Some drivers are making $3000 a week doing 40 hours of work while the rest are making less than $1500 due to BS promos they get while others don't. I have been reading this forum for months and that is my observation. Drivers who don't take passengers for long trips, kick passengers out of their cars, etc. get more incentives while the guys who just do their job regularly don't get anything. I don't know how UBER can't get sued for this. They should. They are literally knit picking everything for certain drivers lol its hilarious and no one seems to care. Plus no one actually shares their ways of doing things on this forum since everyone only cares for their own pocket and all I see is trolling or useless info. What a world we live in. I am truly disgusted.
Are you a new driver? There are definitely tricks to making money on the platform and it is not a situation where all of us can pull in the good payouts. Generally speaking, you need to do the opposite of what Uber tells you to do.
1.Never accept pool unless you have found a way to exploit it.
2.Never drive base rate unless you have a guarantee or incentive.
3.Never trust the guarantee without reading ALL the fine print.
4.Filter all pings unless you are trying to work a guarantee or incentive.
Other than that, you still have to be a good driver.
1.Keep a pretty clean car.
2.Know your way around the city.
3.Provide decent customer service.
4.Park in a good spot to wait for pings.
At the end of the day, there is only so much money to go around and there are hundreds of drivers everywhere at any given time. The few who know the game well enough can make a profit and the rest are paying to drive people around. Keep close tabs on your actual expenses and don't stop looking for a real job. Even those guys who are pulling in good payouts know that the company can change the rules at any time.
