nigger using uber eats instead of a restaurant's own delivery service is a level of retardation that should keep you in a padded cell for life. it's not only more expensive, but it takes longer, will be cold, and it's way more likely that someone eats your food.

Even if you make $40k, how many hours a week is that?

>> No.14902200

>>14902182
Kek, I’m going to take advantage of the situation so long as it presents itself. I’d rather all these worthless gig workers all quit to do something important with their lives and I’d be forced to venture to the restaurant myself.
But that won’t happen because people are too damn retarded.
So they’ll continue to take gig jobs that barely pay enough to cover the cost of wear and tear on their car and they’ll think they’re winning because they can make their own hours.

It's worth it. My take home pay is double what I used to earn doing big chain pizza delivery and there's almost no actual work involved. No cleaning, no crackwhore tranny coworkers, no schedule, no shitty fatass boss, and no getting paid 3 bucks an hour to bust ass for no tips. All I do now is pick up, deliver, and listen to tunes for about 20 bucks an hour.

Buddies of mine do Amazon Flex and it can be very good money during really busy times, plus if you do the grocery delivery you make tips too. During slow times though they have a hard time getting any blocks, so they do Uber. Taxi driving honestly makes much less, maybe 10-12 bucks an hour because you have to pay the company for the vehicle and Uber/Lyft take all the business anyway.

They did. It used to be $3 minimum for every trip and now it's $2.50 but I'm not surprised. No doubt more people have joined due to unemployment and they're just adjusting to that swelling in workers. This is why I'm so happy we can see what we'll be tipped now. No way I'm picking up an order that will cost me 25 minutes and wear and tear on my vehicle for $2.50 when less than a minute I'll get pinged for an $8 order.

Moral of the story: it starts with the customer. If you tip well chances are you'll get great service.

driver here, this. if i see a decent amount come up for an order, i'll bust ass, and speed like a maniac (within reason) to get your order to you with as much extra shit as i can get from the store. if it's slow, and i decide to take a lowball cheapass degenerate order, i'll get there when i get there, also those orders do not receive a spot in my hot bag, just fyi.

>> No.14903884

That's because your market is shit. In order for ubereats to run well, you have to have enough drivers, restaurants and customers. Clearly you do not have enough restaurants that signed up for ubereats, so the customers don't have enough places to order from, which means the drivers don't have enough business and look for work elsewhere instead of waiting around for your crappy orders.

That's exactly the same reason why it works well in Paris. There are plenty of restaurants, lots of customers in a dense area, and drivers with enough work to keep them going. On-demand services work very well in dense areas with lots of population, not in the countryside.

Ubereats is still currently in the red, along with all the other delivery services. None of them make money except for GrubHub, but that was last year and this year GrubHub is struggling as well.

Honestly, if this is the kind of marketing they have to resort to, they're much bigger trouble than just being in the red. I would think Uber would be leveraging their Postmates acquisition since that wasn't cheap

lol you expect to make an upper middle class wage doing braindead entry level work and you don't mind screwing over ever single customer with late orders and cold food while doing so. The platforms will catch on, you'll be banned, and have no sympathies
