Uber eats is amazing
Courier (Current Employee) –  London5 November 2018
It's simple, can work when you want to, promotions are good. It's nice how you don't need a car and pretty much anyone can get hired and the pay is good considering it's not a scheduled job.

Worst Help & Support
Uber Partner Drivers (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON23 October 2018
Started working as Uber Partner Driver in Ontario Canada. This company has bad software for application submission and poor process. After a month from visiting green-hub still unable to receive trips. Only help and support available is to call and the call center is in Philippines. The representatives are inexperienced huge waiting time and of course the best they can do is to read a few lines of general uber rules from web. Guess what any one can do that. Whats is the purpose of calling someone who thinks Barrie Ontario is in Pennsylvania US.

Hard on your car, big gas bils. Random low ratings
Uber Driver (Former Employee) –  Lassale Quebec20 October 2018
Get ready to trash your car inside as outside for next to nothing in return. And then on add drunk and high out of there mind Passengers, and also random ANONYMOUS low ratings/feedbacks that will make you loose your access to the uber app and this is pretty much experience you will get after investing time and money before actually getting in to uber game.
Pros
Totally flexible schedule
Cons

Amazingly flexible... if you're good enough
Driver (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON7 October 2018
Ratings system defends good practice, yet is at times is unfair. There will be some riders who will rate you 3 stars just because you didn't give them a meaningful experience and this is not how Uber intends the ratings system to work. At other times you are not protected for example when a rider vomits clear liquid: Uber will only reimburse detailing if you provide photographic evidence and this is hard to do when all the young child in the back was drinking was vodka...

If you learn your city, you will inevitably find the sweet spots to troll for fares. In Guelph, during any time of day you can reliably make 20 dollars per hour if you park yourself in a competitive spot.

The tax situation here in Ontario is kind of sketchy, I'm still not sure whether or not I am left stuck paying Uber's taxes on my fares, but this is something you should look into before diving in: it's not as easy as it at first sounds.

As for wear and tear, this is real. Plan to have some money saved up for the inevitable catalytic converter replacement, and remember that no matter how great of a driver you were, Uber will drop you like hot garbage as soon as your car is older than 5 years.

Good supplemental income if you're going to drive a few times a week. Potential for some crazy money is there as well.

Also, surge is a lie. Chase the surge and waste your time and patience.
Pros
flexible hours, daily pay option, potential for big money, people are nice
Cons
need willpower to actually make money, car wear, people are horrible

chauffeur (Former Employee) –  Gatineau, QC20 September 2018
trop de frais d essence, salaire en dessous du minimum , vaut mieux faire un autre job .
99% des passagers vont en Ottawa et comme la loi interdit de charger des gens la bas , juste les déposer on fait 50% et enormement de KM avec la voiture vide.... perte de temps et d argent avec des clients jamais content et qui savent pas dire bonjour....qu ils payent un taxi 3 fois plus cher car uber ne marchera jamais dans cette ville.

Driver Operator (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB17 September 2018
My past year with Uber has been great. Flexibility is the best thing ever. You control your own time, people in Calgary in general are awesome, everyone is polite! As a female driver, I have never felt unsafe.

Uber Driver (Former Employee) –  Distrito Federal9 September 2018
Tired work, having to drive long journeys a day to be profitable.

The nocturnal journeys were the most profitable but dangerous, for this reason it was very tiring.

Great supplemental income, if there were not so many hoops to jump through...
Driver (Current Employee) –  Greenville, NC6 September 2018
I have been driving for Uber for over a year now, and I make decent money driving on football weekends. The hours are flexible and most of the customers were friendly. Unfortunately to continue to drive for them, there are a lot of hoops to jump through ever since they got heat from media about a few bad egg drivers.. I have had no complaints, and great reviews, and no incidents on any of my trips. Yet they require routine background checks that take weeks to complete through a 3rd party company called checkr (you cannot drive during this time)... Also I recently moved to another state, and turned in all the necessary paperwork and documents, got approved to drive in the new state after waiting 2 weeks for everything to be approved, and 3 months later they require yet another background check, as well as well as copies of my old VA license and my new NC license.. both of which I have already sent them numerous times.. if it was easier to drive for this company I would give 5 stars.. but right now it's just a pain to maintain driver status
Pros
Flexible hours, no boss..
Cons
Major pain to keep driver status up to date, and a lot of waiting periods that you can't drive.

I always have an issues cashing out!
Driver (Former Employee) –  Georgian Beach, ON6 September 2018
Uber is trash and it’s better to drive for Lyft period! Uber messed up a $500 dollar week for me by making me wait 2 weeks to receive my money. The cash out everyday scheme is a joke! They try to over charge on the simplest things.
Pros
Money whenever you want
Cons
Fares are trash, Half of the support team is from India and they speak broken English.

wasting time on the road
Deliery Driver (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB25 August 2018
not to good work now. recently company changed fee for drivers. Now drivers fee reduce than before they got. But they did not changed the fee which company charge from drivers.
Also very poor skilled supporter team. If something happened other than app when you call to supporters they make another problem to us. not solving problems.

Uber Driver (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON21 August 2018
This kind of job is not suitable for persons with a family. The pay can vary per day and the customer you pick up may not be the account holder. So beware.

Great work life balance
Driver (Current Employee) –  Toronto14 August 2018
Great to do part time, terrible to do fulltime.
Used to be a good income replacement, now not so much.
Discounts for riders come majorly out of driver, and nowadays 8/10 riders have discounts making the fare for drivers garbage. Uber maps is terrible, use 3rd party as the city hasnt been updated of late.
Pros
work life balance, be your own boss
Cons
terrible pay now, uber always takes sides of customers even when they are in wrong
