If you're willing to commit 10+hours a day, have a reallyreliable andeconomic car.It might be worth it!The plus is that you set your own hours and take a vacation when you want.




Long hours, poor pay

This was a great job yet had a lot of wear and tear on my vehicle. It was fun and I met really cool people. The pay was nice , when I needed money I was able to just go drive.

It's not worth it - the pay is terrible

When you factor in gas, repairs and depreciation of your vehicle you are basically working for less than minimum wage and in some cases for free. There are times you can sit for 2 hours and make NOTHING! Some customers treat you like you're a low level person or like garbage. Some are insulting. Some are terrible at giving you their location or don't place the arrow in the right place on their GPS. Sometimes they make the pickup point a place you can't stop at and you have to go around the block and try again. Some keep you waiting for 10 minutes and get mad if you drive off. Sometimes you can drive 15 minutes or more to get to a location and they cancel just as you get there. Then you have to drive back because they are in an area where there are rarely trips. You just burned a lot of gas and your time for nothing. Sometimes people want to get food at a drive-through and you make almost nothing in waiting time. I have more but you get the picture. DO NOT WORK FOR UBER unless you are bored with your life and just want to get out to talk to people. The economics of being a driver do not made sense.


Flexibility to work when you want


Low pay, high expenses, unreasonable customers

Every few month Uber increases their cut. They lie about how much the customer pays for rides versus how much the driver makes and pockets the extra money probably in an offshore bank account and laundered. As cost of living increases Uber decreases their fares like they're a charity

Fun workplace

Signing up new driver, problem solving partner issues, technical support. Help wide variety of people. Learning new technology is a plus
