    Newbie to Eats - how many minutes to wait before tapping 'order not ready'?

    Hey all *wave* First day on the job for Uber Eats. After arriving at a restaurant, how long do you wait before tapping 'order not ready'? Also - I have done 5 deliveries so far but no customer has put in a rating from what I can see on my app. Is this usual? Lastly- any tips for making this a...

    Uber Eats tips and advice - northern suburbs

    Hey there, I’ve just started out a few days ago, and my first night just to test it out I wasn’t on long but nothing. Second night I drove through a busy area but didn’t get any trips. Third night decided to give it a proper go (last night, Friday) and it was great. Got pretty much trip after...

    Taxes

    I've been doing Uber for a year and this will be my first time filling taxes for them. Is there any recommendation on a great tax preparation place/person. I keep all my records, record my mileage in a log book. Just need a person that can get me the most back and doesn't charge an arm and a leg.

    How was your Drunksgiving (Blackout Wednesday)?

    First time driving in a week, after waiting for car repairs. I was nonstop 11 pm to 5 am. I would have gone longer but used both destination filters by mistake and deadheaded from Chicago. (Sometimes changing arrival time to a supposed existing filter invokes a new one). I made $130. A year...

    Hello From LA-LA Land

    Hi everyone, I'm a new driver and very excited to learn from the seasoned pros on here. I'm also a female driver, so I'd love to get that perspective as well. Just trying to make a $1 out of .15 cents.

    Clarification Wanted - Gold Coast

    Hi Folks, Just moved to the GC and thought it would be an easy dollar earner here, I quickly realised a DA is many $$, transferring CTP is many $$, finding an insurer for my car as a ride share vehicle is extra $$ and on top of that Uber help line are vague in any info given which is read of a...

    UberVIP + 5.0 rating = cash tipper PAX

    Just had a nice Greek old lady gave me $5 for 19 min ride. When I got the ping I was wondering how she maintained 5.0 rating. Now I know. First time I see one.

    Any Other Female Drivers Out There?

    Hi All! I’m 3 weeks into driving Uber, and really only drive about 3 nights a week. Keep hearing people say they never get a female driver, especially at night. I’m loving it so far, money is good, averaging $20-23/hr., only about 15% tip average, not sure if that’s normal but love cash...

    Just testing the waters

    Hi, I have a 2005 Toyota Matrix that will probably get me low ratings at first, but I need this side job with out paying too much up front. I was considering doing the weekly rental, but for that money I could get my old girl detailed and probably buy some hubcaps. :) I am hoping to work just...

    Uber is back to trolling for Drivers with Professional Recruiters.

    They are back at it again. What retention? Good luck with a 4% unemployment rate. Even the Fuzzy Math Camels can figure out that it costs more (COGS) to drive than you make. Like I said before, Dara turned this into “Wings.” You too can drive someone to the airport for half the price of...

    Behold the confusion of a new driver.

    So I've been driving for a few weeks now. I mainly work the evenings and weekend hours in Philadelphia and at first, I was riding high on that 5.0 but now with a few low ratings I’m down to a 4.86. I’ve been super stressed out about that and can only imagine who the F gave low ratings and why...
