Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I enjoy Uber because it is one of the few well-paying jobs that allows me to log off whenever I want and do the things I like to do. If you want to travel for a month or go on a camping trip, you don't need to book time off or deal with management in order to enjoy the things you love. The huge downside is that for a living wage, you need to work at least 10 hours a day, and some days can be VERY slow. You never deal with management other than e-mail memos reminding you of the rules and laws that Uber and drivers must follow. The hardest part of the job is sitting waiting for rides, so if you are the type that can't sit still, I would not recommend it. Overall, Uber has been a good experience, and has allowed me to do the things my former job prevented me from doing.

Pros

Free time is whenever you want it

Cons

Long hours of no physical activity.

Uber finds ways to pay drivers less money

I was online 5 hours 15 minutes without any calls. I've been with Uber 3 years, it just keeps getting slower and slower, less money. I contacted support. Support people just do they're job. They're job is to put you on hold till you go away or deflect you to useless solutions

Pros

Work when you want

Cons

Low pay

Independent contractor work, hardly see anyone from Uber

Great as a side gig economy hustle, work when you want and as much as you want. Sometimes when doing Uber eats there is too much down time, other than that it's good

Pros

work when you want

Cons

wear and tear on vehicle, too much down time sometimes

Waste of time

Do not waste your potential future in this business , work elsewhere they would deactivate your account anytime without any proof so just find yourself a different job, they only customer focused kind of industry where they have no respect for the drivers!

RIdeshare operator with UBER

Work with Uber is like a hand to mouth Experience. I.E., if you work you can make some money if not, there is nothing. Also, it does not have the benefit. So on a rainy day's full of uncertainty will be around.. That's why looking for a job with a certainty.

Costs associated not worth it

Hey there A good pastime, to meet people waste gas, eat, get thirsty and pay out maintenance costs. Spending doesn’t equal payout. Too many drivers fight for same dollar

It can be fun if you like meeting new people

I personally regret having done this job because you pay for your own gas and the pay is very little when you compare it to the kms you travel. Only good thing about this job was meeting new customers.

A business model full of flaws

A flaw full business model @ foundation. Vulnerable beyond imagination! Over valued, novice & shallow product that offers ZERO or negative value/ROI to the invested. Modern day slavery SCAM???Irresponsible/unethical/immoral execution of business model @ foundation. Zero evolution since inception. ONLY, only a robust network with zero “proprietary” ownership/concept/contribution. How is this a revolutionary business model? It’s like placing a rifle on the shoulders of others to fire because own/personal ability is NUL=EXPLOITATION! Fares should be higher compared to taxi standards. Service provided is of unmatched quality, convenience, safety, efficiency & the experience. On the contrary; fares are lower?!?!? Revenue generated does not support healthy standards of living in a first class society. Third world fare algorithm in a first class nation? Shame? A novice/failed fare algorithm which fails to account for real world events & beyond. At whose expense??? BS??? I blame my state government for granting the permit to conduct this model of business in my state/province. Incompetency stamped all over it!!! Gave false hopes to millions of peoples & continues to, intentional & self-interested over-saturation of supply chain to demand with an antique/novice fare algorithm & ZERO revolutionary element. Are any Uber executives collecting below minimum salaries??? WHY ARE DRIVERS??? Why is there no partner quota system in place? Why the over-saturation??? Which body is governing your unethical practice? How much “bribery” is involved here??? Unacceptable! A garbage product with a negative - 

Pros

Flexibility & the range of Social Interactions

Cons

Reliability, Sustainability, Safety, loyalty, below minimum salaries, poor partner support, failed fare algorithm, faulty rating system, faulty queue system, ZERO HUMAN TOUCH & more

No way to contact the company

No way to contact the company. If you have an issue there’s not a contact number and if you send an email they’ll respond after one month or more just saying that the problem will be solved. But maybe it won’t be solved.

Difficult to make money

Uber floods the market with way way too many drivers making it difficult to get enough rides to survive. The wear on your vehicle makes for more costs which eat up any money you make. You have to put in long hours at different crazy hours to get paid peanuts.
