    Uber branch moving to Deep Ellum (possibly)

    Here's a wee bit of insight about Companies moving to Dallas I learned on my old job. Old job in Seattle. Lets say you were a run of the mill project manager earning 100K/year. Your position is relocated to Dallas with a salary of $85 a year and MAYBE a one time moving bonus of $15k. You...

    "Do you have an Aux Cord?"

    Uber has made it pretty clear that drivers are not part of the Uber team but as "small business owners" and sub contractors. So why should I try to be part of a team which clearly doesn't want me?

    Long Trip Return Fees

    Kinda like the cheap bastards which order Uber X from the Ritz to the airport or after dinner they take Uber X from Javier's. If they were known for tiping they would not be taking Uber X. 1565286002 One of the best threads I've read on the forum over the past year, if not the best thread. Can...

    Suspected fraud

    Couldn't agree more. I hate fighting with my PAX when I ask them to do the simplest of things to help me keep my job, but sometimes you have to. Oh, so you go to SMU and study Computer Science but you can't figure out how to update your drop off location ... Oh so you're a social worker for...

    Fake queue numbers

    Oh gosh no, I don't think Uber is exploiting driver ignorance by posting false information in the driver app. Lookie here, Uber was so kind to me last night they created a special Uber X queue for me with ZERO cars in queue. All the other drivers had to go to the regular queue which had 36...

    How Satisfied Are You With Driving With Uber?

    Like so many things, Uber doesn't really need to survey drivers but it makes good press. All Uber needs to do is look at their numbers (data). For all the kicking, @@@@@'n, and screaming we did when the surge multiplier was removed, here we are again, all still driving and new drivers join...

    Uber pro

    Driver A is on the road for 4 hours. She takes 5 Select PAXs trips, declines 7 Uber X trips, and earns 150 dollars. Driver B is on the road for 5 hours. He takes 10 Uber X trips, 3 UberEats trips, and 2 Uber pools. Does not decline any trips. Earns $75. Uber math says Driver B is the...

    Killing Surge 101 Video

    I'll be substituting for Prof Uber with this reply. What was Uber trying to achieve? 1) Lure drivers to LUV with the appearance of a high reward surge ... Achieved. 2) Insure that most drivers that were lured to LUV would not be paid surge by removing the surge from the pick-up area ...

    Distributing resumes to PAX.

    My 2 cents ... Go for it. The worst thing that can happen is you don't hear from the PAX again. Since that already happens on 99.9% of the rides anyway, you've got nothing to lose. If you think it could impact your ratings, well let's weigh that out. You having a rating of say 3.9 does...

    no way to cancel ride last night

    " Seemed like just a temporary glitch." Really, a glitch? Are you trying to get a job with Uber CS? Billion dollar "tech" companies don't have glitches. They do have highly paid data scientist and industrial psychologist (yes that's a real field) who like to test theories on additional...

    Standoff at Buck's

    I've seen a lot of busts at that place but never with the police involved. Handcuffs, maybe, but not police.

    Airport Surges for Airport Only

    Saw this surge message last night at LUV. Not sure if it applies to DFW but I have read about it being applied to other cities. Called priority support (b/c I'm so special, NOT). They referred to this situation is a boost surge. I guess that gives them cover to claim the boost program is...

    Interesting spin on tips (something I read / wish I could be so smart)

    Veteran Status, NOT going to happen. Like so many Uber features, Uber posted this one to great fan fare, didn't get the return THEY wanted. Veterans' status was NEVER important to Uber. They just used a Veterans campaign to get more drivers on the road, suggesting that Veteran's were somehow...

    Uber Driver yearly salaries in Dallas-Fort Worth, TX

    That's like saying a McDonald's franchise owner "earns" $2 million a year. Of course after you subtract labor costs, franchise costs, food costs, utilities, etc, the franchise owner brings home maybe 150k.

    No ride requests at closing time

    As you head into the Dallas from I35E-S or from I-30 approaching from the west, for some reason Uber will ask you for a vehicle selection. When I tried to select a vehicle it never listed my Escape. Not surprising, Uber offered info about their rental options. Once I reached Main via the 75...

    A little friendly competition?

    Here's my idea, as rates, trips, surges, and promotions continue to disappear ... lets see who remains an Uber driver the longest?

    Uber playing games with airport surge

    I don't understand the sticky surge. I'm guessing that if the driver has a sticky surge of say $3.00 but the area has a $1.50 surge posted, the driver with a $3.00 surge is the LAST driver Uber will offer an trip to ... but that's just my crazy way of thinking.

    Destinations Turned Back On ... Kinda

    I seldom use the destination feature so I may be the last driver in Dallas to know this. I had set the feature this afternoon, was about 1/2 way home, dropped off a PAX, and then Uber tells me the feature was turned off as I had entered a busy area or pick-ups were taking longer than usual or...

    I Used To Hate $1.25 Surges

    That was until I started to see $1.00 surges. Has anyone read about the lowest "surge" offered by Uber?
