Honestly, why do they feel the need to explain? There is literally no shame in it. It is a good way to make a living.

Uber promoting for Uber, lmao.


I mean you may say there is no shame in it. But society at large doesn’t think so. Think about how many jokes there are about people becoming baristas, bartenders, or McDonalds workers. There is a stigma associated with people who work in these jobs, particularly if the person working the job is not in their teens/early 20s


There’s no shame in driving Uber but there’s a lot of shame in a mega Corp lobbying hard to prevent giving benefits to drivers.


There's def a lot of stigma around being an Uber driver and what that means in terms of socioeconomic status. I don't blame them tbh


Probably side gig, and not first choice of primary income for most people.

It's not a good way to make a living. It's a good way to devalue your car by converting it to cash.

I typically ask them myself because I'm curious 🤷‍♂️

So if I apply to Uber and on my resume it says I drove for Uber for 6 months between jobs, you don’t think it would effect my application?

I always assume it's their only job. Now, I'm wondering if I'm a bad person for not thinking about their dreams, goals, and the rest of their life.

“I just do this for beer money.”

Some people just have certain biases and they are not comfortable with allowing others to form opinions about them that might not be true.

Am I the only person who doesn't like talking to Uber drivers? I honestly treat it like I would a tax ride or similar. I'm paying you for transportation, not to interrupt the code I'm mentally writing on my way to work.

I worked with drivers for some years & a lot of them just really like people and want to talk, so they use a few ice breakers. A lot were old taxi drivers, some were retirees that wanted to fill their time up with something, some had unconventional jobs and needed a back up. But mostly, a lot of them enjoyed talking to people & helping them, even if just with a ride or a comforting conversation (especially the retirees lol the older they were; the more they loved to talk during rides). You’d be surprised how therapeutic an Uber ride can be 😂

What’s a normal salary increase at a promotion from jr. AD to AD in NYC. During my yearly review I scored all exceptional and exceeded expectation and I was told I will be promoted shortly.

How frequently should one expect or advocate for a raise at a small firm? I moved to a new firm (about ten lawyers) about two and a half years ago. After my first year I got a 20% raise following a brief and exclusively positive performance review. Its been about 17 months since then and silence. I have the general sense that the firm struggled a little financially during COVID and I don't want to seem ungrateful or greedy, but apparently the firm is doing well enough to hire more associates.


Are these positive signs during the final round interview with the big boss i had today? 1) asked for my timeline and when i can start the earliest, 2) listed all the political challenges the team is facing today and neighboring teams that are difficult to work with. Am i over-reading?


I've been in the interview process w/my county's attys office for 3 months. Currently waiting for a final interview before a decision is made. It's been two weeks since my last interview with them. I had a missed call this morning. No VM was left, incoming calls not allowed nor any caller ID info. After a reverse lookup I found the specific attorney who the number belongs to. Would it be odd for me to contact her office directly and ask for her? Should I just wait & see if she calls again?


What do I say if a recruiter is refusing to tell me the salary budget for the role I'm interviewing for? They keep asking me for a number, but I keep asking what they value the role at and what their budget is, which they aren't willing to disclose until I give a number. 🤷🏻 What do I do??
