  1. Toronto (Ontario)
    I was reading Penn State's 2019 Research paper on PART-TIME RIDESHARING, and how they do not quantify part-time work as "NUMBER OF HOURS" driven, but rather how dependent the driver is on the income of gig-economy. i.e. Driving 35 hours, but the NET$ only amounting to 3% of your annual...
  2. Toronto (Ontario)
    It with my sincere condolences to inform that 1500 trips in less than a year is in fact not part time.
  3. Flex
    New here. Is there anyone who is able to deliver for Amazon Flex full time in the Chicago-Lisle area? Is it possible??

    Buenas Noches The more and more I continue to drive the more I say to myself that I need to get a dash cam for obvious reasons. I haven’t had any serious issues come about as of yet, but after watching countless YouTube videos and also hearing all the freaking horror stories all is drivers deal...
  5. Las Vegas
    Hey all, My nephew told me he was thinking about leaving CSN and driving an UBER full time cuz he heard he can make 1K/Week working it full time. He said he knows he would have to treat it like a full time job, put in at least 40 hours a week, but I've heard some anecdotal horror stories. He...

    I have come to believe in Karma over the years. Sometimes it hits you hard and fast, other times it waits patiently. Some background... years ago I was just another idiot drunk driver, almost every night for quite a long time. Somehow I never got into an accident. That all came to an end with a...

    Hi Gang! Next week i am taking off a week of vacation from my IT day Job and driving for Uber 50+ Hours. Even though i worked really hard this year (the best year by all metrics) The company isn't doing as well as it once used to, so i suspect no bonus for me this year. So i will give myself...
  8. Cincinnati
    I'm considering leaving my current job to drive uber/lyft/ubereats full-time. I'm just looking for an idea of how much I can expect to possibly make. I've already calculated how much i'll need to make to support my current lifestyle, i'd need to make at least $450 a week to off-set gas costs and...
  9. Advice
    -I am trying to get documents together for a residency appeal for out-of-state tuition to be claimed as a resident of South Carolina for college. Out of state tuition is DOUBLE, in-state. The job I have now is part time. Part of the appeal is having a full time job of 37.5 hours. Now, I know...
  10. Philadelphia
    Hey guys, I'm new here and been poking around for a while tonight. I've been driving Uber part-time for about six months now, nothing crazy. Been toying around with the idea of trying to make it work full-time. I live in the 'burbs, about 30 minutes outside of the city (if 76 doesn't suck..) and...
  11. Phoenix
    I'm currently only driving Friday and Saturday nights on random weeks when my old lady goes to bed early. I'm out from 8-1 or 9-2 depending on how early I have to be up the next day. I can make $75-$100 a night when I have both uber and lyft on though 95% of my rides are through uber. Random...
  12. Complaints
    This question is always the start to a really awkward conversation where they are gauging right off the bat if you are worth talking to... literally. "Do you do this Full-Time or Part-Time?" really means, are you a minimum wage POS or do you contribute more to society than driving me to the...
  13. Boston

  15. Advice
    I honestly believe it has been down hill since before I started, I was tricked into driving for $35 per hour But that was and is obviously a very bold lie. Uber has to be running out of new markets right? People only drive and use uber until they know better and the same goes for lyft. I notice...
  16. Baltimore
    Hey everyone, So I'm fairly new to the DC area, after having moved here from NYC for a new job. 6-months into the job, I'm learning that the workplace culture and the structure of the role I fill are not very professional. I have strong feelings about the need to move on, but will still need...

  18. Chicago
    I drove for Lyft, then for Uber, then both... Lyft seems slow, no surges, but then, they are have good incentives for full time (70 rides)... Uber has slightly cheaper fares but busier... Any input on comparing these two from a full time driver standpoint? Where do you make more? Where do you...
  19. Miami
    Is anyone doing Uber full time?
