Better than minimum wage labour jobs.
Driver (Former Employee) – London, ON – 15 July 2016
In my city most of the riders are students, so once school ended demand dropped off. It became clear that there was no longer any profit in it.
During the regular school year after gas I was making a little more than $15 per hour. The rating system is annoying, riders will give a 4 star rating if you are not super chipper. If your driver gets you to the right location safely and securely and he's not a douchebag give him a five for God's sake. Also, Uber is always telling people not to tip, that's just wrong. If people tip cabbies why not Uber driver's? They just want to control the entire money stream.
Communication with the company is a little frustrating, I have never actually been able to talk to anyone.
It would be tough making a living doing this while at the same time you are taking away a living wage from a cabbie, you have to question the ethics of that. Yet it is better than a minimum wage labour job.
Not worth the effort and time.
