I greet everyone very friendly and always end every trip friendly. After hearing the experiences of other passengers, I really wonder how I get 4 stars from some people. Rate cuts lead to shorter rides Uber drastically cut its rates over the last two years. You people are just as bad as Uber and morally bereft. If you leave a passenger anything less than 5 stars it is possible that they may immediately see a drop in their rating — before they rate you and before they have a chance to leave a tip. A one star rating would drop it far more than that.
This site is for entertainment purposes only. In many cities I find myself trying to avoid UberX entirely where possible and using local cabs again. Well I guess no one in the universe is to blame and he can just fill his tank with Karma for free then? If they go out of their way and do something spectacular, Im happy to tip them. Editorial Disclosure: The editorial content on this page is not provided by any entity mentioned herein. Now Uber drivers think they can get away with the same garbage using the rating system.
If you are seriously worried about getting a low rating because the driver suspects you may not tip — the only sure-fire way to avoid that is to give them a cash tip when you get out of the car. If you do not tip, you are not worth any drivers time… the rates are calculated to cover the car, the drivers time is always volunteered and that is why you tip. Your rating is the average of your previous 500 rides. Anyway I think the system needs to change. Have a heart and let them be worth your time. One or two constructive pointers is ok but let me do my job man! Just as a data point, I have also seen my rating drop after perfectly pleasant rides even some where I conversed with the driver and we got along. Drivers always felt the rating system was one-sided.
U dnt have to do a rider anything to receive a one star…buttholes r every where stop being so sensitive. While we do try to list all the best miles and points deals, the site does not include all card companies or credit card offers available in the marketplace. Phoning ahead becomes new form of cherry picking In order to avoid long drives to short rides, some drivers call their potential passengers before leaving to get them. And maybe most appallingly, up until the middle of last year Uber made riders think their ratings were of no consequence at all. Slam doors, you get four stars. If I want to take a phone call in an Uber I do. Or Uber only takes so many ratings into account, and an old 5-star rating fell off and was replaced by a slightly less old 4-star.
Me personally, by default, I give every passenger a 5 star rating. Hi, I had my first couple of uber rides and received a four star rating and five star rating. I have had biggest problems with foreigners particularly Indian females. Drivers are held to a gold standard of 4. It;s not like your fancy friends can see it.
I think a lot of us already do this by choosing day vs night, commuters vs partiers. He says 40 percent of the money he makes with Lyft comes from tips alone. I work 2 jobs and come home to my family tired hoping I can get my daughter a dress for graduation. Christmas Time I dress up like Santa Claus minus the beard and play Christmas Music. Given that my score dropped by 0. Therefore, if you do not condone this drivers retaliatory rating behavior and do not wish to be matched with him again, simply rate him a 1 star. I find some drivers rate me down for having a lot of luggage too, as if that were something I was easily able to control; I suppose those drivers would prefer I take a taxi if I have a lot of luggage but is that really in their best interest? However, drivers who simply say my name and then don't say a word the whole time, I don't tip unless the fare seemed cheap.
The scions have been involved in the company since as early as the 1980s, which Lee said made him confident in passing on the baton. I never expect tips, but I do expect a 5 star rating in return unless I do something that really deserves a lessor rating. In addition, it may not have been the previous ride. Tipping makes no difference although I do feel riders should tip. I feel bad rating someone lower if their dumbass friend is causing all the trouble.
But I have accepted a trip and then realized how low his rating was, a 4. I use Lyft whenever I can, and I even had some Uber drivers telling me I should do so because of how bad Uber is treating them. Drivers have asked to have the feature added to the app but it has fallen on deaf ears. Still, I have a very high rating. Please give us 1 star for that! And everyone—who is not a cheapskate—does tip them still. And what is so perverted about having non-sexual interactions with attractive females? Select drivers have mote expense. The point I am trying to make is that you are probably doing something wrong that you are unaware of.
Very simple to add a tip in the app. I always make a point to be courteous, ask them how their day has been, make sure I'm not talking loud to the person I'm with etc. It seems more to have been Average to Good. If a Uber driver decides to not pick me up because I have a bad rating I can always call a taxi. In addition to letting Uber and fellow passengers know which drivers are bad, the a low rating also ensures that you will never be matched with that driver again.
