Uber drivers are not employees of Uber but are independent contractors who use the Uber app to book rides with users. Drivers pick users up and drop them at their previously selected destination.

If you are looking for a flexible gig that lets you earn on your own time, then an Uber driving job is the temporary work that is perfect for you.

When drivers are ready they can click on ‘GO’ to start receiving requests from the nearby area. Drivers clicking on ‘destination mode’ will help make sure requests come from close-by locations. Once a driver receives a request, they have about fifteen seconds to review the details before accepting or declining according to their own preference.
