I’m a 23 year old woman. I work M-F 8-4 and I’m looking for a side job. I’m having a hard time deciding which to pick.

I got hired to be a server at a busy casino sports bar and grill and by Uber and Lyft.

Which would be the better choice? Pros and cons.

it really depends which schedule is most flexible to work with your day job. then it's your personality. if you don't mind driving around all night for a couple hours at a time, be a driver. keep in mind, you may not always get fairs and get paid every time when you go out driving. where as if you work at a casino or other business, you are paid with your schedule on your shift.

Food server, free food. Uber/Lyft picking up strangers in your car? You choose.

The server. The tips should be large and the security is better as you'll be in a crowd all the time. As a driver there is no one to protect you from the passenger and there are no tips.

I would not be comfortable driving for either service. As a young woman I'd think you would be better off working where there are many other people and not in a car alone with strange people.

People think they are making good money with Uber but don't take into account that their car is depreciating with use. You are a parasite on your car's value. People get paid a mileage fee and of course they spend it, when they actually should be saving it for replacement costs of their vehicle.

Food server. It's more of a real job, you'll establish relationships, and have a supervisor you can use as a reference. - Download Hi-Res Songs
