Overall Reviews at Uber

Facility Coordinator | San Francisco, CA | Oct 17, 2019
It was the best job I had and worked there over 5 years. I never should have left that job to go to a contract position at CBRE. Since I was told it would have been a good career move and believed what I was told I did. Two months later I resigned there should be laws against what was done to me.

Eyes open
Uber is a great company with a lot of potential, but its also a bit of a mess with regard to direction right now. Every new headline drives internal changes and whiplash is common unfortunately.
Program Manager | Washington, DC | Nov 5, 2019
Learned a lot within the 5.5 years I was there
Having the autonomy to truly learn and grow has been a blessing. Worked along side the most incredible people, and they taught me so much more than I could ever imagine.

this was a fun company to work for
This was a fun company to work for as your view changed daily. The clients made the rides worth while. Being able to travel daily for work also helps make the trips exciting.

Flexible Work
The job is remarkable in the sense that it affords you flexibility! Other than that, you must work too many hours in order to be able to earn enough, and avoid the need to have other supplemental jobs!
Customer Service Representative | Washington, DC | Jan 26, 2020
Uber provides employees with a flexible schedule. A employee can also learn different cultures and communication skills within different cultures with passengers. A employee can also gain insight in different areas of life and careers via passengers. Uber is a great job to gain emotional intelligence and growth through contact with other individuals.
Plan Manager | Phoenix, AZ | Sep 4, 2018
Misguided Company Culture
Uber would be a great place to work, less the fact the company is "broish" in nature with highly misguided cultural values that drive the company. Often mangers are rewarded/promoted for projects that are not in scope with their primary responsibilities leaving their team to suffer without support while the manager him/herself (more often him) moves forward.
Driver (Independent Contractor) | Boston, MA | Feb 19, 2020
A great flexible company, that allows you to work at your pace and make your own hours. A great company for anyone that loves to drive, whether full time or part time

What shift makes more money?
Asked Aug 1, 2016
I make $300 a day in New Jersey, I usually start at 7am, take my lunch break at 2, and finish up around 5;30 and head to the gym. I work like this on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. On Wednesday I have a “short day” and only make $150, usually I’m done by noon. I don’t do weekend rides because I’m not cleaning up puke or being harassed. I spend about $150 a week on gas (which is really why I work a short day on Wednesday, that way it doesn’t impact my nice paycheck), and I have a monthly subscription car was that’s $16 for unlimited washes. I put away $500 a month for car repairs. My car insurance is $139 (it didn’t go up when I started driving for Uber), and my car payment is $289 a month (which I’d be paying anyways). I have health insurance/dental/vision which totals about $117 a month. All my expenses are tax write offs that offset what I have to pay at the end of the year which I don’t mind. This isn’t my career, but I’m doing this because they pay for my college and it makes it so I can afford my rent and lifestyle. I had a restaurant job before this and wasn’t making nearly enough to survive, and Uber gave me an out. You have to work hard and Hussle, but know there’s an end to it. Don’t go into this thinking it’s going to be your career. It’s a great start and I recommend it for anyone trying to survive while they figure their life out.

Every Uber driver I’ve talked to in Dallas says they avg $200/day by choice, as in, that’s the quota they set for the day and go home after they’ve cleared $200. It seems they start between 4-5am on the weekdays, make the bulk of their money by 10am, and then slog there way to the finish line, generally finishing up between 2 and 4pm. I don’t know how they adjust, or if they do, for fri and sat nights.

How are the working hours at Uber?
Asked Jun 14, 2016
That’s like asking what is the avg temperature in a National forum. Every market is different. In Cheyenne, WY, drivers are making $100,000/year. Meanwhile, a driver working longer hours in Vegas would be better off flipping burgers. The Dallas drivers that were pros and had nice clean cars have all told me the same thing, nearly word for word. They start about 4-4am and set themselves a cap of $200/day. They say they make the bulk of that $200 by 10am and then generally have to slog their way across the finish line, generally between 2-4pm. Again, these are the pros. Friendly, newer or nicer cars(5yrs old and newer) and they had a plan. You have other drivers who don’t seem to like it as much. They’re generally dressed more like its laundry day, their cars aren’t as clean, and they seem to be doing it part time or, at the very least, just winging it. I’ve only spoken to 2 Uber Black drivers and they both said they’re making well over six figures and not working nearly as long as the uberX crowd.
