Lyft Saint Louis, MO (US) isn't hiring right now. Check out all Lyft jobs
I worked at Lyft (Less than a year)
Make your own hours - that is all
Lyft takes all their revenue and places it on the backs of the drivers. You are charged for their service (really is non existent). Here are their charges against you per ride: "lyft platform fee" (passengers paid lyft but we are taxed on them as income); "service fee" (charged to rider but driver pays the taxes - sound like the first one?) ; "third party fees" (mystery fees that I am sure they pocket and again charge the driver in taxes). Not really sure that lyft pays anything in taxes as the driver pays them all for them, quite a racket really! Add gas, wear and tear on your car (younger people will understand this later in life) and general cleaning of your vehicle due to filthy riders. on more than one occasion I was sent to pickup to find the rider was in a different city with the same road name, twice for that, a few times for a rider that had already been picked up by another driver etc. lyft does not pay when THEY mess up so you lost money on fake riders! Short mileage passengers so you make very little of those rides as it cost more to even get there to pick them up. All in all at the end of it I paid more into it than I earned. government needs to look into the ride share and food delivery companies as there is really something fraudulent about all of them. there is 0 none zilch way to contact the "main" office as there is no phone number to all. You email them with an issue they ignore it and only send some bad replies having nothing to do with the issue reported. Drivers need to unionize as the "company" puts all their income on the backs of the drivers who make nothing due to wear and tear on cars, gas costs and cleaning after disgusting passengers stink up or dirty your car.
Advice to Management
better reimbursement and take on the cost of doing buisness on yourselves instead of the low paid (if at all) drivers!
