After giving uber driving a fair chance and analysis (about a month of driving) I've decided that I don't want to support or be apart of this business practice any longer. Some personal takeaways from this experience: 1. This isn't worth doing full time. It may be the timing but the expenses (especially on your body and your car) vs the income just isn't worth it for me. Sure you can drive long hours, but If I'm gonna drive that long I might as well drive trucks and make way more doing it. 2. Uber doesn't understand the driver/passenger dynamic. I am guilty of this, but the only reason people use this service is that it's cheap and convenient. If it wasn't cheap then there would be no reason to use it. It's due to this that the quality of most passengers will be subpar. (this is especially true with younger adults/college students) I understand that customer service is king when it comes to competition but to ask an uber driver to go far beyond what the taxi services offer(for 1/4 of the cost) is just ignorant. Customers don't care about the conversation, they only care that they're paying you less. Stop getting it twisted. It's due to this cheapness that passengers perceive uber drivers in a negative light. People will savor a $50 steak, but will easily scoff down a $5 one. This leads me to 3. 3. You're easily dispensable // The floodgates are wide open To uber, you're just a statistic. I'm quitting but I'll just be replaced by a thousand would be hopefuls. It isn't competitive, but it is overcrowded. It's only getting worse. For those who love doing this and driving people around, go be a taxi driver. At least you'd be working for people with fair business practices. For those that have nothing better to do, go back to school.
