.
Work your own Hours
Riders can be dirty and can puke in your car, Lyft doesn't cover out of pocket cost for driving.
It's good if you just need another small source of extra income, along with another Job, however, expect to drive a lot to make decent money, and even more if this is your only job. Don't do if you can't afford the difference in gas.
As a left driver, you are your own boss. You work your own hours, control your schedule and depend solely on yourself to make it through the week. It is a great job for driver experience, and it is also great for those who need a steady job with very flexible hours.
flexible hours, earnings guaranteed, you're the boss
