The JOB of an UBER DRIVER

I am a FT Female Uber Driver for a year an a half. I GREATLY Appreciate when a Rider Tips Me!! UBER DRIVER don't Make the Money Riders think they do. Uber Drivers; Good Ones that Is are Really Taken Advantaged of By UBER THEMSELF as Well 90% of the Riders!! No one seems o Understand what it COST to Maintain our Vehicles'. As a Full Time Driver I put VERY HIGH MILAGE ON MY CAR any where from 500 to 800 Hundred MILES a WEEK!! Now with that comes Fuel , Oil Changes, Carwash a few Times a week!! Now on my own I provide Water, XM radio and Drive SRX Cadillac Luxury Fully Loaded. With that comes a Monthly Payment and My own Personal Insurance that is Required by Uber along with yearly Registration. And Uber DOES NOT HELP PAY FOR ANY OF IT!!! Yet they CONTINUE TO LOWER RATES on the DRIVERS END and RAISE THEM ON THERE END!! THEY DONT EVEN PAY FOR THE INSURANCE Which is CALLED YOUR SAFE RIDE FEE that COVERS RIDERS INCASE OF AN ACCIDENT WHILE A RIDER IS IN THE CAR!! Now There are about 4 BILLLION CARS ON THE ROAD all OVER THE WORLD Driving for UBER. And UBERS WORTH is 60 BILLION and CLIMBING, at the EXPENSE of the Drivers!! Don't get ME WRONG UBER IS A GREAT APP........ BUT HAS MANY FLAWS ALL AT THE RIVERS EXPENSE!! Let me EXPLAIN. #1. MOST RIDERS DONT USE THE APP CORRECTLY, Especially when they have BEEN DRINKING or NEW USERS/RIDERS this is Because of the APP SCREEN MOVES and THEY THINK that IT KNOW AUTOMATICALLY WHERE THEY ARE!! And Now Drivers GET SENT TO WRONG LOCATIONS and this COST DRIVER TIME AND FUEL and WE LOOSE GRANTEES IF ANY GIVEN BY UBER.. Then Drunk Riders Get Mad Cause THEY DONT THINK THERE WRONG; When I THE DRIVER Goes and Picks Them Up and TRIES To EXPLAIN what they did WRONG.. Which RESULTS in Bad RATINGS ON THE DRIVER. NOT TO MENSION RIDERS AREN'T AWARE That BAD RATINGS FOR A DRIVERS Can COSTS THEM THERE JOBS AS WELL!! #2 UBER DRIVER ARE REQUIRED TO OBEY THE LAW..And RIDERS seem to THINK ITS OK TO OVER CAPACITATE and HAVE OPEN ALCOHOL. So when YOU DENIED THEM MOST WILL GET MAD and AGAIN RESULTS IN BAD RATING FOR DRIVERS!! #3 Riders LEAVING BELONGINGS BEHIND and EXSPECT DRIVERS TO STOP WHAT THERE DOING which Could Also MEAN WORKING to BRING it to THEM!! Again THIS COSTS THE DRIVER TIME AND MONEY and If you REFUSE this to will RESULT IN BAD RATINGS FOR THE DRIVER. MOST RIDERS Will PROMISE YOU THE WORLD In ORDER to Get you Come RIGHT BACK or MEET THEM SOMEWHERE THE NEXT DAY and of COURSE 95% WILL NOT KEEP THERE WORD!! # 4...About 50% of RIDERS Feel it's OK FOR THEM TO TURN ON THE AIR OR CHANGE The STATIONS put THEIR FEET UP IN MY FACE ON THE CONSOLE TRYING TO HAVE SEX IN THE BACK SIT OR DOING DRUGS YOUR CAR WITHOUT ASKING or Even a Thought!! THIS IS INSANE?? WHAT DO THINK??? When I asked Them to Please Not Touch anything and That I will do it or PEASE DONT PUY YOUR FEET UP They Get OFFENED! Guess WHAT it RESULTS IN POOR or BAD RATINGS on THE DRIVER. #5 REMEMBER I AM A FEMALE DRIVER and I CANT BEGIN TO TELL YOU WHAT I GO TROUGH WITH 20% of MALE RIDERS even WHEN There's ANOTHER WOMAN IN THE CAR!! THE FILTHY THINGS THEY TALK ABOUT ASK ME / TO DO ..SOMETIMES SO WAY OUT OF LINE that I have to PULL OVER and Throw THEM OUT OR CALL POLICE BECAUSE THEY WONT GET OUT!! Then They TREATHEN ME About RATING ME call ME EVERY NAME IN THE BOOK ..SLAM DOORS ..SPIT on my CAR I even HAD ONE THROW A DRINK on MY CAR!! Now I Could GO ON, But I'm Sure You can UNDERSTAND My POINT! YET UBER PRETTY MUCH DOSE NOTHING All They DO is THANK ME for WRITING IN ABOUT these RIDERS Which TAKES TIME and AGAIN WE DONT GET PAID FOR IT!! SO WHEN I HAVE A RIDER THAT TIPS ME , WHICH IS ONLY ABOUT 3% of RIDERS I SURE DO THANK AND PRAISE THEM!! IT MAKE ME FEEL LIKE THEY CARE ABOUT ME / APPRECIATE ME!! ((( BECAUSE UBER SURE DONT!! ))))))) NOW If a RIDERS IS ON A SURGE of 3X and Going MORE THEN 10 MIES I DONT THINK A TIP IS NEEDED. Just THEM EXCEPTING A SURGE THAT HIGH IF NOT INTOXCITED Shows Me They APPRECIATE UBER DRIVERS!! And I have WENT OVER AND OVER THIS WITH UBER and NOTHING EVER GETS DONE!! And THEY HAVE NO RIGHT TO TELL RIDERS TIPS ARE INCLUDED and NOT NESSARY It SHOULD BE THRIDER CHOICE and There SHOULD BE A TIPPING AREA IN THE APP!! But Here's MY OPINION The REASON UBER DONT CARE IS FOR ONE THEY MADE THERE FORTUNE and HOPING BY 2020 to HAVE DRIVERLESS CARS ON THE ROAD and then THEY WONT NEED US. Which I CANT EVEN IMAGINE HAVING NO DRIVERS With All THAT GOES ON.......... So Debbie If YOU FEEL YOUR DRIVER DID A WONDERFUL JOB GETTING YOU TO YOUR DESTINATION , I'm SURE HE WOULD HAVE BE GREATFUL For YOUR GRATUITY. THANKS FOR USING UBER and ASKING! Sincerely Brenda......

