I have been working at Uber (More than a year)

Pros

There are only two pros of working for Uber

*Flexible schedule* - This is mostly nonsense. If you want to get paid extra, you will work extra hours.

*Instant Pay* This is also nonsense. You make so little.

Cons

*Very rude customers
*Below minimum wage pay
*Entitled customers
*Work 7 days a week, 10-13+ hours a day to make a profit.
*Rating system.
*Indentured servitude level wages.
*Uber Pool

I notice a lot of positive reviews on Uber. I've yet to meet a driver in NYC, NYS, or NJ that likes Uber at all. I have a feeling these 'reviews' are done by a troll farm or Uber employees.

Advice to Management

Get rid of Uber Pool, ban low rated/problem riders, raise rates, stop onboarding so many drivers!
