Tries to be hip.
Sort of relaxed but management is chaotic and reactionary. People nice. Projects come in suddenly and can be just as suddenly ended. Generally positive. Company depends on subsidies so this is something I would look at if I were returning, would rather see LYFT with a stronger revenue statement than cities providing subsidies.

Do not waste your potential future in this business , work elsewhere
they would deactivate your account anytime without any proof



so just find yourself a different job, they only customer focused kind of industry where they have no respect for the drivers!

Less than minimum wage!!! Was not paid TOLL FEES!
I have been driving for Lyft for about a year now, and I can say you will make LESS than the mandated minimum wage here in Ontario. They are aware of this, but do NOT care for the drivers. If you do not believe me, be my guest and try it out for yourself. Once you deduct all expenses and collected HST, your take home is less than minimum.

Another reason I am very furious right now as I am writing this today I completed a ride that the toll fee alone was $15. I DID NOT GET PAID FOR THE TOLL!!! I contacted driver support, and they stated that yes they see this and they are not sure why I was not paid the toll. As for paying me back, they stated another department is in charge of that but THEY CANNOT BE CONTACTED BY PHONE ONLY EMAIL!! This is ridiculous, we already get paid less than minimum wage and they are not even paying us for the service I provided! I can't even speak to them, only via email!!!!
Pros
You will have flexible hours to drive your car around for fun, ... and not get paid until your next $4 ride in an hour!
Cons
Less ride request, was not paid for TOLL fee that the customer requested and app directed me to take the toll!

Great side hussle with flexible hours
Great company to work for, flexible work hours, good support staff, great bonuses and lots more flexibility that allows you to have a good work/life balance.
The only downside is the company commission is a little high (30%) and the per km rate is a little low (0.80c/km).

Since one is an independent contractor there's also really not much room for growth. But this is a great side hussle good for side income.

Not recommended as a full-time job since the weekly income isn't consistent and varies depending on the season and time of the year with times being extremely slow and at times being very busy.
Pros
Great bonuses
Cons
Inconsistent earnings

Minimum Wage job, plus expenses
this is basically a slave wage leverage system set up by the company to yield profit only for the company. expect 12-15$ an hour, not including expenses such as your gas and wear and tear on the vehicle. Expect 50k-75k km a year on your vehicle as well.

TLDR: good if you are close to being homeless and have an old car
Pros
your own time, no boss
Cons
everything imaginable

Great workplace with great people
A typical day at Lyft Visual is where I would come in on time, be taught and then instructed to perform tasks (packaging, using the tape machine, cleaning) and meeting quotas (10 boxes of pamphlets, vinyl rolls must be packed by the end of the day).

This was a temporary job where I would be called in on and off throughout a 4 month period.


The most enjoyable part of the job would be the friendliness of the co-workers and supervisor.


The hardest part of the job would be remembering how to operate the tape machine after packaging for most of the time but I still managed to remember and was able to perform my task effectively.
Pros
Friendly staff and fun tasks
Cons
None
