Driver (Current Employee) – Tysons Corner, VA – August 16, 2017
Wether it's busy Saturday or a rainy, wet Tuesday, I decide if I want to work or stay at home with my family. When I do get out there and start working, I always know I'm going to have a good day. The thing I love most about being an Uber driver is meeting new people. There is so much diversity and the conversations are very entertaining. The fact that I get to take a break or stop driving whenever I choose is great. I would say the hardest part about driving for Uber is not being able to satisfy the customer for what ever reason.
Uber eats driver (Current Employee) – London – April 20, 2018
Such a rubbish company, no respect for partner, closes account without any appeal system, no respect at all. I worked very hard and all of sudden they closed my account saying I didn't complete some journeys at eater address, which was rubbish, I explained my phone did that a few times as it was old, but they didn't listen and closed my account. There is no way I would have done this on purpose, its all fix pay, why would someone stretch a journey without extra pay. no point.
THE JOB t uber was very trying. I dealt with a lot of drunk people. this is good for tips but some customers are very difficult.. They don't off enough benefits and there is a problem with security. All in all I thought the job was interesting.
Self Employed Contractor (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – April 18, 2018
If you enjoy spending your life in a car while people can pretty much get way with defaming your true character, this is the job for you. This job attempts to change the opinion you have about yourself. You know you're doing a great job, but for some reason Uber/Lyft platforms remind you daily that you're not good enough for them.
You get to have some really good conversations. You can go on and off the app when you need a break.
Low pay, false accusations without investigations, no team players
You work whenever you feel like it. I normally be online by 1030am and offline by 10pm and sometimes off during that time. I get to see my neighborhood and meet different people. I get to learn about the different restaurants and the type of food they prepare so later I can try them out. the hardest part would be the gas and the mileages on your vehicle. I enjoy driving for Uber Eats.
driver & referrer (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – April 14, 2018
It is all up to you. I found the company easy to work with as long as you don't ask too much of them. Learn as much as you can from the website and youtube. And then mess around with the app so you know what you can do with it. Then the job is really easy as long as you can get rids and your good with different kinds of people and places. You get out of it what you put into it. I only worked in the daytime. The bigger money is at night with the party people. But my night vision is not that good & I don't like people being stupid & barfing in my car. But if you're up for that you will make more money.
Independence & freedom. Seeing new places & talking with interesting people.
Chofer (Current Employee) – New York, NY – April 12, 2018
This job was very relaxed sometimes stressful because of the traffic that happens and you have to deal with it. Sometimes also the people you get will be mean but you learn to control yourself and respect them
Independent Contractor (Current Employee) – San Francisco Bay Area, CA – April 11, 2018
Drive and interact with people as I take them to their destination. This is quite useful for getting positive information about something you might be interested in thats around the area. Or things you can get a deeper insight on as far as who's hiring or what the companies are looking for in a potential candidate.
Uber Driver (Current Employee) – Saint Louis County, MO – April 11, 2018
I basically pick up customers and take them to the designated area. Based on my service the customer may tip. Also it’s a cool way to experience different people culturel background. Great conversation with our customers insures a comfortable ride.
Rideshare driver c (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – April 11, 2018
After over 700 rides, I have come to severely regret working for Uber, or "partner" with Uber. Uber X has some potential, but overall you will lose money- I guarantee it. Never waste a minute with eats. This the biggest scam ever. They will short you on your pay, which can be fixed by messaging them through the app or calling driver support that have representatives from another country who have no idea what they are doing. I've had to call any a daily basis whenever I did eats. It was drop off fees most of the time that I did not receive, and sometimes I. Was short by 50 cents, which I could never figure out how or why this occurred. I could not call the support anymore for all the small increments missing because the time and effort was not worth it. Extremely shady business. I know you have no reason to take what I am writing seriously, if you you spend some time looking up all the Uber scandles, you will see how sinister this company is. The proof is easily accessible. If you like to learn the hard way, by all means work this company and you will see that this is all true.
If you do not live in a busy area you will not make enough money for a living! $3.03 is the least amount you can receive in the Orlando market. So if you only receive one ride request per hour and it is less than, 5-mile drive you will only make $3.03 an hour! That is way less than minimum wage
Uber Driver (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – April 10, 2018
The best part is making your own hours and only having to rely on yourself which is always a good thing. The worst part is getting bad reviews because someone wants to mess with you. I cannot complain because I work if I want to and if I am tired I go home.
Driver (Former Employee) – Lansing, MI – April 9, 2018
If you need money fast, have a smart phone, have a reliable car, and full coverage then you have a job. Driving your own car for work will not pay out in the end. The amount you're being paid vs taxes/gas/car maintenance (which goes up when you're driving everyday), in the end you're making less than minimum wage and destroying your car.
I enjoyed driving for Uber. I liked the flexibility of making my own hours.I also enjoyed meeting and greeting the customers.The only downfall with the job was not being able to contact them by calling,There was only chat type communication on their Help line.
