Anyone have any info or experiences good, bad or otherwise?
My husband is thinking about doing it in addition to his part time job. He is working for REI right now and loves it but only gets about 20 hours a week. We are thinking this would be easier to manage than trying to juggle two PT jobs with varying schedules he'd have no control over.
I don't really know anything about these companies and haven't ever used their services. But I know I've heard some controversial things. And of course I worry about his safety. So far the worst things I've read are that you don't make as much as they advertise & to make sure you have enough insurance. We already have a newish car, fully insured, registered, inspected, etc. and no issues with driving record or accidents. I think it sounds like a good fit for us at the moment. But I want to make sure I'm not missing any red flags.
I've never driven for them but I have used both and one thing I've heard from a couple of drivers is the importance of taking breaks, getting out and stretching periodically. It is possible to develop back problems from driving a lot of hours (one Uber driver who used to drive a big truck cross country told me this) so that's something else to investigate.
