I have been working at Lyft (More than a year)
Set your own hours. Get paid daily if your earnings and or toll expenses combine for over $50.
Very very low pay. A job between jobs at best. Better than no job at all, but this is only okay for part time or a form of income when you're unemployed. When you factor in taxes, tolls, time, and expenses -- this job is about minimum wage. Lots of far distance "nothing rides". A nothing ride is when you get summoned to pick someone up who's about twenty minutes away, you get there and drive them about fifteen minutes to their destination, and your total pay for the ride is $6. Now factor in the return time after you drop your passenger off, which equates to about an hour. LYFT takes fees from that nothing ride as well. So you just made FOUR DOLLARS and change BEFORE TAXES. So really, two to three dollars in that hour. Every ride isn't like this, BUT you get LOTS and LOTS of them. Lots of days where you're only gonna make $40-50 in about 8-10 hours, not including expenses, taxes, and tolls. You CAN'T count on this job to survive full time.
Advice to Management
If you pull someone twenty minutes away from their default location, they shouldn't make a penny under $10. Either raise the price or compensate the driver from your billion dollar bank account. REMOVE TOLLS FROM EARNINGS. THEY ARE NOT EARNINGS! Merely a reimbursement, but you keep them there to inflate the earning total and deceive the driver. Also if a passenger is a malcontent with spending $5 on a 15 minute ride, their incoherent opinion shouldn't be considered so much.
