We have all had that rider who, after accepting, texts, "sweet, you have a big car. I have a lot of stuff."
There used to be days i didn't cancel when I got that.
I admit I noticed. Then again I am too used to the Internet that I just expected it.
If you want it to completely fall off, sure. but it really shouldn't have a huge impact for those who do lots of rides. For those who do hundreds of rides a month, the average barely moves upon a one-star hit.
It used to devastate me and ruin my week, but recently, I have learned to not care. Phew.
Everyone gets a one-star review from time to time.
In my opinion, one-star reviews can never be trustworthy. It's usually left by someone angry, overreacting or just want to get free rides. Grumpy people who just want to rant or spite people.
When I am on Amazon, I only check 3-star ratings. Those are the people who can weigh the good and bad and leave useful comments. The same is true with Uber ratings.
This dude is a stud.
I wonder what Uber's response was after that.
Uber probably decided to reduce the # of drivers in that particular region. They are known to "cut off" drivers when a market reaches a saturation.
They do this so they can keep the pay level above a certain threshold. In some ways, it makes sense; fewer drivers, steady demand, and more each driver makes. Then they advertise that in regions where they need drivers and in court where the quality of driver lives are questioned.
It is a bully move for sure.
Nope. They usually keep what they make. They usually give a cut of the revenue to the taxi company, people who they lease their taxicabs from.
It depends on the city though. In some, they pay to lease the taxicabs (the actual vehicles), and they get to keep all the money they bring in. In others, you give them a percentage of what they brought in.
I think bus drivers and train conductors get paid hourly. I mean, I have no idea but I assume.
Just call one when you arrive. Someone who is closest to you will come and get you. It barely makes a difference.
And to say goodbye to our grandparents 20 years too soon
Right, like a modern day stripper job. Just temporary to get through school. Brings tears to my eyes.
Don’t get me started with multi floor apartments and large complexes with no guest parking. And people who are too lazy to come down.
What am I supposed to do with the car? I’d be happy to leave the food on the curb
So many drivers complain about how they aren’t getting paid enough, then, when they hear about the ads on the rooftop, they get pissed off.
Uber is still not profitable and drivers are hurting from falling wages. We should be welcoming of innovative ways to make this business model work.
I’m all for this. I will drive for FireFly when you make it to DC/Baltimore at some point.
I know what you are getting at. You wanna hear the disastrous stories of Uber driving. Ha!
We have our ups and downs, but I make $20 plus on a bad shift. So if I drove an eight hour period, that should be about $160 even on a slow day.
Of course we have our good days and that comes with bad days. All of us has had those shifts where we tried something different from the norm (day different area or different time/day) and totally struck out. Even then I feel like I’ve made at least $100.
I’m in Baltimore.
Once in my like five years.
I saw it in the rear view mirror. I really thought she got shot in the back of her head and her face exploded. That’s what I seriously thought for that split second until the stench reached the front seats.
I will never forget Emily. My first.
Btw, thank gosh she was with friends. I mean, what would I have done if she exploded and passed out? Straight to the police station, I guess.
What are they doing at the rally? Is this one of the picket lines?
If Uber's changing the date was indeed triggered by this strike, it means it was a big success. It means they made a difference and there was enough impact felt.
I think those companies are falling like flies though. It's really hard to figure out the liability aspect of that business when it comes to minors. With so many regulations, laws, and demands from insurance carriers, they all end up being licensed school bus companies.
It's a shame because there is a huge market for it.
Ability to set your own fare and we get to accept cash payments. It looks like I will be getting 0% commissions always. LOL
Do you have the ability to turn off your Pool rides? I don't think I do. I looked into it last year.
That is so true about low ratings and poor tipping both come from pool rides. They take out their crappy experience (of riding with others) on the driver. Grrrrreat.
Well, tis is true. Uber just connects people and drivers and make a huge profit off of it. You can't discount how their apps enable people to connect, of course, but I get his point how the "real work" is being done by the drivers themselves. If there was a public mechanism to connect people, or something government driven, there wouldn't be a need for Uber. That is also true.
Right, you can't even change your account number like you can with Cc.
WAT. Is this really the impression on the streets? Here we are claiming the current vomit clean-up fees are too low, and people are thinking we are trying to make people throw up. What is going on?
When someone pukes, it's not just the cleaning up that costs money. It's the time off the clock as we cannot drive another passenger until it is completely cleaned up and the smell is gone. This can be hours, and in most cases the shift is over. and that's a shift usually on a lucrative day like Friday or Saturday night.
