    My GF is kind, accomodating and professional-also the car smells fine--I see to it.

    One in every 50 riders gives her a 1! A 1!!!

    Thus is the problem with the rating system--its completely ridiculous if riders aren't giving valid reasons for ULTRA LOW ratings!

    I'm guessing odors from last riders (people who bathe in perfume or cigarette smoke) but they've said communication was one of the issues.

    I can understand a 4 but a ONE!? She's not an ignorant troll.

    Wtf is wrong with people? Her rating is slowly going down because of these meanies. Elsewise she gets lots of praise... she goes out of her way to help people.

    Its totally nuts.

      I hear you. Just for your sanity though... Many drivers get 1-star ratings more than once every 50 rides. If you turn this into a 100-point scale, what your girlfriend has is like a 98 or something. That’s very good. 

      Not to sound snarky, but this is true in every customer-facing service industry. People suck. Even the best waitresses will get her manager called and get a $0 tip from time to time. It’s just pure statistics.

      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?

      It does suck. You clean your car, polite, professional, kind, safe, go above & beyond and dont get lost. Some idiot gives you a 1 star.  WTH do these people want? Just remember you cant please everybody no matter what you do. There are miserable, ignorant, mean people out there. Ignore and move on. Dont let it bother you or her because its exactly what these idiots want. You know what kind of person she is, she knows what she does for passengers, thats all that counts.

      Regarding the 1-star, it’s by the people who have nothing going on their lives and gets a kick off of pooping on other people. They feel better about themselves by bringing others down. 

      It’s a form of bullying.

    I don't really get why it's a 5-star scale, if 4.6 is considered borderline. You're basically supposed to rate the driver a 5 if they meet expecations, right? So if you rate 4 or below, that's basically a thumbs down. Why would I rate a 2 rather than a 3? Why make users have to make that decision. It should just be a thumbs up or thumbs down system.

      Let’s just rate them 1 vs 5 then. 

      Oh right, drivers go insane when they get a 1

    I’m gonna make a comment and no one really brings this up. 

    A huge factor in a driver rating is the type and newness of the car, which is something the driver has little control over.

      +1 this is so darn true. 

      Are the riders rating the overall ride experience or the driver’s customer service?

            wow, that's very good.

            4.87 is the highest out of any driver I have seen.  Saw it in Indiannapolis when I visited and I couldn't believe it.  Then again, I am from Jersey, and I'd imagine either drivers suck here or users rate critically.

                  In the Uber Driver app, click on "Account" at the bottom right.

                  Then select "Driver Profile."  The rating should be right below your profile pic!

                I apparently don't deserve the premier drivers.  I wonder what my driver rating is.  This is assuming Uber hooks up similarly rated drivers and riders together.  That is a thing, right?

                      I took my 1st ride in an Uber recently. I've ordered an Uber for my daughter in law for 2 weeks (total of 10 trips). All the 11 drivers have a 4.89 to a 4.97. So I assume there are a decent amount of drivers here in Philly that have decent ratings. From what I can gather as long as your car is clean & smells good, you dont get lost, you dont speak unless the rider wants to have a conversation, and your polite you can maintain a 4.9 and above. There are a few other things that help chargers, aux cord, and let rider choose the music or play their music if they want to. Of course there are those 20 or so people who rate you below 5 stars for whatever reason. Unfortunately you cant please everyone no matter what you do. :) I just wish the riders that rate under 5 stars would tell me why.   I cant fix something if I dont know what I did wrong. I have received 2 reports. One said my car was dirty and smelled. That particular report infuriated me as rider was obviously looking for...

I have received 2 reports. One said my car was dirty and smelled. That particular report infuriated me as rider was obviously looking for free ride. I clean my car before I start my day and I use air freshner. I also check to make sure there isnt a mess left by previous rider. The other report was made by a 19 yr old about navigation my 1st week.  GPS had me turn when I didnt need to. I quickly corrected the mistake. It took all of 30 secs to turn around to get back on correct route. He felt that was worth a 1 star followed up by a report.  My problem with some of these riders are if they were to be rated the way we were how would they feel when they got less than 5 stars with no explanation? How many would even have a job after a few weeks? I also think some drivers are somewhat unfair when they rate riders. Can't we all.work together and get along? Uber is the bigger problem not drivers and riders. I know should've quit posting after the 4th sentence and a Thank you. :)

    Why such a huge inflation?  There must be some psychology professor who studies this stuff.  Why is average rating on Amazon like 3 and for Uber it's like 4.8

            If you're below a 4.8 you're an idiot who has no idea how to drive and you're probably rude and/or annoying to your customers.  I laugh at all the morons who complain about their rating being so low they get deactivated.  I smoke in my car, I never clean it, and I only listen to my music, and I still have a 4.97 rating because I know where I'm going, the fastest routes, and I don't bother my riders with boring conversation.  I say "hello" and "have a nice night" and nothing in between unless they want to talk .

      It is weird. Uber needs to publish one of those charts you see in the doctors office re: pain level but for stars to clear up the confusion. Right now the scale is like 1-2 star = you died in a horrific accident, 3 stars = your driver was a complete nut and you didn't make it to your destination, 4 stars = your driver was bad, car probably smelled, he kept giving you odd glances in the mirror, but you made it safely, 5 stars = nothing special, you made it to your destination without much fuss all the way to your driver was the bomb!

              Excellent idea. Unfortunate outcome. What irony. 

              Maybe they’re referring to the choices in Spotify. The free version can be frustrating while the Premium has millions of choices that I bet people would expect. $9.99 a month. 

              I have it. Totally worth it. Amazon and Apple has similar premium options too.

          No, I haven't heard of that but I know in San Francisco there's been a crap storm over this for many months. They may already be employees by now.

          There are pros and cons on being an employee though.  Benefit packages, insurance, and stuff will be nice. However, we will likely lose a lot of freedom in deciding when and where we work, ability to cancel and pick which driver you want, tax breaks you get from being self-employed, etc. etc.
