As you can imagine working for Light Underwater involves a fair amount of travel.
As a company we have an account with uber and I must say the reliability is second to none.
I also can’t fault the customer service, the drivers seem happy in their work, which leads me to believe this is a good company to work for as a driver.
In this article I wanted to take a closer look at what it takes to become an uber driver and the pros and cons of working for the company:
The Good And The Bad?
As any other job, it is up to you to determine whether it is worth it or not. Here are some of the pros and cons of being a uber driver.
1. It provides a flexible working hours for the drivers. Just turn on the phone app when you want to work and turn it off when you feel like it.
2. You meet new people everyday and have an opportunity of social interaction as you will encounter people from different demography traveling for different reasons.
3. You are your own boss and can listen to music or news while you are working. Can’t do that in most jobs these days.4. During big events and holidays, you can use the “Surge” function enabling you to increase your fare and land a bigger paycheck.
1. Due to the popularity of uber, there are a lot of drivers increasing competition for you. As a result, sometimes you might make a lot lesser money than you ought to. You also don’t receive any tip for your service.
2. All the car expenses fall on you, leading to significant cost on repairs and maintenance.
3. While working solo is fun, sometimes you would ant to interact with fellow employees.
Unfortunately, uber doesn’t facilitate interactions with the other drivers.
