Scoot’s industry leading hourly wages and jobs training

February 19th, 2019

In our upcoming report to the SFMTA, Scoot is proud to highlight that our average monthly wage for our San Francisco fleet team is $22.51/hour. Amidst stories of mobility gig workers suffering pay cuts or being paid below minimum wage, we are more committed than ever to running Scoot’s fleet operations with full-time mechanics who have full benefits and equity in the company.

Scoot hires from the community and offers a comprehensive Jobs Training Program for mechanics with four levels of training. We also partner with local neighborhood groups and organizations, like Positive Resource Center (PRC) and Young Community Developers (YCD). Since launching kick scooters in SF in October 2018, Scoot has hired an additional 13 full-time members to our fleet team. Our SF fleet team now has over 40 full-time members with skills ranging from entry-level Fleet Drivers to advanced Lead Mechanics and Shift Supervisors.

In addition to the industry-leading hourly wage, all full-time fleet members receive full company sponsored medical, dental and vision insurance, paid holidays, stock options, an employee 401k plan, and unlimited free scooting as a benefit.
