Uber diver

April 2018 • Phoenix, AZ

What I liked

I am able to begin and end my shift at any time on any day, I can take off as many days as I like, no minimum hours are required, and I usually earn between $15-$20 an hour to sit on my butt, drive around and talk to people about whatever we please.

What I wish was different

The only benefits it offers are roadside assistance and discounted car maintenance. They will cover tuition for ASU Online but only for very highly rated and experienced drivers.

Advice

Driving for Uber is an easy, relaxing and often fun job but it wont do much towards furthering your hopes/plans for a future career. However, being friendly and talking to people is a great way to make new connections and expand your network. And keep your car in good shape!
