    Ratings drop since Uber Pro

    I've been a 4.96 - 4.99 driver for over 3 years. My strategy has always been to not pick up passengers with a rating lower than mine at the current time and no farther away than 10 minutes and it has worked well for me. Since Uber Pro was introduced my rating has now dropped to 4.87 for no...

    You're doing great!!

    About a month ago I had perfect 5.0 with Lyft. It couldn't last forever. One week it dropped into the middle 4.9s. The next week it dropped again. The other day it dropped yet again (I'm such a scumbag!). Lyft's message at the top of the email: You're doing great!!!

    Star ratings translated

    I have multiple 2 star ratings, which made me think... what is going through the pax mind when they rate? Here are my thoughts on what they might be thinking... 5 stars: ride was okay or good or great, I would do it again (or) I heard that if I rate below 5 that they could get fired, so...

    Lyft doing bait and switch with pax

    It’s happened to me twice in the past two days. I accept a ride request, and start driving to the PU point. Suddenly, there’s an update, and I’ve got a new PU point at a different distance, and with a different name! The first time I thought it was a strange glitch. The second time I knew...

    Uber Drivers, does your ratings go down after you give lower stars for your PAX at end of rides?

    I'm thankful that I don't really get matched with lousy PAX on Uber that often, but few weeks ago, I gave a PAX three stars (I don't want to be matched with this PAX ever again) for reeking of marijuana scent and that the scent hinders my judgment when driving. Afterwards, my ratings dropped by...

    Uber rating for new driver

    When signing up as a driver does your passenger rating become your Uber driver rating? Should I sign with new phone number / email etc? Do all new uber drivers get a 5 star rating and it goes down from there?

    What happened to the Late Night Hero badge?

    I had eleven of these badges until they all disappeared sometime within the last few days. Does anyone know what happenened? Was this badge removed from the app or were mine taken away for punishment or something? Please share.

    Frustrated for getting rating dings that make no sense...like driving last week in ice, snow, sub-zero temps. Sorry my car may not have been up to your standard of cleanliness, or that you got salt on your outfit. Sorry I didnt see you on the other side of the 8 foot snow pile. Sorry I didn"t...

    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...

    How to be a highly rated rider

    Since I've seen a couple of posts recently advising riders how to become five star riders, I decided to come up with my own "Expert" advice. Dear riders, It's much, much easier for you to keep a perfect rating than it is for your drivers. Simply be on time at the right place, be courteous...

    Driver ratings in the new driver's app

    Hello. Ever since the new driver's app (I got mine a few months ago), there have been several settings/reports that, either I don't know how to find, or they have eliminated completely. In the old app, my ratings would pretty much change in real time (give or take an hour), and my total 5*...

    Not Receiving Ratings

    I started driving after recovering from an injury that kept me from driving for about a month, approximately two weeks after the "upgraded" uber app went into effect. Since then, I've received virtually no ratings except for ONE five star a couple of weeks ago. Then it DISAPPEARED a couple of...

    Pax View of Driver Ratings

    Last night I went to a party, and when it was over four of us decided to head to a nearby establishment for another drink or two and some further merriment... So, I ordered the Uber to take us there. Robert accepted our ride request, and we headed out to meet him. I noticed, before his arrival...

    Two most impotent attributes to working Uber is you need to be subservient and compliant.

    I am noticing more posts than usual about drivers being deactivated for low ratings.

    Wonder Twins Power, Deactivate...

    Couple weeks ago I shared how I was permanently deactivated by the master. Serious thought went into how, when, why, what. I won't recap. There were a couple skeptics that chimed in with their inherent negative vitriol. However, I was well pleased knowing in all the views and comments, only...
