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.
Driver Associate (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – September 17, 2018
The one and only positive thing I liked about Uber was the many different people I got to meet. As a whole this company gave no benefits to its drivers, no compensation for car maintenance at all, and in my opinion Uber could have done a better job of looking out for their drivers.
Being kind, uber eats sucks. It’s alrgiht if you wanna meek some extra money on nights or weekends but this is not great as a full time job. As of last week (September 13ish, 2018) the drivers couldn’t even get their money they earned off the app.
I am a Uber driver in Miami, I use my car for uberXL, uberLux and Uber LuxSUV service categories. The numbers I just found in indeed,as average salary for uber drives is unreal at least in the city of Miami. I am not sure about the number of drivers in the city. But I dare to say that there must be around 10 cars available for avery ride request, long hours waiting for a trip request. Most of cases when lucky to get a request are for a short distance, that would pay between $5 to $11 to a driver The drivers of these categories are facing a hard situation to be able to bring some money to their homes, feed their families and pay the most basics bills. Resign driver for uber could be an option, But how about when a driver is already Financing a vehicle or wouldn't purchased for personal use. A Lux car in this case. The money that uber pays to a driver after their fees is not yet net earnings. Not yet deducted gas, car worn out, time invested during trip and connected before the trip, tax and other deductions. If uber had to pay for cars, gas and drivers salary there wouldn't be so many uber's cars on Mami's streets, not even 1/4 of the actual amount. My average working time conectes in the Uber app in the last month 60 hours a week, 22 average trip received per week on the busiest areas of the city, average earning in bruto after uber service fees $430. That would be around $5 an hour after has deduction. My driver rating 4.95 five stars. No way they might complain.
If you nees to get bye until somethibg better comes alog is the job for you
Uber Partner Driver (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – September 16, 2018
Uber is a job just like a hotdog stand and and other vendor based business it just provides transportation there are good days and bad days. To male a living at it which I would say no and just do it part time...iy is a 100 dollars a day hustle not including deductions for gas and vehicle maintenance....but it can be fun and it can be boring driving in Los Angeles can be stressful but rewarding...if you like to drive then this is the job for you maybe....
working for uber is not a typical job,,, cause you set your own hours ,,,according to the peak time for work which is often when peopole going to work or coming back from work ,,happy hours weekdays ,,, or nights out of the week end ,,
i learned alot of stuff like
how to navigate , how to adjust your timing and to be patient customer service and solving problems for job related . how to handel stress from driving in traffic and related issues. most hard part of this job to manage yoiur positions and locations at peak time so you can do a good job and a to make a good money .....
most enjoyable part is meeting a new people , making new friends ,, dealing with differnce kind of people states wide
the most bad thing about this job is there is no job security"'... ....

I recommend this to anyone who is in between jobs, working and not happy in their position. This is extremely hard work yet the rewards are well worth it. If you're second guessing yourself, definitely take the chance give it a try.
Can work anytime, great customer service, impactful position

Uber Driver Partner (Current Employee) – Baton Rouge, LA – September 13, 2018
Having no HQ to call is frustrating, but for the most part the overseas call center isn’t bad. Pay is good and it’s easy to work whenever you want. However, in Baton Rouge (medium city) it’s pretty dead during the day unless you work 5-8 am, and Friday/Saturday nights up until 3 am.
Professional Driver (Current Employee) – Liberty County, GA, and Palm Beach County, FL – September 12, 2018
For a typical workday, I make sure that I provide my customers with a clean vehicle and several amenities to travel to their destination comfortably, along with friendly customer service. The one biggest thing that I like about working for Uber is that I get to meet so many unique people, not one is alike.
Uber Eats Driver (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 12, 2018
this job allows me to get experience in customer series. I get to pick my own hours and work as much or a little as I want. the Uber company is not very helpful when there are problems with customers or restaurants.

Driver (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 11, 2018
My typical workday began about 5 p.m. This is usually the peak time. I normally kept pretty busy due to many getting off work and needing transportation to and from work. The hard part of the job was getting through afternoon traffic. The most enjoyable part of the job was my ability to work around my children school schedule.
