It is not legal to force a rider to tip but it is legal to add a surcharge to the fare that goes directing to the driver. 5% fuel surcharge , 5% maintenance charge and a 10% service surcharge and there is your right to collect a 20% tip from each ride legally .
You just can't teach an old dog new tricks, can you.SAN FRANCISCO — Uber shut down a party at a satellite California office and at least one employee resigned after some celebrations marking its initial public offering last week got out of hand, according to current and former employees, a setback for the company’s efforts to change its corporate culture. Those people said that the celebrations, which kicked off with company-provided mimosas on the day of one of the largest public offerings in recent history, made them feel uncomfortable and seemed immature — especially as Uber’s stock price ...
I am glad someone is doing the math. It's too bad it isn't the drivers. I assume this applies to UberEats' competeitors like GrubHub, Postmates, and DoorDash.The problem here is that the average profit margin for a restaurant is under 30%. Fast food such as McDonalds reported profit margins about 22% in 2017. Casual dining or family style restaurants have a profit margin between 5% to 10%. Lastly, full-service restaurants such as fine-dining have average profit margins of about 6.1%. (source)Based on the average profit margins above, every restaurant that engages Uber Eats will lose ...
I'm a dispatcher, they haven't killed us but they have surely given us a wound we can't really recover from. Most of our drivers if they're not answering our calls or alerts from their systems about potential jobs we're assuming are doing Uber jobs.Uber, Lyft, and Juno are all apps that show up on their phones during monthly inspections. We also have to make sure they're not using GPS cheaters to fake being somewhere while doing an Uber job.Mostly what keeps us in business is SUV work and specialty vehicles like Mercedes ...
HAPP MOTHER’S DAY TO ALL MOMS! (Especially My Mom here - MOMOF4 - sometimes referred to as MOMO😊)None of us are here w/o our Moms! And I know we don’t say it often enough - THANK YOU MOM! I LOVE YOU! So there it is drivers - remember your Mom Today and Everyday! Thanks!
I will be staying at the W Hotel, which is apparently quite a drive from Barcelona proper. What is the best method of transport from the airport to the hotel and what is the best method of transport from the hotel to meetup spots for tours I have booked leaving from Barcelona?
This is to the drivers. Do you make more money with longer distance rides or shorter distance rides, when all expenses and circumstances are considered. In other words, which do you prefer?I used to think it was commonsense that you prefer the longer trips, but I heard that isn't the case from real Uber drivers.
Now we wait until what triggered the terminations. This article doesn’t have much details.My money in on sexual harassment, and obviously heavy drinking https://nypost.com/2019/05/18/uber-parties-for-ipo-were-so-wild-an-employee-had-to-resign/amp/
Last night my two friends and I ordered an Uber after an evening at a restaurant. The final destination was entered but because we live fairly close to each other the driver agreed to stop off at my house first. All was well until my friend who booked the Uber tried to see what route would be the most sensible in order to drop off our other friend. The driver got very irritated indeed and started shouting at us so I told them that we should all get out of my house and book another trip or I would drive ...
Unfortunately some vehicles may have a recall but parts are not available. I had a recall on my Honda Pilot for the airbags. Took it to Honda dealer a few weeks ago and they fixed it in 2.5 hrs. However I have a 2013 Ford Focus with a recall that came out a few months back. It isnt a "do not drive recall" but dont know if Uber will allow me to use it on platform. Parts are not available until October 2019. I am sure it will take some time to get appt. as people will all try ...

2⭐️ Driver needs to be terminated, and this is the final warning, strike 2 out of 3.
1⭐️ Driver needs to be terminated NOW!

Here's the kicker: "To get to profitability, ride-hailing companies will have to get rid of drivers or raise prices, and they are likely to do both "One of the biggest pressures is Uber’s relationships with its drivers, who went on strike worldwide Wednesday to protest the company’s business model ahead of its IPO. The drivers argue that Uber’s business model enriches company executives at the expense of its low-paid drivers, who are contractors, and not full-time employees with benefits (this issue is at the heart of several lawsuits that seek to get drivers classified as employees ...
