Mission: To unite humanity and technology in order to make everyday rides welcoming, affordable, and memorable.
I have been working at Lyft part-time (Less than a year)
Flexible scheduling, work as much or as little as you want, nice and interesting passengers, easy payment process, good rating system overall, good bonus program.
Sometimes you have to drive a long distance for a pick up or from a drop off, sometimes a long wait for a drive request, 15 second pick up acceptance time frame is too short.
Advice to Management
Keep driver software app as up to date as possible.
I applied online. I interviewed at Lyft.
I was contacted for a phone interview which I thought went really well. I could tell that the manager was young and enthusiastic and he seemed like a great person to work with. He showed interest in my previous experience and gave me an honest outline of the role saying that it was still being shaped as they just recently acquired an office in the Denver area. I was then asked to go in for an in-person interview at one of their onboarding events. I was interviewed by two managers, both the gentleman I spoke to on the phone and another female employee. The questions were not difficult and I felt confident and excited about the opportunity. I brought up a concern about the schedule as the days off would be Friday and Sunday. I asked if that was negotiable because I thought it may be difficult to not have my days off consecutive. I felt like the female manager got very defensive about me even questioning this and it felt like me asking the question ruined my chance of being considered. I received an email 10 days later that they were moving forward with other candidates.
