Bad working envrionment
Driver (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC14 January 2019
Pay attention to your working environment, cause no one will care about it, if you get compliance from client, they will cut off your job immediately, without your explanation.

Uber Winnipeg -tragic situation
Driver (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB8 January 2019
Skip the dishes own 80% of the Winnipeg market so if you are Uber contractor, you don't have work. I did delivery for 2 weeks on rush hours (x1.6), On average I earned in 4 hours $29 (x1.6) Basically the wage below the minimum $7.25.Several days it was no orders at all, No tips. Also since Uber does not have customers aka no drivers the App gives you pick up location 20 min drive away. and drop off 5 min away. so you drive, spend gas and get mileage 4 times more and Uber won't compensate that. Overall Uber does not pay you, you pay Uber ;)) I'm done. This job for dum-dums who cannot do the math.

P.S Also check your MPI , if you are doing delivery the insurance premium might change for you. Extra$$
Pros
flexible schedule
Cons
way to many

flexible time, earning not stable
Driver (Current Employee) –  Windsor, ON6 January 2019
Its a good company but you cannot consider this work as a full time job especially if you have children. salary depends on how many trips you get which is cannot be controlled by the driver. Its not always safe especially when a drunk person is the rider. the application needs to show more information for the driver such as waiting time in the area to get a request.

Driver/Operator (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB18 December 2018
This company is one of the worst to work for they are taking around 40% based on average trip(including booking fee and other fee)I am surprised how this company ia allowed to operate when pay is only $4 to $5 an hour and uber is hiring thousands of drivers every month.its better to work foe skip the dishes or pizza delivery than uber and no matter how long the trip is its never more than$15 if you are lucky.stay away from uber it is taking drivera towards below poverty line.
Pros
None
Cons
Too many to write

Good income when High demand time.
Diver (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB24 November 2018
Typical day of work is very similar to taxi driver.
Sarts with log in into the drivers app on drivers own cellphone, waiting for the trip request, pick-up the party, drive them to their destination, drop them off and all over again.
Pros
Flexible time of work
Cons
Long waiting between the trips, and high vehicle expenses: fuel, maintenance insurance. And punting high mileage on the vehicle.

Not a good job, very less pay.
Driver (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON18 November 2018
It is not a good job, just a side job as part-time to pay the bills. The salary is very low and you are destroying your car while working. I was not happy.

Typically you can make a good wage if you consistently get orders, but usually that is not the case. Staff on the assistance line are helpful and responsive. Restaurant and customer interactions were pleasant.
Pros
Flexible, app is easy to use, good side job
Cons
Traffic can be a problem, you don't always get orders, restaurants are sometimes slow

Tiring physically.

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.

Good fun job, but not busy enough
Driving Partner (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB1 November 2018
The two best things about Uber are the flexibility and my customers that I have the pleasure to drive every day. The downside is that it appears that Uber has reached a saturation point for drivers. That's good for customers, but not so good for drivers.

Tip: Don't deliver food if wrong address, you won't get paid
Driver/Operator (Current Employee) –  Burnaby29 October 2018
They screwed me up big time. Customer made mistake with address, I was so nice that I actually deliver the food to the new address which is about 7km, called the support and paid me 0.95km saying distance was correct, I kept telling them it was wrong. So if you're a driver if customer made mistake with address just take the food and dont bother delivering it. Uber eats doesnt fix it

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
