Introducing myself, I got denied by Uber

Firstly, I'd like to introduce myself. I'm Marcelino, but call me Marc as my nickname. I'm turning 22 years old soon. I'm working 2 jobs at Chick-Fil-A and Red Lobster. Taking some educations. My hobby is computing.

Secondly, I always wanted to work Uber, but I almost never able to do it because my vehicle is not above 2005. Honestly, Uber is my dream job for the three basic reasons: 1. I love to travel; meanwhile, I'd love to drive around. 2. Reasonable income. 3. Flexible schedules as my own schedules. So I've made a decision to get a new car soon. I started an application with Uber by using my mom's vehicle as we are in same insurance. Once Uber approves me to work with them, I will get a new car ASAP. When I started an application with Uber, I received their mail says that they may disqualified me for being major violation in the past 3 years. Why? I was speeding over 25 MPH that considers a major violation in their eyes. I was heartbreaking when I heard the message from them. They said I have to through the dispute progress with Checkr Inc. where they got report from. Immediately, I spent several hours by researching traffic laws. Here what I found: The Florida Statatues & Constituions Title 23 Chapter 316 Section 183 explains about unlawful speeding. Not a word mentions that speeding is a major violation, but speeding over 30 MPH may be serious and probably requires mandontary court like DUI, reckless, etc. One more thing: The Florida Statatues & Constituions Title 23 Chapter 318 Section 18 explains about traffic violation penalties. Not a word mentions my case was a major violation... It is same as other speeding as minor violation. The difference was points and amount penalties.. I wrote a formal letter to Checkr Inc. for the dispute progress, and I wrote a formal letter to Uber to reconsider my proposal an indepentable contractor relationship with Uber... Checkr Inc. responses me that they can't do anything about it, and I need to talk with Uber about it for them to consider because Checkr Inc. do not make a decision. Uber responses me that they can't do anything about it, and I need to talk with Checkr Inc about it for them to alter on my report. Both of them respond in the same way such as crossing. I contacted Uber Executives Support works for Travis. I received the same response like they do not care. I tried to explain them I was speeding because I was in rush to arrive work on time. I made a mistake lesson. I have one ticket ONLY in total 3 years of license history. ONE violation ONLY. They instantly denied me on my one license. Heartbreaking. Also, one of my good friend works with Uber; he got approved with his proposal contractor with Uber while he had two violations history in less than 1 year with speeding and reckless driver. He got tickets outside of his home state. I assume Checkr Inc. doesn't check outside of home state. When I'm on duty with Uber, I will take serious based on ensuring provides guests satisfy with my service I could get high rate. I do not want to risk my rate.... I contacted with Uber many times, and I get all response in the same way even Checkr Inc..... I felt disappointed. I'm considering to hire a lawyer to check with Clerk Court first if they consider me as major or minor violation. If they say my violation considered as major, I will discuss with them to make alters on my report. If Clerk Court considered my violation is a minor, I will start step two by law suiting Checkr Inc. for making a false report. If Checkr Inc has do nothing with my report and considered me as minor violation, I will start step three by law suiting Uber for discriminating me unfairly and unreasonable.......

What's on your thoughts... Any advice? Any help?

22 years old, you are a kid. 3 years of driving history is nothing. I am surprised Jame's River provides liability for Uber drivers Under the age of 25. You can't suit them. They are not hiring you. If it is remotely like the taxi company I lease from ( I have no idea), they run your info, in my case, the taxi company's insurance provider runs my license and if there would be a problem, they would tell the taxi company " we can not allow you to lease to this driver and continue to cover you". Something to that effect.

That is basically the gist. Uber has only been around for about five years. Five years isn't always. The only thing more heartbreaking than being denied to drive for Travis is to drive for him beyond the honeymoon. By the time you are a little older, your license clears up, who knows what will be there for you?

Marc -

Have you even looked at what Uber pays drivers in Jacksonville?
It's one of the lowest rates in the country - if not THE lowest: $0.75/mi.
You cannot possibly make any money driving Uber in Jacksonville unless you have a car that qualifies for higher service levels and rates.
Every UberX mile you drive you are LOSING money.
Your dream - if it came true - would be a financial nightmare.

...<putting my 'dad' hat on>...

You obviously are willing to work hard...
so focus on your current jobs.
Get the hell out of Chick-Fil-A and get more hours with Red Lobster - tell them you want to learn and advance.
They are owned by the Darden Restaurant Group and have enormous opportunities for growth and advancement within the corporation
(Olive Garden, Longhorn, Bahama Breeze, Capital Grill, Seasons52).

Work your way up there...
get full-time hours and BENEFITS, including health care and tuition reimbursement.

You are also obviously smart (except for the whole idiotic ridesharing thing), so
Get your butt in college - even if it's only one course a semester - even if it's online.

PLEASE forget about rideshare - at least for a few years.
One accident while doing Uber or Lyft could ruin you financially for years to come.

You don't know how lucky you are to have gotten that speeding ticket.

How strongly do I feel about this?
If I come down to Jacksonville and see you driving rideshare,
I'm going to pull you out of your car and whoop your ass.
You hear me?!

Michael - Cleveland I am a huge Prine fan. To sit with John Prine over a few beers would be a fine thing. Worse comes to worst, if the OP never heard of John Prine before, he can't say that now. What he does with that opportunity......... now that I believe is an opportunity.
Well, that's the way that the world goes 'round.
You're up one day, the next you're down.
It's a half an inch of water and you think you're gonna drown.
That's the way that the world goes 'round.

We have a bunch of drivers and at least one dispatcher who are big into John Prine. We had a dispatcher who was upset to find out he was going to miss a show nearby. During a slow stretch we would try to work broken lyrics into our drops and pickups. That was an example of an average night turning out quite pleasant.

Marc -

Please ignore those here talking about paragraphs and spacing.

They have missed that your post contains three distinct paragraphs
which make exceptionally creative use of white space.

They simply do not understand 'stream of consciousness' writing.

I don't think it's worth the time and effort in trying to change their minds.

I'm pretty sure ANY traffic moving violations would count as a denial by Uber.

From what I learned from them is that anything that can be used against Uber, they will do without. Hiring with somebody with any type of traffic violations would look really bad on them if something happens to one of their passengers in their drivers car that had a previous speeding ticket, red light, I would even think the media will even point out parking tickets. lol They have so many other drivers they can choose from that don't have any negative marks on their records, so why would they go out of their way to accommodate you? They won't. People get deactivated from poor ratings from passengers who should not be part of the rating system at all. Does Uber listen to the deactivated drivers reasons and excuse? ummm... no.

With that said, don't feel too bad man. You are not missing out on much to drive for Uber.
As you see the majority on here are not happy and more so if you are a full time driver.

Don't get me wrong, some people do make it work, and some areas are better than others, but they are the minority.
