I would not be surprised if Michael Vayner was just simply fired. Nothing ever seem to get done. He started a photo booth business and it did not take me long to see that he was advertising that while he was doing promotions for getme.
Here is an example:
You may say.. well, he probably told them because why would he post it on facebook? Well, there has been complete radio silence from get me on this group page, leading me to believe that they do not have access to this group for drivers. I may of sent this same photo to another manager I found through facebook and this particular manager ended up telling me "thank you so much, this is really helpful"
The fact that the website still says they are in Houston and I can still log in, really leads me to believe hew as fired. As for no drivers being onboarded? It has been this way for at least a few months (why onboard drivers when you have to pay to get them background checked and there are no rides?)
Anyhow, I was hoping getme could of been a viable alternative to Uber before Lyft came. With lyft here, it makes it that much harder, but I would not say impossible but they really need someone to go in and grab the marketing aspect by the horns. I honestly felt like Michael Vayner was just there to collect a paycheck, especially after he started to work on his photo booth company more than getme.
But yea, it sucks his place flooded. I am not giving him money though.
Anyhow, hopefully they can hire someone
