Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Used to be very good, nowadays its not busy at all and making £100 a day feels impossible to do. Looking at all other costs involved in self employment eg car maintenance, tfl licences, insurance, accountant fees, its a must that you earn at least £150 a day.


Work when you want


If its not busy, you will be hours without any jobs

Wasn’t bad at all I wouldn’t say it’s the best as the waiting times to get the order is long, other than that it’s alright, they don’t send you too far when you have a bike and you get to take the money you earned the same day which is a very good benefit

Not the best

Could be so much better, but it's not. I used to be fairly happy when I first started.Lately nothing works the way it's meant to work so yeah.. not great. Getting half the money your rider pays.

Modern day slavery

They take up to 50% in commission sometimes. Long hours no idea how the algorithm works, they play with prices as they like, no respect for the drivers, I really do not have nothing good to say.

Private hire driver

But much to say about this role, long waiting between requests HUGE comision charge, sometimes you are doing 50/50 with Uber, lot's of stress because of the traffic

Good hours work when you want always got bonuses on, always socialising keeps you on your feet, time goes fast whilst you are driving when it is busy and you get orders coming through one after another the money stacks fast without realising. Can take money out when you want it for 50p or wait for weekly pay

Not bad but your just another number

Pay should be set to a higher minimum and then we would have no need to cherry pick job, really good parts is that you get holiday pay and can pick and choose jobs and start and finish time

Side gig. Pay has decreased as Uber takes more than they used to.

Doing this temporarily as I look for a new career. Good flexibility. But thrashing my vehicle for little pay. Going to try something else, soon. The positive is I can do this as I move between cities and avoid spending all my savings.




EVerything else.

A lot of good but the bad outways the good

Been with Uber for just over a year. Initially the earnings were pretty good.Over the course of this year earnigs have dropped considerally. Other local companies have increased fares in line with rising operating costs. Uber did not.with Ubers new dynamic pricing structure drivers are now earning even less.We do this job for the money.Everything else about Uber is good, pick and choose what jobs you want, work when you want, customers are better than the local companies as is is all in app card payments.


very easy to work


very poor earnings

Easy work but long hours, odd times.

Easy work if know your area. However there's no security at all, you can be deactivated instantly for silly reasons.Pay is completely rubbish considering the hours and days one must put in.Uber is always claiming that best drivers earn up to £30/hour, that however doesn't include any dead times between jobs, you can cash in £150 in 5 hours of continuous driving but you may well have other 5 hours of waiting times in between, totaling 10 hours of work for thise £150 cashed in.


Clean work


Long hours

Simple job, great flexibility

Just follow the app to pickups and drop offs. You can sign on to work whenever you want. Earnings are pretty good at the weekend. Great to supplement other income.

Slave labour

Working many hours for pay that is priced in 90’s very stressful and don’t listen to drivers very bad company will take more than the stated 25% commission




Long hours less pay

Longs hours for basic money

Everyone who thinks you'd be rich working for Uber, please think again. As a private hire driver since 2012, the beginning was good. However, fares have gone down now, expenses have gone up and now you'd be working long hours to make Little money.


Your own freedom


Long hors and less money

Its up to you how hard you work

You have to do the hours to get acceptable earnings. You can work when you want which is good but running a private hire vehicle is expensive . You need to keep the car clean and tidy which is more difficult in the winter.

Expect to work 60 hours per week

In a nutshell this job is good if you are looking for extra money on the side. To rely on this company as a full time job will require you work more than a 40.hour work week and be prepared to work unsociable hours.

Horrid company to sub from

The costs involved to become an Uber driver are not worth the reward. The PCO licence, tests, Drs cert, etc etc.Car insurance cost me £3,200 first year.Where will you start work having already spent over 4k to start at? NONE!!Good luck to all that want the Uber dream!
