This is a joke. Driving for Uber you are literally a god damn slave. I'm pissed that I leased the car to figure this out, but I'm happy I didn't buy it and stuck with payments for the next 3 years. This "job" is so obviously for those in a desperate situation where they see the "dream" of getting a brand new car (oh boy a new car!!!)! Then are lured into a lease payment where they pay 170 a week and it's like "good luck man! you're gonna need it!" I'm turning this extended god damn rental car into the dealership as soon as I hit my 30 day mark, and I'm going to proudly drive my beater around without paying a $600+ a month leasing fee. After only driving for 3 days I really feel sorry for people who have no alternative. This is literally slave labor. I spent 4 hours sitting in a parking lot near the airport, in que, for a 35-56 minute wait, and then waited the solid 4 hours it took for that took actually go down and then it actually got to 0 - 10 and I was like "finally, I mean it's 4 am and I've been waiting for four hours." Then something happened to make me go it went back up!!! LMAO It went back up to something like 17 - 30 minutes!! LMAO It was at this point that I was like "ok, yea, I'm not gonna be sitting here chasing their carrot that they won't let me catch like a moron. Taking someone to El Cajon for 18.99....seriously??? That's robbery. It took me 30 minutes to get up there....and 30 minutes to get back....so now I work for 19 bucks an hour? oh yea, you can probably take 3 bucks off of that for gas, and wear and tear on the car. Weeee!!! I made 16 bucks in one hour! Now I get to sit here and wait for an unknown amount of time till someone else riotously gives me another ride for 16 bucks an hour. People, the algorithm doesn't change unless you're in surge. You're making pennies, and of course you will have heads that you pick up at the grocery store with groceries, and then help them take them up stairs so they don't give you a 1 star rating, and then they will say "ok, thank you" as you have just OBVIOUSLY gone above and beyond your obligated service. Then you will have people where you offer to cut the ride short for taking a wrong turn, but you can't see the end point of the ride or how long it is in total so they will say "yea we are close" and then end up driving another 12 miles to drop their ass off.... kidding me. What a Surge is BS, they say "it surges because demand is high and we don't have enough supply!!" Ok, that sounds like it might make sense, but then WHY AM I SITTING IN QUE FOR A HOUR! The only thing that this service is good for is networking and selling home made . I'm going to use it as my own kiosk where I have a captured audience to sell my . You want a discounted ride? Well, just like the cruises you get for free but you gotta sit through a 3 hour presentation, you're gonna listen to my pitch and I'm gonna whip out y credit card swiper and I'm going to hard sell your ass. Because I honestly don't care about my rating, I'm done with this garbage scam ass company. Planning on going and looking for serving jobs. I don't need this I got a degree. I just thought it would offer me the flexibility I needed to continue on with my own business. However, it looks like I'll be bringing you queso at the Chili's near you!
