...because the business model of Uber is broken.
Uber prices the rates to whatever they wish. They claim they set the rates to what's competitive in the market, which only sounds good on paper. A normal business would consider for "expenses", but Uber ignores it while setting the rates.
Uber drivers incur the cost, such as gasoline, maintenance and upkeep, etc. Uber seem to not take those things into account as expenses.
We actually do not mind waiting for you (during pickup) because we get paid for the time waiting after the first 2 minutes. Assuming it isn't a busy night, of course.
So, looking at the responses, I see the consensus is that they can cancel for any reason at all. Independent contractor. check.
Is this why Uber stopped penalizing drivers for having low acceptance rates? Are they legally not allowed to use that information to treat their contractors differently?Just curious.
I think the idea is that everyone has his or her car payments already. When renting, it just happens that the check is written to the rental company instead of a car dealership or a bank.
I speak like I know what I’m talking about but I agree with you. I don’t even have a car payment and I can’t imagine paying a few hundred bucks out of my pocket while driving for Uber.
Parking, snacks and bathroom. Have those and you will be super popular.
If spots are expensive, time box every person. To like 15 minutes. It will still be a nice place to stop by for a pee break
I empathize with you as customers are idiots and don’t always make sense. However if you are in the hospitality industry, you have to have thicker skin and not take things personally.
What matters here is the overall trend. What is your GF’s overall rating?
This happened to me once when my cigarette lighter fuse blew and there was no way for me to charge the phone. (Learned a lesson that day that the phone battery really does not last when you have your GPS going.)
Long trips. but you have to look at the big picture. Long rides are often followed by a long ride back to the city or airport or something.
At the end of the day, we realize that the most profitable days are the ones where I was constantly driving people, going from one request to another. You get into a rhythm, and that can be a bunch of short and medium trips around town.
This is awesome. Modern day Santa Claus.
So proud of you for attempting to spell it. :) I have no idea either and I won't even try.
"Move now. Pay Later" is what they say. That is pretty odd. but I can see how to some people it can be helpful. The one-time cost for a move can be several thousand dollars/
What about driving someone to a parking garage and months later you get sued because the girl committed suicide? Oh, wait...
JayRide looks like they are there. More limo service than a rideshare but you can book them pretty quick.
Right, you are a normal human being who can read the room and pick up on cues when people want to talk vs. not. I almost feel like this is a lost art.
Right after "You walk back to the car", you should ask, "Find a ticket on your windshield."
Considering that there's a tier above 10,000, which is said to be 20,000, I'd think there must be people with 10k+
All in midst of admitting they'd rather have robots driving the cars than real people. Anyone who signs up is looking at a bare minimum pay by default.
Their influence has been questioned in the past.
