Yep, I was laid off from Uber. The reason? They had to run another background check. I’m all for safety and making sure there are quality Uber drivers on the road, but this process is not good (it can take weeks). I REALLY feel bad for the Uber drivers this effects whose primary (or only) source of income is Uber.
The background check process is slow and cumbersome, when it really should be handled in a much more efficient and respectful way. It seems that Uber and their background check consultant company (Checkr) do not share information. This process needs to be streamlined, and happen in the background WHILE DRIVERS ARE STILL ABLE TO DRIVE! I’m glad to be able to drive again (I have gone out a handful of times since I recorded this), but I wish this hadn’t transpired.
