Uber Doesn't tell you...

    Being new with Uber, it seems like the only clue you get as to the location of a delivery is a brief glimpse of the area map and an estimated time. Is there a way to pinpoint it better? I accepted a delivery in downtown cleveland yesterday that I probably would not have taken had I known exactly where it was at. Also, I would like to keep within a certain area outside Cleveland. The quick look at the map you get isn't very informative. By limiting the time to ten minutes or less, it seemed to help keep me in that area better. Any advice? thanks in advance!

    If you don't like it, cancel the delivery. Reason: "too far away" (or something like that). Then turn that delivery junk off, difficult to average even min wage, and tips are basically non-existant.

    If you have the Uber app run in the background then the exact address of the pickup location will pop up

    I've tried to explain this like 10 times around here but it's just too complicated for some brains to process so I don't even bother bringing it up anymore.

    Don't let them discourage you. Find out the hard way like the rest of us. Then come here and commiserate. And beer.

    Wal-Mart is making us look bad and raising their minimum wage to $11 nationwide I just read. Plus 1k bonuses for all employees over 1 year.

    Most of the time the time estimates are accurate but every once in a while the app does try to fool you into taking a long distance job with sneaky tricks. I've had an upside down map once with "7 mins" showing but once I accepted it flipped over and the time to restaurant showing 14 minutes.
    I hate it when I'm sitting in a spot with busy restaurants 3 to 7 minutes away and the app just keeps giving me 11 to 14 minute away... When they start doing that I just turn off and go home.
