good overall for flexible time working

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
this is a good place to work with as a freelance. you can choose time to work by yourself. when ever you free from your main job or as a main job.the money earned depends on the time that you work, in peak time you could earn more than 30 per hour. but in normal around 15-25

Pros

flexible work time

Cons

work alone as driver easy to bored

no good to do

Fun close-knit group. It was pretty stressful at times depending on peak season. Awful system to work on; very time-consuming and not user-friendly. Takes time to learn it. Great culture with the team.

Flexible hours

Great for working flexibile hours, meeting new people every day, mostly self managed, pay rate is average, enjoyable way to earn a wage by being out doors and appreciation of a small city.

Productive Fun

It was fun and good learning curve. Though job security wasn't great. Wages are pretty good and many benefits. Greta to start your career but may not be enriching and long term.

As casual as it gets

I had some health issues that prevented me from being a reliable worker. Uber was perfect for me to be able to work when I could and take time off when I couldn't

Good for extra work on top of a full time job

Only worth driving for uber eats if you do it on top of a main job and only drive when they are running promotions that make it worthwhile, otherwise your hourly will be very low

Only good thing in Uber is flexibility

Uber takes 30% & then you have to pay 20% gst & tax after fuel & other car maintenance, & driver work weekdays & weekends nights would’t get over $30 an hour 🥹

Flexible work, erratic pay

I worked for UberEats as a delivery driver. Since working with them, I have enjoyed the relatively relaxed pace of the work and the freedom provided by the gig economy structure that this business follows. My only issue is that the pay can be very erratic. It pays pretty well during peak mealtimes, but little to none at other times. As such, I would recommend this work for someone that is looking for extra, part-time work, but not as a means for replacing your primary income.

Every day is different, restaurant is also having their own system,

It pays moderately good money but may be at the end of the year after calculation of tax only A$12-13 per hour income which is very poor. No work go ubereats

Poor company support

Uber is a disgraceful and useless driver support service. There is no one to complain to who actually understands complaints and disputes. The product is very good and you work hard for your money, but the greed of Uber is unjust and unfair, based off poor driver support

Great Work/Life balance

UberEats driver here. Great work/life balance because YOU choose when to work. Pay is low/average but helps pay the bills or supplement your income. You work for yourself so require an ABN, pay your own taxes etc. The driver app that you use when working is terrible though! It’s not user friendly at all (compared to other food delivery companies).

Poor wages

Uber pay drivers in Sydney and Newcastle more per fare. It’s a low income in Wollongong. Average $20 ph after vehicle costs. They really only care about the riders not the drivers. Best part about the job, you set your own hours and days. Best flexibility. You are your own boss. You get to meet some interesting people !

Pros

Tips

Cons

Tiring and sometimes laborious and boring and some people are very rude

Poor management

Don't be honest with this company. Being honest you have no job. They don't care about employees. If you make any mistake your account is permanently closed.

Pros

Stressing dealing with management

Cons

Long hours and poor communication

Set your own hours

Great as you can set your own hours however the rating system is a bit too harsh. Hardly anyone rates your deliveries and to get more deliveries you have to have a high rating.

Pros

Own hours

Cons

Can go for a while without an order

The customer service is pretty bad.

The customer service is pretty bad. For example, it is a high tech company, but from it's app you won't think it is really a high tech company. Moreover, it's customer service is especially bad. Every time you make a call, an Indian person is talking to you, and their strange accent makes it very hard to understand what they are saying. And sometimes their customer service for Uber drivers is simply cut off, so you can't talk to someone for help directly and immediately but can only leave a message in the APP and then wait for a couple of days. All in all, a very bad company and I'll never work for it again.

Good to do when you have free time just don't take it too serious as a full time job.

It was good to start as a new driver they got a lot of incentive and easy to achieve for new driver, later it becoming mission impossible to achieve so my suggest is don't take it too serious as a full time job, do when you to earn extra.

Pros

Easy for new driver

Cons

If you trying to work everyday the incentive become unachievable.

A good job if you want to earn some extra cash

There's no minimum wage for this job--- you are essentially working as a contractor AND a sole trader-- zero reimbursements for maintenance and insurance policy can be trickyThe solo bike ride in and out of the city can be amusing however there are hours of boredom during non-peak hoursIf you want to earn some extra cash during the weekends outside Uni and work--this might be the job for you. However, working full time can be incredibly challenging especially financially.

Poor delivery earnings, too low and there is no hourly rate

Yes. First week had a $500 bonus for completing 50 deliveries before the end of that month. Was great but every week after slowly decreased delivery request until near null and void.

Pros

Choose your schedule.

Cons

Long hours, Low pay, no salary benefits, no sick leave, no entitlements.
