WAITR Drivers Needed in Baton Rouge!

So I dropped by the HQ in Lafayette tonight and the "Dash" personnel informed me that things are really booming in BR and they need lots of drivers.

I don't know if any of you have considered it. I haven't checked in on here in a while. But anyway, I'm working like 30 hours a week and bringing in ~$400 after taxes. The full time folks are bringing in $700-$1000.

I'm enjoying the fast pace. Sure, there are times that it gets slow. Like between lunch and dinner. But for the most part, you're hustling. And making tips. $5 per hour plus tips. And they take out your taxes because you would actually be an employee and not a contractor.

I find it kinda crazy that I can put in 30 hours and bring in $400 after taxes and when I was Ubering more I could put in 80 hours and barely break $200. So now I'm only Ubering (and Lyfting) on Friday and Saturday nights from 10 - 2. Making a few extra $$$ doing that and not sitting around for hours at a time.

Yeah, I have ZERO experience doing this in Baton Rouge. Here in Lafayette it's not bad. But BR is a much larger city with a larger city's problems. All I know is that I don't eeeeeeeeeeeeeven try to go through BR at rush hour.