How to Move Forward.

If you want to move forward in your job, here is how. #1. Never utter the words "that's not my job." This is one way to earn the ire of your bosses. This phrase will give them one of two opinions. First being you think you are better then others, the second that you are lazy. At any place of you need to accept everything is your job, From filing to changing trash. #2. Keep it professional. Sharing personal information with your coworkers is a no no. No one will promote you if they think making friends is more important to you then your job. I am not saying to be unfriendly, but forging close, personal relationships with your coworkers will make your boss think that you can't make the hard decisions, remember it is a workplace not high school. #3, Stay out of the drama Another reason why you don't get personal. It will be used. If you think there are not people out there waiting for you to mess up, and to throw it in your face, you are niave. If someone tries to start an argument, walk away. Remember you are an adult, that is an option. If you lower yourself to that level, it will be you who is noticed at a troublemaker. Who looks worse, the person yelling at someone quietly working, or two people having a verbal brawl in a professional workspace. #4, Ask to learn If there is something you don't know how to do, ask. Your employer will appreciate it. Employers like a go better, someone who is willing to listen and apply what they have learned. This also makes them aware of your desire without saying it out right. The only way to move forward is to is to get on their radar. This is the best way.

So my boyfriend and I almost got scammed while looking for an apartment this weekend. He replied to a craigslist ad we posted saying that he had a place to show us immediately and wondered if we could make an open house between 2pm and 4:30pm. It was already 5:20pm when he sent us the times for the open house (flag #1). The guy (who later identified himself as Jovan after we asked) said he was already out of town but my boyfriend and I were welcome to drive by the place (in a very nice part of town) and if we liked it, then he would send us photos. He said he would rent it out to us for $1,000 a month (which was a steal for the area) and asked us to put down $1,000 to reserve our spot (flag #2) (we did not put up the money). Instead we asked him more questions. He kept pushing for someone to just move in or he was going to list the place with his realtor because he had already left the state and needed the property gone (flag #2). We said we liked the place but we wanted to see the inside and asked him to call the leasing office so they could show us the place. Instead, he emailed us photos that has a little logo in the lower left hand corner, that were OBVIOUSLY taken from the website for the place (flag #3). Then the guy got scared and started getting defensive, saying we weren't serious about the place when my bf cc'd me in the emails.

