uber is great for a part time job to make a lil extra cash on the weekends but with having to use your own car and do your own maintenance its just no good as a full time job unless you mack the grade to drive for uber black or suv

If you ever wanted to see a race to the bottom in progress, this is it. You can make more per mile delivering pizza, as Uber is constantly dropping rates, raising charges, and discourages tipping. Driver reviews are vague and pretty much anything less than 5 stars is a vote for that driver to get suspended and pay more to this company to get reinstated.
This is great if you have a real job and use the app to cover your regular commuting expenses, but after you factor in your car costs there isn't much to be made here. You'd be better off and have more security greeting people at a big box store.
You're your own boss. Work harder to get paid more.

This job is how much effort you put in. You'll get to decide your pay scale every week. Treat it as a full time job and expect to be rewarded. I average about $900 a week for only 30h in driving mode. Sometimes I push myself to drive 40h+ and I'll be compensated about $1000+. Push yourself for the driving bonus for completed trips, it's a great and easy incentive; if you're willing to put in the work. Only flaw is uberpool sucks, racism, drunks, and no benefits. Loving uber so far. I quit my restaurant job for this!

I worked for Uber since Aug 2015 until April 21, 2017. I begin working full time in 2016 to see how much I can make in a full year. When I started they ran a background check on me and after it cleared iI off making money. Last March I bought a minivan specifically to do Uber I put 70k miles on it in one year. Uber is worth over 60 Billion dollars and drivers are made to cover all the expenses. I basically ran my car into the ground to help them become so rich. They recently ran a second background check on me and deactivated my account for a 17 year old incident after I completed over 5000 trips without incident and ran my car into the ground. They classified you as a independent contractor so you don't have any rights as a employee. It's a big joke to work for them they will use you and spit you out.
Fun and entertaining, but too many miles on my car.

I'd rather not comment on this company about tips , and their office workers get a 1 star. It seemed like no one knew what was going on n never helpful. The. Implant has improved a lil the 2 years I have worked for them .
No benafits, lot of miles on car, dealing with real drunk people

Driving with Uber has it good and bad. You have to be willing to place a lot of miles on your vehicle and be able to carry a conversation as well with every style of people. You have to be motivated and have some patience as well. You set your goals and pick your time to work.
Uber was a fun great place to be an independent contractor I'd go back their in a heart beat. their support team is second to none you can make lots of money but you gotta wanna work 60, 70, 80 hours a week like I did for almost 2 years. but I just cant handle the hours right now at this point in my life.
Its a great place to meet new exciting people from all walks of life

Its great to have control over my schedule and having the ability to earn money at the same time. Driving also helped me get familiar with the city. I feel as though fares are too low- that is my major complaint about Uber.
DRIVER (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – April 19, 2017
Typically I would drive on the weekend nights in Boston. Being enrolled in college full-time made it difficult for me to keep up with this because I needed time to complete my assignments and working all weekend made it hard to do that. The people that I met were wonderful, the overall experience was interesting, and I learned my way around the city by driving and interacting with the people who live there.
