    Hi all, my name is Paul, I'm a 24-year-old student from the south of Germany. I am looking for Interview partners, for a thesis written at the University of Augsburg: - The interviews would be held via Skype, around 45 minutes each - I would be offering compensation of 20$ per interview (via...

    So let me preface this by saying that there's a special place in hell for companies that build their brand by taking advantage of others (although this seems to be a familiar trend these days). This has turned out to be the biggest waste of time and money. Here's my story - I've been driving...

    Hi everyone, SO INCREDIBLY FRUSTRATED. My account has been on hold for over a week and I can't get an answer from Uber Support to save my life. An incident occurred where the lady was drunk and starting to get sick. I pulled over into a parking lot of an adult video store (closest place to...

    My question is... Does Uber Background check qualify driving with Learner's Permit as valid licensed driving experience? A learner's permit is literally a valid driver's license with restrictions "With that in mind, a learner's permit is permission to drive even though it comes with certain...

    TL;DR -- Don't use Lyft as a passenger. Use Uber. I went to the Sox game on Monday night so I parked in the city near Boston Common and decided to take a Lyft over to Fenway.. had to get the true rider experience. From this I learned two things: (a) Lyft as a passenger experience is horrible...

    I don't drive daytime (never have), but I have this week free of my normal schedule, so I'm giving it a try. Early this morning I got some surge rides and am now sitting out rush hour (also no surge where I'm at). Just questioning you all if surges pop up regularly in the daytime or is it pretty...
