I was barely doing okay before UBER (worst partner ever) cut the rate to 90 and removed the $1 re-embersment. Saturday I worked 13 hours, did nearly non-stop rides, and made $110 with 30 dollars worth of gas burned. So, $70 dollars for 13 hours work - $5.28 or something like that an hour. (not including car depreciation and maintenance). UBER is taking advantage of us desperate for income in a horrible economy. Plus they advertise more for drivers than they do for riders. Plus they tell riders "tip included." These greedy, stupid bastards should burn in hell.
Every time I re-adjust my strategy and work hours to make ends meet, UBER finds a way to further undercut its "partners." Not only this, but they have obviously adjusted the surge levels so that it hardly surges in Phoenix anymore. I have been driving since December so I know. I used to clear 1200 if I worked 40-50 hours a week. Last week I worked over 60 hours and made $500 not including the gas, so I probably made around 350-400. Horrible company, horrible, greedy management and owners, and as soon as I get a job I will give UBER the finger.
