Uber driving is becoming more popular every day.
So is it safe and can girls do it?
There are many occupations that women do and nobody questions any more whether or not ‘girls can do it’. Driving jobs have traditionally been occupied by men. Buses, Trains and trams, Taxis, delivery vans and yes, Uber too.
It is unfortunate that there is a minority proportion of evil doers in the world who create scaremongering commonplace, often deterring women from some awesome opportunities.
I am an Uber driver and I love it!
I have only been driving for about 6 weeks but every single rider that I have collected and taken to their destination has been wonderful. Currently rated in the top 10% drivers, my riders obviously think I’m pretty cool too!
There are a few reasons to love working with Uber – yes, I am a partner not an ’employee’!
Uber pays on time and professionally every single week. I do not need to invoice them or anything. Everything is monitored and handled through their app.
Problems? Of course from time to time an issue may arise, a rider not show up or the wrong address entered etc.
Uber support is quick to respond and answers everything – nothing is too big or small. Every contact is handled with a friendly yet professional manner.
Do I feel safe?
You bet! And being a female driver, the ladies I pick up feel safe too – isn’t that great? A couple of times I have had a few ‘socially excited blokes’ needing to get home or to another venue but they have behaved themselves in my car.
All of my riders have received a 5 star rating from me and it looks as if they have reciprocated.
In March this year, Uber hosted their annual International Women’s Day celebration in Sydney (I hope there is one here next year!)
I joined Uber as a way to keep paying the bills while I work on building my own small business and it has been working out perfectly!
