    There is no danger, you only need to be vaccinated, which everyone should be.

    Why Full Time Drive??

    I would not advise Working full time for Uber/Lyft. There is no job security and no rewards. What they give you today might be taken away tomorrow. You put your life at risk every day and you are not earning enough to cover the risks. This job is only good as a part time Gig or a transition...

    I thought we were going to choose our quests?

    Same here: I have been Diamond since the beginning, cancellation < 1% and the quest is less this week 35 = $35, no choice, no longer 6%. Are these guys high??? Is it Coke, Meth or weed 🤔

    Los Angeles Drivers Preparing To Strike

    Well, nothing is forever on this Planet. What brought the sack of Rome in the IV century is “outsourcing”. It might happen again to us in a short future.

    Whatever you do don’t go to the pit

    If they would know proper English grammar, they would make the difference between « who » which is the nominative form and “whom” which is the accusative form or the dative one... rooted in German: Wer, Wessen, Wem, Wen...too bad we don’t teach Latin anymore, it was the best way to learn grammar...

    Unnecessary One Star?

    Rating is not a Uber thing, it is everywhere: everyone gives ratings and gets ratings: I am asked to rate my physician at NW, my dentist, my lawyer, my broker, my mechanic... Yelp starting it 20 years ago. At work I get rated by every client I work with, if he doesn’t respond right away...

    Speed Warning

    Lately I have been using Uber as a rider a lot à nd I must say only 60% of the rides went without incidents: 1) missed a stop, 2) speeding on N Lake Shore (60), 3) GPS, drive North instead of South, 4) Drive around the block 3 times before finding the address and I get charged time by Uber when...

    It’s so depressing how Uber has become!!

    Uber/Lift can only be a part time job. You need a primary job offering health care, paid vacations and a 401K. This is no longer the XIX century

    More Uber Theft

    That was before 2016 when all of us had to sign a document stipulating the new ways we are getting paid. Overall per mile and per minute. No longer 20% or 25% of the rider’s receipt. Of course they kept the commission rate on the new system too..working as an independent contractor gives you as...
