Waiters and waitresses are generally paid an hourly wage, though most of their income comes from tips. While servers might have to wait a week or two for their checks to be deposited, they are able to take home the tips they earn the same day.

There are a few downsides to waiting tables, some of which include getting scheduled on a less busy day or being seated tables with people who aren’t big fans of tipping.

According to Grubhub’s website, drivers can cash out whenever they want, though they’ll incur a $0.50 transaction fee each time they do. If you cash out your earnings to a Chase bank account, you won’t incur any transaction fees.

Lyft drivers are able to collect their earnings the same day they work by using Express Pay. While the feature allows workers to send their earnings directly to their debit card, Lyft says the amount must cover their weekly rental charges.
