Stressful and like of confidence

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
They give less than minimum wage their drivers I hope they change that. Drivers buy everything and at the end they go back with less. If they increase the wages many people and families will appreciate

Long hours

U have to work very long hours to make money Overall it’s a very good option if you have a job and you drive uber part time to supplement your income because by the time you pay for your experience you make below minimum wage

Work at your own pace, make as much or as little as you want.

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.

Enjoyable job if you put in the time

I enjoy being a courier for Uber, and when the winter time comes the pay is competitive. If you are willing to put in the time and effort, you can make it a full time job.

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.

Bonne entreprise

Vous êtes votre propre boss, pas de compte à rendre à personne. Les gens sont en grande majorité très sympathiques et le travail à faire n'a rien de compliqué.Le seul hic est le salaire, peu rentable à moins de faire 12h par jour. Le gaz coûte cher, je conseille une voiture électrique.

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.

Flexible hours, work from home option, no one is micromanaging

The pros to the experience was that there were flexible hours, work form home options, a tech vibe where people have the freedom to roam about and do as they want at work while still getting paid. No micromanagement what so ever and people have the opportunity to do as they will throughout the day as long as they do their job. co workers were very friendly, the job was repetitive taking calls all day, dealing with the same clients, many clients didn't know how to speak English and very hard to communicate with them which could get very frustrating. Not challenging enough. The work atmosphere and life/work balance is great, can leave when needed and like I said you manage yourself.
