They see them as soon as you have entered them which is usually long before they rate you. Another idiot giving people 4 stars because they do not tip.This weekend began giving 4 ratings to people that defiantly could afford to tip but didn't, and noticed that my rating for the week went down. Does anyone know when do the passengers see the rating I give them?
I have noticed the reciprocity in ratings: when I have to rate riders low, I end up getting low ratings.I have given some 4 star ratings lately as well.. but mainly if they make me wait too long or if they smell bad.
One guy was eating in my car and left a bunch of orange peels in the back cup holders.. I gave him 3 stars.
I have noticed that my rating went from a 4.93 to a 4.89 over that time period though.. so there might be some way they are checking their ratings before they rate us.. not sure.
Honestly I do not think they can. I only said they do as an idiotic answer to an idiotic reaction to getting no tips. Frankly I do not care how others rate their pax or what level they will not accept a request. But to use any form of social media to announce what you do is just plain stupidI have noticed the reciprocity in ratings: when I have to rate riders low, I end up getting low ratings.
This is my explanation for it: pax is aware he/she is getting low rating. pax retaliates to feel good.
For example, the guy who left orange peels in our car, he knew that was not a good thing. He probably knew he would get low rating anyways. He rated you to get even.
I got a stinky lady yesterday on a long and nice fare. She came out of her apartment and into my car with a can of some sort of spray at and, spraying herself the entire time as she approached my car. I knew this was not going to be good. But, I had invested 15 minutes time already from when I accepted the trip to when she showed in front of the car. She reeked pot and she knew it. What she did to musk it made things worse, this time there was a mix of 2 terrible smells and I am reactive to strong odors of any sort. I had terrible headache during the trip and entre day from that. Still I 4 starred her and did not want to hurt her rating too much. I am sure she did not give me 5 star. She knew she was a complete mess and I was aware of it.
Yes, riders who deserve low ratings tend to be jerks and give low ratings to the driver. Guess what? Even if you give them 5 stars that they don't deserve, they will still likely rate you low, because they are jerks.This is my explanation for it: pax is aware he/she is getting low rating. pax retaliates to feel good.

I like that: now you see it, now you don't ! Turn on Lyft app! I needed this distraction. Never thought of it n this context. Thanks" Have a nice day/night " as I hit 5 stars and turn on Lyft app.
Drive off and adjust to proper rating.
( shhhhhh, it's not a 5 )
If rider requests rating before every trip, he can find out whether you rated him low or not. Based on that finding he can then retaliate. Uber made requesting rating available through the app. As more pax catch up, every low rated person will retaliate even more.If the rider doesn't ride several times a day, they can notice the low rating you gave. I had a text from my last rider the next day that said "My rating will go up faster than yours will". I gave him a 3 for bicchin about traffic when he made me go against my instincts trying to get to CLW beach. My rating dropped from 4.69 to 4.56 for 30 days, so he must have 1* me. Is there a way to prevent this from becoming like the old days of the eBay feedback retaliation?
