[UBER], Your account has been flagged multiple times for having too low of an acceptance rating. Being online with the Uber application means you are willing to accept trip requests. If you ignore two trip requests in a row, we will take this as an indication that you do not want to be online with Uber, and will log you off the system for 10 minutes. If you change your mind and decide that you do want to be online, you will be able to go back online after 10 minutes.

I received this text from them. Now when i ignore teo request in a row, i will get booted and unable to accept rides for 10 mins. I can no longer get the surge request i want because if i get a request out of surge zone then i will have to take it. After 3 years with them this is how im treated. I thought we were independent contractors and can choose to reject a job if we wanted to. This is employee shit right here. Im so glad i found a better job starting the end of this month so i can say bye bye to this company

I hope that they do continue to hire mass drivers that way when everybody that drives for them understands how they treat drivers, word of mouth will spread and nobody will want to drive for them thus collapsing themselves to the ground and are only left with shitty drivers

Just accept it then immediately cancel it. It shows up as accepted that way
But then they will flag my accouny with too many cancelled rides and suspend my account. I know it happend to a couple of people already.

Haha...judging by the fact that there are drivers willing to accept pings 69 minutes away.... and who would drive at any rate...that is highly unlikely...truth be told no matter what rate they lower to, there will be people willing to drive...just for that weekly check...that cheese...even if they know they lost money to get jt...it's still the weekly check that attracts so many.... desperate people..

Problem is you can only eat your car for so long before it turns to dust. Not to mention the quality of these drivers is such that it will drive away a number of pax. Eventually it WILL collapse but not until after Travis squeezes every dime he can out of it.

Uber ignores contract law just as much as it ignores legislated law.

Thus, despite you not being contractually obligated to accept any percentage of requests sent to you, Uber doesn't give a S### and expects you to anyway.
And thats why all the good drivers will eventually run away because if you take away the most important thing that matters to most drivers which is the surge than that is it. They basically made getting surge rides more difficult to for me. Im pretty sure Im not the first.

you have been warned for ignoring pings... so that is not the way to go. Accept, Cancel, "other"... see how that works, it works for me.
I agree it does work but I have received a couple warnings from them regarding numerous cancelling but havent received any drawbacks from it but i heard they have suspended a couple accounts due to the driver cancelling alot of times. Yes, we can accept than cancel but for how long until uber takes action and suspend the accout

If you or some one else is doing A LOT of canceling, then why are you even driving in the first place? You just giving money to another driver.

Keep it at 3 per day, and you will be fine.

Been trying this Uber driver stuff out for a month now.

See their ads everywhere (and the Lyft ads) about the income potential.

Wow, what a lie it's all been.

The extremely low driver fares are comical and sad, and the expectation of riders to get a 'five star experience' while I get ZERO star payout ($4.80 for flat pay trips) considering time involved, gas, wear and tear, obnoxious passengers and the openly rider-biased Uber rating system)).

How does anyone paying 7 dollars TOTAL before Uber/driver split (for short trip), for dropping off 4-7 people safely, jump in your vehicle and act like they own it (turning radio up FULL BLAST with gangsta rap, refusing to not bring open containers into the vehicle, and climbing over seats to get in rather than acting like an adult and moving seats as designed) EXPECT to be given a 5 star ride?

The low fares have brought out the classless, the drunks and the stooges who believe the little money they pay AFFORDS them the right to do as they please in YOUR CAR.

Try doing ANY of that stuff on public transportation, or in a city cab, and see what it gets you.

Here's the real rub, though.

It's TOO LATE for any of my thoughts on this to matter.

UBER
is designed to driver-less platform, which will happen faster than most of us realize, and the current driver payouts are beyond degrading, and riders are being trained to expect HUGE service for those laughable driver fares.

Lyft is no better, and these 'ride sharing' services are really beating down the very people making them work, the drivers.

Think about this the next time you drive 10 to 12 minutes to pick up your riders, spend 5 minutes or more waiting on them to even THINK about coming out to the car, drive them 8-10 minutes to another bar, spend another 5 minutes helping them all get out, while being polite and friendly:

"They will spend more than YOUR fare portion on the first mixed drink they buy at the new bar, and every drink after, all while you MADE 4.80 cents for half an hour of your time, before gas, and your cars wear and tear".

THEN they will give you a low rating score because you said (politely and firmly) "NO, you can't blare Gansta rap in MY CAR, while I drive you, nor can you crawl over my seats rather than slide them forward, or bring your alcohol along for the ride".

Oh, and now I understand that the UBER - 'independent contractor' relationship will NO LONGER allow me to cancel rides I think are too far away, or worth canceling based on my experience with the areas the ping came from.

So I no longer can DECIDE for myself whether to accept or cancel a ride based on MY PROFIT potential, without fear of being deactivated, because UBER doesn't want the rider to have a bad UBER experience, for their 4.80 cent payout on average, flat rate rides.

The clue bird flew over me pretty quick on this 'Ride Share' scam.

Riders wins big, cause they get more drinking money due to stupid low fares

Uber wins bigger, cause they are valued at 50 BILLION through last week.

Drivers, well, you're gonna be extinct soon anyway.

At a 50 BILLION dollar valuation, it doesn't matter to UBER what drivers think.

A 3rd world driver will GLADLY work for 8-10 dollars an hour, before car expenses, and be thankful for being abused by customers in their own car, while being rated a 3 or less stars.

Me, not so much.

:cool:
