I’ve used Uber a few times as a rider. As of right now, I don’t have any complaints. I’ve also thought about driving for them, but my vehicle doesn’t meet the requirements. I’ve wanted to know some of the things that the drivers go through.
One of my friends named T is a driver with Uber. She agreed to answer ten questions about Uber for me. Below are the questions and answers.
How did you find out about Uber?
T: I found out about Uber through an advertisement on Facebook.
How did the hiring process go?
T: It wasn’t too bad. There are a few steps that you have to go through. First, you have to fill out the online application. Next, you meet with an experienced driver. They examine your car; gather all important information (Driver’s license, registration, etc.). Then they run a brief background check. Once you’ve passed the background check, you’re in.
How long have you been driving for Uber?
T: I’ve been driving for six months.
How much do you make during a typical week?
T: I usually work six days a week. I make between $600 – $800 per week.
How often do you get paid?
T: I get paid weekly.
Do you have any crazy stories?
T: I haven’t had anything that crazy. I’ve had a lot of drunk riders. That’s it.
What time of the day do you like driving and why?
T: I like driving early in the morning. Everybody is trying to get to work or to the airport.
What don’t you like about Uber?
T: I don’t like it when the rider cancels in the middle of me coming to get them.
Who are your typical customers?
T: My typical customers have been tourist, people going to the airport or students.
Anything else we should know?
T: If you have road rage and don’t like being stuck in traffic driving for Uber might not be for you. Driver should always keep in mind that they are being rated. Those ratings help out A LOT.