This was a well-spoken person with minimal spelling/ semantic mistakes, who was nearly convincing in his lies about being a doctor who moved to live with family and just wanted to help. This man even said he was a Christian and wanted to help us out with our situation! ? Thank GOD for my mother and my bf who thought to ask so many questions because I was almost ready to give this guy $1,000 PLUS the $2,000 more he asked for 1st and last months rent. My bf spoke to a fiend of his and apparently housing scams like this are picking up a lot more due to so many people not being able to find housing due to COVID. PLEASE be careful. ASK questions. If something seems too good to be true then it probably is!!!

INTERVIEWS: (No. #3. Mistakes To Avoid) Appearance. *Men Tennis Shoes

READ THIS PLEASE! (Small things can make a big difference.)

We are living in a time filled with much exaggeration and everything becomes possible beyond your wildest dreams and imagination!

I've been very fortunate to have been the Chairperson on many interviewing panels and still today, I'm always amazed at what I see. If you think that on a beautiful day in spring, looking out the window watching the birds play, that someone won't walk into your interview with tennis shoes. Think again! Because it happens with both men and women!

Privately, I usually ask the board members to consider the fact that, most likely someone failed to train the individual on what board members look for.

TURNKEY: Become fully aware of what types of footwear may seem appropriate at your next interview. Then, exercise good judgment in meeting those requirements. You only get one chance for a good impression.

I Believe You Can...!

DON'T ALLOW OTHERS...! [IBYC]

I'm telling you the truth...

People seek out others not simply for conversation, companionship or positive counseling. Rather, to find out your availability for unscheduled listening time in the workplace.

Do you know why? To "dump the trash" out of their lives into the empty trash can of your life. Does that make sense?

3 - KEY TIPS: #1. Keep your personal business to yourself. #2. Don't tell other people about your affairs. #3. Evaluate your friendships with a fine tooth comb.

In other words, don't allow others to dump their trash in your life.

I Believe You Can...!

FIVE THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN YOU WANT TO SUCCEED!

Many small things hold us back in life, then, it literally becomes more difficult to achieve a "single" goal. However, here are five things to consider about succeeding in life:

DO THIS...PLEASE!

#1. SOMETIMES...you have to separate yourself from the people who don't believe. #2. SOMETIMES...you have to swim alone, rather than swimming with the crowd. #3. SOMETIMES...you have to look at where you are, then, decide where you want to go. #4. SOMETIMES...you have to stop listening to the chatter, and do what really matters. #5. SOMETIMES...you have to take that LEAP of FAITH, to avoid that coming FATE.

*The greatest barrier to SUCCESS is not making that change.

I Believe You Can...!

3 - MAJOR STOPS YOU MUST MAKE...! [IBYC]

I'm telling you the truth...(MUST READ W/O FAIL)

People generally sabotage their own lives and barricade themselves into a position where: A) Nothing good ever comes to them in life. B) Because nothing good ever comes from them in life. Do you know anyone that fits that description? Hmm...

Three (3) - Majors Stops You MUST Make In Life: #1. STOP damaging your self-esteem with negative thoughts and talks that breaks you down. #2. STOP finding faults about yourself everytime you look in the mirror. #3. STOP judging yourself because you're not somebody else's insensitive standards.

WHY? Because you are BEAUTIFUL just the way you are. Write down this powerful morning affirmation and repeat it at least 3 times each day: "I am all I have; I am all I need; If I really try hard, God will help me succeed."

YOU HAVE GREATNESS IN YOU...! [IBYC]

I'm telling you the truth...

Many people will live almost a lifetime not ever discovering their true self-worth, value and purpose in life. Really, that is an absolute shame.

Many times to find the greatness within you means:

STEP #1. Setting aside personal time for YOU. STEP #2. Having a wholehearted conversation with YOU. STEP #3. Knowing what you want in life for YOU. STEP #4. Establishing those short-term goals for YOU. STEP #5. Digging deep inside to bring your greatness to the surface of life.

You owe this to YOURSELF.

I Believe You Can...!
