FARLANCE or any other Uber Employee...here's your chance to educate us Drivers.

What is the Process for Deactivation as per Uber's written policy. Is this a corporate Nationwide policy? Is this a city by city policy? Is this left totally up to the local CSR? What is the review process for Driver's?

I really find it hard to believe that this process is not in writing as part of our Driver's "Handbook". I've read my Driver's "Handbook" from cover to cover and just can't find the process spelled out.

I am new to Uber Activated last Saturday. Yesterday I drove all morning, then went off line. At around 2:30 I tried to go back on line, was asked to log in, but got an error message: Login Failed your driver account has not been activated (this message has been continuous ever since).
I sent this to the zen desk at 3:30 yesterday, and still have heard nothing. If I have been Deactivated (I'm not sure why I would have been), or if there is something I need to do, it would be fair to let me know rather than not responding. Also, where do you find this Drivers Handbook?

AlinPhx didn't Logout himself but Uber logged him out won't let AlinPhx log back in for some reason.

1) Go to your Rider Dashboard
2) Is there a Red Flag next to your Profile or Vehicle Tab?
a) Inspection Report required?
b) Updated Driver's License or Vehicle Insurance required?
c) Could be legit reason or Uber mistake. Either way, needs to be fixed.

And I agree, it would be nice to get an email or better yet, a Text message that you will not be able to Log In until "XXX" has been resolved instead of scheduling your driving time and then surprise, you can't log in. Same with the recent Contract Addendum required before I could log in. Hard to read on my phone. If I new this was required, I would have checked it out on my computer at home.

Good luck and let us know what happens.

AlinPhx, really sorry. Thought the quotation marks/"Handbook" would convey my sarcasm that a Driver's "Handbook" does not exist. Same for a "policy" and "review process" for driver deactivation as far as I know. Thought Farlance might be able to give us a definitive answer being he is a CSR but haven't seen a post from him or any other Uber employee in this thread.

Uber is no different then all these other "non'-American corporate companies .Its great for the consumer , but the drivers have complained to me that they are being squeezed dry. T his company is no different than all the other companies that moved to mexico , china, and else where in order gain profits. This may not be the place for my review , but sure sucks seeing a good thing like uber turn into what it has today. Then again majority of these tech -geek companies have this type of issue where money isn't everything, despite having billions ,its treatment of employees that stems back to the playground I suppose. Anyway I rather walk then deal with these guys, the drivers are broke and my drank ass rather take a taxi, at least I can tip then.

YEAP , Travis , the uber founder , known in silicon valley , using very strict and "bulldozer" business models person which is allowed (but not sure in future). I think we should know better with the ...term and condition that we bounded as driver to (unless you sent email to uber to opt out)

So basically you can get a new driver fired on day one with a one star? GG uber. Don't let the local cabs find out. 1/2 mile, $4, 1star rides may turn into a profitable investment.

login into dashboard on the web, it will tell you active or not and you might be able to figure out why from there

UPDATE :

Related to OP 's post about warned / deactivated.

What happened to me : i was deactivated 1 month ago after drove for uber for 4 days. my last rating 4.43.
conclusion: I was too noisy and rude regarding about trip adjustment.
my side of story : customer asked extra stops and ineffective routes.
my sad side stories : 3 trips given credit free.
new update : an uber rep asked me to come to their office ( suppose to be today)
another uber rep asked me not to come , forget about thinking of reactivated

Final conclusion ..... : whoever replied uber drivers , dont give a shit or they dont know whatt actually they doing.
I may get reactivate next month , who knows ... i ll try email them again.

NOTE : Uber sent me two iphones with no particular reason at beginning of application.

HERE their email copy..100% real :
