    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...

    Serious idea for Dara

    I doubt the real Dara is taking the time to visit these pages, but if he is, I have a serious idea for improvement, one of MANY constructive ideas. Cut driver wait time at pickup from 5 minutes to 2 minutes. Hear me out... Your most profitable driving product is Pool, right? If you could, you...

    I gave her a chance to repent, but she was too entitled

    I told her we get paid less than minimum wage for waiting, and she grabbed a shopping cart and pursued!

    Don't you love it when....

    Ok, I'm partly to blame, as I accepted a 4.67 ping four minutes away. It was around 6pm and I thought maybe it's just a misunderstood pax, let's give him a chance. I arrive at a cul de sac, flip my car around and start waiting. After about 30 seconds, I start to think "Gee, I wonder why he's...

    Rider added a stop at Walmart then back home unable to cancel waited 30 minutes while he shopped

    First time this has happened to me if someone asks I don't wait while people shop. But this PAX had a stop at Walmart and then his second stop was back home. I tried to cancel after 15 minutes and no go the app wouldn't let me cancel the trip while it was in progress. 30 minutes later he...

    Postmates payout breakdown and shorted wait time pay

    I can’t understand the way Postmates pay and deposits breakdown. Under deliveries in my dashboard it shows the delivery fee+tips but the deposits are random and don’t match up. Does anyone have an understanding if this that they can share? My first 3 days pay was deposited as a lump sum...

    How lyft continues to take advantage

    1. Wait time. If it takes over 5 minutes to drive to pax why should pax be extended courtesy of 5 min wait time at drivers expense . Very generous of lyft at your expense. Pax should get ETA and told when to be ready with the wait time folded into drivers travel time. Extending 5 min wait time...

    My last driver cancelled on us!

    Me: Hi ladies, how are you doing this evening? Pax: Good. Our last Uber driver cancelled on us though! We were locking up and started walking to the car, and he drove away and cancelled! Me: Did you make him wait 5 minutes? Pax: Uh, yes, I think it was about five minutes. Why, is that the...

    Wait time

    I really hope Uber does something different with wait time. Five minutes is way too long to wait to get a cancellation fee. How does it make sense that someone can order an Uber that is 5-6 minutes away and still not be outside within one minute after the driver has arrived. That $0.16/min...

    I hate waiting 5 minutes

    Ongoing proof that drivers have zero value in the eyes of U/L. The allowable wait time on Pool and Line is 2 minutes. Why? Because any longer than that and the pax may be infringing on another pax's time. Can't have that, very disrespectful to waste another pax's time. But regular rides, take...

    A frustrating night

    I gave out more 1-4 star ratings last night in a 6 hour period than I would ever believe possible. It was as if there was a paxhole conspiracy going on, mostly time wasters taking forever to get in the car. Some highlights (lowlights?): ---------- Picked up "Karma", couple of mid-40s women all...

    No Poo for You!

    I was camping at the airport last night because it's a guaranteed ride, right? But it was a brutal wait. And after the first ride, I went and got dinner and headed back to the queue for another ride. Well, 90 minutes later, I have to go to the restroom and I'm gathering up my belongings to go...

    Airport Queue

    I decides to finally try the airport and see what comes out of it..had never even thought about it but the curiosity got the best out of me.. when you get checked into the queue (in this case Select only) obviously there are other cars camping out in select mode only...some or most are regulars...

    Happy about the recent changes

    I am optimistic that the changes with U/L regarding paying extra for picking up longer fares will be beneficial. Beginning of Oct I started ignoring fares that were over 8 minutes away (cuz I cant hit max PDB anymore). I didnt realize how many 12 minute pings I was actually getting every day...

    Airport runs

    I have tried airport pickups and found it is not great. Most are under 25 mins from airport. I have done at night in morning. Also there are always so many people waiting in que

    New in app Timer for Pax wait times

    I wonder if this is part of some more to come since the new CEO started. Abit late but better than never. Although Ill hold my judgment until further testing and see if this is accurate or another smoke and mirrors game from the Uber Gestapo. The only thing that really matters is putting the...

    The Best Thing Uber Could Do

    Is give priority to local drivers who are consistently giving 5 star rides over an extended period. Most areas are so over saturated with out of state or just weekend local warriors. Where is the appreciation for full time drivers who know the area better? If drivers normally wait 3-5 minutes...

    Lyft charging money for extra wait time...

    So I posted this in the Phoenix site because I'm not sure if they are just testing this out in Phoenix, but I received an email today from Lyft. I usually don't read their propaganda emails but scrolled through it and saw this: So I guess now if a rider knows they won't make it in 5 minutes...

    Lyft adding extra time for a fee

    I don't normally read most of Lyfts propaganda emails but I did happen to read this one, and it looks like if they are going to take more than 5 minutes to get in the car they can pay an extra $3 and add another 5 minutes to the timer. The driver can still cancel and receive the $5 cancellation...
