Uber is asking drivers if they want to be movers and do other tasks

Uber is gauging its drivers’ interest in providing TaskRabbit-like services for consumers and potentially other businesses, Recode has learned.

The $69 billion company sent out an email to drivers asking if they’d be willing to take on other on-demand jobs — such as cleaning, moving, or food service.

The email, which came from the company’s research department, reads:

“We would like to ask about your interest in receiving requests from Uber to perform other types of tasks on a flexible basis. Task requests would be similar to ride requests from Uber. A request would be sent through the Uber app for a task. If interested, an Uber partner would accept the request and then travel to meet the request at the specified task location.”

The email then links to a survey which asks what would be the lowest hourly pay a driver would accept for the following tasks: Healthcare services, moving services, customer service, retail, cleaning services, clerical tasks, warehouse tasks, food service tasks.


Uber declined to comment for this story.

Physical labor, cooking dinners and changing catheters - all at $0.10/minute. Sign me up!

This cannot be real. It sounds like corporate has been reading too many of saduber's misadventures...
There are traveling nurses that do this sort of thing already just floating where needed whenever they feel like working now they do get paid much better than what you are suggesting but I see no reason why Uber could not jump in and dispatch such people who are qualified and willing to work with places that are wanting them for just a shift.

Who the hell moves while wearing a polo shirt and slacks...and with a big smile to cap it all off? No. Just no.

I'm waiting for "Uber Army." The military will be taken over by people willing to do the job cheaper so they can "show them how it's done." You know....like they did with the taxi industry. ;-)
I am waiting for Uber Doctor. If I mess that up I will try Uber Undertaker.

That is actually a pretty good idea Uber temp agency. Some employer has someone call in sick for the day and needs someone to cover that shift, they list their requirements and Uber matches their requirements with available people with the correct skill set to see if there are any takers.
If Uber doesn't stop cheating drivers by taking 40%+ of fares with their up-front pricing scam, I know of several million pax who will be using this new service to list their requirement for an Uber driver!
